I know, I know, but let me tell you about this amazing place called Burger Jones! Oh wait, you already knew?!? I sure hope so!
Well let me start by showing off my new living room furniture! It took Sam and I a pretty long time to find the pieces we knew we absolutely loved. And we looked almost everywhere there was to look in the Twin Cities. But you know what it all came down to? Macy’s furniture store in Edina!

My mother-in-law came over and we went to Sur la Table at 50th and France, and got the rest of the beautiful silverware set that my in-laws have me for my Birthday!

We also got some frozen yogurts at the Yogurt Lab, and the Chili Chocolate is to die for! So is salted carmel 🙂 YUM

Now we are getting to Burger Jones 😉 After one “Big Sloppy Kiss”

Surprisingly enough I had room for dessert! Which was on the house!

If you are wondering about the dress 😉 I like it, but it has this really awkward length, and the pleats don’t go all the way down, so it looks a bit off if you take a closer look!

{27 DRESSES} Dress 1: It’s my Birthday

Have you seen that Birthday episode of How I met your Mother, where Lilly goes –

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

?

And I am actually excited to be 27! But 26 has been really good to me! I like my job, I love blogging, I really feel like BeingZhenya.com has actually gotten somewhere over the past year, and it’s only going to continue developing and being there for you, to hopefully inspire and encourage you! We got a house, I mean who would’ve thought that a small town girl from Russia would actually be living far far away from home and doing what she loves!

I do get an occasional hater who comments and says – Zhenya, you moved all the way from Russia, now work at a day care, shop at thrift stores, your life sucks. And even though those comments get deleted, I just want to tell you, that life is what you make out of it, and I feel like my life is just beginning now, and it’s wonderful. I hope you all have a wonderful day today, and a wonderful life. And now a few shots from my Birthday that we celebrated with my family yesterday!

Enjoy,

Xo,
