Don't Be Tardy for the Birthday Party!

So I turned 24 on the 18th. Weird. A few months ago I had a conversation with Stephan about it that went a little something like this:

Me: So I'm having a hard time with the turning 24 thing...
Stephan: Why?

Me: It's just starting to sound old...even Lady Gaga is younger than me!

Stephan: What does Lady Gaga have to do with it???

I worked on my birthday (because adults asking off work for their birthday seems silly to me) and then Stephan took me for a romantic dinner at The Boheme and the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Downtown Orlando. The hotel and restaurant are both fabulously glamorous!

The Boheme had a pianist and singer and, my fave part...light up menus!!! The pics just don't do them justice!!! We had yummy bread, fried green tomatoes, salmon with mac and cheese and lamb with green beans. They were nice enough to give us a slice of cheesecake for my birthday as well!!! Loves it!

I was even more impressed to learn that Stephan had actually planned it two weeks earlier even going as far as calling my best friend Kim for advice. He still owes me a trip to the movies to see the new Hugh Grant movie (when we actually have time!!!)

I also got wonderful gifts from my mom and Bff Kim who came for shopping and birthday fun. Kim even made me my fave red velvet cupcakes. Too sweet!

I also looked up some celebs that have the same birthday as me:
Brad Pitt
Katie Holmes
Christina Aquilera
Steven Spielberg
Keith Richards
Betty Grable
and last but not least Joseph Stalin??? If you can call him a celebrity...

Thanks for all the birthday love I got via Facebook or by text!

My gift from Kim (Z Gallerie lovelies)! Had to show the custom tag!

Coulda, shoulda, woulda used some Spanx!

Do you ever look at your husband and see a little man-boy? This is one of those moments.

What should I order off my light up menu???

Fried Green Tomatoes with goat cheese??? Yes, please.

Me on the lounge singer "Here's hoping she skats!"


  1. I love that you share your birthday with Christina Aguilera and Brad Pitt! Yummy!!!

  2. I love that place! that's where Matt took me the sunday night before he proposed..i thought he was gonna propose there, i should've known better. but the light up menus were definitely a hit with us that night.

  3. The Boheme is such a great restaurant! Glad that you had fun!
