birthday week has arrived!

My birthday was Tuesday, so Steve made me a lovely dinner and bought a cake from Cake Love, my favorite DC bakery.




Bacon wrapped tenderloin, bacon wrapped scallops and grilled asparagus with lemon. Oh, and wine, of course. That may seem like a lot of bacon, but on one's birthday, we don't pay attention to such minor details ;)




Strawberries inside the cake! Nothing better.





I'll be celebrating for the rest of the week. Tonight I am taking a Valentine making class at Paper Source followed by dinner with two friends, and then Saturday night I will have dinner with a few more friends at a place in Arlington. Sounds good to me.
Hopefully the corgi will arrive sometime this week too ;)
Do you celebrate birthday week too?

Happy Birthday! I try my best to extend my birthday for at least a week, and my kids all love to have their birthday party a few days before or after their actual birthday-and-family-party so they can have a birthday week, too!

Happy Birthday! I think everything should be wrapped in bacon on birthdays! Oh and that cake...

I love the papersource classes, my fav is their gift wrapping one in November/December. Take pics and show us what you make!
