Hello to all of you lovely ladies!
I’m sorry that I am posting this late in the week! Anthony and I decided to take Wednesday off from all work (including blogging) since it was my birthday. So, I’m back today to cover my…birthday, haha!
SO, in case you didn’t see on any of my social media accounts, Wednesday was my 21st Birthday! I didn’t really party as much as just hang out with the hubz and my family. I’ve been quite tired as you’ve probably already knew and are tired of hearing about…whoops. I really just wanted to rest up and relax and eat my butt off! But, I did vlog for you guys and Anthony actually took most of these pictures!!
Looking at my birthday, it truly was unforgettable. We didn’t party or do something too terribly exciting but just being able to spend time with everyone was truly amazing and memorable to me. So, what did Anthony and I do? Well, let us start when I woke up…
Surprisingly enough, I did sleep in on my birthday! I was so thankful to get the day off since Anthony took the day off from work as well. I ended up sleeping an extra 4 hours! That is relatively rare in my opinion. I woke up around 8:30-8:45am and got ready and what not. I actually wanted to dress super comfy since it was supposed to be a relaxing day.
Anthony actually got us matching outfits for the day! It included Diamond Supply Co. t-shirts and the Nike SB Tiffany Hi-Tops. I was so happy and comfortable. We looked adorable and It really did make me feel super special. It was a tad chilly, so I did wear a black cardigan and jeggings!
Anyways, we decided to take a trip up to Annandale! I have been craving Korean food and I needed to do some shopping…plus, Anthony had never been up until Wednesday, so I was excited to show him the one place I frequent!
We ended up going by Shilla’s Bakery and Lil’ Thingamajigs for pastries and stationary goodies! I would have posted them as a mini-haul, but because Anthony actually purchased them, they are now regarded as gifts! So, no birthday haul this time. (But Thank You Hubby!) After Lil’ Thingamajigs, I looked over at the rest of the shopping center and realized that THERE’S A FREAKIN’ THE FACE SHOP IN ANNANDALE. Now, if you don’t know what The Face Shop is…it’s a Korean cosmetic store and I knew that had some in California, but I never expected to see one in Virginia. Apparently, they are relatively new! So, I went in and bought a few face masks and skin care products. I was in heaven…oh lord.
Afterwards, we headed over to Yechon for lunch and then Breeze Bakery to pick up my ADORABLE birthday cake. I had decided on their Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream! It looked light and fluffy and delicious…plus I hate buttercream and fondant. Turns out, the cake was the best decision of the day! It was everything I dreamed off and more.
After Annandale, we headed back to the house to take a quick nap before meeting my parents in Fredericksburg for dinner. That nap was entirely necessary! We were pooped and full of food already…whoops. We then headed over to Fujiya House in F’burg for dinner and my sister had balloons over my chair and my parents had the staff take the cake in the back to be chilled and brought out when ready. The dinner was great and the staff was AWESOME. Our chef actually gave me a Kpop CD because I knew a lot of the songs playing in the restaurant and turns out the CD has a few “Frozen” songs on it too! (I was meant to have the CD, I swear.) The staff was also surprised that the cake came from a Korean bakery up north. They were super kind and lovely people!
Moving on, my parents and sister ended up getting me a really adorable picture frame with pictures inside of all of us! I may have teared up a little… Actually, I just want to thank my family and Anthony for making my birthday so special and amazing and unforgettable. Thank you to everyone who sent their birthday wishes via social media and texts, phone calls, face time, and all those other crazy ways!! I truly feel so blessed and loved! You all are AWESOME!!
So, that pretty much sums up my 21st birthday! No drinks over here. But lots of eating and lots of fun!! Thank you all so much again for all of your love and support through the second birthday I’ve shared with you all here on Simply Taylor Rae! I can’t wait to share my 22nd birthday and all the other ones after with you all. Let me know what you thought of the video or if you have any future post suggestions in the comments below! I’d love to read what you all think!
With that said, that is it for today’s post! I may do another post tonight since I did take a couple days off. I do have to get ready for work unfortunately, but it gives me time to come up with a post idea! Anyways, have a great weekend everyone! Remember to stay safe and have a blast and also to be thankful and grateful for another day and another year!
