Nobody Likes You When You’re 23- Birthday Recap

Is it acceptable to sing that Blink182 song for the next year until I’m 24? No?

I had an amazing birthday. I’m a big fan of birthdays! Not just my birthday, but everyone’s birthday! Growing up they were always a big deal. I looked forward to my parents and siblings birthdays almost as much as my own. We always spent the day together doing an activity of the birthday person’s choice and then having a family party with their dinner of choice, cake and presents. And every other year we got to a have a big party with all our friends. I have such great memories of birthdays as a kid.

Kurtis doesn’t find birthdays as exciting as I do, he never went all out like my side of the family did, but I’m slowly teaching him my ways!

For my birthday this year, I just wanted to relax. I spent the morning being lazy with Sawyer while Kurtis went into work for a little bit. That afternoon, we went to my parents for a birthday brunch with my family. My mom made biscuits and gravy from scratch (yum), and we had cupcakes and gifts.

Later that night, my mother in law came over to babysit and Kurtis took me out. I honestly don’t think we’ve been out for a date just the two of us since Sawyer was maybe a month old. We were due!

He took me to this grilled cheese restaurant I’ve been wanting to try. It wasn’t the fanciest place, but I’ve been dying to check it out and it did not disappoint! They have all different variations of grilled cheese, or you can build your own. Get this…you can even get a grilled cheese on a donut. They also have a bunch of different types of tomato soup for dipping. I wanted to try everything! It’s called Tom and Chee, and if there’s one near you, I highly reccomend it!

I got a crunchy grilled cheese. It had bacon bits and bbq potato chips in it. It was beyond delicious.

Kurtis had a fancy grilled cheese with mushrooms, grilled onions, and peppers on half rye, half white bread. He also got a Little Dipper, which was a mini cup of tomato soup for dipping.

Neither of us was brave enough to get a grilled cheese donut, but we promised each other next time we would (and there will definitely be a next time).

Tom and Chee is located in this cute little promenade, so after dinner we walked around for a little bit and sat down for a while in front of the outdoor fireplace. Then, we walked down to Whole Foods to get desert.

Whole Foods is probably one of my top 10 favorite places ever. I just love it. We picked out a few different French macaroons and a mini cheesecake. They were so good!

It was so great to get out and have some “us” time. I love low key nights with my husband. Nothing makes me happier.

Even better, Kurtis’ gift hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, so when it does it’ll be like my birthday all over again, am I right? Anybody else secretly like when some gifts are late so they can keep celebrating? Can’t be just me… 😉
