Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I celebrate my 31st birthday. I'm officially "in my 30's" instead of just 30. I spent the day in my pj's and didn't even shower until 7 pm. Take that, maturity!!! Then we went to Whole Foods for dinner. Yum! Sandwichs and wine- very good birthday dinner. I even got a slice of Tiramisu for dessert.

But the real celebration was last night. Brian took me to Top of the Mark in SF. I've been wanting to go here for drinks since we moved here. It's at the top of the Mark Hopkins Hotel on Nob Hill. Amazing views... Wanna see?????

Yeah- I forgot my camera. D'oh! Quite silly of me. Then we walked down the hill 1 block to go to Rue Lepic. Seriously, if you are in SF, go here for dinner. It's a sleeper hit! The food is amazing and there's 0 pretension. It may actually be my favorite SF restaurant. And I've been lucky enough to eat at lots of fabulous places. The place is tiny and they weren't ready for us when we showed up. So they gave us each a glass of wine while we waited outside. It was one of those perfect SF nights where a cool breeze is blowing but it's still warm enough to be outside comfortably. For dinner I recommend the 5 course meal for $44. Not at all pricey for SF standards. And BEYOND delicious! They even sent out dessert wine for my birthday. The place is fantastic. I love it! Go now!!!!!

It was a perfect night. Even though I had a runny nose so bad all day that I looked like Rudolph. Seriously, if I was skinnier, you'd think I had a serious cocaine problem. Today, nothing. Luckily Everything Balm seems to have solved the red nose issue.

Knitting Wolf sent me a nice package for my birthday! An M&M magnet and super cute stitch markers.

Aren't they adorable!!! How'd she know these are my favorite cookies??? Thanks so much!

At 31, I realize I'm not above peer pressure. The girls at Stitch and Bitch were toting the virtues of the Twilight series.

Twilight Books

So I went to Target a couple of days ago and picked up the first two books. I'm holding off on starting them though. Need to finish a couple of books before these.

Hope you all had a great day! I know I did!!!

Happy (seriously belated) birthday :) I'm trying to catch up on some blogs. You know why I am behind? I've been reading the Twilight saga! I know I mentioned it on my blog, but I don't think I really wanted anyone to know how obsessed I've become. Damn, they are very addictive...

Happy (now belated) birthday. Sorry I missed out on this post. Finally getting to catch up on your blog - and once I am, I'm planning on staying on top of your posts!! (Good plan, I think!)

Great birthday loot.

Have you gotten to read those books yet? I'm not sure if I'd be into them. Let me know how they are.
