My 23rd Birthday!

Hello everyone! Today I thought I'd share a few pictures from my 23rd birthday, which was yesterday! I had such an amazing time and had surprises literally all day, it was so much fun :)

My Mom came here to celebrate Thanksgiving with me and she was leaving to go home two days before my birthday so she brought my present with her, which to my surprise was a pair of Michael Kors boots!  I opened them about a week before my birthday and I've been wearing them ever since :)

The night before my birthday I got home and my boyfriend had decorated the house for me and made my favorite meal! On my birthday morning he made me pumpkin french toast because I love pumpkin anything and french toast is probably my favorite breakfast item :) He put candles in it for me the way his Mom always did for him and his sister :)

While I was in the other room doing my makeup he put out cards and my presents from him, all of which I loved so much. I could tell how much attention he has been paying to me whenever we go out because everything he got me were things I have looked at but wouldn't buy myself; I put the necklace he got me from J Crew on straight away! Oh, and the earmuffs from there as well, haha, I thought they were so cute and fluffy in the store and I was so happy to see that he got them for me!

I have been waiting anxiously to get our Christmas tree and even though we're both going home for Christmas and won't get to enjoy it for the entire month, I still really wanted one! So we went out yesterday and got it and the stand and it's so big and beautiful!  It's my first live tree since I was probably 10 years old and I can't wait to decorate it tonight!

Before we went to dinner we stopped and got my package and card from my dad :)

My boyfriend told me about a month ago that my favorite restaurant was booked up until Christmas and the other location near us was closed for renovations. Both of which I bought, so he told me he found a really good Italian restaurant and that's where we would go. On the way he said, "What's that over there?" and I looked and we were at my favorite restaurant! Both locations were completely open the whole time! It was such a good surprise because I got my favorite meal I order there which is chicken and waffles! I had never tried it before eating at this place, but it's SO good. We also ordered beignets  for dessert because at breakfast when I jokingly said, "Where's my cake?" he told me that we'd just order dessert at the restaurant and that we didn't need a whole cake. We'd seen other people order them but they take a while to make so we never had before, but they were so worth it!

Speaking of cake, my birthday cake had been in the fridge all day! He told me he had to go pick up a cake for a co-worker who is retiring (believable because he's been working on the retirement party for weeks now) and I believed that too. When we got home from dinner he said I needed to go into the other room so he could bring out my last surprise. When he told me to come out he had a red velvet cake with lit candles! It was so pretty and SO delicious :)

 I got so many lovely gifts, cards and messages from people and overall I had such a great day, my only complaint is that I had so much fun that it went by way too fast! I hope you enjoyed this post, I know I enjoyed going back through the pictures :)
