Today is my birthday, so the weekend was filled with all kinds of fun. We threw a party on Saturday night, so all day was spent in the kitchen, busily but happily. You can expect the full party rundown tomorrow! There was also brunch with a friend I've known since kindergarten, some of my favorite bakery treats, sweet cards and gifts from friends and family, a little shopping, four loads of post-party dishes and some time spent with my new Ryan Gosling coloring book. What more could a girl want? All in all, a pretty wonderful, silly, delicious birthday weekend. My 29th year is off to a good start! I'll be quoting Schmidt from New Girl for the rest of the day in celebration.
