Lot 48: my 27 birthday

my 27 birthday

my 27th birthday was the best birthday of my life! and i do think it had a lot to with it being my first birthday in LA.  

when its my birhday, i make it a whole weekend.  party alll weekend, ya'll! my birthday always fall on memorial day weekend so thats easy to plan. 


the weekend started out by my kind coworker friend buying me my favorite ice cream cone from the food truck outside our work!  it was so sweet and was the best way to kick off the weekend!

the first thing we did was on saturday we went to this amazing pizza place that i had been dying to go to because i heard all the start go to it.  sorry, the pictures are from my insta stories.  i forgot to take real pictures!


when i first lived in LA, i drove past this restaurant every single day on my way to work! 

the room was so pretty! look at that staircase! but yes, i guess the other restaurant is where the stars eat! oh well.  it was delicious anyway! 


did you guys know i don't like cheese?  i always get pizza with no cheese.  i know its weird but i love it!

taran loooves cheese on his pizza though!!
the next thing we did was go to santa monica beach to have cake by the ocean just like in the song!



this proved to be much harder than you would think.  



with the wind, the cake got very sandy.  we took cute pictures and then tried to eat it but really we just got a mouthful of sand.  we put our feet in the water but our we weren't there to really play in the water, just to take pictures! 


the next thing we did was go to au fudge.  this is the restaurant jessica biel owns and i had been trying to go there for weeks.  i wanted to go there for a birthday dessert with friends but with everyone's schedules, it didn't work out.  the restaurant was so cute!


they had this sign at the back of the restaurant with some games you could play and a photo booth.  

i did an insta video of the restaurant and it is too cute to miss so i combined the little videos so you can see them here.  it really is the cutest restaurant ever!


i asked the waiter if jessica ever comes in and he says only for the bi-monthly owners meeting.  life would have been made if i got to see her!



i got this italian soda that was incredible.


on sunday my sister in law and her husband and two little boys came over for dinner.  we had burgers and she made me the most amazing cake! 


look at that! isn't she incredible!  it was too pretty to eat!  i loved the hollywood theme as it was my first birthday in hollywood!  she was so sweet to make it for me!


and she gave me the most thoughtful, fun cute gifts!  i am so lucky to have her as my sister in law!

on monday, my actual birthday, we went to catalina island! we had a total blast! 


i had been to the camping side of catalina island for a weeklong class trip in sixth grade and to avalon with my family for one day before and taran had been for one day one a port stop on a cruise.  we were excited to explore together.


tickets on the boat were half price because it was my birthday! holla!


pulling into the island! 



in high school, my friends and i would make each other signs that said "its my birthday" with our phone numbers on the bottom.  we would make each other wear the signs the whole birthday day and we would get random calls from guys singing happy birthday on our voice mail.  it was so much fun.  i told taran this and how much i loved that tradition and how you know me, how i love being the center of attention, how i wanted something that shouted it loud and proud that it was my birthday! so we went to the drugstore and made this getup! 


there was this incredible candy shop that blew my mind and i wanted everything in it.  


it was one of the best parts of the day.


i thought this was an old castle or something but it was just a casino.  i don't know why i thought that. 

we rented bikes and rode around the island and went to an arcade and played games but i don't have any pictures of that.

the last thing we did was a boat ride where half of it was under water.  we got to see a ton of fish. 


and then i remembered.  fish freak me out.  they are slimy and gross and why are they always looking at me? they just freak me out!


not that i didn't enjoy the boat ride but i kind of wanted to enjoy it from above, on the top level of the boat.  it was still fun though! 


it really was the best birthday of my life! i will remember it forever!

27 is going to be a great year!!

thanks for all the sweet birthday wishes!
