Birthday Weekend Report

It may have been ugly but, it hardly made it 24 hours it was so delish. Babe made it home Thursday night in time for a little birthday soirée which left a good sized dent in his cake. After a 2am annihilation by the in house sorority with the munchies we were lucky to salvage two slices for one last caloric hurrah the next day...

Now, Babe had forbidden me to buy him any gifts but, that is just plain crazy talk. I disobeyed with this très summery Ledbury shirt...

Which he politely debuted, like a good appreciative husband, for his annual birthday dinner at the Grove...

And, a T. Anthony duffel which I HAD to get cuz it was on sale. Gotta spend money to save money...

It was a wonderful weekend celebration which made it the perfect time to waltz out in a new Lilly frock. Now, who knows how to sell a purchase???

Kindness of Babe for graciously receiving my ugly cake and my verboten gifts. God forbid I had, in any way, shape or form, supported those no gift shenanigans so close to my looming birthday...XXOO

  1. What a great birthday! And the cake has character - I like it!

    Also loved your last few posts. I'm just now catching up in the blog world, so please pardon my lack of comments.

    Hope you're having a good one!
    XoXo!

  2. The cake actually looks adorable with all the candles! What a lovely weekend... I adore your dress.... the PX90 (is that what it's called --or is that the model of my old Volvo?) and all your running is really paying off!

  14. I like the gingham shirt in red. You have good taste, madam. A lady friend and salesperson in Press talked me out of one in red. Women are better than men at choosing colors. Perhaps I will try again after acquiring some sun this summer.
