25 Candles

Finally I have time to sit down and write about my birthday. It’s been a crazy week because it was my last one at home from Christmas break- lots of packing and school prep. Anyways.. on January 4th I turned 25, WOW! I’m excited to see where this year will lead me. I was fortunate to spend my birthday with the people who mean most to me- family and friends (Tim.. you’re in the family category). 

FRIDAY was spent celebrating with Tim. We went to pick up my birthday gift… any guesses? It’s black and gold and pictured at the end of the post!  We ate at The Capital Grill, which was more than delicious. The mac and cheese listed below is literally on my mind daily now…

 He was more than happy to carry my shopping bags around 😉

 Here is that lobster mac and cheese I mentioned…yep…drooling!

SATURDAY: As a tradition, I spend the day shopping with my mom. We headed down to Buckhead to shop at Lenox and Phipps Plaza. We grabbed lunch at Twist (you’ll discover this is one of my go-to places to eat..). For dinner, we tried something new as a family (and Tim :] ) and did a fondue dinner. It was delicious! We picked up that amazing seafood/ pink/ yummy yummy sauce from Kani house for some added deliciousness. Of course, chocolate fondue followed the meal. I was also surprised with these beautiful flowers from Tim- he’s the best.

The following Thursday, I celebrated with the girls.  I got my makeup done at Sephora as a complimentary VIB offer, so the selfie is to show off her work! I ended up going with a lighter lip color for the night out. We went to Twist (see what I was talking about?) then out to dance afterward.

  • I’ve never loved Old Navy jeans until I tried on this pair. They material is so soft and stretchy but they don’t stretch out on me, even at the knees 🙌🏼.

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
