Las Vegas Birthday

I have lots to talk about, and lots of pictures so I will be posting all about it in the upcoming days. You can see a gallery of all my Instagram photos here on my site or check them out on Instagram.

However, my last grocery run was for juicing purposes so I did have an abundance of kale and spinach taking up way too much space.
