I turned 26 a little bit ago, and really didn't make a big fuss about it at all, except for taking a day off work, getting Jordan to skip classes, having breakfast in bed, cupcakes in Georgetown for second breakfast, a cherry blossom cruise on the Potomac, a taco picnic in our neighborhood park, getting my nails and hair done, dinner in Capitol Hill, and frolicking around in the tiara (never too old!) and poofiest skirt all day long.
Oh. And spending the weekend before in Miami.
^ Officially the best cupcakes in DC are from Baked & Wired. Don't listen to anybody else.
^ Spending the day with this face was the best birthday present, really. Thanks for skipping law school for me, Jord! xo
^ The cherry blossoms came out that day! A birthday miracle!
^ Tacos from Taqueria Nacional
^ While Jordan attended an evening class, I skipped off to Georgetown for a little bit of birthday pampering. My dear friend Holly met up with me for mani pedis, and then I got my hair done at Drybar (my first time there, somehow!). Jennifer at the Georgetown location is literally the first stylist in the history of my entire life to actually style my hair exactly how I envisioned. Thank you Jennifer!!
We celebrated that evening, just the two of us, with dinner at Rose's Luxury in Capitol Hill. The food there is crazy good and inventive, plus I support any restaurant with quirky spooning art.
The next evening, we gathered a few friends for dinner at Lincoln.
^ I realized I have almost no pictures of friends on this blog! We do our own thing most of the time, but we do love the DC pals we've picked up during our time here! Above are a few of the friends who helped celebrate my birthday (others left before we could take the pic, unfortch). Thank you all for helping make my birthday extra lovely! xo
