So if you missed my previous post, yesterday was my birthday! 9/22!
I honestly didn’t want to do anything too big so I kept it very simple.
My hubby and I decided to go to this local skating rink. We haven’t been skating in so long so it was like nostalgia for me plus a good workout! Haha!
Later in the day, my family organized a catered dinner and ordered from the Mediterranean restaurant called Baladi.
They ordered falafel, chicken and beef wraps, chicken kebabs, and muhammarah!
When I tell you everything was delicious, OMG I came back for seconds and thirds! Lol. I normally don’t eat Mediterranean food but I am open to trying new dishes and this spot gets 10 stars from me! They did not disappoint!
They also ordered me a specialty cake from “Nothing But Bundt Cakes” with a white chocolate raspberry flavored cake! Mannn the whole night, I was saying that this cake was absolutely amazing! No lie I had 3 pieces, that’s how awesome it was!
I have to say a had a great birthday and I am grateful for my family for making it such a special day!
People always ask if you feel different when you hit a milestone birthday but I feel the same exact way as I did yesterday! Lol
From graduating from Penn State University, moving to NYC with my hubby, having authentic experiences as a true New Yorker both good and bad, starting my spiritual journey to enlightenment, building great friendships along the way, moving back home to Southern Virginia (which was one of my birthday wishes!) and everything in between, I have to say that I’ve had a lot of awesome experiences in my 20s!
I’m excited to see what’s in store for the future! =)
My hubby and I went on a stroll on the boardwalk today. There was a slight breeze but the sun was peaking out so the weather was perfect!
We were starving so we went to this Puerto Rican spot called Mojito Cafe for lunch. I ordered a Black Cherry Peach Mojito. I thought it was a weird combo but the waitress said it taste great so I decided to give it a try! She was right it was a good choice!
For lunch, I ordered a Pernil Asado (Garlic flavored pulled pork) with Tostones (fried plantains). It was amazing! Pernil is one of my favorite Puerto Rican dishes so this definitely hit the spot! =)
