Birthday Weekend!

About a week ago I celebrated my 27th birthday! Despite the shock of turning 27, I had a pretty amazing weekend!

On my actual birthday my mom took me up to Portland to go shopping for the dat and have lunch with my aunt Syd at Brasserie Montmartre! My favorite lunch spot in portland. Syd gave he her birthday gift which was amazing cookwear from sur la table and basil olive oil from the Lake Oswego Oilery! Then bought me my big gift from my parents (after much debating over what I wanted! too much to pick!) which was a new marc jacobs bag!
Brasserie Montmartre!

A very tiny photo of my new bag... couldn't find a better one!

On our way back from Portland my mom dropped me off in Corvallis to meet up with Matt and we went to the UCLA v. Oregon State Basketball game! Which was so much fun! Then he took me out to dinner at this really yummy sushi restaurant called Aomatsu where they specialized in a dish they playfully call "beaver balls". Which is really tempura mushrooms that have been stuffed with salmon and topped with avocado and sweet soy. Then Matt gave me his gift! Which was a gift certificate for my and a friend to go get facials at a spa in Eugene! Which was so thoughtful! 

Go Bruins!!

yumm... beaver balls! LOL

On our way home we stopped at my favorite bakery in eugene for a slice of orange chocolate cake!

Happy Birthday to me! (pay no attention to the recycling in Matt's apartment)

As if this day wasnt enough! My parents took us out to dinner the next night at my favorite spot in Eugene, Osteria Sfizio. (if you notice I am hitting up all my favorites on my birthday! :) )

On Saturday we went to the UCLA v. Oregon at the new Matthew Knight Arena! That was a BLAST! It was so awesome finally seeing the brand new arena after the years of talking about it and all the construction down on campus. After the game we went to get ready for dinner and had my last and final (#3 if you are counting) birthday dinner with a big group of our friends. It was also my dear friend shanleys birthday and so we were celebrating a dual b day! Love it!!

All in all it was a fabulous birthday!!
