My 2? Birthday!

My birthday weekend (last weekend) started off amazingly! Friday night my bf & I went to the Tumbleweed's CD release party over at the Fox & Goose. Right when they were getting ready to start their set, Kyle (the 'weeds drummer) surprised me by asking the audience to sing "Happy Birthday" to me! I must have turned five shades of red because Kyle said I looked embarrassed!

The next day I had Indie Sac Valentine to vend. I made some fun trades that morning and made some good sales...semi-freezing by the front door (but I survived!). My party followed later that night! (Pictures of that fun night will come later because all those pics were taken with my 35mm camera.) I was really excited to have time to hang with my best friends and family that night. Happily, I escaped "the Bday spanking" ritual...It got dicey there for a few minutes of me running around the house like a crazy person trying to get away from those with the devious agenda! And the night ended with a dip in the jacuzzi! Aaaahhh!

Sadly, I had to work on Sunday! Luckily it passed quickly!

On the actual day, I got majorly spoiled by my loved ones! Chris woke me up in the morning and surprised me with a brand spanking new digital camera! It's really shiny with 14.7 mega pixels and HD video! :-D
After that fun wake up, my sister took my bf & I out to the Fox & Goose for breakfast!

I happily sipped my mimosa and nibbled on my Olallieberry scone with Devonshire cream!
After breakfast, I got to pick up the latest issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 comic at the not so thrilling downtown comic book shop (I should have waited to go to Empire Comics...It's a faaaar cheerier atmosphere there! - I know better for next time! But I digress!) And then the hunt began to get my hair cut!  I've been in desperate need for a cut for a looong time! After some searching Chris got in contact with our friend Gabby; and she agreed to "do" my hair! So we headed over to Chakras in Roseville!

I agreed to the full cut & style (Thank you Angel!) and I have to admit, it turned out really cute! 

We then headed over to my niece's school to pick her up after her long day of classes. She was so happy to see me there, she had to introduce me to her new best friend & everything!
After that we headed back to the south area to my parent's house. We took advantage of the opportunity to snap a few more pictures in their backyard.

And then we headed over to Macaroni Grill for dinner!  They sang Happy Birthday to me and I got to munch on some yummy chocolate cake and sorbet for dessert!

All in all, it was a fantastic birthday! Many many THANKS to all my friends and family for making it so special!!!!
