Let’s just get it out there, I LOVE MY BIRTHDAY.

Okay, I said it.  I don’t necessarily need presents, but I do need people.  I love celebrating with whoever wants to be with me.

This year is was my daughter Meredith and her boyfriend Kenji, then later, her roommate Allyson and her boyfriend Chapman.  It was a great day!

We started off here! In a couple posts back, I made a recipe from the cookbook of the owner of this establishment.

This is one of Meredith’s favorite finds in Vancouver and I have to agree.


I come to find out that the owner also shares by birthday. I would not have know that if Meredith had kept me from talking to her!

So, I had cake for breakfast!

It was fabulous, even though it was only a white cake.  But really, do you need more for breakfast?

Such a very pretty bakery

We came back here on Saturday as it is the only day that she makes her infamous cinnamon buns!

Not you typical ones, but peach, maple…awesomeness

From there, we went to look at some houses that were a bit out of our budget.  Okay, that’s an understatement!

These house were 1.2 to 2 million dollars.  I have not pictures because you could see them through gates.

This is what you see behind their houses though, on their, probably very elite balconies.

The next day, Meredith had planned a surprise for me and clearly she is my daughter and knows me well.

This is where we landed for an afternoon and her roommate joined us.  So nice of her to take the time to celebrate with me.
