Well, my twenties are officially behind me. I turned 30 today. I came into work to see my friend, Nicole, decorated my cubicle. I was so stunned!
That was so sweet of her. Especially since she left for Hawaii for the week today!
And she got me a tiara! Yay!
For dinner we went to an Italian restaurant in midtown Sacramento called Paesano’s. I had a blood orange margarita that was pretty good.
They gave Nicky a ball of raw dough to play with. Nicky and my mom tried to make a dinosaur.
I got pasta with spinach, bacon, caramelized onions, and tomatoes in a cream sauce. It reminded me of a dish my aunt makes. It was really good but too rich with the cream sauce.
After dinner, I opened my presents, then we went to Leatherby’s for dessert. I got a small vanilla sunday with marshmallow sauce. Boring I know but it was tasty!
Nick got me this really soft blanket they are selling at Costco in a dark teal color. Seriously, if they have them at your Costco, get one, they are so soft! And only $10! I have a purple one too and I LOVE them! He also got me this pretty pink and silver glittery card and a See’s chocolate pop.
My mom gave me a pretty turquoise sweater. (I have the same one in charcoal gray and I love it! It’s really soft! You can find them at Nordstrom in a ton of different colors in the Point of View department.) She also got me Benetint and They’re Real mascara from Benefit. I love that mascara, and I’ve wanted to try the Benetint which is a lip and cheek tint/stain.
Gina and Nicky got me this beautiful sparkly bracelet and earrings. I love them!
I have been dreading this day for a while now, but now that it’s here, I don’t feel so bad. I had a great day (despite being at work) and I feel so blessed with all of the well wishes and support I have from my family and friends. I think this decade might be a good one for me.
