My 19th Birthday


This year, I had one of the best birthdays ever. I'm not saying that because I got a load of presents and all my friends came over and I was able to go out partying. Nope. I got the presents that I had asked for, some that were just for fun and others that were more practical for my job and for school. I was able to go shoe shopping with my grandma (my current shoes were taped to hold them together, so her present to me was a new pair of shoes) and then we watched It's a Wonderful Life together! I had never seen it before, so even though it was a Christmas movie and that's one of my pet peeves I was okay watching it because my grandma was so excited about watching it with me for my first time seeing it.

In addition to getting the presents that I both wanted and needed, I also got my present in the mail from my boyfriend! He had it overnight shipped to my house so that I'd for sure get it and open it on my birthday. He and I are really bad about waiting to open presents. If we receive it early, chances are that we'll open it early as well. He was at work when the package was dropped up, so I did wait a few hours until he was off work so that we could video call and he could watch my reaction when I opened the present. Honestly, I think the reaction is the best part, so I always make him video call me as well when I send him a present. 

For my birthday in the past, my mom goes and gets me a huge Costco cake, so that we can eat some of it on my actual birthday, and then we put the rest on the Desert Table on Thanksgiving for my extended family to eat and enjoy as well. This year, however, I requested a confetti cake because it's my favorite kind, and my mom agreed to make it! She made a BEAUTIFUL 3 tiered cake with while confetti frosting and pink sugar sprinkled on it with a lovely ring of 19 pink candles. I bet you can all guess what my favorite color is! 

I put a pair of number shaped candles on my cake after my mom asked if I wanted them on or not, and I unknowingly put the numbers on the wrong way! How is that even possible!? My mom took pictures of me with the cake and then moved the numbers. I had absolutely no idea that I'd put them on wrong! Hahaha I'm in college and I put the numbers on my own cake the wrong way!

After coming home from my Grandma's house and eating some cake, my mom and I cuddled on the couch with our dog and watched Miracle on 34th Street because, again, I'd never seen it before. This time, however, it was my mom that was really excited about watching it with me. 

At the end of the day, I was really tired and really happy about being able to spend so much time with my family and being able to eat the best cake ever! (Some of my friends hadn't come home for Thanksgiving Break from school, so I didn't have a party with my friends because only one or two of them were in town and they wanted to spend time with their own families)

All in all, it was a really amazing day!
