The last picture on the right is my birthday surprise from Ed! They are sooo gorgeous, a picture really doesn't do them justice.
So for my birthday day I asked to go shopping and to the Rose Garden. We woke up at about 3 and headed over the hill. I remember last time my birthday was on a Sunday it was kinda lame since everything closes early but luckily it's light late so we hit the mall first. We had lunch and then went to the shoe section of Nordstrom! I could spot the Jeffrey Campbell table immediately. I've admired them online but never bought any since I dont know if I'm a 10 or 11 in them and Zappos doesnt sell em so no easy returns.
It was so nice to sit there at my leisure with Ed and I had a little shoe angel that brought me whatever sizes I needed. I kid you not the entire time I was trying on shoes I heard at least 10 negative comments about the JCs, San Jose isn't very experimental in their fashion I guess. Anywho I bought what we are calling my "space shoes" and these in the black and nude. They're both super comfortable and easy to walk in. Ed was amazing, he never goes into stores with me so it was quite a treat. He said he dealt with it by "receding inside himself", what trooper ;)
Then I went into *cue angelic music* Sephora! for the first time.
That mascara in the middle is awesome!! and I'm really picky, so are the glitter eyeliners :D
Then I hit Sanrio, I got a few things and stocked Acacia up for school *sigh* her first backpack. Then we went to the Rose Garden. I'll share gratuitous photos of roses in the next few days. I need to re-download photoshop before I can go through them all, since my laptop died. I've been using picnik, it's fun but I like to have multiple photos open at once.
Tomorrow I'll show you what my sister and brother in law made me, it's so SO awesome<3
