Something Special for My Birthday

I have to apologize for not updating my blog lately. I've just been so busy working, traveling, running... it's been a crazy few weeks.

Here are a few highlights:
  • Chapin and I spent a long weekend in Phoenix over Easter weekend. Local Marketing, Inc. may be opening up a second office there in the near future. Chapin and I had fun exploring the terrain -- yes, we even did a mini-hike in Papago Park -- and attending a lavish birthday party for my business partner's niece. It was so much fun!
  • At the end of April, I ran the Lauren's Run 5K and earned a gold medal (for the 40-49 age group). It was sixth year running this 5K -- and my first gold for this particular race! It's a tough course, with almost the entire second mile going uphill. Sheesh!
  • If I look a little tan, it's because Chapin and I just got back from a trip to the Turks & Caicos. We went for a wedding, but made a vacation out of it, and had so much fun!
And, of course, today is my birthday. 41 years old! I still can't believe I'm in my 40s.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Badgley Mischka Floral Pleated Cocktail Dress

I love everything about this dress, so I wanted to wear it on my birthday. I adore the neckline and cap sleeves, and the print is even prettier in person, tinged with gold and in a beautiful blue color. It's the perfect dress for a May spring day! It even has pockets.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Baxen Glitter Peep-Toe Gold Wedge Pumps in Gold
