Figured it out! Just hold option button when restarting. Easy enough

Or, you can open the Boot Camp item from Control Panel in Windows 7 and choose your MacIntosh HD to boot from. It will then automatically boot to OS X without having to hold down the Option key.

Or, while in OS X, go to System Preferences, Startup Disk, and select your MacIntosh HD as the default. It will always boot back to OS X from Windows 7.
