Happy Happy Birthday to Me!

Sunday October 7, 2012

Today is my birthday! YAI!!!! I am now 24 years old! 

I knew it would be a busy busy day today, so I decided to wear something more casual and comfy (rather than last night's formal-ish blue dress). I went with my usual florals, color, and overall happy style.

We started my special day off by gathering together to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Petit Paris, a french bakery. Everything was SOOO good!

Then we walked around the mall to do some last minute birthday shopping ;)

Later at night we all gathered for our traditional Family B-Day Dinner. After dinner, we all sang Happy Birthday and devoured Angel Cake with blueberry sauce.

Once we were all stuffed, we proceeded to opening all the beautiful presents. I got soooo many nice things, I feel so blessed!

My grandmother was a very funny judge of how good each of my presents were. Some presents, like these beach hats, she really liked:

Other presents, like these funky Candyland heels, she did not like:

And then there was this beach bag....

Well, she decided to join in on my silliness with this present ;)

What can I say? I'm a goofball. Correction, my ENTIRE family is a goofball. 

I had such a fun birthday this year!! Although, we did miss my brother Mike who lives in Europe (Wish you were here Mike!). Apart from that, it was a fantastic day ;)
