So back to this brilliant birthday weekend. I turned 27, and the stars aligned and my family came together for an unusually hyped up birthday celebration. My sisters came up for the weekend and bought my movie tickets and dinner, my dad got us a hotel for the night and my mom had chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room the next morning and bought us breakfast at THE BEST little nook of a place downtown. That night in the hotel, I was telling my sister that I had no idea what was going on and why in the world birthday #27 would negate such a magical celebration out of nowhere. She said it was her theory that they had all finally realized how much a birthday so close to Christmas had sucked and had finally decided to make up for it. And I have to say it did the trick. It totally made up for all those birthdays that my friends could never come to because they were celebrating New Years Eve with their own families. It's hard when you're turning 12 and your life is tragic.
Anyway, shall we?
Here we are post dinner and movie/post laughing our butts off the entire night.
I went to bed at 3am that night and felt like napping for a year the next day.
The next morning, we brought our little sunshines to the hotel with us to hang for the day.
And the aforementioned chocolate covered strawberries before they were demolished by young and old alike...
It was an hour well spent, we were actually rather glad for it.
Goldy's was DIVINE. Cozy, friendly and warm with comfort food coming out their ears.
I'm typically a sweet over savory person when it comes to breakfast. But this time I could not resist their savory side. BEST BACON OF MY LIIIIIIIFE.
After breakfast, we found an alley that served us well for a group shot. Yes, that's a trash bag. Yes, we used a dumpster instead of selfie stick. Because we're WINNERS. Totally.
Oh yes, and then we went to Lush, just for SNIFFS and giggles. *BA DUM TSSSS*
