Caitie's 26: Part 1.

I'm writing this Tuesday night and literally, I would give anything for it to be Friday. First of all, I am so excited to have a weekend this weekend with no set plans besides lounging and taking care of some housekeeping items. The Boy is getting his wisdom teeth removed so I'll be caretaker for him as well as grab lunch with my first real boyfriend (now longtime pal) who is now married and expecting a baby! I am excited for the simple tasks of the weekend ahead because this week (even 2 days in) is throwing me for a whirlwind of adventure. Truly, being at work this week has felt like being a player on MarioKart... think it's smooth sailing and a then a banana gets thrown in your path. Best part of it is though... you get to show off how well you can drive :)

So basically... I want it to be this upcoming weekend but I'm still swooning over my birthday celebrations last weekend- I guess I just don't want it to be now!

As I did something Thursday, Saturday and Sunday in celebration of my birthday.. I'll take it day by day with 3 little posts instead of one large one.

Today: Thursday.

{The Boy and Me... 8.5.10}

Per the usual, The Boy took me out for a solo date the Thursday before my birthday. He likes to go when it's First Thursday downtown because there's an artwalk, lots of wine, lots of music, lots of people... it makes for a nice after-dinner stroll. Anyway, we had dinner at a new, upbeat eatery called Irving Street Kitchen. We enjoyed each others company while people watching and basking in my birthday :)

After dinner we strolled through town where we ran into our good friend Yuki who was at a PR party on a balcony, so we joined her for a drink before heading home for the night. It was simple, sweet and divine (but I still took a few hundred pics).

{Me, handsome Gay men and beautiful Yuki!}

{The Boy looks like a serial killer here hahahah}

Oh... and did I mention we saw Brian Grant at dinner?

Anyway, my writing on this post is horrible but I'm super tired so I'm going to shove off and leave this C+ post as is. Can't wait to show more this week and best wishes for the best of YOUR week!!!

Happy Wednesday!

{Or as my friend Jordan delightfully calls it- "Friendsday"}

Well happy, happy birthday Caitlin, my wish for you is that all your dreams will come true, and that there will be many more!

Look on the positive side of your bf wisdom teeth being taken out, you will not have to cook, only soft food like ice cream.... and yogurt. But best wishes to him also, it is going to be auch....

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Birthday!!!!! Thanks for the happy visit to my place. After hearing the tragic news about Bumpkin I need lots of happy and this is the place to find some of it!

So glad you liked the bracelets - I totally freaked that I was too unhip to find something for you!

Glad you had a great celebration!

p.s ..about my jackets , in my team is only 2 people so process is very slow and it's also been very hard to start everything , I don't have online shop yet , at the moment I sell jackets local ..but more designs are in the making process so stay tuned : ) and I really hope that in a short time I will have my online little shop as well ..
..thanks for compliments about the jackets , it MEAN A LOT to me : )))
