I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am 26 years old. I’ve really been struggling to come to terms with it because I feel like after I turned 21 the years just flew by. But anyways I Miriam have now come to terms and have learned to embrace this beautiful number 》26《 I’ll get into why in a little bit. Let’s get into how my birthday weekend started
At around 2 or 3 in the afternoon I got a text message from my sister saying we should go out to Gloria’s and have some drinks. I told her I would think about it because I knew I had school stuff to do. If you guys follow me on Instagram y’all know she peer pressured me to go. But I’m glad I did, I got to spend some quality time with both of my sisters and cousin. The night was full of laughs, good food and great conversations. I didn’t get any pictures other than my surprise birthday flan. I was that embarrassed girl getting happy birthday sung to her. But none the less it was a wonderful night with wonderful people.
Saturday (my birthday)
T cooked a breakfast for the kids and I which was delicious as always. I cleaned a little and got ready to go to my moms house. We went to the mall to look for my brunch outfit for the following morning. It didn’t take long to find the perfect top. I didn’t want anything to over the top wanted something simple and cute. Once I found it we walked around for few minutes before heading down to Mi Cocina, one of my favorite Tex-Mex restaurants.
After our lunch we went to the nail salon to get manis and pedis and after that I went home
Belated Birthday Brunch! This is the day I was looking forward to the most because I wanted to spend it with people I love. I had my brunch at Ida Claire which was beautiful it has like an indie kini and carefree vibe to it and our server Ryan was awesome.
The food was great to say I was full by the end of our brunch is an understatement. My mom didn’t even finish her plate because they gave her enough for two people. I finished my plate, the ham so easy to cut and omg the biscuits were just to die for. Seriously if you’re in Dallas visit Ida Claire.
After our brunch we went outside to the patio and had a mini photoshoot. They have this mobile home outside which was closed but I’ve seen pictures of the inside and it’s so pretty. Kind of bumbed it wasn’t opened but it was pretty cold outside so it was understandable.
My mom and i
Sister and I, we obliviously have great taste in clothes because we both have the same skirt just different colors lol
My little family
To sum everything up my birthday was pretty low key and food was the focus. I ate a lot y’all, a freaking lot. But I’m i wouldnt have it any other way, I didn’t want to go out partying because I, not much of a partier. I like to be surrounded by people I love and just spend quality time. So this was perfect for me.
Even tough i was on age about turning 26 I have learned to embrace it. I’ve always been too focus on my age and like I said after turning 21 everything just flew by. Ive seen and experience a lot in my 26 years of life. I have learned a lot and have grown so much. I have accomplished stuff I thought we’re going to be my biggest failure. I took a few risk here and there. I stop caring about a lot of stuff that made my world go round and round and that I thought I couldn’t do withou out. I have learned to focus on things that are good for me. I have learned to make Miriam happy. I have learned how to be by myself and actually be okay with it. I have learned how to let go and let God. I’ve gotten closer to God. I have learned to speak up. I learned how to love and forgive. To say that I’m not grateful for turning 26 would be like me saying I’m not grateful for all the experiences I have experienced. I of course learned a few other things but that would make this post longer than the last one (giggles)
So here’s to making this year the best it can possibly be. Let this be another year of life full of blessings…Let 26 be the new 21
Thank you for all the birthday wishes on twitter, Instagram, Facebook and text mesages.
Until next time
