I was born on July 7 so I legitimately have a reason why 7 is my lucky number. Sorry I just had to said that. It's okay if other people want to claim that number too but I'm still going to be a snob about it.

Today is July 1 and it is officially my birthday month. I usually treat myself with some online shopping and take advantage of the 4th of July sales going on. I also take advantage of the discount and free coupons in my emails for my birthday. It pays to join rewards. 

When I was younger, my parents would plan my birthday and then when I turned 14, I threw a party but only a handful of people showed up and it really made me sad. So from then on, I decided to not put effort into throwing a party for myself. If people want to celebrate it with me, they can take me out or plan it for me but I won't be the one initiating it. Fortunately, I've had boyfriends and good friends who have done the planning for me because they are just awesome. 

Now that I am married, my loving husband always plans something big for me. He spoils me and plans months ahead. This year, we are going camping for 4 nights in a cabin by the beach. I'm really excited. My baby will also turn 5 months old that day. 

I'll blog with some pictures after the trip. Outer Banks, here we come!
