Treat Yourself Tuesday: Birthday Treats

It's now been just over a month since my 33rd birthday so I today I'm linking up with Becky to share some of the ways I treated myself during my birthday month.

A babysitter for girls night. I set plans with some girls from school, and then E had last minute travel come up. Normally I would have tried to reschedule, but knowing that I was going be on my own with all three girls for a few days I checked with our babysitter and she was able to watch the big two while Baby C and I headed out for dinner and dessert. Because at Cafe Latte you have to do dessert :)

A babysitter for date night. We were out of town a lot around my actual birthday, but we were able to set up a babysitter for later in the month. We had gift cards for the Blue Plate Restaurant Company, and decided to check out Scusi. We ended up sitting outside, and it got a little chilly, but the food was good (the zeppole we had for dessert was super tasty!) and the service was even better. Baby C was along for date night, so the waitress told us our drinks were on the house to celebrate our new little lady. So nice!

A bunch of washi tape from Freckled Fawn. Thanks to Heather for telling me about the sale! One dollar washi tape was too good to pass up!

A haircut. My hair is thick to start with, so during pregnancy it gets a little extra crazy. My hair finally started falling recently, and I am so thankful. I was also thankful to get a night away to get my hair cut recently. I only had a few inches taken off, but it feels so much better. Any curly haired Twin Cities friends, I highly recommend checking out The Hive.

A gym membership. I cancelled my gym membership shortly after Miss A was born, and hadn't been back since. We got an elliptical for the house and I started running. Great options much of the time, but I decided that while I'm home for the year I wanted to go to the gym again. Best decision. I started going two weeks ago, and I am loving it. Miss A and Little J enjoy the child care activities and I like that they can burn off a little energy there, especially now that it's cold and snowy. Baby C seems to like it too, or at least is sweet to the workers. I'm super excited to be going to Body Pump again. I used to go all the time and loved it. And I still love it now.


  1. Sounds fun! Birthdays should always be celebrated for a whole month :)

  2. Love this post! Bodypump + dessert from Cafe Latte = perfection!

  3. Birthday month is the way to go!! Nice celebrating! :)

  4. Ooooh dessert, a hair cut and BODYPUMP sound like perfect treats! Thanks for linking up!

  5. I haven't found too many uses for washi tape. I love the look though. I used some to decorate the house. How do you use them?

    1. I send a lot of mail, so I use it on envelopes a lot. I also use it in my planner. My newest use is to label leftovers before they go in the fridge.

  6. I love birthday's that are a month long. The washi tape you got is so cute. :)
