Babes + Bevvies: 3 bloggers, 4 friends, and a Flower on mah Head

Hey Ma, check me out. I've got a flower on my head!
I am puffy from all my birthday celebrations. Plenty of food and libations peppered my 5-day weekend. That's right, I started celebrating on Friday, and it continued until Tuesday early evening. What a blast. A BIG hearty thank you for all your sweet birthday wishes, and bloggy kisses for my dear friends who made my birthday feel special. I love you, and YOU know who you are.

Some can be seen below. All taken over the course of my lovely weekend, so that might explain the show of beverages and restaurant settings. 

Lindsay. Chicago Fire.
Ari. Crepeville in Curtis Park.
Ann. The Annimal + Stanimal Deck. You can see more over at Ann's blog here.
Kelly. Ella's.
These beautiful faces may look familiar to you. They've all appeared more than once here at the Citizen. Well, they all play a starring role in my life. Lovely, lovely people and they each add so much! 


Also adding joy, in a much more superficial way is MY iPHONE! Dude! All these rad pictures came from it, and I love how easy it is to pull out the gadget and snap, snap, snap away. How fun it's been to capture and share moments that have been culled from my adventures.

AND adding even more joy to the dog-pile are all of you: my merry band of readers. I have been blessed with 324 followers on GFC, and just discovered that there are over 150 subscribers on Bloglovin'.  Icing on the cake = 650+ followers via Twitter . Wowzahs! 

So THANK YOU! I am floored, humbled and honored to have made the virtual acquaintance with so many of you. THANK-YOU!

Kisses for all my friends!
Tower Cafe goddess. Tower Cafe.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday Bella. I will be in Vegas this weekend (finally on the west coast!) but I believe it's a little too far fro sac. :/

Congrats on the iPhone! Maybe now we can face time. Thank you for being such a great blog friend. I was about to actually delete everything and quit because unlike so many of you, no one wants to be my friend. For the exception of a few... :/ but you all keep me in the game. Thank you for always being so kind and sweet to me.

xoxo,

OK, next birthday, I need to celebrate it with YOU! I've never met anyone able to stretch a bday into a four-day event, but it sounds good! The puffies are worth it (and I sure know how that feels with all those sodium-bomb martinis I drink).

Congrats on the iPhone...yeah, I don't even bother with a point-and-shoot anymore...the folllower and fans you've amassed. It's cause you're cool, you're sassy, and above all, you're BELLA!
