inspiration monday: happy birthday, chris

the inspiration
shakira

megan bird



jeans, jacket ~ Target
shoes, belt, hat ~ thrifted
tank ~ Kohls

today i would like to wish a very happy birthday to my best friend in the world. chris, welcome to 40...you wear it well!

if you follow me on instagram, you know what we did on friday. if you don't (you should!), here's a little breakdown...

breakfast, trapeze, seafood lunch (for chris, i ate veggies), bowling, blues and beer, and nachos in bed.

yes, i said trapeze, and it was amazing. we were both terrified and thrilled at the same time, probably more terrified. if you want to see a funny video of me screaming a lot, watch me do my best trapeze moves here. it was a once in a lifetime thing to do, and the only reason i could bolster the courage to do it was because chris was with me. yes, that's cheesy, but it's also 100% true.

so happy birthday, my love. thanks for flying with me. i love you!

xo,
megan bird

  4. Happy birthday Chris! Megan, I had to visit so that I could watch you do your stunt again. I loved it, and Chris' chuckle on the video is the best. Loved your scream. Admirably, Dawn btw, you know you look fab and extra skinny in that last pic...xoxo

  7. I wanted to do this look so badly. I have no jeans that fit well right now though! I LOVE your sparkly top - it's even cuter than Shakira's! Happy birthday to your hubby!

  8. Wow, Megan you did that Trapeze so well! How many times had you practiced that before the video. If you say 'never, that was our first time' I will say, 'GET OUT OF TOWN!' You did that very well. I love your shoes this day. Awesome! Darling ensemble. Get this: I didn't try to use the inspiration photo, it just worked with what I wanted to wear today. funnnny. oh well!

  12. I like that your jeans are a bit more fitted. Shakira's were a little too loose for my liking. HAppy Birthday Chris!

  18. Happy Birthday to Chris! Hah! 40 is still so young!
    You look adorable in your outfit. I haven't checked out all the others yet, because I only just woke up and dealt with getting my link set up properly. I had to go to bed before you had your Monday post up and with my issues I sleep a lot. I hope you've had a happy, sparkly day!

  19. hahahaha, Yes, that is does happen. Just the other day I was so shocked to see a shirt in my closet that I had zero memory of buying, owning or shopping for it. I went back to my list {I write everything down that I buy and the price differences - primarily for my posts and taxes and stuff} and there it was! I had bought it for .99¢ back in November. Zero memory of even anything about it. LOL

  25. I'd love to try trapeze but I'm afraid I'd pull some muscle that hasn't been used since my pre-teen gymnastics days. I love your shoes and I think I like your look better than Shakira's!

  26. I've always wanted to try the trapeze - it looks like so much fun! Those shoes are fabulous! And I love that you guys make such a big deal out of birthdays - I need to do that more!

  27. Megan, I am all about mixing Winter Stuff with Sparkles, Sequins and Fun Heels and I love Hats. So if you know me, I would wear this Outfit or something similar (I pinned it). I am glad hubby had a good birthday.
