I had the opportunity to celebrate my birthday on Sunday, November 17, 2013. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I had a dull birthday. From my 30th birthday party at Pazo Lounge to the year we had champagne and cake with friends, my birthday has been a day to remember for a long time. So this year was no exception and we charged into the day with full force!
Everyone knows that I love a good brunch and since my special day was on Sunday, having a delicious brunch was the perfect start to my day. We ate at Miss Shirly’s Cafe because this is my favorite brunch spot in the Inner Harbor. The menu at Miss Shirly’s has a southern flair and has become a new tradition in our family (we also eat there on Christmas Eve.) I ordered a “Miss Mimosa” to drink along with a Maryland Omelet and Apple – Smoked Bacon on the side.

From there we left Miss Shirly’s Cafe and I decided to face my fear of needles by getting a butterfly tattoo on my upper back. I wanted something attractive that will show off my shoulders during the summer months. We decided to have it done at The Baltimore Tattoo Museum which is a very artistic, cool place. I channeled my inner strength and survived my first (and last) tattoo. I will share photos once the “butterfly” has healed.

After laughing and exchanging stories, the adventure continued with us having Margarita’s at a local Mexican restaurant. I love Mexican cuisine, so it was the perfect place to grab a quick dinner.
The evening ended with us watching The Best Man Holiday which is one of our favorite movies (amongst our friends.) We have watched the first movie a million times, so we were very excited to view the sequel. The Best Man Holiday delivered everything that I had anticipated! The plot was rich with drama, characters reminded me of old friends, and the setting was absolutely beautiful.
Honestly, I’ve had really great birthday celebrations but this year was EPIC! I can’t imagine what we will do next year…maybe ride a motorcycle across the country or something!
