Birthdays are the perfect occasion to catch up with longtime pals -- and if you're Lauren Conrad, that means spending some QT with a fabulous fellow MTV alum.
The "Hills" starlet, who turned 29 this past weekend, enjoyed a belated Big Apple dinner with Laguna Beach bestie Lo Bosworth, plus their girlfriends Jilly Hendrix and LC's wedding planner Cassandra Herschenfeld. Looking very "Sex and the City," ladies!
"@lobosworth and I wishing our two least gangsta friends a happy bday," J -- who frequently accompanied her hometown crew to Les Deux and other Tinseltown hotspots -- captioned the grinning snapshot above. This intimate mini bash certainly trumps previous surprise parties in honor of LC -- like that evening Heidi Montag organized, which featured that awkward Spencer Pratt-led toast. Or that tearful embrace between the former Hillside Villas roomies on that boat...
For a bit of nostalgia, take a look back at Lauren, Lo and Jilly sitting poolside in Vegas dishing about a very popular man about town: Brody Jenner.
