Last week I turned yet another year older and had a lovely time celebrating. And I thought it was a perfect opportunity to link up with Becky for another Treat Yourself Tuesday!!!
First off the day before was treated to a snow day. I can't complain about that. Working from my couch, in my pj's? THAT is a treat.
I honestly don't expect much as far as birthday's go. I am VERY low maintenance about celebrating my birthday. Call me crazy but I just don't think it is THAT big of a deal. Is this old age?
The day started off with walking up to my desk to some goodies.
Next up I was treated to a sushi lunch and then my absolute FAVORITE a Carvel cake!!! You can try and feed me the most exclusive gourmet cake, but it all comes back to ice cream cake for me.
I then got home and walked in the door with the boy waiting with some lovely flowers before we were off to dinner at a French restaurant I have been dying to try, Aperitif.
Dinner was everything that I wanted and more. I had a delicious vouvray (x2) and then this absolutely phenomenal vegetable risotto with truffle cream topped with grilled shrimp. I was so happy that the dinner lived up to the hype. I can't wait to go back. I was only sad that I was full from lunch and cake at work so didn't have any appetizers or dessert there.
Then for some presents! I got a couple of C. Wonder goodies - a monogram wine stopper (which is a pretty excuse to open a bottle of wine obviously) and dish for my jewelry. Side note still super bummed that they are closed.
And then an enticing offer popped in my inbox for 50% off so I had myself a little field day at Loft. I mean SO CHEAP how could I not? And look at these dresses! They can be worn in winter and transition to warm weather really well. I love love love shirt dresses, they are so darn comfortable.
And then my sister got me this lovely shirt from Peace Love World - seriously I want to live in it, it is so luxurious.
Overall it was a day filled with love and spent with the people that I love the most. Just enough attention was paid to me to be embarrassed (I mean having happy birthday sang to you in the middle of the office = bright red face!). I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and am thankful to have so many caring people in my life! Thank you to everyone for sweet messages all day long!
