Five on Friday {March 20, 2015}: It's B's Birthday!


Yay, my birthday is finally here! I'm keeping today's post short so that I can focus on all of the celebrating, but of course, I have to share my five (birthday-related!) favorites!

 
Ice cream lunch

Because nothing says 32 like celebrating your birthday with some ice cream! T is meeting me at the office to take me out to a birthday lunch, and obviously we have decided that we will be having ice cream for lunch because that is a totally normal and acceptable thing for adults to do. The rest of the day's plans are a surprise for me, so I'm excited to see how it turns out!

Paaaaarty

Tomorrow night is my big birthday night out on the town with friends, and I couldn't be more excited to see everyone! As usual, the party has a theme, and I'll be revealing it in a full party post next week (or you can follow us on Instagram for a sneak peek tomorrow night). M is coming into the city for the party and has also created some fantastic printables for the gift bags and straws!

Extraterrestrial Abduction Day

Apparently I share my birthday with Extraterrestrial Abduction Day (who knew?!) so here's hoping I manage to stay on Earth while turning 32!

Birthday treats

I have been mapping out all of the birthday freebies I need to take advantage of (because as we know, everything functions best with a list and a spreadsheet) - I will definitely be stopping by Starbucks and Dunkin for free coffees today, plus I've already picked up my Sephora goodies. I'm hoping to pop into 16 Handles and/or Pinkberry for some free birthday yogurt, though that may be tough to plan around the birthday ice cream lunch :)

First day of spring

Oh yeah, in addition to being my birthday, today is also the first day of spring! NYC still hasn't quite gotten this memo considering it's actually SNOWING today, but the weather tomorrow is supposed to be much warmer and sunnier so hopefully things will continue to move in that direction. I hope you all have beautiful weekends filled with some spring sunshine!
