I started off with a dinner celebration with one of my best friends - Ashley Gail :) She even brought me a delicious cupcake from Gigi's! It was so great to be able to catch up in person for a few hours!

The celebrations continued the next day with my family. I put in a special request for Rolling Pin cake - it is THE best!! We had a fun night. It was special to have Brinley around this year. I just loved getting a card addressed to Aunt Andrea :) She is the sweetest little girl.
|LOVE this yummy cake :)|
|So fun having her around :)|
|Just because she's so cute!! Love her!!|
|Tapas for lunch at Sangria 46|
|Carvel...so good on a hot July afternoon :)|
|We took a peddle cart ride through Central Park - so fun!!|
|Dinner at my favorite Italian spot in Hell's Kitchen - 44 SW|
|it wouldn't be a birthday with out cake, right? :)|
|Yummy strawberry cupcakes :)|
|Finally getting a chance to blow out some candles :)|
That has to be it, right? Nope. There's more!! I told you I love celebrating :) My friend, Mary, and I had a tradition of seeing a show for our birthdays (they both fall in July!) for a few years prior to her being away in Paris last year so we picked that back up by going to see War Horse this year. We even scored $30 tickets through the LincTix program. The show was excellent. We all really enjoyed it. The horse puppets were absolutely incredible!! Such skillful and talented individuals! Definitely a worthwhile show to see!

Finally, I rounded out the birthday celebrations with my friend, Reba, one week after the day itself with more yummy cupcakes from Molly's and some Olympics watching. Fun, fun :)
Thanks to everyone who made my 29th birthday such an exciting adventure :) Looking forward to all this year has to bring! Also, please note the new 30 before 30 page that I added to the blog. I'll be sure to keep you updated on the progress with all of those items throughout the year!
