Is it still my birthday?

24 hours seems like a short time for a day when its your birthday. Especially when you are sleeping for 8 hours of it (I'm being optimistic) and working for 9 1/2 (also optimistic). Not that I'm complaining! I had a great time out at dinner with friends. Would you be shocked if I told you I surprised myself with a cupcake cake? :) Well it was from my Mom and Dad (Thanks guys!), but it might have been my idea...

I did take Friday off work to enjoy myself and really didn't get much done other than sleeping in and laundry, but I think beauty sleep is priceless.  My Aunt Cathie and Uncle David passed through Austin Friday night on their road trip back to San Diego, so of course I had to show them the Austin highlights.

Saturday one of my close friends from college (and roommate of 2 years!), Michelle, came to visit me from Houston and we had a fun night out!

Here are a few photos from my birthday dinner for your enjoyment. I guess I forgot to get one of the whole group, however I was very insistent on getting a photo with each person. Thank you everyone for making my birthday so special! :)

Brittney and me- IDK what was so funny?

Would you also be surprised to know that my kitchen gadget collection has grown just a tad? Here are just a few things that had the honor of gracing my collection:
Cupcake Pen

Mini Donut Pan
Anthropologie Flower Measuring Cups
Tovolo Pink Silicon Spoon
