Quarter Century Celebration Part I

Like some of you may already know, this week I turned twenty five. Eeek! That's a quarter of a century! I can honestly say that I've never felt better though, and that this has been the best birthday yet! The amazing part? We're not even done celebrating yet! Since my birthday fell on a Thursday this year, I decided to save the raging till the weekend. Tonight, a few of my closest friends and I are hitting downtown like it's 1999! I seriously can't wait. Till then, I wanted to share with you how spoiled I've been this week... here's a little summary of the gifts that I received.


My family and friends know me so well.. one of my biggest passions is collecting vintage designer bags, and this year, I got THREE of them for my birthday!! Couldn't be happier.

{My hubby spoiled me with a gorgeous burgundy suede Chanel bag and a diamond necklace}

{From my family I recieved a perfect Gucci messenger bag, a Tory Burch green trench and some new running shoes}

{One of my besties surprised me with a lovely vintage Fendi!}

After opening all my gifts, my family took me out to dinner at a new French bistro, that recently opened in Ocean Beach - BO beau.


{Yours truly, enjoying Le Romantique Cocktail - Belvedere black rasberry, pomegrante-rose petal nectar, champagne, and a rose petal}



{Pictured above: crispy brussels sprouts - pancetta, parmesan, balsamic - these were seriously amazing!}

{Golden Calamari - zesty marinara, cherry peppers}

{Moules Provencales - tomato, leek, saffron}


{Boeuf Bourguignon - baby carrots, pancetta, mushrooms, pearl onions, fingerling potatoes}

{Housemade Fettuccini - duck confit, roasted mushrooms, parmesan reduction}

{Steak Frites - rib eye au poivre, herb butter, haricot verts, pomme frites}





Overall, it was a perfect day. I seriously couldn't be more thankful! Thank you everyone for your sweet wishes and comments.

Now wish me luck, because it's time for round two!
