twenty-five & a video

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

so for my twenty-fifth birthday (on the 8th) I really just wanted to spend quality time with my loved ones. nothing too fancy, just wanted to have fun. it was a BLAST. i woke up early and got a good long run in in the morning. felt so good. then came home to my favorite breakfast made and some surprises from my sweet husband..he made a little shirt for Piper to wear that said "HBD MOMMY" i died when i saw her. we took some bikes to the crystal cove trail, which is a gorgeous trail along the cliffs overlooking the ocean. we really wanted to take P with us so we tried out a little seat for her that we borrowed from my sister and it worked! she's still a tad too small to be completely comfortable, but was fine. she even fell asleep. we couldn't get over that little helmet on her head. KILLED ME. gosh that girl. then we went to banzai to get our favorite acai bowls that of course, didn't disappoint. jason had a massage appointment ready for me when i got home so i left and got to enjoy one hour of heaven to myself. it was amazing. then bowling with the fam and dinner! topped off the night with a dance party and some ice cream cones and you've got a great birthday. in my opinion. 

until next year, march 8th!
