Things I Love Thursdays: Birthday Pressies!

This birthday was particularly fabulous. Not only did I receive some seriously awesome gifts, but I also got tons of Facebook messages, emails, phone calls, and cards from all of my amazing friends. Maybe it's because it was a REAL birthday this year? It's kind of nice that when people realize, hey, it's Leap Day, they also realize, hey, it's Mara's birthday! Yay!

Anyway, I wanted to share a few of my fave gifts from yesterday. First up, my truly gorgeous Kate Spade purse from John.

The Bow Bridge Monette shoulder bag (and she's all mine!)
Second, a delicious Queen Street cookie from my MIL that is so cute it deserves to be featured.

Get in mah belly! Oh wait, it already did...
Third, a delicious dinner at Rasika. If you haven't been - go! It's the best Indian food I've ever had.

Added bonus - LNRB and MB!
And finally, these weren't technically a gift for me, but I think you'll agree that these George Washington sunglasses my MIL got at Mt. Vernon are kind of like a gift to the whole world. A gift that just keeps on giving, if you will.

Oh My Elton John
Seriously, does it get any better? Thanks to everyone for making my day so special. Only four more years until we get to do it all again!

I love Indian food too.

Mara Rae said...

Don't you love the pouty lip? He made that face every time he put the glasses on. Such a ham!

Mara Rae said...

Thanks Carrie! And since I'm a triplet, you now know three people born on leap day! :)

Thanks Trisha! Rasika is upscale, sort of nouveau Indian food. Really unique. Their crispy spinach appetizer is to die for!
The kid is pretty unique too :)
