I cringed a little when I wrote that title, mostly because it suggests that I’m big into my Birthday and, frankly, I’m not. Zach and I both share January birthdays and we joke about getting a half-birthday-month each, but that’s just in jest. Our bdays are just too close to the holidays (same for poor bean)…oh and we’re getting old too, so yeah…
What I want out of a birthday (or any day for that matter) is at the end of it to feel like it was a good day. And I’d say last Thursday was exactly that.
I was highly productive at work, took off a couple of hours early to browse some stores, get a latte, and then get a pedi. I came home to a very chipper Bean, flowers from my bestie, and soon after Thai and cupcakes from Zach:
Yes, those are little shoes on the cupcakes. I had the coconut and pawned off the rest on Zach’s coworkers.
Saturday night I had lovely plans with my friend Mojan to hit up the city to see a parody of 50 Shades of Grey. We visited a (new to me) wine bar called Amelie. Loved it. They had fantastic happy hour specials and I tried a hefty assortment of tastes. Seriously so good. The show was hilarious. Just 3 actors, essentially Christian Grey, Ana Steele, and the author. They definitely knew what to make fun of. One of the best part of the nights? Getting to wear my beloved saucy red heels:
And Sunday was lovely as well, despite finding out I have to cough up $500 to fix my MacBook (screen is cracked). I made some fabulous (lower cal) pumpkin scones and a delish lentil soup.
So all in all, nothing too crazy, but a lot of nice little things that made the whole weekend pretty darn spectacular.
Let’s hope the rest of the week goes the same way
