It's My Birthday!

Can I count the whole weekend as a giant 26th birthday festivus? I'm going to!

So far: had a smooth day at work on Friday after a window-smashing incident on Thursday, went out to dinner with Michelle of Wicked Whimsy and Indiana of Adored Austin at Koriente, attended the Fashion Freakout at Mohawk with those lovely girls and my friend Katie, drank free vodka cocktails, got great pictures being front and center during the show, (so great I'm even in the news page's pictures with my camera snapping away), drooled over the swag bags that were so close yet so far, said hi to Tolly because I think she's great too, then got a free beer at the Dog & Duck Pub because the bar tenders there ROCK, then Lennon made my tipsy-self spiced potatoes and a fried egg for a 3AM snack.  Then today, lunch at my FAVORITE place: Taco Bueno with Michelle and her husband, Lennon made me mac n'cheese for dinner, and I'm working on a chipotle chocolate cake with Nutella-cream-cheese frosting I can hopefully feed to some chocolate loving friends.  Then it's downtown time!  Woot!

I got one picture of myself with three beautiful girls, and it turned out completely white!  I'm so sad...  (Luckily my gazillion photos of the show turned out great, expect to see lots of those soon).  And since it's my birthday and all...

I'll cry if I want to!

Or whine about the sun being in my eyes during photo time.  Now back to my cake baking.  Happy February 6th!  And if you're a follower of my blog, or a commenter, or a lurker who only shows up in my stats, then I just want you to know that you are the best birthday "gift" a blogging girl could ever ask for!  Thank you so much for coming by.

Oh, and the second best present is definitely the worm composting kit my dad and step-mom got me.  I can not WAIT to get started making dirt!!  I'm going to have a gorgeous tomato plant for my salsa.
