My birthday celebration!



Kerrie gave me a 12-hour birthday party last week.



It started out with bagels, fresh fruit, mimosas, and Chanel makeup.

We then ended up in the woods, where we drank champagne and mocked the geese.



















Later that night, we put on our new party dresses and hit the town. (I snuck a black tutu under mine, so I could pretend it was Betsey Johnson...it was really Forever 21).





Somewhere around 3 a.m. we finally got around to the pink champagne cake.



It was fabulous.

Wow this truely does look fabulous. The pink cake and chanel make up sounds perfect. I love your pictures in the woods it looks so fun. I absolutely adore your new dresses both yours and Kerrie's are stunning. I love the print of your dress and it reminds me of a dress I have. The black tutu underneath is genius and adds some more class to the already beautiful dress. I remember the post you did on your Betsy Johnson clothes a while back. So pleased you had such an enjoyable birthday.
