steal the nose right from under your eyes

hip hip and hoorah for this weather, am i right or am i right?!

i'm ready to finally share my birthday weekend with you, and it started as all great periods of time start; with a cake!

birthday cake

i made my very own birthday cake because i could. and a world where a girl can't make her own delicious cake is a very cruel world indeed. most, if not all, great times include friends, so i invited mine over to enjoy cake and have a drink or two or more and then somehow (i know exactly how) this ended up as a 90's hits dance/sing party. there is one picture to share:

wiw: march 12, 2010 - night

weird on so many levels but does show the intensity we were bringing as a group. we went to karaoke at trash bar which wasn't actually karaoke but a metal show (next time i'll call in advance). oh, and in case you were wondering why its called trash bar:

so! then my dear friend kaitlin slept over and made me the best birthday breakfast. we're talking RESTAURANT QUALITY here folks!

birthday breakfast

naomi kaitlin and i savored the amazing brunch and then we had to put on some lady outfits to enjoy afternoon tea (how i chose to enjoy my adult birthday). naomi and i arrived on time despite the pouring rain and jiwon and denise were already waiting for us

tea party!

the place was so warm and magical and smelled SO GOOD. there were incredible candles and fresh flowers everywhere. maylis arrived and we were ready to be transported to lady land!

tea time!

take our picture!!

somehow everyone except for jiwon thinks that dressing like an adult means wearing all black. they fed us five courses of tea food and by the end we were basically bursting. the best part for me was, duh, the tea, but also: TINY SANDWICHES.


pouring tea

it was really so magical and i was so happy to have my friends there to share it with me, even if the waiter wasn't as pleased (he HATED us)

here i am making the best of the rain:

best picture of the night

and then the night went on and on and on (i really don't recommend drinking four loko EVER) and somehow ended as most great nights end:

somehow after getting 2 hours of sleep and laying on the floor with my heart pounding all day, i managed to somehow study or just at least read for a midterm i had on monday. i crossed myself before i took the test and god really pulled out all the stops by granting me with a 94 on the test. thanks for looking out big dude. and i'm just content. working on some stuff regarding the happy cuties brand. working on some personal things. working some things out in my brain. enjoying idol more than ever (maybe i always enjoy it to the maximum actually) seeing both my parents this weekend. being reunited with loretta-louise. being reunited with the sun. reunited with my KILLER warm weather wardrobe. reunited with paul simon's graceland album. reunited with my bike, mr. maroon five. ready ready ready. not ready for being drug tested (wtf?!) in april, but thats a horse of an entirely different color, now isn't it?

i believe this post to be satiated now. til next time!
