Kristi was unable to make it to Subeez on Sunday (babysitters are hard to come by) so I invited them to lunch with my Mom on Monday! My mom refuses to be photographed so Isabel made for some enjoyable picture taking. They also arrived with mini cupcakes! Trying to keep those away from Isabel was quite the task but I didn't want to be responsible for baby's first sugar high.
Monday evening was dinner with my Dad and siblings. The one thing I love about birthdays is that it's an excuse to get far more dressed up then needed for a dinner out. Please tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way!
Wearing: Zara dress, Sterling shoes
My mom has been dabbling in cake decorating and has gotten really great at it! She made me a fashion themed cake to bring to dinner which I thought was adorable. It also tasted amazing (the purse was confetti cake and the shoe box was chocolate).
Now that I've posted all of my pictures my birthday is officially over. Shucks! I had the most amazing weather on Monday but on Tuesday the skies turned grey. I have been going crazy wanting to shop for clothing for fall but I know I need to do an inventory of my closet before I do so. Now all I need is the motivation to sort through clothes. I wonder if I could get some girlfriends over to help me if I bribe them with wine?
Happy Birthday Melissa! We must almost be birthday twins.ReplyDelete
I feel the same about dressing up! Check out what I wore for my birthday on Tuesday night: http://www.youreverydaystylist.com/blog/?p=2954
Happy belated birthday! That cake looks amazing! Your dress is super pretty also.ReplyDelete
I can't believe your mom made that cake! That's amazing. Your Zara dress is gorgeous (just love that pretty tulip shape) and the print is so special! Is it recent?ReplyDelete
I find it so odd (but awesome) that almost all of us Vancouver bloggers have birthdays around the same time. There must be something in the stars for virgos and blogging ;)
Have a great weekend lovely and hope to see you soon!
Yum. Your mom needs to start a business. Those cakes look amazing (and the purse looks good enough to carry!).ReplyDelete
I'm with you on the overdressing. I definitely wore a black sequined dress (the entire dress was covered in sequins) to the town Applebee's one year for my birthday. Who cares? It's your birthday, and you looked super cute! Happy belated birthday!
