Yes, yes, I finally had to come to terms with turning 25 this past weekend. While I think I’ve experienced a decent amount in 25 (short-ish) years of life, there’s still something weird about facing the quarter-century mark. This year was entirely different than last (click here to read about my 24th birthday celebrations), a bit more low-key but all-around awesome!
Boat Shoe Boy & I kicked off the festivities on Friday night with a trip to Scott’s Seafood Grill & Bar in Folsom. Despite the fact that I’ve been a number of times (to two different locations), I always seem to forget how much I like it! Great food, service and ambiance; all around winner. After our seafood extravaganza, we headed to The Cellar, our go-to Tuesday evening trivia joint, for some off-hours, post-dinner birthday drinks.
With my actual birthday falling on Sunday, the entire crew headed to Tower Cafe for a celebratory brunch. I’ve heard amazing things about Tower since the womb and thought this would be the perfect occasion to give it a go. I think it was perhaps a bit too hyped, but definitely delish! Now, normally I enjoy being outside on my birthday — a BBQ, a beach outing, some poolside relaxation, etc. I have never ever celebrated a birthday with rain and 65 degree weather (no, not even in London). Being that it was a bit chilly and overcast, I got the rest of the day to hang out indoors with some of my favourite people. Low-key but lots of laughs and lots of fun! Check back tomorrow to catch a glimpse of the birthday sushi-making extravaganza that took place on Monday. I’ve been wanting to make sushi for the longest time and I finally got to put my skills to the test!
Thanks to everyone who made my birthday so much fun!
Lots of love,
