Birthday weekend...a recap...complete with soccer, tennis, friends, food, presents and too much birthday cake!

So I just had the most fun birthday weekend! This is the first time in my life that I've taken the day off of work to celebrate my birthday and I think I started a new tradition. As KJ, so wisely once said, 'you didn't work on your first birthday...why would you work on any others?!" So true KJ! Saturday I had a blast at the book launch party for my great friend Kris' artist book 'Things I Wanted to Tell You". I walked away with a signed copy of the book and 3 prints. I am working on hanging them in the dining room (pics to come). So great to see old friends that have moved away...it was smokin hot that day but it just added to the generally wonderful party.

When I got home there was little package waiting for me...a Kate Spade package I might add. Of course it was a gorgeous gift from the always too generous KJ. You can't even imagine how much I love my new idiom bangle bracelet with extremely appropriate 'Clean Slate' engraving. I can't imagine a more wonderful gift! Thank you so much KJ. Actually everyone was too generous. Adriane got me the most adorable cupcake mug...and Laura...well, how are you going to go wrong with an e-gift card to JCrew.

I included a few other pics...Chris finished the garage which looks fabulous. And since he finished, he rewarded himself by playing some soccer with his buddies (here he is cleaning off his cleats :)

The weather was wonderful all weekend...thanks to everyone who made this another amazing birthday!


  1. i'm so glad you had such a super weekend...and even better that you took the day off! i hope you have nothing but the best this year!
