IT'S MY PARTY AND I'LL POST A MILLION PICS IF I WANT TO

11-18-09 1

Hold on to your seats.  Picture heavy post ahead!

I'm another year older and another year insane ... um, I mean confident.  I set up my tripod in a field next to a bike path this morning and for the first time ever, had complete disregard for all the early morning passerby and danced around like a fool for the camera.  It was pretty fun actually!

Did you notice I'm not wearing my boots today?  I decided the perfect birthday outfit would be classic, cinched and playful with perhaps a hint of French inspiration.

Speaking of inspiration, The Sartorialist's book is AMAZING!!!  The photos speak for themselves, but his words are making my heart dance.  He has such an incredible outlook on personal style and his stories are so touching.  You must get this book immediately!

In addition to my new book, I got a new laptop bag and socks.  Not exciting socks, either.  Running socks.  I know.  I'm lame.  Oh!  And I got some funds to put towards those shoes I've been eying!

Now I'm off to eat some greasy bar food (so much for my healthy week), play some darts and pool and possibly belt out some crazy karaoke.

Man, I LOVE my birthday!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes!  Hope you've enjoyed my photos!
