Birthday recap.

I had an amazing birthday weekend. My friend threw me a fabulous cocktail party on Saturday night, I had a relaxing Sunday, and then I took Monday off for my actual birthday and had a long lunch that turned into cupcakes that then turned into more cocktails. See that cupcake below? It’s a cinnamon chai cupcake with sticky caramel and pecans. Yup. Be jealous.

Plus I got some awesome gifts, like all new bathroom linens and Kate Spade’s Twirl perfume from my family, a chevron bag that has my name written all over it, and an adorable print of stacked suitcases from a friend’s etsy shop. I’m still playing around with hanging up my new print in different spots in the apartment, I can’t make a choice because I want one in every room.

The present that takes the cake is my new Dwell Studio Draper bedding from my boyfriend, I’ve been talking about that set for months and am SO excited to wash them tonight so I can get them on my bed and take some pictures to share!

Thanks to everyone for all of the sweet comments here and on Twitter, it was a spectacular birthday!

    Well it sounds like you had a wonderful day. I’m in love with that cupcake, it sounds messy and delicious. As some who is currently drooling over all things stripes your bedding is taking the cake. I can’t wait to see the pictures!

    Good gifts, good gifts! I don’t know which I like better. I think I would throw the bag on my arm, get under the covers and stare at my new Etsy artwork. Yeah, that’s what I’d do.

    I thought I’d find the recipe for this super tasty looking muffin here. Aww, man. I bet it was amazing. Hope your day was a good one. But don’t stop there. Make it your birthday week! Enjoy.
