My sister, Melissa, had her 24th birthday this past week! The day was going to be just us, and I planned a whole itinerary with things for the two of us to do on her special day. I’ve been worried that with my health problems I wouldn’t be able to properly celebrate with her and do everything, but luckily the entire day went without a hitch and couldn’t have gone better!
After letting her sleep in a bit (because that’s what you do on your birthday!), we went to Denny’s! You get a free Gland Slam Breakfast on your birthday so it’s become a bit of a tradition to start our birthdays off there. We also got the bacon cheddar tots which were delish!
Afterwards, we were ready for our spa appointment! I found this great place called Anatara on Yelp that had a great “couples massage” deal! We opted for a hot stone massage – something neither of us had ever had before and it was SO nice and relaxing!
Next up, was a manicure and pedicure at this SUPER cute nail salon called Polish Lounge. They had soooo many nail polishes! Melissa eventually chose two OPI colors that were very spring-y. I opted out of doing my own nails and instead walked over to nearby Starbucks and brought us both back our signature drinks (hers – an Iced Passion Tea Lemonade Sweetened, mine – a Butterbeer Frappacino) and two birthday cake pops. After Melissa had been thoroughly pamperred, we went home to get dressed for the evening and FaceTime our dad.
For dinner, we went to Umami Burger and had our usual – the Truffle Burger and sweet potato fries. Our server, Marvin, was super cool and had a dessert (a deep fried ice cream sandwich called the “UFO”) brought out for us upon learning it was my sister’s birthday. This was something neither of us expected and was an awesome surprise. Also, SO yummy! Even after being filled with our burger, we devoured the whole thing!
We ended the day going to Mosaic, her church, for their Midweek service where we bumped into our friends Chelsea and Sammy. The message was simple but uplifting and a great way to end the day 🙂
How do you and your siblings celebrate each other’s birthdays?
