some very late birthday photos.

I know it's been a while since I've been here. and I never did tell you about my birthday weekend. Is it too late now? I hope not. I won't get into the nitty gritty details of how many drinks I consumed, all the purty things I got and how it was probably one of the best birthday weekends I've had in a looong long time. and I'm a big birthday person. If you know me at all you know I revert to a 12 year old when it comes to my birthday. I can't help it. This year it was champagne and cupcakes (thanks julie!!) and lots of great friends who made me feel totally and utterly loved from Friday morning until Sunday night (ok -I always feel loved). So thanks to everyone who indulged me. It was fantastic. Here are some photos. And none of me wasted falling over myself, I don't do that sort of thing. I bought tons of flowers to put all over my house for the gathering I had on Saturday night, here they are in the back of alison's car. Thanks for driving me around to get champagne and flowers alison!

And here are some a few days after the party- note the bottles that I didn't clean up until this weekend. Eww. and please ignore the food splattered behind the stove. Aren't they all so pretty? Lots of people gave me flowers too- which made me oh so happy.

And here are some of the cupcakes which Julie made for me. She had them spell out Happy Birthday Christina! And she also made me some mini ones. Julie makes cupcakes for Love At First Bite in Berkeley, you should go there and spend loads of money. I didn't get any really good cupcake porn pics as I was a little distracted with people coming over and giving me stuff, but here are a few, aren't they sweet?

And here's one of my very favorite gifts I got this year, Molly made it for me, it's not the best picture of it, but it says today the entire universe revolves around you. Here it is on the ledge where it lives now and then there's a close up.
On Molly's birthday I left work early, we had a nice lunch and drinks and drinks and then we went shopping, I think this was one of my favorite moments of my b-day weekend, we were in H&M and the lines were ridiculous- so Molly convinced me we should just try stuff on in the store, sort of but not really hidden by some racks of clothing. Don't underestimate drunk shopping- I got a great coat and a fantastic dress I wore for my party. Here's molly outside the dressing room. And that's an edited version of my birthday weekend. it made me realize i need flowers around more often.

**I knew I would get in trouble with someone-- that's what happens when you edit things down so as not become the longest post ever. My actual birthday was on Sunday, I woke up late and was told to take a cab to some place in Cole Valley, I think it was Cole Valley. I can't even remember, I know the address I was given was Parnassus and something. I had one of the best breakfasts ever with some of the best friends ever and the rest of the day was spent in the sun drinking and in the car being stupid and than at koda and chip's somehow consuming even more wine and food. It was the perfect end to the perfect weekend. And I'm not just saying that. I was going to post one of the pictures I have from that day, but I look really puffy and hung over and I'm not sure I want you to see me looking like that. So just imagine loads of sun and yummy eggs and bacon and a tiny little french restaurant that made us all feel like we were in Europe. And then stuff your face with indian pizza and you'll know exactly how we all felt at the end of a very long and lovely weekend. Happy Birthday!
