it's my birthday today

my birthday always makes me feel a bit like this

however, this weekend was deliciously sweet. the weather was perfection, the company and food were too!

what mustaches are made of. this is by far one of the best desserts i've ever had. thanks for the recommendation leigh!

matilda did a lot of assisted walking.

we cleaned up our beds and planted some cold weather vegetables.

mouth watering. my mama is the master of birthdays.

Did I tell you about Old Navy's yoga pants section? There is a sign over their yoga pants (at least, there used to be) that said: "Our gurus think you're lulu if you'll pay $90 for yoga pants"--hahaha!

I've bought a couple things at lll and they're really great but daaaaaamn. It's very much a "scene" here in SF . . . ALL the richie richies wear them to their yoga studios or to The Daily Method or wherever it is they go for their upperclass exercise. :)

Happy Birthday! Everything looks so delicious!

I hope you'll let us know how that yoga video is. I'd love to find some non-cheesy, but challenging yoga videos.
