Officially 27 years old at Glen Ivy!

.

I officially turned 27 years old on Monday. EEK! I can't believe I am almost 30. It seems like yesterday when I was dying to be 18 or 21 years old to do the "cool things". My dad called me to greet me and gave me the "So when are you getting married/having kids" talk, yada, yada, yada. "Only if it's Edward Cullen dad" Haha. The BF's mom gave me the same talk too! Getting married and having a family isn't happening anytime soon, LOL. I am too busy having fun and enjoying life, not to say that marriage and kids don't enhance that aspect because I DO want to be a mom and a wife eventually, but its fun to have these years to find new things about yourself, learn new things. For instance, I NEVER liked avocados or guacamole, and only recently I have taken a liking to them, to the point where I actually bought a couple of avocados at the grocery, cut them open, sprinkled some black pepper, lemon and lime, and a pinch of salt- and ate it as is. And it was delicious!

So turning 27 has this placebo effect on me where it's this sense of new beginnings in my life, look towards the positive, and just go out there and do something that is so outside yourself; outside your realm of habit and comfort.



One thing I love when it's your birthday- are all the cool discounts and free things you get from random places; like Baskin Robbins (you get a free scoop of ice cream), Sephora, and you get in free to Disneyland! Even though the original plan was to spend my bday at Disneyland, the BF decided I could use a day at the spa instead which sounded A LOT better than Disneyland since I was dying for a massage. And because it was my bday I got in for FREE!

We didn't do the mud bath even though I was so tempted to, just because I didn't want to get dirty and deal with having to rinse that all off, so we stuck to the mineral baths, the pools, etc. Just enjoying the sun and getting a little color. Then we did a couple's Swedish massage which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Seriously if you are looking for a great gift to give someone or to yourself, definitely go to a spa and get a massage! I did not want to leave!

The BF was just incredibly sweet, he got me a pink iPod nano to replace my really old one only held like 120 songs, so I am glad the new one can hold way more than that so I don't have to delete songs! And we had dinner at one of our "spots"- Red Lobster. Then dinner with a few friends on Sunday so it should be fun before the crazy schedule really begins.

Sadly I went back to work yesterday missing the spa terribly, and my co-worker Diana (who is seriously great at baking and making the best desserts) made me a chocolate raspberry cake with chocolate mousse frosting! It was sooooooo yummy I had to break my diet for it! LOL. And of course Edward was there too to help me enjoy my cake!

Happy 27th Birthday! Looks and sounds like you had fun :)

I agree with getting older though, it is a new beginning and there is so much out there to do before you want to start a family, so you could share your experiences WITH your children... I'm waiting till my later 20's or early 30s to have children... :)

Jenn said...

Happy Birthday Vanessa!! Sounds like you had a great day with the boyfriend! :D

#ChRiS# said...

I'm same age with you... Passed my birthday in January, definately can feel the aging process..haizz...:(

Citrine said...

I think late 20s and early 30s are still pretty young (at least I thoughts my mom was prettiest at that age when I flip through old photos...)


Rnadomly, my grandma gave me that "marriage/kid" talk a few months before my 18th birthday...talking about way ahead of time...

Shopn'Chomp said...

Happy B-day! :) I've always wanted to go here. Hopefully some day!

Tina said...

Aww happy belated birthday! I'm glad you had a great time at the spa and that cake looks delicious!

FabDiva20 said...

Happy 27th birthday Vanessa! You do not look like your 27 years old. You look like your my age 21.

Janelle said...

Belated Happy Birthday, Vanessa!! It looks like you had an amazing birthday. I'm in desperate need of a spa day too! A massage sounds perfect right now. ;)

I totally agree with you about the marriage thing. I'm not planning to get married & have kids til I'm in my 30s. Everyone around me is saying that's too old... but right now I think I'm too young! I, too, am still learning about myself & I just want to enjoy life the way it is. I love your way of thinking, hun!

Tammy said...

awww.so sweet!! Happy Belated Birthday!

Happy early b-day; it's my b-day today. I hate getting old, but I don't think of it as getting old unless I'm bummed about it. HAHA. I don't think 27 is old! However, I know what you mean about getting old.. haha. Does that make sense? Just another year going by. Too quick, huh?

Greetings from Glen Ivy!

We are thrilled that you decided to spend your special day with us at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa! It looks like you had a great time. Maybe next time you will be able to try Club Mud because it's an experience in itself!

As well, I must say that the cake is FABULOUS! I sure wish Edward made an appearance at my birthday party! He sure is eye candy ;-)

We look forward to your next visit!

To your health & happiness,

Kristen Koman

I always think that its just a number but think again we need to take care our skin before aging.

Sylvia said...

Happy belated birthday vanessa! i can't believe you're 27, girl you do not even look over 21!!!

Aya said...

I just turned 33 last month... but i still felt like i'm 27 and never get out from that age... hahahahha. Seriously... age wont change a thing it's in yourself, your head, your thought... I try to get along with my numbers a.k.a AGE now... and now i'm accept it... I'll always be 27ish no matter how old I am :D
