.Balloons & A Birthday Week.

As most of you know, last thursday was my Birthday. And in these parts you don't get to celebrate just one day, you get yourself a certified Birthday Week. Yes, people. A Week.
And I Haven't even told you all about it!!! 
It was such a lovely week. Filled with all my favorite people
And boy-oh-boy, I got soooo spoiled this year. Like I must have saved some drowning children kind of spoiled. 
It started out with a lovely shopping & dinner date with one of my friends, Miss Fiona, the day before my actual birthday. We sipped wine and munched on some grub, and had just a lovely night filled with great conversation. We also checked off a couple things on her wedding To-Do list, which probably pleases me as much as it pleases her {I have a thing about weddings and a checklist}.
Then my actual day of birth rolled around, and it started off a little troublesome. And when I say troublesome, I actually mean it was outright awful. My poor Bella, was sick as can be. And It was pretty bad people {I'll save you the descriptive words}. So I took her to the vet thinking the most terrible things {because I am a worry-wort, and because she means the world to me}.
Can you imagine how awful it was to think that something terrible was going to happen to your sweet innocent baby? Especially on your birthday? After this, I can't imagine motherhood is going too be easy!
The old girl just got herself a case of Beaver Fever! She was going to LIVE! The happiness I felt I cannot describe.
So we got her cleaned up, filled her med's, and it was an instant relief. To her + myself.
How could you NOT fall madly in love with this face? How?
Then we headed out to dinner to a new restaurant we'd been killing to try. Niche. It only has 36 seats in it {yes, it's teeny tiny} and it was perfect. The right balance of coziness, hipster, and warm.
Niche, Via Vue Weekly. 
Myself, Husband, Poppa, Sister, Poppa's Girlfriend, and Sister's Boyfriend {Joyce & Mikael, respectively} all plopped our tushes down at a table and had one of the funnest nights out. Good wine {actually great wine!}, delicious food, and laughter all night. In my books, that's a Perfect Evening.
My 2 Favorite Men! My Father and Husband!
My Sister, her boyfriend Mikael, and Joyce.
And because I'm a huge food addict, I have to share what we had.
To start, we had the Tomato & Bocconcini Salad, The Goat Cheese Spread, and the Prawn Special {x2}.
Delicious! Delicious! Delicious!
Then Peter had the Smoked Tuna Salad. And he Highly recommends it.
And I devoured the weekly special, Snapper in a wine sauce.
