Disclaimer: typing at Yosemite after a few… :)
Boo Radley’s Cupcakes for my birthday – have to have a sweet element! Brought these to work.
While at work, Nicole posted the sweetest blog post ever. Made me go “awww” and smile really big :) !
Came home and my mom, Nicole, David, and Sam were making dinner.
I requested veggie lasagna…
We don’t discriminate :) all tomato sauces are created equal!
I opened presents and received this 25 lb. bag of flour!
And this cute necklace from Nicole! Plus carbonada noodles, Tina’s book Carrots ‘n’ Cake, an egg separator, an H&M skirt, straws, and so much more!!
And my mom got me the coolest gift EVVVVVVERRRRRR…. it’s in the mail and will arrive on Wednesday!!!
Plus she bought groceries for the trip to Yosemite that my friends and I are going on!
David and Sam arranging the garlic bread….
And the veggie lasagna!!!!
My two faves… Kyle & Nicole getting ready for dinner
My plate. This veggie lasagna is SO SO SO good…. and Nicole’s impromptu salad with leftover corn on the cob – YUMMMY. First time using ranch dressing in a while….
Fast Forward to Friday…
Kyle and I drove to Groveland (near Yosemite) and immediately stocked the fridge with essentials – beer.
After paddle boarding with Kyle to the Marina, my beautiful AOII friends arrived! Kali, Megan, and Amy met us at the Marina and then we raced back home to spend time on the patio…
Enjoying beers, goldfish, and chips + salsa. We chatted about old 90s hits – what did people dance to while in clubs during the 90s without all the techno rap stuff? TLC, Backstreet Boys, Jay Z??
The AOII girls – Kali, Megan, Me, Amy
Trying to get the effin can of black beans open!
It was impossible!! Cheesy pic of Kyle, you look good Amy!
We struggled with this for a good half hour!
Dinner: BBQ chicken salad (winner!!) and three random pizzas
Best part of dinner!
My birthday was amazing! Honestly I don’t feel like right now I have enough time to fully express how grateful I am for all of my family and friends that are making this the best 24th birthday ever. Just know that I love you all and I will write more later!!
This whole weekend I’ll be posting short n’ sweet posts because I’m in Yosemite – sorry! Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
Question: What hits from the 90s do you remember?
The convo we started earlier began with talking about Eve 6. They’re getting back together didjaknowthat??
