So I’m sitting here, playing my iTunes library & sipping some much delicious Swiss Miss French Vanilla hot cocoa & it dawned on me; I haven’t told you all about my birthday yet! How could I leave out such an important day? Yeah I don’t know either. So let’s get started, shall we?
The first part of my birthday celebration started on the 13th with my mom’s side of the family! We got everyone together (Aunt Debbie & Uncle Jim, their daughter Elaine & her 2 year old, Brady, their son Jimmy & his wife, Sheri & their girls, Haleigh & Jenna & my mom Lela & my daddy Tim) to eat at Cracker Barrel. Everyone but my Papa who didn’t feel like going. I understood. We ate and I opened my presents: Viva La Juicy- Juicy Couture perfume, a pink Snuggie, a check with $20 on it, & really nice Bose earbuds for my iPod. I loved being with everyone! We took lots of pictures, had cake and enjoyed each other’s company!
The day before my Seventeenth birthday (the 16th), my mom’s best friend whom she also works with, came over to spend the night! Her name is Barbie! We met her at Long Horn Steakhouse! I got the Flo’s Filet (HEY, it was my birthday dinner!) & a baked potato & then the dessert sampler & no I’m not a pig. Anyways then we went home, by that time, since Barbie had driven from a night meeting, it was pretty late so we all went straight to bed.
MY BIRTHDAY: Up before 10:00AM (I know! What a shock!?) I was busy tweeting and thanking the early birds for my birthday wishes. Then a sweet birthday wish came from TommyJoe Ratliff which when I saw it, made my heart soar! How sweeeet of him? He said “awww happy birthday!” Then after that happened, I thought I heard my mom talking downstairs and so I got on up and went down to find her and Barbie down there talking! Next came the big birthday breakfast complete with hash browns, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and sausage!! YUM! After that we all got ready and headed about 30 minutes from my house to a HUGE mall that takes forever to walk all the way around!
I got some cute head bands from Icing with a pair of earrings & a bling ring! Then I went to Papaya & got a sweater and 3 tank tops, purple, blue & pink. & I went in the GUESS store and got a cute red top that says Los Angeles on it in black which will go great with my black leggings and low booties. As I was walking out I heard a familiar voice come on, it was ADAM LAMBERT singing WWFM! It was one of the remixes but it was awesome!!!! I told the clerk “kudos for playing Adam Lambert” she obviously didn’t pick the music because she looked at me like “who the hell is that?” but it was still awesome!
At Pac Sun I got new black flats and a sparkly scarf! Then after that we ate lunch at a mexican place my mom wanted to go but I didn’t really care for what I got. Then we all went to target and I got the new Keith Urban CD & some adorable pajamas & another head bands! HAHA! My mom loves to spoil me<3
After we got back to the house, I opened up my big present! Oh & that reminds me now, my daddy got to come home for a few days but had to leave the day before my birthday and my mom was telling me how much he hated he couldn’t be there & after Barbie had left, she was talking to him on the phone and started crying. I’ve never seen my mom act this way before, however, they’ve never had to be apart before either & I hate he couldn’t be there either but I understood.
I opened up the big present which I already had a hunch of what it was, and I was right! It was a stereo that will play my iPod and my daddy being who he his, got me a huge one with a sub woofer! LOL I love it and boy does it make Adam sound great! I opened my stuff from Barbie, which was a cupcake making kit, & not a little kids one, it came from Borders with a silicone pan to bake with & recipe book! She also got me another cupcake recipe book that came with really pretty cupcake cards to send! My mom put an $15 iTunes gift card in my card from her and my daddy and she also got me some cute sweet treats ornaments for my Christmas tree which I cannot wait to put up!!! I also got $20 from my mom’s other good work friend(: I had a great birthday! I also got calls from family members, posts from my friends on facebook (from even some I don’t talk to anymore which made me feel good) and a ton of tweets from friends on twitter which was great! I hadn’t realized the largeness of my following on twitter! So thanks everyone!
Barbie had to leave after the cake and ice cream but the whole birthday was a blast and I was glad she came(:
Yesterday I found out my neighbor at the top of the hill had her twin girls….on MY birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great 17th birthday<3
THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE IT WONDERFUL FOR ME!
