A happy birthday to me =) Closet cleansing coming up!
I spent the day... at work, till the late afternoon when I headed over to DMV to renew my license, which expired this year on my birthday. Luckily didn't have to wait too long there.
Then, husband made me a delicious dinner and dessert at home (I have a limited diet and don't eat out much) and we watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall, one of our like top three movies. We went to the Turtle Bay Resort when we were in Hawaii and have been wanting to watch it again!

I always like wearing something bright and cheerful and cute on my birthday! I painted my nails for this one, too.
The real festivities are this Saturday, hanging out with some friends and making another special meal.
Aside from that, I have big goals this weekend. Despite the fact that I've gone through it a lot recently, my closet is just TOO full and I think I'm finally ready to be one of those people who can count the number of shirts, pants, jeans, etc. that they own. I've been a clothes horse since high school and keep accumulating! And, of course, wear 20% of my clothes 80% of the time, probably, as they say. I think I want to do it a little differently this time: instead of pulling out stuff I don't want, I want to go through and pick out the items that I DO want, as if I were packing for a trip. Then, the rest of it... I don't know if I can bear to part with it all yet, so I may put it in boxes and store it for a while. See if I miss it!
I'm tired of causing avalanches whenever I put away jeans or pajamas, and I want a new dresser. Until I have the closet of my dreams, I long for the simplicity of a normal person's closet. These next pictures are quite embarrassing...
