Early Celebrations

So my birthday is in two weeks (Holy Cow! I'm going to be 27!) but because of busy schedules we had to choose between celebrating with my parents 2 weeks early or 2 weeks after.
So I think for the first time in my life I celebrated my birthday before it was actually my birthday!My mom made a delicious dinner of chicken fried rice, sweet and sour pork and crab & cream cheese wantons. YUM!
Doesn't that look delicious?!?!?!

It was a pretty low-key evening. Just dinner and hanging out with the fam. What more could you ask for though?! A few weeks ago my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday and without hesitation I said "A massage!" So my family got me a gift certificate for a pregnancy massage and a pedicure! I am so excited! Eric is going out of town for his friends wedding in 3 weeks and it sounds like the perfect time to pamper myself!! I can't wait!! And Eric let me go shopping as an early birthday present so I could get some new shirts! Yay!!

My birthday would not be complete without Death by Chocolate (which is just a chocolate trifle made with brownies and pudding!) I think that it has been my dessert of choice for like the last 10 years! Why change something that is perfect?!?

Yup! I am really excited and of course, I was not disapointed!!


  1. I think it's awesome that you knew exactly what you wanted for your birthday! You look great and I am very excited to come and see you. Have a great birthday!

  2. Happy early birthday! And oh my goodness, that dessert looks absolutely amazing!! Yum!! I may have to treat myself to something like that this week.

  3. I want your mom's cooking!!!!!
