Happy Birthday to Me!

In honor of my birthday, I had lunch and some tasty cupcakes with Anne-Marie: From the left, we have Cardamon Chai (delicious), Hummingbird (to be eaten soon), and Mint Chocolate (Anne-Marie). They were tasty. We spent some time knitting with our cupcakes (new project! Will get it's own post soon), and we went on a bit of a yarn crawl (to be honest, I've been crawling since Thursday, due to the Weaving Works my birthday Mother's Day sale, but I didn't really buy that much). It was a fun day, thank you Anne-Marie!
Dave had to work today, but yesterday we visited the Seattle Art Museum, which honestly was nicer than I expected. Because I lived in Chicago for several years, I have gotten a bit snobby about art museums. The Art Institute has such a great collection that I'm really spoiled. But, there is a some cool stuff at the SAM, so I'm glad we went. We also had a nice dinner at our favorite greek restaurant. Tonight we went out for margaritas and Mexican at El Camino - if this post is at all coherent it is in spite of two fairly strong margaritas! So, I had a lovely birthday weekend, and I promise to talk about some knitting soon!

Happy birthday! Sounds like a great weekend of celebrations. I know what you mean about the Art Institute -- it's such a Chicago treasure, especially the collection of Impressionist works. Plus I love the lions out front.

Happy belated, birthday buddy! Hope you had a good one!

I did not fail to mention the cupcake source - they came from Trophy Cupcakes in Wallingford Center, as the link suggested :)
