November 8th, 2017, was the day I finally turned 21! I had such a great time with Leisha, as she made my entire night, and day so much better. We stayed at the Grand Beach Hotel, which was pretty nice. We had a nice sized room with a beautiful view. Take a look.
The view was breathtaking! We’re friendly balcony viewers. Spent a lot of time up there at night, chilling, talking and bonding.
Slightly was feeling myself, the bathroom in our room was marvelous. We took so many photos here as well!
After spending sometime, relaxing at the hotel, we went out for dinner at Lola’s Restaurant & Grill! This restaurant was by far the best we’ve ever been to. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves! How great was that?! Our waiter was very polite, and patient with us. Prior to our arrival at the restaurant, the host was so nice to ask us if we wanted pictures, and that is how we got this picture.
Below was what Leisha ordered. She ordered the Fettuccine Carbonara! She rated her dish a 10/10.
And I ordered the Herb Lemon Butter Atlantic Salmon. My dish was super delicious, I rated it a 10/10,
We left the restaurant, super satisfied, happy tummy’s, and cute pictures! We got the host to capture our moments.
We ended our night chilling on our balcony, with Mary Jane ;). It was such a lovely night. The bed felt amazing once we jumped in. Had the best sleep ever.
The next morning we went out on the beach, which was behind the hotel we were staying at.
It was such a relaxing morning! The weather was perfect. The ocean waves sounded soothing.
After staying at the hotel, because we only stayed one night, we checked out, and continued our day!
We were suppose to have some brunch at Bird & Bone restaurant but they didn’t have much options to choose from and were a bit pricey. So we searched what was close by and found The Tavern at Hotel Croydon. Their fries were really good! We both enjoyed our burgers as well. 8/10 we’d say.
We visited Lincoln Road to check out some of the shops they had there. We found a candy shop: Dylan’s Candy Bar, and a mini book store: Books & Books. Dylan’s Candy Bar, had all sorts of candy.. from old school to new school. The book store had neat readings, and everyone’s old time favorite “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”!
We started a collection of photobooth pictures recently… so this was our addition to it! Taken in the photobooth at Dylan’s Candy Shop.
After some time of exploring on Lincoln Road, we started to crave something sweet; ice cream, sorbet, gelatos.. SOMETHING. We ran into Gelateria 4D! Yum. This was exactly what we needed. The flavors I got were, mango and strawberry. Leisha got strawberry, and lemon. Both were delicious, and satisfying.
Finally after a long continuous day of celebrating my 21st, we ended the evening with Painting With A Twist in the Coral Gables location. Our painting instructor for the night Chandra, was SUPER GREAT. She was very cool, easy to talk to if questions were asked, and made it fun to create! I ended up going home with two art pieces, one that I created, and the other was given to me by the instructor! It was because my birthday was the day before (the 8th). I was super surprised, and blessed because, when we had first gotten there, I was eyeing the piece, thinking to myself how dope it was. It was like a lowkey manifestation!
We will have the Birthday Vlog up soon, hopefully before December ahah. Things have been hectic this month!
Overall I had such a wonderful birthday. The best birthday I’ve ever had. Thanks to my girlfriend Leisha, and everyone who had wished me a happy birthday. #MoreLife
