my proud moment, aka I AM MASTER (BEATTY)
then, back home to my party, here are my decorations (thanks to em and noel):
AND a bright bouquet of spring flowers my mom brought for me:
AND my cake from rebecca: (okay maybe you're catching on. it wasn't just MY party. it was art's birthday too. thus, smART cake. together we got the royal treatment, so from here on out I'll drop all the obnoxious mine.mine.mines and sticks with OURS)
our homemade button flair, also carefully personalized, presented by the lovelies noel and emily. mine has the words to the last unicorn on the back. art's has a line from jeepster i believe.our delicious pico de gallo, crafted by artie and carried out by noel. a party takes a village.happy as a lark, sporting all my new jewelry, homemade gifts from the girlies. how i love those two!
christy came! (tho she couldn't get ma boyz to show up!)noel charming the pants off the hubs:shorties:our long lost wanderer! kaitlyn's home from london!sometimes you just look around at so much joy and beauty and go, damn!my enthusiastic support team:
after being showered with so much love and appreciation, i really did begin to feel rather like a spoiled and pampered queen. so much so that somehow i absconded back to my bedroom, turned on my fan, snuggled with my cat, and, still wearing all my hoopla, fell promptly asleep hours before anyone else!
thanks all you wondrous folks for helping me celebrate this landmark of my life!
