Birthday Wrap Up

I always joked about how horrible it would be to be pregnant on my birthday. Or during the holidays. To not savor a fabulous glass of wine? To not cheers with a cocktail in hand (yes, I realize I sound like a boozer. I promise I'm not) I was pregnant for both and it actually wasn't as bad as I imagined. I survived both! In going through my pictures I realized the common theme this year was food. Oh my did I have a ton of great food to ring in my 31st year.

I was in Dallas for Blissdom on my actual birthday. At midnight I was serenaded by a great group of ladies as we wrapped up the night. The next morning my roommate Sarah had left me this sweet note:

I then met up with my Dallas friends for brunch.

Just one of the plates I had.

Then I got to spend some quality time with Virginia. We shopped and I totally splurged at H&M.

We also got pampered.

We then met John for dinner. It just happened that he was also in Dallas for a work training. Dinner was amazing!

Virginia got me these cupcakes and I may or may not have eaten 1 or 2 on the drive home...

When I arrived home this gift was on my counter from my mother in law. Not actually made of real food (it was resin and therefore more creepy), but still food related.

Of course when I got back to work we had to go for lunch. This was quite phallic.

Tres Leches even if my version is better.

That had kind of wrapped up the birthday celebrations. The next weekend was Easter and most people were out of town. Plus we had a whole gender reveal going on.

This past Saturday though a group of us were making dinner plans that turned into an impromptu birthday dinner for me. We ended up at Maggianos since it had an 8 o'clock reservation for 6 people on a Saturday night. Our server talked us into the Family Style menu which basically meant that we got an unlimited supply of food that we could also still box up and take home. DEAL.

We deemed the night, Eating for Two. (Excuse the bad phone pics)

Thank you all for celebrating my birthday with me and Frijole this year!

  1. Looks like a great celebration! Isn't it the best when you can make it last? Next year you'll have a little guy to celebrate with!
