I'm 31!!!





My 30th year of life came and went! So much has happened in the last year. I am truly blessed and I felt just that as I woke up last Saturday, on my 31st birthday!

One of the biggest things I was truly grateful for was making it to 12 weeks of pregnancy!!!!


This is my official 1st time mentioning Baby Bell #3 on the blog! I will share much much more details of of how the pregnancy is going in the near future!

I am also thankful for my wonderful Inlaws who think about me and treat me so well. My Mom and Father Inlaw treated my family of 4 to breakfast, as part of my birthday gift.



It was so fun going to one of our local and favorite restraunts with them, Mr. Wonderful, and the kids!
After breakfast Mr. Wonderful, the kids,and I took a 2 mile walk on a new trail. Mr. Wonderful then gave me the opportunity to nap after working out!



I woke up to get dressed for dinner plans with my Mom, Sisters, and their Guys!

We all hopped on the BART to take us to one of my favorite Restraunts in Downtown Oakland!


On the BART I sat back and looked at my beautiful family! I am so glad that I live so close to my Mom, Sisters, and brother. On days like my birthday and holidays we do not have to travel far to celebrate together.


I am so thankful for the Mother and Sisters that God has given me!I can truly say they are some of my closest friends.


I am also thankful that my husband can call them family and enjoy them as friends too!!!


Flora Restraunt in Oakland once again did not dissappoint!


It was my family's 1st time coming and they were really impressed.


The atmosphere


The ambiance


The food


and even the presentation of the ice cubes were amazing!


Everyone tried eachothers food and just kept on saying this is so so good!


We had full stomachs and smiles on our faces!


Our conversations are always filled with so many laughs and just memorable.


It was time for the birthday song and they put a candle on my favorite dessert!


Carmalized Pudding!!!!



It was a trick candle so it took some time to completely blow it out!



After I shared my little pudding we headed back to the streets and back to the BART.





Can you tell that we get our fashion from our Mom?




Our next destination was San Francisco!

My Mom will stike a pose anywhere...even on BART!



My husband will always be up to imitating my Mom! LOL



Sweet Inspirations was where we had dessert in San Francisco!


We walked almost a mile for this dessert and it was so so worth it!!!




My birthday seem like it went so fast. The saying is true, "time flys when your having fun! The love I recieved from my family and friends is truly priceless and overwhelming when I think about it. I am glad that I made it through another year to experience them and life!
