Celebrating #38 With My Boys

My 38th birthday celebration was quite a fun one – thanks to my boys! They definitely made it special for me!

Mal and I picked up Quinn early from school and headed down to The Oysterman in Duxbury for “Mumma’s party.” I’m not someone who makes a big deal of my birthday, so this was the perfect little celebration!

My “party” kicked off with a glass of champagne and presents! 🙂


FYI: My sunglasses are from Kohv. They’re stylish AND affordable. You can save 10% with code carrotsncake!

My boys bought me a beautiful necklace with “quinn” engraved on it, along with his and my birth stone. I absolutely love it! I’m actually wearing it right now! 🙂

Our meal started with oysters (obviously) – all of which were local from Duxbury, Kingston, and Wellfleet.

For my entree, I went with the Tequila-Lime Scallop Ceviche and a side of hand-cut French fries, which were out of this world. Mal and I couldn’t stop talking about how good they tasted – even Quinn ate some!

After dinner, we stuck around for a drink on the couch outside. I didn’t want the celebration to end! 🙂

On the drive home, we swung by a nearby bakery to buy piece of cake… because no birthday celebration is complete without CAKE! It was delicious!

All in all, it was a wonderful birthday celebration, Here’s to an awesome year, and THANK YOU for all of the sweet birthday wishes yesterday! 🙂

Question of the Day

What kind of celebration do you prefer for your birthday? Big? Little? All month long?



  1. Happy Birthday Tina! That is definitely my kind of celebration. With a birthday in February (in MA!) I’m never really tempted to go out so I usually request some take-out like sushi or pizza, wine, cake and a movie. And of course I put on my comfiest sweats 🙂

  2. Happy birthday, Tina! I hope you have an amazing year ahead.
    That ceviche looks delicious.
    Where is your pretty top from?

  3. Happy Birthday!!!
    I like celebrating all month long. It usually happens that way because I’m getting together with various people from all over the area I live, so one party wouldn’t cut it. Plus, who doesn’t like a month full of being treated to meals?!

  4. I hate big gatherings … so I prefer not to celebrate my birthday. My friends on the other hand aren’t big on forgetting my birthday. So I get all of my CLOSE friends together on ONE night and that’s the extent of my celebrating. I DO still require a birthday cake and yummy ice cream with my parents to celebrate my big day.

    Do you plan to have a big 40th birthday in 2 years? I am starting to fear my 30th birthday because EVERYONE will want to have a big get together! 🙁

  5. happy happy (belated) birthday, Tina! sorry i missed the day…i’m blaming my moving/crazy week 🙂 so glad it was fabulous! hugs

  6. Every year, even now that I am 32, I have dinner with my parents (and of course my husband too) on the day of my birthday even if it is on a Tuesday like it was this year. My husband and I have dinner together on a different day just the two of us. It feels special to always be with my parents on that day.
