Photo an Hour: My Birthday

My birthday was yesterday, and even though it was Friday and I had to work I thought it would be a good day to jump on the photo an hour band wagon.

6:30 am. Wake up. Make self presentable.

9:30 am. It's work, I'll be there the rest of the day, but here's what I wore. My favorite sweater dress, rust colored tights and boots.

10:30 am. Still working. A co-worker brought in fruit for my birthday breakfast, there's my empty bowl.
10:30 am. Well I'm still working. Here isn't empty bowl from my birthday breakfast fruit from Gail.

11:30 am. This is a boring photo a day. Here's my cube.

5:30 pm. I had to wrap up working so I missed my 4:30 pm photo. Here I am at Starbucks, waiting to meet Dave and the dj we're considering hiring for our wedding.

6:30 pm. Just seated at Cafe Metro for birthday dinner. They specialize in organic and vegetarian dishes but have tasty chicken and seafood dishes too. Everyone wins!

Bonus photo. Veggiesaurus birthday dinner! Ginger soy veggies with tofu and brown rice. Dave had cornish hen.

7:30 pm. Ohana. You can draw on the table at this restaurant. This is me and Dave, who is clearly much more serious than I am, and our greyhound Odie, bunny Lillie, and Flopper who is actually a stuffed animal Dave got me for Valentine's Day a few years ago, but we give him a personality like he was a real dog.

8:30 pm. Home again having birthday cheesecake from Dave.
Birthday cake!

After this, I watched Tudors, crocheted, then went to bed! It was a long day, so taking photos failed after this. I think the next photo an hour will come on a day that doesn't start at 6:00 am! Plus an hourly alarm may be useful.
