Birthday recap

My 25th (!!!) birthday was this past Saturday. I had a great weekend though I didn't take many photos. Ooops!

Thursday night I had my family celebration at Madeo (with my dad, stepmom, and sister). My mom was in New York meeting up with my other sister whose birthday was Sunday. My stepmom gave me this adorable polkadot laptop sleeve from Kate Spade

Friday I went to birthday lunch at Houstons (now closed :( Both of H's parents met us for lunch which was really nice (as nice as lunch with a toddler can ever be!). They got me Sprinkles cupcakes, flowers and these gorgeous shoes (my dream shoe!):

Friday night my friend M came over for our weekly TV night (usually Thursday but we moved it this week). I love watching my favorite shows after a long work week!

Saturday I went to see Ides of March with my dad. I had seen Farragut North, the play it is based on, when it was in LA (see recap post here). Since you know I love Ryan Gosling, it won't come as a shock that I enjoyed the movie! After the movie we went to lunch at my elementary school festival. It isn't as magical as it used to be but so many happy memories whenever I go back. Then my friend C came over and we went to dinner at Islands. We split a huge plate of cheese fries. YUM! I am having my birthday party this weekend so I decided to do something low key on my actual birthday.

Sunday I slept in really late and then went to lunch at CPK with my dad (and yogurtland after). I ran some errands and relaxed. I met my sister and brother in law for dinner at Rush Street. More delicious food! My sister got me these mugs from Anthropologie

Plus these whale/sailboat glasses (also from Anthro but are not on the website):

And this alphabet stamp set:

My other sister got me this adorable elephant ring (sorry for the blurry photo) and elephant book stamp (both were bought while she was in New York and my mom brought them home)

(stamp says "from the library of")

I still haven't decided what to do for my birthday party this weekend. I don't want to do a Halloween theme and nautical seems odd for October. hmm I better start brainstorming ideas!


  1. Happy Be-lated birthday!! Sorry I missed it. Sounds like you had a fun packed weekend. Love the birthday gifts.

  2. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend with friends and family and got some amazing gifts!! Love those shoes :)

  6. It looks like you had a fantastic birthday weekend! Happy belated birthday, Kate! What about a Hamptons or Martha's Vineyard-themed party?

  7. Great haul; the Chanel flats are amazing! Loving the little book stamp, too. Hope your birthday was fantastic!

  8. Sounds like a pretty amazing birthday!

    I like Tiffany's idea for a party! Especially a Hamptons theme...reminds me of the show we are all watching. Revenge :)

  10. I have those Chanel flats too! I got them in Paris. I love them so much and hope you do too!

  11. Sounds like a fantastic birthday! I think I may need to be a nanny when the boys are in school so I can score some awesome b-day gifts from my employers. In the corporate world all you get is lunch :-)

  12. Oh my goodness, jealous of your gifts! Adore the Chanel flats, they're my dream shoe, too! Glad you had such a wonderful birthday! xo, LP
