a swell birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, and as birthdays go, it was pretty cool. I slept late, took the dog for a walk, got some work done, did a fun photo shoot with an adorable baby girl, went out with Matt for a swanky dinner, then came home, put on jammies, and started watching Battlestar Galactica. Not bad, right?

I got lots of well-wishing from family and friends. That's always the best part. I'm pretty lucky that-a-way.

Of course, I snapped a couple pics of some neat-o stuff I got...

My awesome mom-in-law, Susie got me this cute piece of glass made by Patricia Krupo. Blueberry pancakes are always an art form!!!

Mary brought me over these gorgeous flowers. How sweet is that? I LOVE the colors!

I got an original Owen Walker painting...signed by the artist himself!

Matt took me to Craft, a restaurant owned by Tom Colicchio (one of the judges on Top Chef). If you love food, you have GOT to go there. It's definitely a special-occasion only place for our budget, but also worth every penny. I was in heaven over the flavors and presentation. I wish I had a better pic, but I can't do the food visual justice with the leftovers. Just go, you'll see what I mean.

Now I have to get back to work...and plucking gray hairs! Sigh.
