Thursday was my birthday [Happy Birthday to ME!]. Another year older and almost eight months into my first year as a mom. The day started with a couple of iced coffees and a trip to the playground before Mike had to go to work. I received a flower delivery from my mom and gramma in the afternoon and then Mike came home early so we could go out for a nice dinner at Walter Foods. Filet mignon and wine. After we put Ava to bed, Mike brought out my birthday cake. He chose a flourless chocolate cake [tortino di cioccolata] from the award winning Grandaisy Bakery in Soho that was DELICIOUS. I also got to do a bit of birthday shopping this weekend. This was probably one of my quietest birthdays [I’ve been known to celebrate loudly with lots of friends and wine] and definitely one of the best.
This week is going to be jammed packed with tips and finds! Tomorrow I’ll be sharing all my latest baby obsessions and Wednesday we’ll be focusing on getting your little ones to eat their vegetables. On Thursday, I’ll be posting more stylish maternity clothes [as this has been one of my more popular posts] and options for what to wear after your bundle of joy arrives. And on Friday I’ll share some beauty recipes you can easily make at home instead of paying for pricy store bought treatments. I’m also working on some more interviews with cool and interesting chicks for later in the month and starting next week, Mondays will be a new series titled “Wedding Bells”! Lots to look forward to, so be sure to keep checking back! Thanks to all of you for making Furious Shirley such a success! XO
