I turned 35 five minutes ago -- 11 am, apparently. Woo hoo! Another year. This year has been fantastic, and I have every hope that being 35 will be smashing, too. My wonderful best friend threw a pre-35 party for me last night at her new place. It was Jim and I, Jim's mom and my parents, and we were all given party hats and annointed with Miso Pretty glitter face roll-on upon arrival, so we literally sparkled all night long. Alexandra served "wave after wave" of appetizers, followed by these unbelievably scrumptious treats from Saint Cupcake:
Here is an example of Alexandra's marvelous gift-wrapping skills (& take note of the huge yellow "diamond" on my finger -- this is a "matching friendship ring" from Alexandra so we can be just like Oprah & Gayle and Courtney Cox & Jennifer Aniston - BFF!! hahaha!):
It was all superbly thoughtful and sweet and delicious, and we even gave Alexandra's dolls the leftover cupcakes.
And just because Jim took all the pictures and wasn't in any of them:
On a completely different, more grave note, I am so relieved to read that Darlene's son Mark has come through his second surgery well and looks to be on the road to recovery. Blessings to their family, and all best wishes.
