birthday treats

o me o my! what a lovely little birthday i had, thanks to my lovely family. buttercream frosting and brown paper packages, blt's with avocados and a couple hours of blissful napping. o yes, and some presents too!

this is my new red shift dress from Anthropologie which i got with my gift certificates from christmas. it came the very next morning after my birthday and so did the gorgeous glass earrings you see hanging near the collar which were a birthday present (thank you xty!!!!). they come from the shop of little brown bird who sells exquisite jewelry on etsy. here's a better look:

i also received another etsy surprise, some handmade soap from "mom #2." thank you thank you! It's chocolate espresso soap from Kreated by Karina and it makes me terribly hungry...
