As you can tell my new camera has STILL not left my hand. I probably should surgically attach it to make life easier. Obviously, I am not wearing my birthday suit, but an absolutely adorable dress I snagged at H&M quite awhile ago. I searched high and low for what to wear for my party and ended up just going with an oldie but goodie – and I am so glad I did. This is the silhouette I look best in and I will take any opportunity to wear those pumps.
I had an absolutely amazing time with about 50ish of my closest friends at Eighteenth Street Lounge (who had $20 bottles of wine on Happy Hour special which you know we took major advantage of), they even surprised me with a cake in the middle of the lounge and sang at the top of their lungs. It was so cute. I truly have the best friends a girl can have. Towards the end of the party even the 2 on my cake was exhausted.
Saturday J took me on a surprise bday/date night to a restaurant I have been dying to try, Graffiato. It is Mike Isabella’s, from Top Chef (we are both big fans), restaurant and it was absolutely fantastic! Mike was even working the Expo the whole time we were there! They had Prosecco on tap (and is the only restaurant in the world with it) and their White House Pizza was to die for – a place after my own heart… champagne and pizza. This is a must go for anyone in DC.
All in all, my 25th birthday was a success and I would be remised if I didn’t thank you lovely readers for all the birthday love you sent me.
25 is going to be fabulous.
