Why do the weekends always go by so quickly?  This is kind of my birthday weekend (since my birthday is tomorrow) but due to a number of factors I'm celebrating with my friends next Saturday night and with my family on Sunday.  So this whole week will be my birthday week of fun!  Ha!

Yesterday I started out my day with a relaxing massage.  I love massages and wish I could afford them all the time - but I can't so I always enjoy them when I can get them.  I actually had a gift certificate from Christmas which was even better.  After my massage I decided to treat myself to a manicure.  I got a dark purple thinking it will be my last dark manicure for a while b/c next will likely be a more springy color!

Last night I celebrated my good friend Emily's 30th birthday at her surprise party.  While she did know that some birthday suprises woudl be happening I think she was pretty shocked when she arrived to the bar for her party.  It was a lot of fun and it was great to see Emily so happy.  She definately deserved a great celebration in her honor.

Today I had a relaxing morning catching up on reading blogs and reading Something Blue (just I'm obessed - it is SO good)!  I think Lucy liked having me around.  Have I mentioned that this dog is SO spoiled?  Or maybe I am just a sucker?  She consistently goes into the kitchen and sits by the counter where the treats are and looks at me until I give her one!  AND. . . when she is in her dog bed she shivers until I cover her up with a blanket.  Too funny!  Oh and since I've discovered I'm newly "allergic" to dogs I have to pet her then go and wash my hands.  Not sure what is going on but when I pet dogs I quickly have a reaction (itchy eyes, sneezing, hives).  It is very strange.  I love dogs too much to ever stay away so I'll deal with the symptoms!

My friend Cara is unable to join me next Saturday night for my birthday get together so she took me out to lunch today.  It has been WAY too long since we had hung out so it was nice to catch up.  She is a fellow social worker so we always have plenty of work and non-work stuff to chat about.  Thanks Cara for treating me to a birthday lunch!!

After lunch I took a nap ( I LOVE naps) and then set out to make myself a very special birthday treat to bring to work tomorrow.  I made a peanut butter cup cheesecake and it looks delicious.  Hope it taste good too but I won't find out until tomorrow.  I will post the recipe later this week.

I hate Sunday nights b/c I know I know the weekend is about over and I need to start another work week tomorrow.  This week is a busy week filled with birthday get togethers so it should be a lot of fun!  Oh and I enjoy getting mail very much! :)

How was your weekend?
