Nearly one month later, I want to thank you all so much for your lovely birthday messages. It made my day. :)
I had a wonderful birthday! At midnight, Chris surprised me with chocolates and two CD's I wanted for some time now...the new Cut Off Your Hands and The Outsiders cds.
(He bought me my much coveted crochet dress from Forever New months ago.)
Later that night, Chris surprised me with dinner at our favourite Indian restaurant and he invited our good group of friends. I had no idea they were going to be there.
this is what I wore...
trench coat- op shop'd at Paperbag Princess
I got so many amazing presents! And I wasn't even expecting any of this.
A style book by the costume designer of Mad Men! a beautiful brooch, American Mac n' Cheese, Body Shop musk, a flowery coinpurse, lip gloss, hair accessories, nail polish, etc.
At the end of the night, I posed with New Zealand's once eligible bachelor now recently taken off the market, hunky Dan Carter. HAHAHA :)
I had such a great night catching up with everyone. I'm trying not to get too sentimental since this is a big birthday for me gratefully spent with some great friends...and another birthday spent a long way from home.
As a big birthday present to myself, we planned a trip to the South Island and explored Dunedin, the Otago countryside and Queenstown. It was surreal. I can't wait to share some photos with you.
