birthday weekend

i said no more instagram pictures, but I was telling a fib.
i actually brought my camera and took so many pictures...
then realized I didn't have a card in my camera.  {bang head against hard surface}
birthday weekend was so good.
it was pretty much all of my favorites wrapped into one fun weekend.
really good weather too.  i'm a happy girl.
...
thursday night.
went to pacific rim in sarasota.
sushi. so good. 
...
friday night.
sign of the mermaid.
which is in this little turquoise restaurant with pink shutters on anna maria island.
home of the best key lime ever.
i wore a little black dress by blaque label

Saturday... the birthday. 
started off with blueberry pancakes and homemade whipped creme.  thank you huzband.
 little girl lola

lunch at skinny's.
a delicious hamburger.
bike ride throughout AMI.
map windows.
shock top on the city pier
dinner at my parents.
which was assorted cheeses, avocado/tom/moz concoction, my fave salad, lobster lasagna.
then we went to the park at night which was lit up with illuminaries throughout.  
it was beautiful.

oh, and over here we're getting ready for christmas.
 presents are wrapped.
stockings are hung.
comfie jammies are being worn at night.
...
come on christmas!

  41. What a wonderful birthday weekend it looks like you had! :) Love those Boston Terrier jammies. :)

    Oh! I love seeing photos of you and Lola. (Or just Lola! haha) My Boston Terrier Sammy had to get put down the day after my birthday in October; he was 10 and he's been a part of my family since I was 5. I miss him more than I can describe. Seeing your precious puppy photos really brings back a bazillion wonderful memories and it makes me so happy for you and JB to have your own sweet dog. :) ♥
