Guess what this past Saturday was?

My 24th birthday!

If I could sum up my birthday weekend, I would say it was full of friends and family and definitely a sweet one!  Lots of yummy treats and fun and loving people to be around.

Friday night, Brian and I kicked off a great weekend with friends by heading out to dinner at a local Thai restaurant called Siam Square.  siam squareThe restaurant was brightly colored on the inside and full of chatty and happy people.  It  had a relaxed, welcoming, and fun atmosphere that would be perfect for any occasion.

We enjoyed dinner with our friends, Alex and Joy.

Everyone ordered the drunken noodles, which were delicious (I snuck a bit of Brian’s!) and I ordered the mixed veggie stir fry with tofu. This was also delicious and just the right amount of food.

Not to worry though, after the live band started, and a couple of drinks 😉 we were all having a great time learning the Rock Step.

Family Birthday Celebration

The birthday celebration continued into Sunday morning, where Brian and I headed over to my sister’s apartment for a delicious breakfast.  When we walked in the door Mom and Brenna were hard at work in the kitchen.
