Birthday and National Swimsuit Confidence Week Rolled into One

This month has been hectic. After chipping my tooth and spraining my wrist, shit never slowed down.

In May alone, there is mother's day, my birthday, my brother's birthday and my mom's birthday.

May 15th my boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday in a big way. He bought me jewelry. Beautiful jewelry that I couldn't love more, even if he made it himself. I'm a sucker for pearls and he finally made me an adult by getting me a necklace, bracelet and earring set.
Best present ever
After he gave me my gorgeous pearls, we got all gussied up and went out to a fancy Japanese restaurant for dinner. 
When did I become an adult? May 15th, 2012
The next day we went and saw the Avengers, which was absofuckinglutely amazing. We even sprung for the extra money to see it in 3D, which only added to the awesomeness. 

On May 17th, my actual birthday, my bestie and I went to the park, a playground, lunch, another park and a bar to get shitfaced. We succeeded in being passed out drunk by 8pm. Winning.

I pretty much had the best birthday ever. 

This past week, I also found out that I finally got a promotion. Starting May 25th I will be management. It's a long time coming, but holy crap I've been busy at work with training. 

Another amazing thing that kicks off this week is National Swimsuit Confidence Week! Land's End, Self Magazine and Curvy Girl Guide have partnered together for the second annual Swimsuit Confidence Week where women of all shapes and sizes all over the country pose online in their bathing suits. It's a great campaign really. I did it last year, and guess what? I'm putting my cellulite and fat rolls online this year too! 
Thanks to the crappy light, you can't tell my bottoms are navy and my top is black
I encourage everyone to participate in National Swimsuit Confidence week! Post pictures on your Facebook, blog, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr or even Myspace and leave your link here and over at  Curvy Girl Guide  to show your confidence!
