A Bit of Birthday

The best part of my birthday was Jarod planning a  breakfast bike ride to a 'lil-diner' in our neck of the woods.  The owner greeted us outside and let us put our bikes in the back room.  The food was super yummy and the waitresses were on top of topping off our coffee, which were served in some hodge podge mugs - love it.

On the ride home, we stopped at a thrift store and I got these great sparkly votives.  I also totally judged, and bought this book solely on the cover.  

The rest of the day was nice and relaxing.  The festivities came to an end at the Conkle's house with a little birthday celebration with my book club (plus husbands).  Heather baked an AMAZING green velvet cake (! - due to lack of red food coloring and in honor of Scarlet O'Hara's green velvet dress - haha!)  with cream cheese frosting - yum :)  Thanks girls, it was a fun nite!
