24 Til’ 24

So… I’m turning 24 in exactly 24 hours! I can’t believe it. I’ve learned so much this past year. I’ve some how grown to feel comfortable with myself/ in my own skin. I think it has something to do with motherhood and realizing that I can’t control every situation and everything that happens. I’ve become a go with the flow kind of gal… somewhat. The small things make me happy now. A baby giggle, a smile, a hug, dinner(while watching our favorite show during Riley’s nap time) and  prayer with my husband. Those are the things that truly bring joy into my life at this point. I’ve had to change my career path over the past couple of years. I am completely at peace with that decision and feel like i’ve found my way now through a lot of prayer and a lot of living in the moment and enjoying what God has placed in front of me. At this point being able to cherish the priceless moments with my little family is the best birthday gift I could ask for and I am so grateful that I get to do that. It’s going to be interesting to see what 24 has in store for me. I’m ready for ya so BRING IT ON!

We celebrated a a little early since Stephen has a game on my actual birthday. We went to my favorite restaurant… wait for it… OSHA THAI on 2nd street in San Francisco. I love that place. We definitely over ate and I have no problems with that. We had bacon wrapped scallops, crispy calamari and ahi tuna for appetizers. For dinner we had Kurobuta pork belly, crab fried rice and a land and sea mix of sea bass and filet! Oh and sangria to drink!!! Needless to say after all of that I was stuffed (and still am). I ALWAYS have room for dessert though. I actually look at the dessert menu before the actual dinner menu (anybody else do that?!). I had a chocolate soufflé with thai tea ice cream for dessert. I ate it so fast that I forgot to take a picture! I want to thank my husband for making me a happy lady and taking me to my favorite restaurant tonight, and also to Riley for sleeping through the whole meal! I’ve attached a couple of iPhone photos from the evening. Enjoy!

  2. Happy birthday. Hope you enjoy your birthday with your beautiful family. Are you going to the game tommorow. If you are I am

  3. Have you tried the OSHA on Geary and Leavenworth? It’s in the land of the crackheads, so beware… But that OSHA Thai in my opinion is the best! It’s more down and dirty than the rest.
