its my party

today is my birthday. a whole 23 years old today. 23 can be boring. if you let it be. but i imagine my birthday going a little something like this.

a beautiful tea party  
to make me feel like a kid again

poppin' champagne with the beatles
as if the mr. needed any more reason to think i'm cool

and of course, balloons 
that's the mr. and i before he was my mr.

i spent this past weekend in asheville, nc with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law here is some of what we did :)

amelia and i ate breakfast, both sat and sun, at city bakery cafe

i had a yummy fresh mint cappuccino and and irish cream cappuccino

for lunch we headed over to tupelo honey cafe
oh my lady
to die for
we waited about an hour for lunch but it was beyond worth it

check out our individual biscuits!

i had a yummy chicken and garden vegetable sandwich on sourdough bread (my fave)

we spent the rest of the day shopping and walking around the city

we also stopped by the chocolate fetish

there aren't any pics of my chocolate 
it didn't last very long!

pretty lanterns hanging in a store front window

vinnies! the perfect meal ending the perfect day!
also no pics of the food, we were starving when it arrived

right before we left, in front of the beautiful fireplace

bday present numero uno

my sweet hubby has a week full of little surprises for me....starting today :) when i came home from work he had a pile of gifts for me to choose from, but of course i couldn't choose. way to much pressure. so, i had him choose one for me. and this, my friends, is what i received:

if you have never heard her music, stop now and look her up. i love literally every song on this album.  she is blessed beyond belief with musical talent.

here is some black and white...

i saw this space today on simply grove. of course i'm a sucker for anything black and white....and the little touch of yellow makes my heart jump.

p.s. my husband just informed me it is my birthday week! little surprises everyday. now that makes my heart jump :)

and oh yeah, pics from this weekend coming soon! be sure to check back!
