Yes I'm 25! My Birthday Recap!

Good morning Journeyers!
WOW I cannot believe after counting down the days to my birthday it's all over. That makes me sad, very very sad. But now I can just start counting down the days to the next one. I love birthdays.
I turned 25, a quarter of a century! Yay! But to be honest, I am a bit very worried, because I still have so much that I want to do and achieve! I still need to figure out what I want to do with my life! I'm a person that needs challenges in my life, and if something is not challenging enough I lose interest. That's probably why I love blogging so much.

For my birthday I decided to give back a bit. South Africans love doing the whole "Bring and Braai" thing. Well that is because life has become so expensive and you just cannot afford to always cater for everyone, so I decided to "cook" for all my friends. Cedric made some mouthwatering chicken and rump on the braai and I made a big green salad and chilli linguine with spinach and feta. My friend actually asked me why I don't share these interesting ways of cooking on my blog with everyone. Let me know if you guys would be interested in something like that? hehe

I had such a wonderful, magnificent, brilliant, fun evening! Spending my birthday with all the people I love! That's what makes life great, being with people that you love and that makes you happy!
If I had to share all the photos with you this Post will make the World Record Books for longest Post in the history of mankind. So here's a roundup of my favourites of the evening!

Bwahahaha! Classic!

We spent the evening taking silly photos, laughing (my abs were on fire the Sunday), drinking, eating and laughing some more. What more could one ask for?! And after eating one too many of the cupcakes below, we were ready to see the sun rise. Well not really. We made it to 3am!

This birthday was one for the books, my special memory book. I loved it and had so much fun. Thank you very much to each and every one of my friends that came. You guys are my specials! And to the ones that could not make it, I know you were there, in spirit and in my heart. You guys make me who I am today. Special! haha
And to the most important person of all - Baby Boo, Cedric, baby thank you for everything you do for me. Sometimes I don't show it enough and throw myself into blogging, but just know that you will always be my NR. 1! You make me feel like a princess every single day. I am very blessed to have you and all my family and friends in my life!

Thank you again to everyone, for your birthday messages, and even to all the bloggers that wished me well on twitter and my blog! You guys are extra special additions to my life and my blog! My little blog family! I really am too blessed to be stressed! So here's to a year filled with fun, laughter and happiness. No tears and if there are tears may they be from all the laughter and joy that my life is filled with! 

Have a blessed day Journeyers!
