Birthday Weekend!

Friday the 13th (oooOOOooo) was my 25th birthday. I always think of it as extra lucky when my birthday lands on a Friday. Allie flew in from Madison to celebrate with me, which was a special treat. We went out for a sushi dinner at Koi, which was fantastic. It's pricey, but definitely a great pick for a birthday dinner. Allie was the delivery lady of great presents from home, and she'll be here all week!

On Saturday boyfriend arranged for us to enjoy a massage at Pho Siam. This massage was much needed, and at $40 for an hour, it was fantastic. Your muscles have to be ready to be beat up a little bit as they really go all out, but it's totally worth it!

I set out to make birthday treats from my new Martha Stewart cookie book, but plans quickly changed when I realized I’d have to go to the store for a few cookie essentials (and laziness really sets in on a Sunday). Funfetti to the rescue! I whipped up a batch of cookies using a Spring Funfetti cake mix, and between that and my knitting, and a brief Spring cleaning sprint, I am ready for Spring.

(ok, the lighting and the granite countertop aren't really helping out this pic, but you get the idea)

Sock #1 is complete! It is a little loosey goosey, but it gets the job done.

Hmm, I heard these things are supposed to come in pairs…the motivation for sock #2 has been a little low, but it'll get there.
