It's official guys....I am in the last year of my twenties!!! As my 28th year came to a close on Sunday, I realized that I once again did not complete my list for the year BUT I crossed a ton of things off this time! With a total of 28 things on my 28 List
, I only left 12 behind and a few of them are rolling over onto the 29 List.
Sunday was such a wonderful day! I actually started celebrating my birthday Wednesday evening when I got out of work and then just kept on celebrating through Monday evening...it was awesome! Monday night I sat down and starting working on my list for this year and it's almost done! Until then, here are a few snip its from my happy happy birthday!
I kicked my birthday celebration off on Wednesday and met up with Justin for dinner! We celebrated new jobs, Toph & I's engagement and my birthday! It was so great to see him, catch up, and ask him to be my bridesman in the wedding!!!!
I left work on Saturday & spoiled myself with a manicure. When I got there, my friend Tricia was there with cupcakes! She had picked up a few cupcakes from this great bakery called Sweet Creations by Gloria. We enjoyed said cupcakes while I was getting my nails done and it was a perfect kick off to birthday weekend!
I came home to a sparkling clean apartment, dinner and wine! How amazing is my hubby to be?? There was also a small wooden box on the table...
When I opened it, I saw this! The tree is made out of toothpicks and moss and the bottom is filled with moss and jewelry. Oh and did I mention that Toph made this?? Such a talented & thoughtful fella!
After dinner, I went out and bought myself a little something. I have been meaning to purchase a nice guitar for a long time but never actually did it. Finally on Saturday night, I bought this gorgeous guitar! I signed up for guitar and vocal lessons so I really needed to finally do it and invest in a good instrument. Now I just need to learn how to play!
On my actual birthday a couple of friends met Toph & I at a great restaurant called Rye & Thyme. We enjoyed some delicious brunch & live music with some really great friends! It was a perfect start to the day!
Sunday night, we went to my parents house and had a big family get together to celebrate. It was a night of pizza, cake, gifts and lots of love & laughter. I have the most wonderful family!! My sister made me a card that is identical to a card I made for her on her 21st birthday which is really cool and my parents got us our cake topper for the wedding that I have been in love with since the moment I saw it!!
Monday I got to spend the day with my lovely friend Christina who I just don't get to see enough of any more! We used to work together so I was spoiled and got to see her every day! We met up at the mall and had a day filled with delicious food, wine and shopping!
That covers it! My 29th Birthday was fantastic and I am very excited to finish up my new list so I can post it here on the bloggity blog and get the ball rolling!! Hope everyone is having a lovely week so far!
