My family took me out to dinner to celebrate my birthday.

Dinner was delicious, and everyone got nicely buzzed.

Dessert was Sprinkles cupcakes.

I special requested Sprinkles. I needed to know what all the hoopla was about. I’ve heard about these magical little morsels for years. I used to laugh and point at people waiting in a hundred person line around the block all for a damn cupcake.

Well now I understand.

Sprinkles, you slay me with your buttercream and moist cakey goodness. Seriously. The best frosting I have ever tasted. I want to live in a vat of that frosting.
Before I go, I also wanted to share what I wore to dinner, because I love this dress! It’s Thakoon for Target. I snagged it when they brought back the GO International Designer Collective awhile back.

Any other Sprinkles lovers out there? And, yes, I gained five pounds after my weekend of fun. It was worth it.

    I'm determined to try sprinkles sometime soon.

    I love that dress! I heard of Thakoon when he made a brief appearance in the documentary The September Issue. I need to look up that Target line!

    I love Sprinkles. When I was in CA in the fall my friend and I did a "cupcake crawl" and tried a bunch of places around LA. It was so fun. I blogged about it! Oh and Happy Birthday!

    On my next trek to CA I will be trying a Sprinkles cupcake. I want to know what the hoopla is all about, too.
    And of course I love the dress!

    I've never had it, but I'm dying for some. Frosting is a serious weakness for me. Happy 30th! You're looking fabulous as always.

    Happy Happy again, hon. You look so pretty and I'm loving the dress/boots. It's already in the 90s here, so no more boot weather for me (sadface). The sprinkles cuppies look divine – I've never tried the real deal, only the mix. Super jeal you got a whole box!!
