birthday fun

Last Friday was my 36th birthday and I had the most wonderful day. I took the day off of work and did a large number of my favorite things:

1) Elliott and I went to the beach. And not just any beach but Crane's beach in Ipswitch, MA. It was a bit overcast and not quite as warm as I was hoping for but it was so nice to lay on the beach reading while hearing the ocean waves rolling in and taking small cat naps.

2) We split a lobster roll and fried clams at Woodmans in Essex.

3) We hit the Crate and Barrel outlet store and got a rug and a bookcase for our apartment.

4) We somehow managed to stop by Wild and Wooly in Lexington and visit the annual sale area. I may have gotten some birthday yarn...

5) We had Ethiopian food with fabulous fun people: blogless Alicia, Tomoko and her husband Jude. A delicious time was had by all.

6) We all had an afterparty involving chocolate ganache cake and more than one kind of ice cream. Again, a delicious time was had by all.

7) There were many sweet presents including:

glass earrings

vintage glass bead earrings made by cat bishop from Elliott.
Check out her etsy store!

And many other gifts, but I didn't want to show you all how spoiled I got this year!
I'm off to St. Louis for the weekend to celebrate the grand opening of a project I've been working on for many years and to celebrate my wedding anniversary. See you all soon!
