Birthday Lace


 dress - Kersh (from Black and Bold), shoes - Aldo, clutch - Banana Republic

My birthday was last Tuesday and D.'s was at the end of September so on Saturday night we went out with friends to The Common downtown to celebrate another year of being alive, together : ). We were running late and there wasn't enough time to take proper outfit photos  before we left so D. quickly snapped some pics in the bar before it filled up.  Sorry they're so dark! Below are a few photos from our little partay:

Clockwise from top left: my drink of choice for the night: Bombay gin and cranberry juice (so good! Try it if you're over 18), yummy, and I mean yummy truffle popcorn (I may or may not have eaten a whole bowl myself), my good friends Danna and Kristin, and the gorgeous Janis from Dress Me Dearly with her handsome fella. My friend and fellow blogger Caroline stopped by as well but I forgot to get a picture with her. (Sorry Caroline!)

Tequila shots. 'Nuff said.

We had a great night, minus the unfortunate accident of a jaywalker getting hit by a car right outside the bar. He was okay thank goodness but still taken away in an ambulance. I was lucky it wasn't me because I jay-walked as well, about 20 minutes before that. In high heels. That would have been a disaster.

Unfortunately I don't have a very good picture of D. and I from that night - either he's not looking into the camera or I have a stink eye, very rarely does someone capture a nice photo of the two of us, sigh - but here's one from my actual birthday when we went out for Mexican food:


 My nephew came too:


He loves posing like this! I was so happy to see him (and his chubby cheeks) on my actual birthday. 

I hope you all had a great weekend! Why they have to go by so fast I do not know. But look on the bright side: only 5 more days until the next one!
