I woke up on the morning of my birthday to the sweetest surprise from Brady. He was already gone for the day, and wouldn't be home until 11 or so that night. Unfortunately, he had a big final the next day and needed every minute to study. Knowing he wouldn't be around, I decided to work all day. He knew I had a long day ahead of me and this was the best way to wake up. I'm a seriously lucky girl. 

My sweet friend Mari put on the best birthday dinner for me. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, Rosa Mexicana. Since I was on whole 30, she made me the most amazing watermelon cake and had Lara bar part favors for everyone. How did I get so lucky? I have the best friends out here and I feel so grateful for them every single day. 

Isn't it so cute?! Delicious too. We ate the whole thing. 

I love them!! 

It was such a great birthday, and one I'll never forget. I spent the day working and the evening with the Todd's, who were so sweet and made me a dinner. I'm so grateful for friends who feel like family and who make this city home for me.
