28th Birthday Celebrations

Happy Friday! And a very special Happy Birthday to my Mom! She’s an amazing lady! I was her early birthday present 28 years ago, isn’t she lucky?

Birthday Celebrations

In case the internet hasn’t already told you, yesterday was my birthday! We celebrated on Wednesday and we celebrated more yesterday. I plan on extending my birthday celebrations for a solid month. Not annoying for everyone around me at all, right?

Evan and I pedaled to work yesterday. Even though we were tired from all the biking on Wednesday, it was a glorious way to start my birthday!

I didn’t have anything at work for lunch and it was my birthday and I love pizza and Wazee Supper Club is across the street from my office and I ate a whole pizza for lunch. It was amazing! Their bianca pizza (white pizza or garlic pizza) is excellent.


I skipped out of work a wee-bit early and headed to a new CorePower yoga studio that opened and enjoyed a class with only one other person in it for free because it was my birthday. I was a sweaty, hot mess by the end of class. It was a beginner class, but it provided some much-needed relaxation and detox.

My parents scooped Evan and I up and we headed to a combined birthday dinner for my Mom and I. She hadn’t ever had Vietnamese or Pho, so that’s what we had.

We went to Pho on 6th, which I have never been too. It was the nicest Pho restaurant I have ever been in, very nice decor, seating, and great atmosphere.

The four of us started with three appetizers: coconut shrimp, Vietnamese egg rolls, and steamed BBQ pork buns. They were all excellent and the sauces were outstanding.


Pho was the dish of choice. We each ordered a little something different, but all got the veggies which in my opinion is a must. I had Central Pho (the spicy version) with shredded chicken and veggies. It was hot, fresh, the veggies were crisp, the broth was light, and the flavor was excellent. None of us finished our gigantic portions.


With very full bellies, we headed back to my parent’s house for dessert! Carrot Cake. Mom made the cake, Dad decorated. It was moist and flavorful. I wanted to eat more, I just didn’t have the room.


I thoroughly enjoyed the low-key birthday celebrations and sharing my birthday with my Mom!
