PHOTO DIARY :: BIRTHDAYPosted: June 13, 2012
I woke up yesterday to tons of emails filled with birthday wishes from my blog and facebook, thank you guys so much again for all the graduation/birthday/anniversary wishes! I got to spend the day with my boyfriend, and he made it an awesome day for me. We giggled a lot, took impromptu naps during the day, cooked together, and indulged ourselves in food! My idea of a perfect day :)
Here are a few photos from my birthday…
The morning started off with him making my favorite breakfast…eggs and chilaquiles with chorizo! After random naps from a food induced coma, we headed over to Pinkberry and Trader Joe’s for some grocery shopping. Trader Joe’s is my top destination for shopping (and it’s only grocery shopping lol) hehe. It even tops Nordstrom lol :)
After Pinkberry, we headed to one of my favorite beauty stores, Planet Beauty! A month ago, I found out I won a random drawing for their I Heart PB fan club and they mailed me a gift card with no value on it, so I went in to check yesterday and it’s a gift card for $200! I never win anything, so I was super excited about all the wonderful beauty products I could splurge on. Unfortunately, I was too overwhelmed and walked out with nothing lol.
Bday candles for the birthday girl :)
We both love food so cooking together comes naturally. For our anniversary dinner, we made toasted sesame ginger salmon with ginger jasmine rice. It was so good, he had seconds! Recipes for both will be up shortly :)
For dessert, birthday cupcakes! I made myself, truffle brownie cupcakes with cookie dough frosting! These are INSANE! Sooooo rich, chocolaty, decadent, moist, and gooey! And the cookie dough frosting, OMG best combination ever! PS, these were organic cupcakes so I didn’t feel completely guilty :)
After years of not having a bday cake and bday candles to blow out, it felt really nice :)
These past few days have been filled with lots of celebrations, and I’m so happy I got to share them with you. Thank you again for reading and stopping by yesterday! You guys are the best! XOXO
ps, Thank you boyfriend for spending my birthday with me. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to spend yesterday with. Thank you for everything, xoxo.
