I love birthdays full stop.
So does Siri last Thursday was my 24th birthday (C'mon retirement) and I had been counting down if you have been follow me on Instagram (hollymay89) I was overly excited when I got this message from Siri.
God, love her.
On Wednesday night the boyfriend and I watched a movie which was odd for us considering it was a week night and I am usually in bed by 10pm but csonsidering my birthday was now only a couple of hours away. I was too excited to sleep. Midnight came just as the movie was finished and of course I reminded the boyfriend it was my birthday and that I should be allowed to open my presents now and not have to wait until the morning, he didn't agree with this at first but caved in. I'm such a kid when it comes to birthdays.
I let out a little squeal when I saw the Tiffany and Co bag - who doesn't love T&C on their bday.
Each layer I removed I stopped to take a photo, the boyfriend was getting impatient hahah.
He brought me a gorgeous necklace with the letter H.
I love it and it's such a perfect birthday present.
The best part about birthdays is hearing from friends, family and just generally feeling loved!
My work buddies spoilt me. We went out for an extended lunch to Left Bank and enjoyed a glass of wine and then just after we got back to the office a gorgeous bunch of flowers landed on my desk.
Followed by cupcakes from the cupcake bakery - Red Velvet... Mm mm
Turning 24 was great and thank you all so much for the birthday love on Instagram each time I got a little notification it made me smile. You guys rock.
The only down side to my birthday was I was struck down with that horrible cold/flu that is lurking Melbourne I felt really bad on Monday and had my fingers crossed that it would be gone by Thursday sadly not!
My birthday celebrations didn't stop there - On Friday my MD at work was back in the office and felt bad for missing my birthday (Ha!) So he took us out for lunch to continue my turning of age. We all waddled up to Merrywell for lunch - This was not a good idea. Food overload.
I had planned to go out for dinner with the boyfriend on Friday night just the two of us to celebrate but I pyked on my own plans as I just wasn't feeling well, I was all snotty, couldn't breathe and had a headache like you wouldn't believe. Worst ha? So we ordered in Thai food and watched a movie under the blankets.
Saturday we had tickets go to the Dream Time game at the MCG. Essendon Vs Richmond.
Knowing I was still sick I made sure that I rugged up. I wore skins underneath my jeans ha! Paired with my leather jacket and with the usual bombers scarf and boots.
We went to Meat and Wine Co before the game for dinner. The boyfriend ordered the Onion Rings but I thought wasn't great until they arrived at the table. Those things are amazing.
I can never fault the food at the Meat and Wine Co. I do think I prefer squires Loft - Agree/Disagree?
We had ground seat tickets but towards the back so we were abit worried that we (I) wouldn't able to see anything as it was almost a sell out match lucky we striked luck and I didn't get any one tall sitting in front of me. The game went to plan and we won. Go Bombers!
