Hello lovelies! I blog today filled with all the love I received (near and far) for my birthday yesterday. It was one of my most-low-key birthdays to date, but enjoyable nonetheless. Friday when Ethan got home from work (with our rental car (he hates to bum rides)), he took me to the post office where this pair of Frye boots (the Jackie Button in Whiskey to be exact) was waiting for me! After trying them on (as well as some new pieces from Free People and Anthro), I took a quick shower and we went out for dinner and a movie. We ate breakfast food and saw Gangster Squad with rather full bellies. We came home to a rather frantic Simon, and I gave him lots of hugs and kisses to make up for our absence.
Saturday Ethan told me I had to go out and shop (gasp!) around five, and I had my suspicions. He had been pretty quiet about the weekend/birthday plans, so I knew something was cookin’ in that head of his. I did my hair and makeup quite leisurely, and as I settled in to catch up on Downton Abbey, I noticed the weather was pretty nasty…as in raining and blowing like crazy! I was pretty nervous to drive all the way downtown alone, and I even freakin’ fell in the parking lot (rain + ice + no gravel = disaster), but once I was on the highway I did alright. I spent a ton of time browsing Nordies and Circular, but of course, I left with nothing. I rolled back into the apartment complex around seven, and Ethan was waiting for me at the door.
Inside, all our friends were gathered and started singing “Happy Birthday” for me! There were streamers and balloon animals and a very awesome cheeseburger and french fry birthday cake. We ate pizza, drank beer, and played Catch Phrase for hours. The friends stayed until midnight to properly wish me a happy birthday. Ethan, Simon, and I crawled into bed, with rain still coming down outside.
I woke up yesterday waaay before Ethan. I putzed around on my Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook accounts until I decided to suit up in rain-wear to take Simon outside. Ethan made me pancakes while I flipped through the latest House Beautiful, and I even made a doggie sweater for Simon before tuning in to Sunday night television with a big slice of cake.
Oh and throughout the entire weekend I munched on the delicious macarons my sister sent me. Such a treat! How did you spend your weekend?
