Just kidding. Kind of. It’s been far far too long since I last blogged. Excuses? Many. Good ones? A few. But instead of mourning lost time, let’s move on to something more exciting, like- Birthday Week! Yes, I like many of my female counterparts, have decided that one day is just not enough to celebrate our awesomeness, and thus birthday week was born. Steve is a good sport about it and puts up with my half joking/half absolutely serious whims and birthday demands.


   Me: “Let’s go in the hot tub!”

    Steve: “Eh”

    Me: “Umm.. it ‘s birthday week”

    Steve: “Let’s do it!”


     Steve: “are you really going to eat jelly beans for dinner”

     Me: “babe, birthday week”

So yeah, I’ve been eating a lot of candy and having a lot of fun this week!  On my actual birthday Steve and some friends suprised me at one of my favorite brunch spots in Santa Monica, Sonoma wine garden. To be honest I don’t even love the food that much- they don’t have very many gluten free options. BUT the mimosas you guys, these things are vats! Most bottomless mimosa places give you teeny glasses and you have to literally tackle the waitress for a refill. At SWG you have to turn down refills at some point or request a wheel chair. My kinda place! And the atmosphere is equally amazing. Great sunny rooftop just two blocks off the ocean. So we had an amazing and boozy brunch to start the day.

After brunching it up Steve took me to trapeze school!!! It’s been on my summer list and I was so excited that he took the initiative to plan it and surprise me. Maybe a little too much of a surprise based on the mimosas I had. Was a little worried it would affect my coordination. Turns out having a few was probably a great way to loosen up- I wasn’t scared to leap off the ledge and jump right into it. Literally :). I’ll share more on trapeze  when I do my summer list review.

Right now I’m going to go grab a glass of wine. It is birthday week.

love and candy,
