What a Lovely Birthday & Giveaways Winners Announced!!!!!!

It was a birthday filled with....


 Oliver, my yorkie, was the party planner, he got all dressed
 up in his party dudes, was definitely in his party mode
 when I woke up on Saturday!

Good ole Ollie was responsible for getting the party going, 
he invited all my friends over for bubbly so we all 
 partied like rock stars!!!!

He had the perfect cake!

He even arranged a day filled with friends and family, lunch, mani/ped's, balloons, gifts...and more partying....

.....Thanks to Oliver, the morning after was a little like this...

Just kidding, but it did make for a funny story, right?  
My birthday was pretty benign.  I started the day with a migraine (not because of champagne)
but by midmorning was really to rally.  We went to brunch at my favorite spot, where I had shrimp and artichoke crepes with a lemon béchamel sauce. (to die for) and a bloodie.  
Then off to the spa, shopping and various other treats!  Later in the evening we went to dinner with good friends.  All in all it was a perfect birthday.  

Enough about me & my just want to know if you won don't you???
