Conversation #133: You say it's your birthday

Yep, today is the day.  I turned 27 at 6:15 this morning (at least I think that was what time I was born). I realized this morning when I woke up on the couch because yes, I have a cold AGAIN, that this is the second birthday in a row I am sick.  Last year it was a migraine, and that was the start of my migraine treatment.  The good news: I only get migraines one week a month now versus everyday.  Want to guess what time of the month it is?  Yep, during Aunt Flo's visit, and I get to enjoy that right now as well!  I'm such a lucky girl.

Actually, I am.  I have a husband who loves me (although he could be a little more sympathetic to sickness, he just thinks everyone should suck it up and deal with it).  I love my family so much (all of them, I am blessed with awesome in-laws too).  I have a great job, and I'm making more and more friendships as the days go by.  I guess this pesky cold is just the least of my problems, but I still wouldn't mind it leaving so I could breathe freely again.  I feel bad for my coworkers who have to listen to my nose-blowing all day.

Due to the whole not feeling well thing, I got off a day on the fashion challenges.  Yesterday was try a trend, but really we are just all lucky I got up and put clothes on before going to work.  Today was "channel someone..." and I had a great outfit planned, especially for my bday, but since it is that time of the month I decided the idea of wearing tights was just too horrible.  Therefore, today I look sort of sloppy (still didn't get a ton of sleep last night) but I did the trend of buttons down the back.  I was afraid my coworkers would all give me a hard time and tell me my clothes were on backwards, but so far so good!  (Also, sorry the pics are little blurry and my face looks weird - I blame it on the stuff filling up my sinuses)

Outfit breakdown:
Sweater, Ann Taylor LOFT, $20
Brown Trousers, NY and Co., $20 ?
Heeled oxfords, Alfani via ebay, $17
Necklace, Coldwater Creek, $Free (had a gift card from doing market research, not sure I have mentioned that before)

Happy birthday!! I'm turning 27 this year too. It feels so very adult-y. And boooo to being sick on your day. That should be illegal.
