My Birthday!

Yesterday was my 24th birthday!! I had an awesome day filled with delicious food, amazing gifts, and some of my favorite people 🙂 I spent most of the day lounging around in my pjs due to the snow storm, but it was so nice to just relax and do nothing! PLUS, I woke up to the most beautiful picture when I looked outside my window!

As if waking up to a snow day wasn’t enough, I also woke up to the smell of freshly baked cupcakes 🙂 Definitely not the worst way to start your day if you ask me…

For breakfast I had avocado toast with a fried egg on top. I used Whole Food’s Market Seeduction bread (as usual) and mixed the mashed avocado with a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. I also had hazelnut coffee in my favorite mug that Rich got me for Christmas 🙂

After breakfast, I opened my Warby Parker home try-on package to test out some new glasses. My sister works at Warby Parker and has been telling me to try some of the glasses, so I finally ordered a few to try on.

They make it so easy for you to do! All you do is go on the website, pick out 5 pairs of glasses you would like to try on, and then they send you the box for free. Once you try the pairs on and decide which one you like, you send them back and order the pair online. You can send them your eye glass prescription and everything! It’s pretty awesome I must say 🙂

After figuring out which glasses I wanted to get, I opened up some presents from Rich 🙂 I got a new pair of leggings, a manduka yoga mat (you can’t see it too well in the picture, but it’s this awesome zebra stripe pattern), an Alex and Ani ring and bracelet, and a small bracelet from Tiffany (gotta love those blue bags!)

Apparently, it was also National Pizza Day yesterday, so of course I had to have some pizza for lunch! I got this one from the frozen section of Whole Food’s Market. It’s actually really tasty, pretty fresh, and super easy to make. It’s usually one of my go-to meals on busy days when I don’t have time to prepare lunch/dinner. I think it’s called Albert’s Pizza…the cheese is underneath the sauce which is kinda weird but also really awesome because I tend to like more sauce than cheese on my pizza.

After lunch, I noticed a birthday package outside my front door trying to survive the snow! It was such a great surprise (thanks Olivia)!

Cutest. Card. Ever.

Lipstick, nail polish, lavender soap, eye masks, and a cute little makeup bag! The perfect combination for a much needed day of pampering 🙂 AND look at the envelope she put the card in! She’s so creative! AND the card was written with scented colored pens. I want those!

More presents! A card from my niece and nephew, some school supplies (can never go wrong with that!), an instant camera (so cool!), and this cute little sign that I am officially obsessed with! There are so many things I love about that quote LOL.

And my day ended with an awesome dinner and these delicious cupcakes! Overall, a great birthday! Can’t believe I’m 24, but I’m definitely excited for what this year has to offer. Hope you guys have a great day!
