So my birthday was last Monday... My 21st birthday, in fact. Here's how the magical day went (oh yeah, I just called it magical).
I woke up to this lovely display from my roomie...
Seriously, how cute is that cookie jar? I'm obsessed/can not wait to fill it up with fresh baked goodies!
She also made me a yummy breakfast pizza so I snagged a few pieces of that while I read blogs and listened to some music.
I had to run a few errands but when I got home my roommate and I suited up and headed off to a few thrift stores to grab supplies for my party (post on that tomorrow).
We found some great stuff, had lunch at our favorite sandwich shop (Bourgeois Pig) and got home in the early evening. We both crashed for a little nap then got all dressed up for dinner. Originally I had wanted to go to The Purple Pig but after over an hour of waiting and an extremely rude hostess we decided to try a different place--Volare. We were seated right away, I had my first glass of legal wine and we stuffed our faces with a Sausage, Pea, & Mushroom Risotto and a homemade tortellini with spicy tomato sauce. I highly recommend it! Great service, delicious food, and a great wine list.
(a sweet gift from my wonderful friend Alex. A cookbook and the cutest little measuring spoons. Sistuh knows me well :)!!)
I finished off my night with some more wine and a heart-to-heart with my roomie. It was such a nice and relaxing day which, for me, was perfect.
I believe most of my readers are older than me so I'd like to ask... How did you spend your 21st birthday? These stories are always so fun :). Leave it in the comments!
Thanks so much for your patience with me last week. Some time off was JUST what I needed. I also appreciate all of your birthday wishes--you all are so sweet!
