I turned 24 on Sunday.
And days in which we celebrate our arrival into the world should always be special. This year was no different, so I feel it deserves a post.
After all, it was my first birthday spent in New Zealand – heck my first birthday spent in another country!
In the morning, before I even had a chance to have breakfast, I woke to beautiful roses from my ridiculously romantic boyfriend James.
The spoiling didn’t stop there. Many of my Kiwi friends came over before noon for tea and cupcakes.
James’ mom Sami baked delicious frosting-covered mini cakes, which displayed 24 (WOW time flies) long metallic candles.
FlashtyPants made sure to offer his assistance in blowing out the glimmering sparklers, climbing up on a chair beside me with a cheeky grin, a similar one that graced his face hours before when he opened up my birthday pressies.
The rest of the day involved watching the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with the result of THAT. But it was still fun to cheer Pac Man on!
In the evening we migrated back to the couch to watch Full Metal Jacket and in between I day-dreamed of what I could create with my new Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 blender/food processor!
One thing is for sure… 24 is already one for the books. And I’m just getting started!
