Happy Wednesday!!

This week is extra special because it’s my birthday week. I turn 29 this week, wohoo! How will I celebrate you ask? Hopefully 10 minutes of peace and quiet on the couch. That would be dreamy.

But I won’t count on it 😂

I’m definitely making myself a cake. Problem is, I can’t decide which one! My personal fave is German Chocolate cake. But I’m constantly craving other flavors too. (Like my Funfetti Cake!)  I’m sensing the cake flavor will be a last minute decision.

This next picture is too cute not to share. Will got his hair cut last week! This kids’ hair grows so fast (and it’s quite thick too). He’s starting to be a pro though. The kid has to get haircuts every 6-8 weeks like his dad and older brother.
