KatherineBee Meets the iPhone

I thought 26 was going to be a downer of a birthday, but I actually had a great time. Mr. Bee's mom and grandma came down this weekend and took me out for some yummy lobster tacos (and tequila) and gave me an amazing gift I've been craving forever...a vacuum cleaner! But not just any vacuum cleaner - it actually tells you when your carpet is clean. No matter how much I've vacuumed I can't get it to turn green, but I'm determined!

My parents made me stay up till 12 the night before my birthday so I could open my presents via Skype with them. I got an iPhone which I've been scared as heck to get, but absolutely love so far. I've been playing with all of the functions and on my recent mall trip I tested the camera. I haven't actually figured out how to take photos without also staring at the phone, but I'm working at it!

Fav Lilly dress of all time.

Birthday dress from Mr. Bee!

Anthropologie doggie dress - not loving it.

Other Anthropologie dress I thought I liked on sale - not a winner.

On my actual birthday I worked and then head home to prepare for my birthday date with Mr. Bee at our favorite sushi place in Hillcrest. Boy was I surprised when we were there for a bit and all of my friends showed up!! He is such a sneaky one and I love it!! We had some amazing sushi and some sake, and the waiter brought us 2 extra bottles of sake, which Mr. Bee made me finish. I am a total lightweight these days, and was not pulling off the sober act very well.

Me and the girls!

Just part of the sake. Ouch.

Came home and cuddled and it was the end to a perfect birthday weekend, until I woke up this morning with a wrinkle. 26 is old enough for Botox, right? I asked my boss for a raise this morning so I can wage some serious warfare on my face. I don't think it went over well. Does anyone have any amazing skincare tips? I can't be an old hag already!!

Oh, and my fabulous friend Christina got me the Anthropologie skirt I've been wanting forever, which is amazing because when I went by the other day it was out of stock!! And y fbetter yet, it has pockets! 10 more points! It goes great with the I Love Michael Jackson pins that I got from my friend Kim. I swear my friends know me better than I know myself. 


  1. I LOVE that Lily Peacock dress. I looks great on you! I tried it on and just doesn't work...Happy Birthday.

  2. Glad you had a great birthday...those Lilly dresses are ADORABLE!

  3. I actually returned the peacock dress (white one)- I think it fit a bit awkwardly. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  4. you should invest in ALL of these dresses

  5. Happy Happy Birthday! 26 is the best! Love the iphone, and beautiful dresses!

  6. Happy Belated Birthday Beautiful! :)

    LOVE your new hair, new phone and new age.


  7. Hmmmm id say 26 is a grand time to start botoxing!!! lol do NOT go overboard though... for instance Paula Dean is a total fake on her cookbook covers. Its hilarious. You however, are not a fake so you should NOT go overboard.
