Today, I turn 22

Friday, December 31

Shoes: Simply Vera Wang via Kohl's, Pants: F21, Top: c/o YesStyle, Sweater: Kohl's, Necklace: Kohl's 
I'm a double digit baby. That means this year is gonna be magic. Filled with milestones that may or may not end up being significant steps in the big-girl direction. Woah.
For now though, I'm ringing in my lucky doubles with an afternoon at the Plaza ice rink and then I'm gonna put on my party dress and shake it. And blow out my candles. And eat my favorite food. And listen to people sing to me. I tell you, I was born for birthdays.
HA. get it? BORN for birthdays?

OK that was dumb.

Anyway. Happy New Year everyone! And thanks in advance for the fabulous fireworks show.
Really, you shouldn't have.

Mariel Torres said...

what a perfect day to have your birthday in! i hope this coming year is absolutely marvelous and full of wonderful new adventures.

Sydney said...

I must say, the similarities between us are striking:

your name is sydney- my name is sydney

your birthday has fireworks- my birthday has fireworks (I was born on

July 24th, only a holiday in Utah.. but still)

you are a graphic design major- I used to be a graphic design major... OK kinda stretching it now.

Anyway, Happy Birthday!

NikkiVikki said...

P.S.- I loooove that sweater.

Laura said...

I have a been a fan for a while...but haven't wanted to admit to being a Sydney groupy (not that it's a bad thing!)....which is why I've never commented on a post.

Really, it's me not you. I just would like to think of myself as an individual that doesn't get addicted to anything...but ...sigh...in the end I must admit...your blog is pretty addicting.

Anyway, now that the long explanation (as to why this is my first comment) is done with! I'd like to say...

Happy Birthday Sydney! May you be blessed with a year filled with much joy, laughter, and love!
