I’m not sure if you guys knew this or not but my birthday was recent, which you may have known by the fact that I posted my 24th birthday haul this past Sunday, or the fact that I talked about it on social media. I really enjoy my birthday usually and am completely fine with talking about it, I did try to keep the birthday posts to a minimum though, so that’s why this is going to be my last birthday post, plus I’m not really sure what else I would blog about.
I had two days off of work, the Wednesday before my birthday and my actual birthday. I had the Wednesday off because I had a wedding dress fitting and we had a couple of other things to do, so we just took the whole day off, which was nice. As you can see in the photo to the left, I wore a really cute outfit on Wednesday that I was super happy with. This was taken in the Old Navy dressing room, which was one of the stops that day as I had some super cash to spend, which I did of course. I am a shopaholic after all. But we started our day out by going to Old Navy, they were closed so we ended up going to the suit place, but they asked us to come back later so we hopped over and had lunch. Then we went and dealt with my dress, came back and got my fiance a suit, went and did some shopping, had a birthday dinner on Wednesday and came home. So, the day before my birthday was pretty fun. But, now on to the actual day.
I just had to share this photo, I had the day off so that meant that I had plenty of time to play with makeup, so since I had time and it was with my birthday. So, since I had all the time and it was my birthday I decided to play with glitter, something I’ve never done before but something I am super happy I played with because now I’m not so scared of it, however, glitter does get everywhere after you apply glitter, which I guess is to be expected.
After getting ready our first stop for the morning was to go bowling, which was super fun and I will insert a couple of photos from right below this.
We played three games in total, I lost the first one by a little bit, the second game we both were really terrible at and that photo above is from the third game, which is the only one I won and probably the best I’ve ever done at bowling.
After we went bowling, we headed over to get my fiance a button up shirt for the wedding, he has just recently started getting what he’s going to wear together and so far we have a shirt, suit and shoes. I think the only two things left are suspenders and a tie, so nothing too serious I think. We then drove around the outlets for a few minutes, I looked around and didn’t really see anywhere that I just had to go, so we left the outlets.
Lunch was our next stop, we debated for a few minutes and ended up at Olive Garden, not my all-time favorite place but neither of us have had pasta in probably three weeks at least, so I think we were both itching to eat some pasta, hence how we ended up here. I left very full of pasta, salad, and breadsticks and I’m super happy about that.
The next stop was a complete surprise to me and something that I’ve always wanted to do, we went to a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Shop, I love ice cream, I love Ben & Jerry’s and I always wanted to go to an actual shop. That might be a little weird but I also don’t really care, I was excited and it was a really great expirence. I got salted caramel blondie in a waffle cone, the ice cream was fantastic and the waffle cone was so good. We were going to sit on the river and eat our ice cream but it started to rain, so instead we sat in the parking lot and watched a bridge opening from afar, which was kind of interesting to see.
After ice cream we headed home, popping into our work for just a few minutes so we could look at the floral arrangement our florist sent as a trial for the wedding centerpieces. A little too much yellow for us, but very pretty, as you will see in the photo below.
The next stop was just hanging out in our apartment, taking a trip up to the in-laws new house, then coming back to their current home where we opened gifts, had chick fil a and cheesecake.
So, overall a really good birthday, one of the best ones I’ve ever had I think. I had lots of fun, hung out with some of my favorite people and ate a ton of food, which to me equals a pretty damn good day. Plus I wasn’t at work and got to play with glitter, something I don’t do nearly enough.
What was your favorite birthday?
