You Say It's Your Birthday (It's My Birthday Too)

I love birthdays.  I generally make it a rule to take the day off from work, and spend the day dragging husband all around San Francisco doing fun things.  This year, my birthday falls on a Wednesday.  It was kind of an awkward time to take off of work (and I have to take some time off for a surgery meatball needs, but that is another post), so I decided that we would celebrate all week instead, starting last weekend, and continuing through this weekend.  Here are some highlights from last weekend.

Beautiful springtime blooms to brighten up birthday week.  This is a favorite color combo of mine.


Mandarin crepes for breakfast.  If only I could eat crepes for breakfast every morning, forever and ever.


A shared birthday party, given by my mother-in-law.  Four of us (on my husband's side) share a birthday week, so we usually celebrate together.


My eight year old niece did the decorating.  The kid has style.


More to come on the birthday front after this weekend.  Now I am off to find my "free drink on my birthday" card from Starbucks.  It's the little things in life.

P.S.  If you enjoy these pics (and who wouldn't jump up and down about some bloggers random picture of breakfast crepes), you can follow me on Instagram.  I added a link on the top right-hand side of this page (@iluvpugz).

I had a birthday a few weeks back but decided to ignore it.
I love your tulips, I always look at tulips in the flower shop but they are so expensive :( that i just get other flowers. One day I will get myself tulips.

Awww yay Happy Birthday Erin!!
My secret to nice hair (and mines only sorta nice) is..and everyone tells you and its hard to grasp....but it works....dont wash it. Yep thats it. I only wash my hair twice a week and deep condition one other day. I have thin hair with equals oily...took awhile but my hair adjusted and made my hair SO much more healthier. When I do wash I just air dry after, then use heat from curling iron or straightener to style. Good luck babe!
