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 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.
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.
