Que Bella – Eddie Bauer Birthday

I was blessed to celebrate my birthday yesterday with my family yesterday. We had lunch at one of my favorite places in SATX, La Gloria. Husband and I went there last year for my birthday and loved it. They have these great life-sized metal art figures in the front. Perfect picture taking spots. They also just added an outdoor, fully-stocked bar.

My regular…Pollo en Escabeche Sopes

I’m wearing an Eddie Bauer Crinkle Dress in Plaid. I am in my normal size 6. It was nice and casual and cool for the day. I added a Cole Haan purse I received for Christmas and my new Christian Louboutin Brown Espadrilles.

Husband and The Boy shopped at Anthropologie for my presents this year and they did good.

Here’s a teaser for “Super Shoes-day” next week…While shopping at one of the little boutiques in Boerne, a small town nearby, I found these TOMS. They are the Bimini Stitchouts in Yellow. Unfortunately the TOMS site only has two sizes left in the red. I love the yellow and the Top-sider accent. I took a 7 1/2 for three reasons. 1) I really wanted them but this was the smallest size they had left. That immediately told me they were very popular and I would be hard-pressed to find this color in my size elsewhere. 2) They run slightly smaller than my Black Glitters, which are a 7. 3) I really wanted them. I read in some of the reviews that a lot of people are going a half to a full size up in these.

Have a Great Day! I have a busy day and weekend ahead of me preparing for our party tomorrow. See you “Shoes-day”!

Oh…and Feliz cumpleaños to Gigi and Dina!!! Have a wonderful birthday!

    Happy Belated Birthday! 😉

    I read the words "with ants crawling around it," and I got the heebeegeebees (I can't stand ants). Then I saw the photo and actually laughed out loud–OH, those kind of ants.

    Happy Birthday, Audrey! Though belated…my apologies! I have yet to try out La Gloria, but with your recommendation, I think we're heading there soon. You look lovely, and your boys did a great job picking out gifts!
