I must start by again thanking everyone who posted birthday wishes on the birthday thread, I was so touched by all the sweet comments. Thank you all so much <3

First up, the day! My husband and I started with a delicious breakfast at Chandler's Crabhouse, where I had a yummy crab cake benedict and coffee cake (#2, 3). After that, we met my sis at the ballpark where we spent the rest of the day and evening (#4). I was hoping one of us would catch a BP or foul ball, neither of which happened, though my sister found a mystery ball (scuffed and unstamped!) tucked underneath her seat so we're counting it Unfortunately the game was a blowout in the wrong direction, but it was '70s throwback night (#5) and we still had plenty of fun. Any day I can spend at the ballpark is a Good Day.

Second up, the clothes! I wore a reprisal of Thursday's ballgame outfit but swapped the cream heels out for nude booties (the better to walk all day in), along with '70s-inspired sunnies and sequins. For breakfast, I substituted a sheer silk blouse for the hoodie (#1). I had a teal tank on underneath so it wasn't a big deal to pop off the blouse and pull on the hoodie at the ballpark. I should've also grabbed my furry vest to really go for the 70s night thing!

Third up, sartorial gifts! I'd asked for a pretty purse, so I knew that one was coming -- unfortunately I'm not sure if I'll be keeping it, as the scale feels too large on me (#6). Still debating; I do wish it was 60% the size. But the big surprise was what I found inside the purse. Remember how I broke my camera on Thursday? Well what I didn't know is that my very sweet husband promptly ordered a new one on Friday and had it overnighted. I had no idea! I'm counting this as a sartorial gift because, well, the camera's primary use is to take my outfit photos every morning ^^ Sissy's gift will show up later, I'll share it when it does.

All in all I had a lovely day! Birthday weekend continues: Today (Sunday) we're relaxing at home, and tomorrow (Monday) we're planning to go out on the dirt bikes. Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend! Comments, critiques, thoughts and questions welcome.
