i like big gifts and i cannot lie...

besides feelin' the birthday love, the next best thing is gifts, right? ;) i was spoiled, and who doesn't like that once in a while?
 parental gifts, while chloe looks on lovingly
 the ring on my middle finger. all diamonds, baby. just kidding! that would be nice. it's from
and this bracelet by elle (as in the magazine. who new they made jewelry?!). all their jewelry comes with a little ruby on it somewhere, which happens to be my birthstone. so my mom thought that was pretty great. but, i have freakishly small wrists and it slipped right off :( i'll have to find something else. it's so insanely hard for my to find bangles that fit, that sometimes i just buy hoop earrings!
gift from the bf. poor guy, i gave NO ideas. i had none. such a sucky gf.
 i see where this is going..
 a new lens! i actually had an idea that's what he got me when he said something the night before. call it girls intuition because what he said gave nothing away!
perfect card-boy taking a picture of the posing girl.
 i made my own cake hehe i offered. my mom felt a little weird about it, but i needed something to do during the day.

 finally! i had to stare all day at that cake!

and, that's plenty of pictures of moi. only 364 days until the next one!
(and 157 days until christmas. just sayin')

haha i always make my own cake. otherwise it's that crappy store bought stuff from sobey's and just ew.

also, on twitter yesterday you were saying something about essie taking like 3 coats? it depends on the color bc i have "turquoise and caicos" which takes like 4 coats and fifth avenue" which takes only one. i think it's the lighter the color the more it takes but it does stay on for a reeally long time so i think it's worth the 8 bucks.
oy that was long, sorry!

Um, is that a rainbow chip/funfetti cake? I am slightly obsessed with that cake and I will have a small rainbow chip cake just for myself at my wedding, haha.
