Closet Expansion : B Day Surprise!


Top Onze; necklace Forever 21; jeans Gap; booties DSW (Naturalizer).

My mom always cooks for me on my birthday, which makes me very happy! But it also means I miss out on a nice dinner out so this year (the big 3-oh argh!), hubby decided to take me out prematurely. He had me guessing til the end, but I was surprised by a table full of friends! (You are the best, Hubby, even if you won't wait in line at La Senza!)

Anyway he took me to the most wonderful pintxo place (basque tapas) appropriately called Pintxo. We had the chef's choice selection of pintxos paired with a flight of wines (there were two selections). I would call it Canadian-Basque fusion, there were two game courses (elk and venison), an Alaskan cod course (my favourite of the evening, and yes I know Alaska is not in Canada) and a salmon course and they seemed to have an emphasis on using ingredients with known origins and some of the wines were organic. The service was attentive and the staff was friendly and approachable.

I had such a great evening and hubby then surprised me at home with an early Bday present, the first item I can check off my wish list!


I also got this little lovely I'm really enjoying right now! Thanks friends!


The girlfriends got the most perfect gift for a shopoholic, a gift card, can't wait!
