I am not going to lie, it has been crazy around here. I thought I was on top of my game with post planning, but I am not. I am pretty much not around the next two weeks (to write) and I thought I planned better. I will still be able to answer comments and read your posts, but it is hard to write full posts while I am on the road. Ugh. 

Anyways, onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. Today is my birthday. Yep. I didn't even plan a post like I did the last couple years. I did write a great one for my 34th birthday with 34 things about me. I probably should have done that again, but life has been kicking me in the pants. Ha.

I am not a big birthday person. I like to be acknowledged, but I never go all out for my birthday. Maybe for my 40th? So what do I have planned for my birthday? Tonight, I am going to have dinner and drinks with my friends. Rory couldn't find a sitter for tonight, so he said I should celebrate with my girlfriends. I am totally ok with that. And then tomorrow night, he has something big planned for me. Dinner, drinks and a night out!!

TWO. As I said above, we are sooo busy this month. I have an appointment, a vacation, work travel or something almost everyday this month. Just take a look. Every dot means that I have something going on everyday. Most days have several things. I told you August was a busy month.


THREE. While we were in LA, I made a pit stop to The Grove. We needed something to do, Rory has never been, the fountain is pretty there and I promised the girls cupcakes from Sprinkles. Ha. But my real reason for going there was the Uncommon James pop-up store. I have been wanting a pair of Girl Boss earrings and didn't want to pay for the shipping. Nor did I want to wait for them to arrive. And I couldn't decide between the medium and large.

Well, we went to the Grove and I was able to try on the earrings. Don't worry, they sterilize and sanitize them after each try on. Well after trying on both pairs, I went with the medium ones. They are more for everyday use and are sooo pretty. Plus they aren't heavy at all, so you can most definitely wear them all day.
