Saturday was my official 50th birthday. And I have to say, it was the most epic birthday ever. That is due entirely to my husband, with an assist from our son and two of my cousins. You know how usually, if someone is being thrown a surprise party, they inevitably get suspicious. I had no idea. No. Freakin’. Clue. And this wasn’t just any surprise party. My husband had painstakingly assembled just about every person I love most in the world in one room at a local restaurant; all because he loves me and wanted nothing more than to make me happy. He said that his favorite part was when I squealed when he opened the door. Believe me, I did. When I saw all of those people and I knew they were there because they love me, my heart melted. And like I said, it was a thousand times better because I had no idea what was happening. As you get older, you realize life is more about memories and experiences than anything else, and my 50th birthday party will be one of those memories I cherish the most for the rest of my days.
And what better outfit to be sportin’ during one of the most sentimental beautiful moments of your life than a moto jacket, boyfriend jeans and studded camo boots? Come on, did you expect any less of me? I thought we were going out for dinner and drinks, but you know I would have worn this even had I known. I relentlessly hunted these ankle booties down on Ebay after seeing them on Instagram. I do believe this is their premier appearance on the blog, and ain’t that a cryin’ shame? Are they not crazy fierce? The studs, the buckles, the camo…I die.
