Birthday Breakfast

I’m 27 today!

It sounds much older when I say it out loud or see the actual number.


Who would have guessed I’d be so normal after seeing pictures like these? ;)


Yes, I used to wear lots of one-piece outfits. Didn’t you?

And maybe my mom dressed up like little dolls more than we would have wanted…


Maybe all my dreams haven’t come true yet, but I’m still holding onto them.

My heart is full, my dreams are big, and, in many ways, life as I know it is just starting.


And it’s my birthday, so I can pout or cry or laugh if I want to ;) pout

Nick made me a special birthday breakfast today (it was a surprise), and I couldn’t wait to see what he had planned.

Perfect timing on that post yesterday, Allison :)


Huevos Rancheros!


Nick heated up some corn tortillas and topped them with refried beans, over easy eggs, salsa, scallions, cilantro, avocado, and colby jack.

Plus some bacon.

Feliz cumpleanos a mi!



As for that present from my parents?


My dad and mom ordered me a HealthMaster!!!!


Bye-bye crappy Cuisinart.

I can’t wait to have smooth smoothies. No more random ice chunks or whole pieces of frozen fruit.

Thanks Dad and Mom!!!!


Now…what do I make first?
