Feeling the Love

Day Thirteen

Turtle Neck- Rickis
Scarf- Roberto Cavalli (Present from Brianna)
Pants- Self Made
Boots- Aldo

I'm going to admit that these pants are making me quite mad!!!  I made them from scratch (as in drafted the pattern and sewed them) with full intentions of making the perfect fitting 70's inspired dress pants.  I fit the pants on myself so many times to get the fit perfect, and made so many adjustments to the pattern.  I finally was satisfied with how they turned out...and now I look at these pictures and it looks like I'm wearing pajama pants!!

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!!  I had such an amazing day.  The plan was that I was going to meet my friend Megan at the library for lunch....turns out she had a bit of a surprize party planned for me!!

How amazing is the cake my friends had made for me!?!  It was inspired by this outfit of mine!!  How cool is that?

Above is a picture of Megan and I....she's my favourite party planner!!  Below is a picture of all us girls.  I feel so lucky to have (finally) made such great friends in my new town!

Brody took me out for dinner, and then we were just relaxing at home when Megan, her hubby and her son showed up at the door...saying they were just popping by for a "visit", a few minutes later the doorbell rang, it was Brodys Uncle, Aunt and two cousins...once again a few minutes passed the doorbell rang again this time it was Brodys other Uncle and Aunt.  I had two surprize parties in one day!!
Thanks Brody!!

(yes I have changed into my lazy clothes by now)

And two amazing birthday cakes!!  This one was made by Brodys (twelve year old) cousin.  She did such an amazing job!!

Thank you to everyone who made me feel special yesterday!!

Those pants look great and even if you don't love them at least you have a perfect pattern for future versions.
