26 Years Young

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that Wednesday was my Birthday! It turned out to be a great day, despite having to work and ending up on the bathroom floor at the end of the day praying I wouldn't vomit (I guess that's what happens when you eat your weight in sugar). Haha

My mom wasn't going to be able to make it up to see me on my birthday, so she took me to lunch on Monday and brought me homemade cookies (and a Rubbermaid container of raw cookie dough). I, of course, had to eat it all on Monday before it had a chance to go bad! 

Skip a day of boringness in between, then we get to my Birthday morning which started off with donuts from a coworker...

Then by 10:00, we cut into my cake that a coworker made for me...

Then I got a delivery of gorgeous flowers from Jacob...

When I walked into the apartment after work, I was so surprised to see this...

My wonderful husband drove to my favorite cupcake shop (30+ minutes away) during his lunch hour and set up this sweet surprise for me! I refused to tell him what I wanted (because for once, I didn't really want anything), so he settled for getting me a Target gift card (good call on his part ;)). 

We then went out to eat pizza with my brother, SIL, and niece...

Her face was priceless when they brought out my apple dessert pizza (which is one of my favorite things ever). 

Once I got home, I realized that the 3 donuts, 3 pieces of cake, lasagna (lunch), pizza, wine, and apple dessert pizza were probably not the best idea. Instead of inhaling those delicious cupcakes like I had every intention of doing, I found myself laying on the bathroom floor praying I could keep it all down. Haha. No lie, I was afraid I was going to die or go into a sugar coma on my birthday! 

Since I wasn't able to force the cupcakes down that evening, I had to get up and eat one the next morning so Jacob would know how much I appreciated them (even though sweets were the last thing on my mind). Haha 

Hopefully by the time I turn 27, I'll learn to stop after the first helping of sweets...


  1. Happy belated birthday! Sounds like a lot of celebrating and a lot of good treats. Hope you feel better by now! Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Happy Birthday! Sounds like it was a delicious day even though you felt like poo at the end! Hope you are feeling better!

  4. Happy Belated Birthday! On my birthday this year I ate red velvet cookies for breakfast and red velvet cake for lunch. Good thing calories don't count on your birthday! ;)

  5. Okay, I've obviously been off the internet for FOREVER.

  9. Happy belated birthday! I just found your wonderful blog!

    Yeah, sugar comas are never a good thing. We all tend to go over oars on our birhdays. I'm just glad you were able to keep it all down. What a sweet and romantic idea your husband had. Truly awesome. And yup, can never go wrong with a gift card!

  10. What a wonderful birthday!! And A target gift card is ALWAYS a good idea :) What do you think you'll get with it? Jealous of your sugar filled day, your coworkers seem super awesome!!
