Saturday, my actual birthday, was started off with those very anticipated chocolate chip pancakes. Oh, and a princess balloon bouquet and banner. Little ways to my heart.
During breakfast, Brandon let me know that I had an appointment for a facial at my favorite place 45 minutes later. He made sure to point out that he made this appointment for me two weeks before I mentioned it on my birthday lust list here on the blog! Immediately after that, my mom surprised me with an appointment for a mani and pedi. Even Brandon joined me. Lots of little indulgent surprises!
…followed by lunch at Saffron (thanks to Brandon’s mom!). Perfect afternoon!
I was surprised with these pretties when we got home.
…and then my parents arrived! After visiting for a little, we jumped right into the cake & ice cream. Getting those candles lit was truly a group effort. Later, we went to Saturday mass & had dinner at Coast.
As for Sunday… Well, Brandon and I spent the entire day on the couch watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Literally – the. whole. day. – with the slight exception of a little tennis match.
This birthday was a slam dunk. To those of you who commented on the blog or on instagram, thank you for the birthday wishes!
Hope y’all have a great week. I’m hoping to breeze through this one. My mom, MIL, and I are hosting a bridal shower for one of my absolute dearest friends this Saturday. I can’t wait!
