thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday this weekend, either by blog, facebook, or instagram. i had a super fabulous birthday. birthdays are huge in my family, and chris has really done well over the last 10 years to always make sure i have a great day (or week, or month). he had the whole saturday planned for me, which included a relaxing acupuncture treatment, a delicious ecuadorian brunch, lots and lots of thrift shopping (he mapped out stores that he knew i had never been to) (at one of them, i found this), and a super fun dinner that had lots of vegetarian options, two for one glasses of wine, and totchos.

so yeah, it was a pretty perfect weekend. how was yours?

happy monday!!
xoxo,
megan bird

  14. Ok, now somewhere in my admitted skimming, I missed that it was your birthday. Seems like I knew but, oh well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGAN! Great renditions of the inspiration. I love both of 'yourns' boots! My shirt I have on was inspired actually by Nora and some tops she has modeled ...and I did a bit of a shout out to y'all again on my post.
