My “31st” birthday and Thirty-One party (they’re easily confusing…)

Sometimes I wonder about my parents. They read my Facebook posts (thank God they don’t have Twitter!) and take them out of context, call me, and then I have to explain it to them. For instance, my dad apparently read this post on Facebook:

facebook status

Afterward, I got a phone call from my mother saying “So I heard you’re having a birthday party this weekend. Thirty one?” “Um, no mom. Thirty-One is a company that sells cute bags, totes, and organization stuff. Besides, you know my birthday is in JULY and I’m only 26!!!”


Apparently it’s my 31st birthday and I don’t even know it. My parents are crazy. I had to explain the awesomeness that is Thirty-One and tell them how excited I was for this party…

Get your Thirty-One fix now! Purchase now from 6/2-6/9/2013! This month's special is "spend $35 and get the large utility tote for $10 (reg $35!)"

I was so excited for my party that I may have gotten carried away with my cleaning. Mathew and I cleaned the whole apartment for over 2 hours (I even cleaned baseboards!) because I always want my place to look clean when friends come over.

I made cookies and a yummy cream cheese/marshmallow fluff fruit dip and bought some tea for the party. It wasn’t much, but hey- we’re on a budget!

I had a great time and I was so glad that the party went well! I know several of you have mentioned to me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram that you wish you could’ve come to the Thirty-One party. I’ve got good news for you!


I had my lovely consultant, Amy, keep my Thirty-One party open so YOU could shop it! It’s only going to be open until Sunday, June 9th so DON’T MISS OUT!
