A couple weeks ago it was my birthday. Here's my delicious vegan chocolate cake from Back to Eden Bakery Boutique and my lovely outfit.

This dress was made by my friend Ann Hymas and I hesitated posting this photo because I think the dress is so very beautiful with intricate details that the picture just doesn't show- but here it is anyhow. Maybe I'll try another day for a better shot.

When I first saw these shoes I fell in love. They are so fitting for me. They are whimsical art for your feet by the incomparable Vivienne Westwood. Westwood teamed up with Melissa Plastic Dreams shoes and I own a few pairs of there conjoined artful efforts. Thank you to my husband who had these sent to me from New York in time for my birthday last Friday. Love these shoes!

Today is my birthday and I went shopping, playing and eating!

2009's festivities began…
A week and a half ago I celebrated with my inlaws at The Bye and Bye, cake and icecream and playing wii at our house.
Yesterday Ashley took Emily and me to celebrate our birthdays (Emily's is Friday) at Gravy on Mississippi. Those two are too beautiful. They rock.
Today started with yoga and meditation.
Opened a few gifts from Andy and Eliot. Red converse- I love red shoes. And a couple books I wanted.
Opened presents from Todd and Gina- and promptly made a recipe from my new Raw Food Real World book!
Free People- bought a beautiful lacy sweater.
Toy store- for Eliot to hang out and play.
Urban Outfitters- 3 scarves for $4.99 each! And a heart shaped bamboo cutting board. Heart shaped!!
Athropologie- Wish perfume and a white flower for my hair.
Lululemon- bought a tank top.
Blossoming Lotus- takeout.
24 Hour Fitness boot camp. The trainers sang to me!
Went home to hoop and shower.
Olio United- A $10 butterfly dress! Andy had a beer and E played with toys while I shopped.
Blossoming Lotus- dinner.
Sweatpea Bakery- cupcakes for me and E and a drink for Andy!
Food Fight- a big fat avocado!
Nordstrom- Hello Kitty for MAC makeup.

All of the birthday messages on Facebook and Lavendar's amazing post about me, I'm without words. So grateful. Big love to all xoxoxo. Thank you. Love you.

And tomorrow I pick up my Yummy Tummy food!

Birthday plans for Thursday February 12. May have to do some of this on Valentine's Day cause the list is too long!

*Pie – to look at vegan footwear.
*Sephora – to smell perfumes.
*Blossoming Lotus – to eat raw vegan food.
*Yummy Tummy – for more raw vegan food.
*Free People – to try on pretty clothes in their equally pretty dressing rooms.

*boot camp at the gym – cause I like to sweat and it's my birthday.
*Stella McCartney for Adidas – oh, yeah there's no where to buy it in Portland. blech.
*Lululemon – love this store too. Best pants and jackets to work out in even if their design turnover is way too fast for my taste.
*Yoga class – a nice way to start the day. If I don't go to a class I'll at least spend some time when I wake up doing sun salutations and more.
*Laurelhurst Park – for a walk if it's not too cold.
*Sock Dreams – duh!
*Xtabay – because it's fun to look.

DSC01491 Four years ago tonight I was in labor with Eliot in me and on his way out! And yesterday morning we ran our first race together as a family. Nike had a race at their Nike World Headquarters. In this picture you can see Eliot's determined stride as we closed in on the finish line.

This one was taken at his cousin Riley's third birthday party at the Avalon Arcade.

This is Eliot's fake surprised face from the backseat, hamming it up.


And this last one is my Eliot baby. So beautiful! This was probably taken around 9 months old, he's had loads of hair from the start.
Happy Birthday eve, Eliot B.
