My life lately - Birthday Edition!

Brought this old find out of the wardrobe for Katie's birthday party.

Had a few drinks with the birthday girl. :)

Ate the best meal I've had in a really, really long time.

Woke up next to this once or twice. :P

Hung out in the sun with this silly sausage!

Isn't she adorable?! :D

Tried out a water marbling technique on my nails for my birthday.

Turned 23 and spent most of that morning feeling sick and miserable.

Then B came home and gave me my birthday present. :D
(This was part one. Part two is somewhere between here and Canada.)

Later that evening I went over to my families house and walked into my first ever surprise party! It was pretty hilarious because when I walked in and saw that all the lights were off I called out "what kind of weirdos just sit around in the dark?!" and then the next thing I knew my brother jumped out and screamed "Surprise!" haha..

When they turned on the lights I was welcomed by this awesome pile of presents! I sooo wasn't expecting anything like this.. I mean, it's not like it was an important birthday milestone for me or anything.. but then again, I guess that's what made the surprise party more of a surprise! :)

Mum had cooked me a scrumptious dinner (which I forgot to photograph), and the twins aka Anita and Jaana baked me this yummy teddy bear birthday cake and cupcakes. :D

After dinner I started opening presents. I opened my Mums presents first and received an awesome cake tin for baking numbers and letters, some new tea towels, an apron, a double oven glove, love heart silicone cupcake moulds, my kitchen rules cookbook, a miniature dachshund fridge magnet, rimmel glam eyes mascara, sudoku book and air freshener thingys. WOAH!

Next I opened my brothers gift and he gave me this adorable Peter Rabbit plush, stickers and miniature dachshund notepad set. :)

Last but not least I opened the twins present. They gave me the coolest cupcake decorating kit, cheese knife thing (because I've been known for my crappy cheese cutting skills), inspirational teacher quote key ring, and....

this $100 text book voucher for the bookshop at Uni!!! :O

Long story short.. I had a pretty amazing birthday! :)
