wine, lilies, and drag queens

Now that I have finally managed to upload my pictures I can give you all the proper recap of my birthday....more like my birthday week. what? doesn't everyone do a birthday week? Shoot...I would do a birthday month if I could get away with it! :)

First up: Flowers! I got a gorgeous set of stargazer lilies from Matty, and a cute multicolored set of roses and lilies from Rachel and Sara.


Don't they just make you smile?? I love flowers, especially when I get them at work. Makes me feel very special! And they made my office smell fantastic. After work Sara, Nicolas, Chris, Brandy and I went out to dinner at this cute Italian place on Coronado. It was so yummy! We enjoyed some great food and fabulous wine. Lots of wine. Followed by a donut hole cake (thanks Sara!):

super creative and very yummy!

On Saturday a bunch of us girls got together for a birthday dinner and drag show at Lips! I had never been there before and figured my birthday was not complete without a drag show. It was really fun and I was so happy to be able to share the experience with some wonderful ladies!

And to complete the birthday week celebrations we took a trip to Temecula to do a little wine tasting. Birthday Wine!! And yes, I told many wineries it was my birthday in hopes of free tastings :). It worked about half the time. It was a gorgeous day out....perfect for wine.

Mmmm wine. We stopped at 5 wineries, enjoyed a picnic lunch at one of them, and stayed until closing time. Yep, they had to kick us out. And yes, I drank a lot. Gotta get my moneys worth right? It was a really fun day and fabulous birthday. Of course I wish Matt could have been a part of it, but we can celebrate both our birthdays when he gets back home.

wine. lilies. drag queens. damn that's a good birthday.

Thank you to everyone that shared in my special week!! Love you all!
