Birthday #36

This is my first blog post using instagram photos so congratulate me! This year I turned 36 and I had a great birthday.  If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I am none too pleased about aging.  That's putting it lightly, I am fighting it every step of the way.  So this year for my birthday in an effort not to celebrate it, I had planned a trip to San Fransisco.  Well, Spencer got sick and my trip got cancelled.  Rather than pout about how my birthday is no fun, I decided to have Spencer book me a night at my favorite Portland Hotel, The Nines.  It was amazing.  I had planned on going alone, but Holly said she would meet me for dinner and shop with me for a couple of hours.  Then my shopping buddies, Rachael and Wendy came down for the rest of the night and we had a late night cake/ding dongs/ and a nail painting party. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday.  
 
 
 Just a few supplies for the trip

My room

 My birthday gift to myself.
 I got my first pair of boots.
 Reading magazines with Holly
 Eating cake and pudding with Wendy in the club lounge.
 And the pinnacle moment, getting my ears pierced. 
 Rachael and I picking out my studs.
 

 DONE!

 Rachael brought sparkling cider for breakfast.

 And celebrating with my Dad on Sunday 11/11, because we share our birthday.





This is Warren with his cousin and best friend Jake. I hope my next 4 years of birthdays are just as fun as this, that way turning 40 won't be so brutal.

Looks like you had a fabulous birthday!! WOW! I knew you shared your birthday with me, but I'd forgotten that you also share it with your dad. How fun is that?!? Glad you had such a great time.
