Uh Happy Birthday to Me, Barump Ba Dum Dum Da Dum!


Today was my 31st birthday! My man made me French Toast for brekkie with fresh bread and eggs (yum!), and my baby brought me a birthday card in bed. Then hubby piled Gremel and I in the car to "go have a picnic at the Biltmore." On the way there, we stopped off at one of the best pattern thrifting spots, and I bought some pretty separates patterns. Then we got to Asheville, only we didn't go to the Biltmore, but we went near the Biltmore.

 My husband surprised me with an hour and a half in the spa for a Swedish back massage and a facial! Love that man! I would have never done that for myself being a self-neglecting mommy and all, so it was really fab. Da took baby to an art show, and I got all pampered up.

Then, on the way home, we stopped at another thrifty spot that I kinda love/hate because it has big bins of stuff that you have to dig through, but you pay by the pound ($1.10!). I picked up a couple of books and while scanning over a few of the clothing bins, I found an original Pendleton Wool '49er! It has the pretty little gathers in the back and the neat shoulders. It also has a couple of moth holes, but nothing that'll keep me from wearing it this fall.
So, thank you, Universe, for another lovely year. I think this is going to be my best one yet!

  5. Happy birthday to you! I'm so glad you found the 49er. I always worry about great vintage going through those bins and not being discovered.
