In years previous, I at all times wished an enormous ol’ celebration for my birthday – both a celebration or an evening out with my associates. And, certain, I had A LOT of enjoyable, however as I become older, I desire celebrating my birthday with simply my boys. To have a good time #39, I loved a low-key day, and it was precisely how I wished to spend my birthday. (However, when I flip 40 subsequent 12 months, we’re going ALL OUT!!!)
My morning began with a free birthday drink from Starbucks. I may order something I wished, so I went with a decaf iced americano with a splash of water and a pump of toffee nut syrup. Mmm! It was good and such a scrumptious approach to kick off my birthday!
After that, I spent the morning working after which took a break for a manicure. My nails NEEDED it. Holy cow, they have been a large number. The refresh was simply what they wanted! 🙂 FYI: The colour is OPI I Am What I Amethyst.
After getting my nails completed, I went to a bodily remedy appointment. (My again and hips have been actually bugging me currently.) Then, I picked up Quinn from college, so we may have an early chicken dinner at The Oysterman. We truly celebrated my birthday there final 12 months too!
Earlier within the day, I discovered that June 19th is National Martini Day (National MarTINA Day), so I ordered a vodka martini with olives to kick-off the celebration!
Quinn ordered a Shirley Temple, which he stated tasted “spicy” (due to the soda). He not often drinks soda, so I can see why he’d assume it was spicy! Haha!
I ordered the ahi tuna and crispy Brussels spouts for dinner.
The crispy Brussels sprouts have been wonderful. I extremely suggest them! 🙂
When it was time for presents, my boys gave me an excellent mushy and comfy sweatshirt from Seabird Coffee (certainly one of my favourite espresso outlets) and tickets to see Zac Brown Band play later this summer season. They nailed it with the presents this 12 months! 🙂
Then, after all, no birthday could be full with out dessert, so we headed subsequent door to The Anchor (owned by the identical of us as The Oysterman). Quinn and I shared an enormous chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. It was do-it-yourself and severe scrumptious!
It was really an superior birthday in each approach! 🙂
