  • Sinful Colors nail polish in Vela
  • Sinful Colors nail polish in Deep Blue Ocean
That's a lot more than I thought I got myself lol!

More pictures and details after the jump!
I didn't have anything really special planned for my birthday since I had class that night (and when you're paying $1,163 a class, skipping it isn't much of an option. Besides, I love my class and we're too broke to do anything this year anyway).

Husband cut his hair and shaved and he was ready at 10AM! He's never ready that early! I wasn't even awake at 10AM! Aww, what a cutie!

My mom gave me my gift the night before, I didn't open it til I got home.

She was adorable! She screamed "Happy Birthday!" when I got out of the shower. She was an hour early. And she was really excited about it too, aww ma!

I wrote her a thank you letter before I left for the day. Just a little thank you for everything she's done for me. It is my birthday, but I think parents need to be reminded that we're thankful for the things they do for us. And I mentioned how I realize how hard it must had been for her to raise me when I was younger since I was such a spoiled brat!

We went to Cheesecake Factory for my birthday lunch.

I had the Factory Chopped Salad and the Fried Mac N' Cheese. And of course their delicious Strawberry Lemonade! I didn't have room for a cheesecake but my husband asked if they gave anything free for your birthday and our waitress came back with this and of course, a song!

For a small cup, this was  a lot! It was a mini glass with hot fudge and inside it was vanilla ice cream and as you can see, whipped cream and sprinkles. It was good! 

However, after eating lunch... husband and I felt sick. It's weird how when you start eating healthy and when you eat something unhealthy, you feel sick. Seriously, my stomach was crying out for help!

We went to class and husband was walking in front of me, he peeked into our class and gasped and I was like "uh what?" and opened the door and I saw this at my seat!

The other married couple in the class had put down flowers, a card and balloons at my seat! And of course the cupcakes I ordered from Kai. I was totally surprised! The flowers are beautiful! They're the most colorful flowers I've ever seen!

I LOVE them!! I couldn't stop staring at them! And the balloon they got me had Micky Mouse on it (which is ironic cause I was wearing my Micky Mouse hoodie too lol). It was really really sweet of them, seriously, I was so touched :)

Kai's delicious cupcakes! Almond Vanilla with Chocolate Ganache and Chocolate/Vanilla buttercream! It was really good and super moist!

Had a great day in class and the teacher praised me for my homework answers being worded perfect =) that made me feel good, since I was rushing through the assignment and I was irritated when I was trying to finish it. 

After class, we went back to my house cause my parents bought some of my favorite food for dinner. Which is good cause we didn't have money to buy dinner lol.

My birthday gifts!

From Mom:
  • Musical Hello Kitty jewelry box!
From Husband:
  • Nobody's Princess by Esther M. Friesner
  • Sickened by Julie Gregory
  • Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino 
  • Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
From Mother in Law:
  • Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol 1 by Stephenie Meyer & Young Kim
  • Beauty Insider gift (which is awesome this year)
  • Philosophy perfume in Falling In Love

Yup! My husband got me books. He know's I've been on a book buying/reading spree lately and he said he'd rather buy me books than anything else anyway. So he got me a $25 Amazon gift card (since he knows its the only place I like buying books from) and had me pick books I wanted then wrapped him all himself (or rather had my sister in law do it for him lol). My Mother in Law surprised me with the gift she got me! My first graphic novel! I'm super excited about it! Last year she made me a beautiful dream catcher (I love dream catchers but I don't think she knew that lol). My ma's gift surprised me too! That thing is heavy! Can't wait to use it =)

So yep! That was my 25th birthday! I wasn't expecting anything and I ended up having a perfect day =).

    OoOo would you be up to doing an NYX pigment swatch later on? I'd love to see how it is. I've been wanting to but some to (maybe) press into my new empty palettes. :D
