Yesterday I turned 31

 
 I was SO happy when I seen the cake Mr. Coco ordered for me. It was a Dairy Queen Oreo cookie blizzard ice cream cake. Decorated with four Hello Kitty rings (Since there was no kids at my Birthday I get all of them and don't have to share.) The big kitty with the bear is a bottle for bubbles!! Complete with a wand that come out of HK's head.
 
The Mr. usually asks me what I want for my Birthday. This is what I chose.....
 
 
 A Vintage Faux Fur Leopard print coat. I chose this because I have been looking for one for about 2 years and whenever I do come across them in a thrift store they are usually not my size. They are either too big,  too small,  too long,  or too short.
 
 
 This one is just perfect & now my search is over. (But watch now that I have one I will find one that fits me perfectly sometime soon.) That always happens!
 
 
 My Brother got me this vintage compact mirror from a Antique store in a little town.
(I adore the dainty little rosebuds)
 
 
 Sorry for the leopard overload *hahah*
My Dog bought this for me. Well at least that's what the box said.
 
 
 Here is something I bought for myself. Doesn't everyone buy something for themselves for their birthday? I know I always use it as an excuse!
 
 
I went out for a Chinese Buffet yesterday to celebrate. This picture was above our table. I wish I could have took it off the wall and brought it home. I also got cold hard cash for my B day which makes me Happy because,  if all goes as planned on Saturday I am going to go on a little road trip to a town a couple hours away. The town has a REALLY cool antique store and a antique furniture store (The place I bought my Vanity table from last year.) Also there is a good amount of thrift shops and who doesn't like thrifting in a different town?
I have already been day dreaming about the stuff I could come across. *haha*

*Cake Love*
 
P.s. Thank you Facebook bloggie friends for the Birthday wishes.
*Smile*

  1. A very happy birthday, Loo! What is the perfect gift for Mrs Coco? Why that would be a faux fur, of course! Especially a leopard print one. And coming a close second - a beautiful tapestry bag! You are a woman after my own heart, I would LOVE to be have those two gorgeous items (even if you did buy one yourself!)
    Cute compact and hoodie too. Btw, did you save me any cake?
    Hope you find treasure on your weekend shopping trip. xxxx

  20. You are just too cute! I had one of those coats back in the day when I lived in San Francisco--it's too hot to have one down here in the Deep South, unfortunately. I've been married long enough to where I've asked my husband not to buy me anything--I do it myself and then show him what "he" bought for me. He always gives me the perfect gift that way! Happy belated birthday to you, Miz Coco.

  26. Happy Birthday, you look so young for 31. I had a 21st birthday party in the pub for my 31st because no-one gave me a 21st when I was 21. The other patrons never said a word, they must have thought I had had a hard life lol. If I were your size I would steal that coat right from you lol.
