Birthday Beachweekend

I am old. Old balls.

I spent a great weekend celebrating the start of my birthday month! Oh wait. You didn’t know? I celebrate my birthday for like an entire MONTH. I love birthdays. People should celebrate each other as much as possible.

I started the weekend by treating myself to losing $5 in the mega millions. One day. One day I will have #richpeopleproblems.

Since Brad had a bachelor party in Vegas, I had a beach weekend with a few girlfriends in Whidbey at Holly’s (I have known her basically my entire life! How cool.) and that was my sunset on the drive which the picture does NOT do justice.

My other AMAZING friend Kelly made cupcakes. WHOA. Not only does she know me too well, but these were hands down Ah-mazing. MO-Freakin-JITIO. With rum and mint and lime and SUGAR. And look how pretty they are!

Then I made a giant thing of limeade/vodka/corona DRANK. We had a fiesta.

Sarah made awesome Guac and homemade chips and Lauren died. Literally. Oh did you know I am a doctor and can diagnose bruised ribs? Well I diagnosed her and now you can call me Dr. K.

Then Lauren blew my mind and MADE me this framed Hunger Games shout out cross stitch. SWOON! I am promptly placing it on my desk at work since my co-workers and I talk about the Hunger Games basically daily. (I am now realizing I never did a post about the movie after my Things I Want post, but the only thing to say is if you haven’t seen it or read it don’t talk to me. Meh.)

Then Kelly who just blew my mind with the mojitio cupcakes gave me this! She knows I like to print or take recipes out of magazines and this is a changeable magnetic recipe holder with cupcake magnets! So cool! SHE MADE IT. My friends are too crafty.

Then I had the Sunday Fried Chicken dinner at Brave Horse Tavern with some buddies and then took Monday off because it was my ACTUAL birthday no one should work.

Brad and I spent the day at my favorite bakery, my favorite park and CANLIS. Yum. Oh and not done yet. Then the next day my co-workers and I had a Costco Hot Dog lunch- $1.64! A dog and a drink! Add a dollar and you can get a CHURRO! Love Costco.

It’s only week one of birthday month. What else can I pack in?! Thoughts?

Antiques and Anacortes

A few weeks ago my friends and I went up to Anacortes for a antique adventure (seriously check out that link because every time I think about ANTIQUES I think of this video, haha!)! I went with Holly, Lauren and Megan (also bloggers! Aqua Elephant, Diary of this Girl, and Elle Hey No you can check out their finds at the links!)

I was able to snag the third Pyrex bowl in a set I have been looking for…now all I need is the small blue one!

And Holly this past weekend saw this for me!

So I am well on my way with the snowflake print collection!

I also scored when I found the most amazing depression glass cake plates-all three tiered!!

So beautiful and I can’t wait to use them for desserts or apps or whatever I can!

I can’t wait to go shopping more with these girls!

Do you have any cool antique shops or cities you go??
