My Birthday Weekend...

My birthday was on Friday, I turned 25, I am currently awaiting my quarter life crisis.

30th May 2010 2

In the mean time, my birthday weekend was lovely (my newly made up rule is that you can claim the entire weekend as your birthday if it falls on Friday or Saturday, feel free to steal this rule and use at will).

It was filled with food, food, cake and food. I got pancakes before work, work then 'surprised' me with cake (and although I already knew about the surprise, I played along). I then came home to dinner and a massive 4 layered black forest cake made lovingly from scratch by David. There was cheese and crackers and olives and all sorts of tasty treats and I was given my very own Jasmine plant from David. I love jasmine, its so pretty, and smells so good and I think I sounded like a broken record when we first arrived in Sydney talking about how much I wanted my very own jasmine plant. Well, I guess it worked :) I can't wait for it to bloom in spring with its pretty white flowers and gorgeous scent.

Cute outfit photo out take - I think Monty was trying to jump up onto me at this point.

And last but not least, it was topped off with a lovely High Tea today with fellow bloggers Louise and Ellen.

So far, 25 hasn't been too bad...

  1. A birthday weekend is a great idea! I did that myself this year which was also my 25th - quarter life crisis never happened, though! think that might be a bit of a myth :)

  4. Wowza, that dress is amazing! Where did you get it?!

    Also, how funny that you went to The Victoria Room (5mins walk away from my place, btw) the same night I hung out with some other Sydney bloggers and discussed also having a high tea meet-up!

    --xo.

  12. What lovely little plants. I used to work in a green house full of hanging jasmine baskets. I even rescued one that no one wanted. It was variegated, and people took that to mean sickly, but I thought it was beautiful so I gave it to my mother-in-law.
    Your dress is darling and those shoes! I adore those shoes! I love the multiple buckles.

  19. You can just declare a birthday week if you need to! We do and it's the best tradition ever - having seven whole days of celebration plus a big midnight birthday (like new years, but for birthdays) is very fun!
