OMG! I don’t even know where to begin because this was one of the most memorable birthdays that went down in herstory. Last year it was a very unique birthday because it was low key and I spent it with my BFF. This year though, I had the blessing to meet Nestor just a week ago today and he treated me for my birthday in the most incredible way, I felt so special.
He got me Godiva chocolates and a perfume. Wow.
I did a smokey eye (my fave) and a nude lip. Highlight and bronzer on fleek courtesy of Tarte Cosmetics (MakeupShayla contour palette). Wore my favorite dress as of late and some nude heels. Kylie LipKit liner in Koko K and Reign Matte Lipstick. I thought about wearing my hair extensions, but my hair is already getting super long so I 86’d it.
The birthday dinner was at Pappadeaux and it was so delicious! When it came to ordering our food, he actually ordered mine for me. I was a little taken aback like WTF? I can order my own damn food! was my initial thought and then I thought, Wait a minute!! He’s being sweet! Oh my God, I’m such an asshole. That’s so weird that he did that, but it just shows how much of a gentleman he is. Wow, it’s amazing how when we’re mistreated for so long we don’t realize a good thing as it’s happening. It makes me a little sad because I feel like a rescue puppy finally finding a good home, LOL.
We were so stuffed by the end that we had no room for my birthday dessert, so I took it home.
I got a good man you guys! He seriously blows me away and I keep pushing and resisting certain things he does because I have my guard up. I’m annoying myself but I guess it’s only normal. For instance, he took this picture of me below….
….and then showed me that he saved it as his wallpaper on his phone. I was shocked and totally reacted as if my face was on billboard on Times Square.. like somehow I just felt exposed. So I immediately told him, “Oh, don’t do that!” and he was like “Uh okay then I won’t”, then I felt bad because my mind is thinking he’s being sweet, learn to accept that he’s into you and get your head out of your ass. So then I retracted what I said and explained that I wasn’t expecting him to do that but that it’s a sweet gesture and to go on with his bad self putting my pic on his wallpaper.
I didn’t say it in those exact words but for blog’s sake, just go with it.
Now onto the food porn-
I love this picture as well as the first one I posted above. We will make some fine babies one day! haha. I kid. Everyone keeps saying how cute we look together and I agree! I know I’m biased but whatevs.
BTW, I ended up getting off work early which was nice because I needed to do a quick load of laundry. Then it gave me enough time to do my makeup all dramatic cuz that takes time, let’s be real.
We’re going to the Mavs game tonight VIP treatment, blue carpet rolled out for us, a Bud Light party before the game and seating inside a suite with catered food and drinks. Hopefully we will make it in time if my work lets me get off early, if not at least we’ll still be at the game enjoying each other’s company. I told him I don’t care what we do, as long as we’re together that’s what matters. He loves that and that makes me smile.. He’s the one I was waiting for and I’m the one he was waiting for too.
