Five on Friday: {January 30, 2015}


Hey Gals! Happy Friday and Happy Birthday Weekend to me, haha! Even though I started the celebrations last weekend, birthday brunching with B, my actual birthday is this Sunday (yup, Super Bowl Sunday!).  I’ll try my best not to be too much of a birthday brat, though I hope you don’t mind indulging me in a little birthday love for my five favorites of the week!

Birthday Dinner


Since as I mentioned above, my actual birthday falls on Super Bowl Sunday, I’ll be celebrating on Saturday night with a fancy dinner out in Princeton.  We’re lucky to only live about 30 minutes away from Princeton, so GG made a reservation at The Peacock Inn for a delicious meal and of course, a couple of fancy cocktails.  And a big shout out to Sister M for babysitting for us – thanks K, love you!

Birthday Fashion

A fancy birthday dinner wouldn’t be complete without an equally fancy dress to wear, so I was very excited to cash in on my free birthday dress rental, courtesy of Rent the Runway.  I’ve mentioned this in the past, but one of the perks of being a RTR pro includes a free dress rental during your birthday month, and this year I went with this fabulous number from Rachel Roy.  Since it’s beyond frigid, I opted for long sleeves so I don’t freeze too badly, and plan to jazz this up with lots of fun accessories.

Birthday Wish List


Tieks //  Gigi Crossbody // Goldy Glasses  //  RBL Polish // Nars Palette

A birthday also isn’t complete without lots of gifts! B already spoiled me with some amazing presents, but I wouldn’t mind terribly if I opened one of these babies up on Sunday. I've been lusting after Tieks for way too long now, and that purple GiGi Crossbody is seriously calling my name.

Birthday Indulgence

I decided to extend my birthday festivities for one additional day, and have a “me” day on Monday.  I took off from work and have big plans to get a massage, blog in bed with my coffee and do a little crafting.  While that may sound like a snoozefest to some, this mama cherishes a little me time whenever she can steal it, so I’m super excited to unwind a bit to cap off the birthday fun.
My Actual Birthday, aka Super Bowl Sunday

Yes this is the third time in one post I’m mentioning my birthday falls on the Super Bowl, and no, I’m not bitter at all – haha! But I do seriously like football, so I’m excited to watch the big game on Sunday with some delicious food and cocktails and cheer on the Seahawks (sorry Patriots fans, but we’re a Jets household, so no way we could cheer for Team Deflate Gate!). Plus, I’ll get to enjoy a birthday concert from Katy Perry during halftime, what could be better?!

What are your weekend plans?! Are you excited for the Super Bowl, or just for the commercials and a little Katy Perry?

  6. Happy Birthday, M...enjoy!! I have also been lusting after Tieks, but have had too many uncomfortable flats fails to take the plunge! Have any of you gals tried them? Hope you open up a pair, M! I'll look for your review :)

  7. Happy Birthday!! Hope you have a wonderful day. I'm glad you took a day just for yourself. That is always fun. I'm not really into football and I'm not a Patriots fan (and I'm from boston) so I haven't decided if I will watch it or not.

  12. Happy early birthday! what a score with your bday dress :) Im definitely looking forward to sundays game and watching Lenny Kravitz perform (had a 90s crush on him) and Im also cheering for the Seahawks!

  13. Happy Birthday Weekend!! One of my best friend's birthdays is also on Super Bowl and we are headed out on the town to celebrate her special day on Saturday as well!! BUT, I think Super Bowl is an awesome way to celebrate your birthday because Super Bowl parties definitely usually come with lots of great food, drinks and fun with friends... what more could you ask for?! I have no idea who to cheer for this year... I am a Giants fan so cheering for the Patriots seems out of the question, but I also don't want to see the Seahawks win 2 years in a row... too bad it can't end in a tie! I am really just hoping the commercials are better this year because last year they were kind of lame!

  21. Happy Birthday! That is the perfect dress for your birthday. Also, I love your idea of going to get a massage the next day and having "me" time, I need to do that for my next birthday.
