MY 19th BIRTHDAY
My birthday this year was so good! But to be honest, I don’t feel any older. Nevertheless, I am another year older. I got to go shopping a few days before my birthday! See, as I get older, I’ve learned it’s best to pick out my gifts so I get exactly what I want. This is one of the perks of being an only child. My parents have always spoiled me and loved me and for that I am grateful. They always go all out on my birthday and make me feel very special!
This year, on my actual birthday, my Daddy was home. He’s not been home on my birthday in 3 years because of work. We went to lunch at the bakery that made my cake. Then we went to my favorite beyond favorite Christmas store, Salem Creek. They have 2 levels and both are filled with Christmas decor. Also there was hot apple cider that was amazing! I got 2 new Christmas ornaments which will be my Christmas gifts this year. They have huge displays of sweets decorations and ornaments which of course I fell in love with. Then later we met my cousins for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Firebirds. They have THE best ribs I’ve ever had. I love them! We had the cake from the bakery, which no one ate because it was awful. Last year we got a cake from the same bakery and it was much better. But it was really pretty even though it tasted awful. My mom sent them an email to tell them it wasn’t good and they said that sometimes it happens that they have a bad run and they knew there was one but they didn’t know which cakes it was. They were really nice and apologized and gave us a full refund. My mom made me a homemade chocolate cake a few days later that was fabulous! She is so sweet!
PRESENTS! This year I got a new lamp (which is super pretty and matches my room’s color scheme), 4 new sweets Christmas ornaments for my sweets themed tree, I got new clothes from Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister. I got 8 new Pandora charms, an Amazon Kindle $25 gift card, and $20 in cash! The charms are gorgeous and I got 2 that weren’t even on my wish list! Also I should mention that my cat, Powder got really sick in October and the vet didn’t even think he’d make it til my birthday and I’m happy to report that my boy is doing so well! He’s back to his normal self and I couldn’t be happier! I got Powder on my 5th birthday and it was nice to have another birthday together :) If loving a kitty back to health is possible, then we’ve done it. And honestly I could have cared less about presents this year! All I wanted was Powder to get better and he did :)
I got lots of birthday tweets from my friends on Twitter and hearing from you all made my special day even more wonderful! :)
Here’s some pictures from my birthday :) Also thanks to all my friends and family for making my 19th birthday so amazing :)
