Today was my birthday and although I will be celebrating it with more friends on Friday I still wanted to do something on the day with the hubby, my sister and, of course, the dogs! So we went to my favorite place to eat outdoors in the city (it had to be outdoors because of the dogs!) – The Shake Shack, which I wrote about earlier this year when the snow was still around.
We hung out enjoying the nice weather we’ve been having.
The dogs looked so cute I had to take a picture with them… and I was happy to do it, too, as I don’t have any pictures at all with them, as incredible as that sounds!
It was a lovely Spring evening and we had a lot of fun eating burgers and then Pinkberry where I got my favorite – Pomegranate with chocolate chips. Yum! The dogs also joined in the fun sharing a Poochini from The Shake Shack (plain custard, peanut butter and a dog biscuit!):
Later when we got home I got lovely presents! From my sister I received a beautiful silver bracelet I admired in Peru and that she bought me without telling me and from the sweet hubby a beautiful white gold chain with a diamond and pearl pendant from Mikimoto. I was so surprised and so happy with it! It’s my 30th Birthday so he wanted to give me something extra special, and I can tell you that this is definitely very very special to me. 🙂 I also received a very lovely and very much anticipated package in the mail today, so it feels like a birthday gift… it’s my prize yarn from the Fiberphile Design Contest that I won back in January for Folha Luz! I chose the color Concord and couldn’t be happier with what I received. It’s just perfect!
Overall I would say it’s been a pretty damn good birthday and the real celebration (with friends) doesn’t happen until Friday! Not too shabby all around. The dogs loved being able to take part of my birthday dinner today but they were also very happy to be home… where they crashed out on the daybed as soon as they arrived.
Gotta love it when they’re too tired to get into trouble! 😉
