Oh my, seriously where has the time gone?! It’s still hard to fathom that another year has gone by and that it’s that time of the year again…my birthday. I’m still in my 20s but I just refuse to get any older, so today I’m turning another year younger ;)
Last year, I made my own birthday cupcakes, truffle brownie cupcakes with cookie dough frosting. They were the most decadent and rich cupcakes I’ve ever made. I now call them my guilty pleasure cupcake…I mean brownie and cookie dough together, match made in heaven! Check out the recipe here!
Over the weekend, we had my pre-bday celebrations! We kicked the weekend with date night Friday! Sushi and beer, our favorite!
The next day, we started the day early and enjoyed doughnuts from our National Doughnut Day swap :)
We spent the day with his family, napped, and had Porto’s for dinner!! We bbq’ed and I found a new way to enjoy a hot dog :)
Every time we visit his family, I try to sneak in a trip to Porto’s. I believe Porto’s is a Southern California/LA chain; it’s a Latin American cafe and bakery. Their food is yummy!
I tried the guava smoothie for the first time and it has now become my favorite drink! It is so refreshing! Definitely a must get if you ever get to venture to Porto’s :)
The rest of the weekend was spent lounging and relaxing :)
Anyhoo, I can’t wait for the week to come to an end and the weekend to start! I’m looking forward to my post-day bday celebrations with my mister!!
Hope your week is going well and wishing you a beautiful day!
