First of all, a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my gorgeous sister, Jessica.  She turns 26 today, one of my favorite years!  Love you so much and am looking forward to being able to celebrate every other birthday in the future with you!!

Speaking of Jessica, she sent me the best half birthday card yesterday.  Don’t mind if I do!

What else? Well, this week was partly a blur because all of the sudden I’m not sleeping much.  Well, scratch that.  I pass out super early every night but then proceed to wake up any time between 11pm and 2am and am usually up for two to three hours.  Then I go back to sleep and wake up naturally by 5.  Anyone have a newborn they want me to watch?  Because I might as well do someone a favor when I’m up these hours!  I’ve been reading Divergent (eh, not loving it so far) during this time, but unfortunately it still doesn’t always put me to sleep.

In more positive news, one of my favorite people and close friends Joanne asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding this fall, talk about honored!  I can’t wait to celebrate and eat lots of pumpkin filled foods at the event.
