It Was a Really Good One...

This year, I truly enjoyed my birthday. It was super-deluxe and very me.

Jzboy took the weekend off and we spent it doing the things that I love to do. No, not camping! Not hiking big gorges...or any of that boy-stuff. Not even organizing the "clutter" as I am want to do. We ended up having lunch at Cafe Gratitude my fave vegan restaurant, hit my regular fabric shop and got provisions at the all time most excellent market that exists. Jzboy seemed to like it - a lot, even. But even if he didn't, he was a rockstar at hanging with me.

On the actual "day", Jzboy told me that I needed to be ready by 10:30 - with no further details. He later dropped me off at the local, stellar swank spot for a full-on massage and facial. It was absolutely divine. I felt like a happy, fresh, squeeky-clean person once they released me! Jzboy then picked me up in a freshly washed and tuned up car (which was my not-so-secret b-day wish)! Wooooot! Holla!! Now, that is my man. I love that guy!

We hung out and had burgers at our favorite place in the East Bay, then tripped around the local streets picking up some goodies for the evening celebration. Here is the best part:


How cute is that? Way better than I could have cooked up! Pey-Pey is just the most curious and sweetest baby boy that we could have hoped to bring into the fold! Oh yeah, and the cake was tasty and cute, too!

There were some presents....


But! the greatest gift was for me to be with my bestest peeps. It was a very good birthday, indeed!

Happy birthday! I have been to Berkeley Bowl with Teresa before. It's a great market. Sounds like you had a perfect day. My husband did the same sort of stuff with me on my birthday. I loved hanging out together like that.

It sounds like you had a super-awesome birthday my friend. Love the picture of Pey-Pey and your cake. The fabric store and restaurant sounded like a wonderful way to spend your day. please tell jzboy we said "hi". I am so excited that you guys are getting closer and closer to your baby girl. Take care and happy birthday from your friends on the East coast. :)
