Thriving In Our 20’s

4 Jan

Today is a very special day. Today we turn 20! We love birthday celebrations, and have a fun filled day ahead of us. Here is an inside look at some of the things we have planned!

Breakfast: Of course we are starting out our birthday with our three favorite things!

1. Aveda Tea: Our mom took a work trip to Boston a few months back and suprised us with a loose leaf tea pot and some Aveda tea! If you have not tried this tea yet you’re definitely missing out! It is a tad pricey but definitely worth every penny.

2. Oatmeal: It’s rare that a day goes by without some kind of oats in our diet. We are a tad bit oat obsessed… oh well!


3. Egg white bake: Last summer we became obsessed with Eat Yourself Skinny’s spinach and egg white omelet. Paired with a side of oatmeal it is the perfect breakfast to keep us full.

Morning Activities:

1. The first part is kind of a surprise.. but has to do with our hair. But no worries we promise, we will share the end results with you.

2. Shopping!

3. Lunch Date to get sushi. How good does this roll sound.. Tuna & Salmon topped with strawberries! Our mom has never had sushi before so we are mega excited to have her try it for the first time. We found a place that offers great lunch specials and an interesting menu filled with their own creative sushi combinations. We have just started trying raw sushi and so far we have love every roll we’ve tired!

Afternoon and Evening Activities:

1. More shopping… 🙂

2. We decided for our family birthday dinner we wanted to try and find something new and exciting to make. We would much rather have a family dinner at home instead of going out to eat. This way we still get to engage in our favorite activity of cooking, try something new, and share it with some of the people we love the most!

So basically our day will be filled with shopping, eating, cooking, sipping on wine, enjoying life, and celebrating our birthday! We really think today is going to be a perfect 20th birthday celebration. We hope you all have just as much of a fabulous day as we know we will! 🙂
