I turned 35! If you know me at all you know that birthdays are a big deal and I love celebrating them. This year I was not as much up to the task. I was scheduled to watch my nephew on my birthday and it was the middle of the week so I was not too into it plus PREGNANT. After few friends asked me about it I finally decided to host a small brunch at my house with a few of my close girlfriends. It was lovely, and pretty nice and relaxing and in the comfort of my own house. I made simple things, a coffee cake (https://lilluna.com/recipe-tip-deal-and-video-of-the-week-quick-coffee-cake/) crustless quiche(which is one of my go to recipes for brunch for a crowd mix 1 cup bisquick, 2 cups milk, 5 eggs, 2 cups cheese and salt and pepper then pour in a 9×13 pan and bake at 400 for about 45 min then when it comes out I like t top it with fresh chopped chives so easy and so good), caprese salad, and prosciutto wrapped asparagus. Well right after my birthday brunch Em was home from school and the girls were down for a nap. After nap time we went for a mani pedi and the girls absolutely loved it. Brock stayed home to take care of dinner.
The girls said they felt like princesses and it was so nice there was no one else there. Violet had a little mishap or more of a Violet moment and decided she did not like the color she picked after they had already panted her nails so she tried to wipe of the paint #ohviolet well they ended up letting her pick another color and repainted her nails. The ladies were so sweet with the girls and gave them candy and put on the trolls soundtrack so the girls were in heaven. I just loved having an hour long pedi and foot massage. Well we headed back home for dinner and then we went out for donuts to finish the night.
Just because my actual birthday was over did not mean that celebrating me was over! That weekend Brock took the girls and I to afternoon tea which I love doing. We feel so fancy and girly and Brock humors us. The girls and i got dressed up and they even picked a bunch of accessories.
This year I did not do my typical girls wine trip of even a vacation but maybe next year I will feel more up to a big celebration.
