First of all, thank you all so much on your sweet comments and tweets again of congrats. It really was a weekend to never forget and I’m so glad I could share it with everyone, woo. I mean my best friend flew in from North Carolina, then I got engaged. I mean what could else could I ask for?
But alas I present The best birthday in the history of all of my birthdays Part II.
Saturday: On my actual birthday me, Matt and Jen made the rounds to my parent’s house then had brunch with Matt’s dad and ended up at his mom’s house afterwards to celebrate a bit. After celebrating with the parents, Matt stayed at his mom’s house to watch the draft and Jen and I went off to shop a bit and get ourselves some fancy schmancy manicures.
After our girly day of hanging out we went back to the apartment and hung out with Matt for a bit before getting ready for the night. My sister came and picked us up and dropped us off at dinner (which was so nice of her to be DD all night) while she did her own thing (heck she even paid for dinner, such a good sister). Dinner was fun at Tokyo Wako, their food is so tasty and I was still giddy from having my two favorite people there and being engaged, my gosh I’m engaged!
Once we finished dinner, we killed time a bit before heading over to the wine bar. After that, everyone started showing up and it was a great celebrating my birthday and our engagement with all of my friends. I was seriously in birthday heaven.
All in all it was a great night, tons of food and drinks and lots of friends. I had a great time celebrating with everyone that came. After the bar a bunch of us eventually made our way back to our apartment and when I walked into our apartment this is what I saw this time…
My sister, while we were at dinner, filled our apartment with 25 balloons and left a present for me on the table. It was so surreal and adorable and cute and fun and I loved it.
We all hung out a bit and drank some more, played music and laughed and ohmygoshed and yeah, it was fabulous. Best birthday ever.
Sunday: Woke up and hung out a bit. Stopped at In-N-Out for breakfast/lunch before dropping Jen off at the airport. I was pretty sad to see her go but then again I am seeing her in a month so it’s all good. Afterwards Matt and I made it home and I took a nap (I mean man this weekend was exhausting, but in the best way possible). Post-nap, Matt, my dad, my brother and I headed over to tell my grandma the good news of our engagement. It was fun to have such good news for her.
After visiting my grandma we went to my parent’s house later to celebrate my birthday and our engagement with my family. It was so fun to retell the story and have some red velvet cupcakes and champagne, because honestly I still can’t totally believe it.
All in all it was the most amazing birthday I have ever had and I couldn’t have asked for anything else. And I’m so glad my family and friends were there to share it all with me!
