26th Birthdays & Such

Happy Monday!  I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend and feel as fat and relaxed as I do!  We spent Wednesday - Sunday at my parent's house in OKC and it was a whirlwind of 5 days.  First off, I became an aunt.  My adorable niece was born on Tuesday, November 26th.  

Welcome to the world, Lillian Grace! 

{The little nugget was only 1 day old here!}

The next day, she got to come home.  Of course we couldn't stay away from her and came over to see her cute face!  I dare someone to try and tell me she isn't the most adorable thing ever:


I completely understand why parents post 103,576 pictures of their babies or kids now.  I am heartbroken to be back in Houston again, but thankfully Christmas time is right around the corner and we will get to shower her with more love.

I also turned 26 this past Saturday!  But, I'm not sure why I added that "!" because I really wasn't looking forward to it.  Why is it that 26 just sounds so much older than 25?  I tried to make the most of it but drinking wine in the shower (one of my birthday rituals):


Ahh... one of life's little pleasures.  I highly recommend it.  I imagine drinking wine in the shower is how I will survive raising children one day.  We went to Red Prime Steak in Oklahoma City for dinner, and it was amazing.  I'm pescetarian, so I had salmon mignon and green chile mac and cheese, and of course, more red wine.  The atmosphere of the restaurant is so cool, which is why I probably always ask to go back there even though I don't eat meat:


As you are acutely aware of by now, I am obsessed with all things monogrammed.  I scored a Gigi NY monogrammed python iPhone case and a Charm & Chain tortoise shell necklace for the big 2-6.  


So all in all, it was a good birthday.  PLUS... it's going to be a pretty fab year, with getting married and all.  And no trip to OKC would be complete without seeing the Thunder play.  Here I am with a good friend of mine, Laura:


So tell me- how was your Thanksgiving?  Did you brave the Black Friday crowds?  Anything exciting to report?
