Yes, I am officially 35. I know, I know, I do not look it and I take that as a compliment because it means I have a young spirit and I am all about that mmkay? No but seriously, I had a lowkey but exciting birthday! The weekend before my birthday I went to San Diego for a quick whirlwind trip for the Run Rock N Roll San Diego half marathon. To learn more about that race, click here . I made a new friend, raced my heart out and had a blast!
The week of my birthday was pretty busy with the end of the regular school year, my mom having surgery and the start of working summer school. Whew! But I was able to have a few hours to celebrate with my girlfriends with some food and brews at my favorite spot in Turlock, Dustbowl Brewery and then walked around downtown and got some amazing photos. My friend Summer is a photographer/makeup artist/hair stylist and an amazing person! Every time we hang out it turns into a photo shoot which I love because I used to model. Here are some shots from that day.
Jumpsuit is Forever 21 and you will not believe how much I paid for it! So I was looking for either a backless romper or a two-piece crop and pant outfit. So obviously I was so excited to find this romper at Forever21, even more happy when I found out it was on clearance….why no one had already snatched it up I have no clue..guess it was meant for me. But I have not gotten to the best part. So not only was it on clearance, it was an EXTRA 50% OFF!!!! Yes!!! I purchased this romper for $7.50 if you can believe it!!! I’m all about the deals and saving money so I was beyond elated!! (I unfortunately could not locate the romper online, however I will link similar items below).
I love these ladies! No matter what was going on in their personal lives they still made sure to come out for my birthday and help me celebrate. Find you friends like this and you will never be alone again.
But this wasn’t all. On the day of my birthday I worked in the morning and then just hung out at home until it was time for dinner with my parents. But I did receive these oh so cute flowers from my girl Dana – she had the flowers shaped like a puppy and the resemblance to my Bambam is uncanning.
Yes, I wore the same romper from lunch with my friends on my birthday. Hey, it was two days apart okay? The photo in the purple romper was a couple days later with my favorite human ever, my niece Kendall Grace.
For dinner we went to a popular downtown restaurant, 10 East and enjoyed some happy hour drinks and pizza. I have been on a fancy schmancy pizza kick lately. Pizza Hut just isn’t cutting it anymore.
Per tradition, my father and I went to the Giants game. I was so excited because it was a Giants vs. Dodgers game and if you know baseball then you know this is one of the biggest rivalries in baseball. Although we were surrounded by Dodgers fan (at Oracle “AT&T” Park) and we lost, I had a blast. We stopped at Red’s Java House, there may be java in the name, but I did not see a single person drinking any kind of java, it was all brews and booze. My pops and I decided to try the paloma tequila cocktail and guys, I found my new summer drink. Grapefruit, tequila and all the fixings, it was so delicious. I also had a burger on a whole roll of authentic San Francisco french bread and guys, it. was. amazing. Alllll the carbs!!!
I wish I could say that we ate and drank our way through the game but if you know me, you know there was no food eaten, especially after this colossal of a sandwich.
All in all I had a blast of a birthday, it was more lowkey then I was used to but was able to spend it with those I love and isn’t that what it was all about?
