first of all: thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes! You are all so sweet! Thanks thanks thanks!
I had a wonderful birthday yesterday and I want to thank David who made my special day really awesome! Thanks Schatzi, I love you and I had such a fun time with you!
I think I should write a little birthday recap and I want to start with the presents. :) I got so many wonderful presents and I feel so spoiled and loved! They really made my day and all I can say is THANK YOU!
So here is a little collage of the presents I got. I am sorry for the bad quality but my iPhone is a little stupid right now and my real camera is broken. Yay.
Also I am still waiting for some mail from Germany to arrive. Boo for the German mail which is surprisingly slow right now.
So here is what I got:
The most awesome piggy bank ever. The cat comes out of the box, grabs the money with her paw and then vanishes again. She is also very polite and says thank you. I have seen this on the internet months ago, showed it to David and told him how much I love it. He remembered it and got it for me for my birthday. He really is the best!
My wonderful friend Lissa from the rain girl send me a surprise package and she spoiled me so much! A little coin purse, a photo album, postcards, a notebook, a beautiful flower pin...I came home last night at 2 am and saw this package and got so excited that I wasn't able to fall asleep. You should all go over to her blog and say hi because she is such a wonderful person, the greatest photographer and writer and her drawings are so beautiful!
Thanks so much, Lissa! <3
My sweet friend Martha also spoiled me so much! That was another reason I could not sleep last night. When I came back I saw that she sent me a gift card for such a wonderful store that sells all kinds of vegan and cruelty free goodies and I am spending my Sunday browsing through that store. Martha, thank you soo sooo much! You are wonderful! <3 Please go over and say hi, her blog Quick Cheap & Pretty is awesome...full of animal stories, product reviews and things about her life. I love the fact that she loves animals as much as I do.
I love getting mail so I am very excited about all the lovely birthday cards I got! Please German and American mail, hurry up and deliver the rest of them!
David also got me a new fancy red dress for my iPad which is awesome because my other one if falling apart!
I got some make up and beauty products. I love make up palettes, it is so much fun to play with them! David knows that obviously! :) The hand cream from Lush is heavenly and smells like chocolate and oranges. It is called "Charity Pot" and by buying a pot you can support a charity of your choice. I chose the "Animal Alliance of Canada". There are cute guinea pigs on the package. :) One of the palettes I got has a heart shaped mirror. Love it!
David knows that I am a book worm so he got me some of the books from my wishlist. One is called "Veganomicon" and contains some mouth-watering recipes. The other one is called "The perfectly imperfect home". Can't wait to read them!
I also got some jewelry. Two necklaces, one with an arrow and one with a plane (thanks for the inspiration, Celeste!), a ring and a bracelet with zebras, elephants and other wild animals on it.
We went to a thrift store yesterday and I found this wonderful vintage purse. And David got it for me! Yay!
Thanks again to all of you for making my day so special! I can't thank you enough, I feel so loved! Thank you thank you thank you!
And David, I love you so much!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!
