Birthday Celebrations!

Birthday Celebrations!

So as y'all know, my birthday was last week. 

However, I don't think that the festivities should be reduced to one single day, which is why I turned up all week.  Okay, it was more like respectable celebrations, but I still had a blast!

One of the fun ways that I celebrated was with Saturday brunch! I spent the morning with some of my FAVORITE ladies. We laughed, talked, told stories and ate tacos. One of my favorite spots in downtown Houston, El Big Bad, has the BEST tacos and Mexican street corn (try it, and thank me later) and is fun for big groups...not to mention they have incredible margs and sangria. Can't go wrong!

With every single way that I celebrated, this birthday made me feel so lavished and loved. My friends and family spoiled me and I am so excited for this next year of life.

Like I said before, this is MY year.

 The only person who loves tacos more than me. And I love her more than tacos: LARN!
