@ my 25th Birthday Dinner Celebration
I'm going to be completely honest when I say, turning 25 feels strange. I'm not trying to be dramatic, I realize it's not an old age*, but I must say I feel like age 25 catapults someone from the "early twenties" phase of life into the next phase... and I don't even know what that phase is called. I feel like I maybe know what it includes. a)College is complete (or very close) b)careers should be started c) babies if you don't already have them should be somewhere in the mix (for now they're all at my sister's house) and d( saving our hard earned money suddenly feels more important than it ever has before. Am I growing up? This is weird. More pictures from the day here.
Also, on the subject of birthdays, I must say I feel so blessed and loved from so many people, especially my family. They're just the best people ever. The day started with a breakfast date at Rich's Bagels before work with my mom (aka bff). We had a fun fast date over oatmeal and diet coke. My kind of breakfast. However, let me tell you something about Rich's Bagels. They make an incredibly delicious asiago cheese bagel. I rarely hardly ever get it, but regardless I always leave smelling like it (and so will you!). I carried the cheesy smell all the way to work with me, which was kinda annoying.
My lunch hour began with cute EVC coming into work with my birthday present from my sister and her fam. Evie not only decorated the bag hereself, but also had our favorite saying, "Oh yeahhhh", adorned on the wrap. She's very detail oriented. Out in the car were my dad and Ellie waiting to head over to Rio Grande. Evie made me "birthday punch" while we waited for our food. See below for recipe. Needless to say, I really enjoyed my lunch dates.
Birthday Punch By Evie
Ice and Water
Mix ingredients together until they look plain gross. Dash a final dash of salt into the serving cup. Try the punch, immediately give a look of discomfort.
Moving right along to dinner. Dinner was a highlight. I wore red lipstick, probably to help myself feel more mature, I mean I am 25. When TT and I arrived at Mikado, the whole family was there, minus some very important members (Daniel, Stephen, Bry and Ellie Beebs). We enjoyed appetizers, lots of sushi, and fabulous desserts. Generous gifts and delicous food aside, I had a wonderful day, spent with the people I love the most. Thank you for making my birthday so special!
