What I Got For My Birthday 2017

November the 24th was my 21st birthday!! Hooray for me! I spent the day Black Friday shopping, and watching really bad Hallmark movies with my grandma. It was a really relaxed day, and I really enjoyed it! After all the craziness that was Thanksgiving, it was nice to have a day for me where I could choose what I wanted to do.

This post is going to be going through all of the things that I got for my birthday this year! I don't know id a disclaimer is necessary, but I want to state that I'm not making this post to try to brag or show off, I just wanted to do a post because I love seeing other people's posts like these. I'm just a bit nosy, I guess. 

I got some gift cards, which are always popular with me! I typically save them for a rainy day or for when I've run out of time to make myself a lunch before I've left home. When people asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I would always say gift cards! They're easy, and I like to have them stored away. The specific ones that I got were for iTunes, Bath and Body Works, McDonald's, and Subway. I'm for sure excited to use them in the future!

When my mom was visiting another state, she saw these sticky tabs in a store and said she had to get them for me! They're all different animals! That way I'll have cute little animal faces sticking out of my books (both textbooks and personal/fun books). They're relatively small, and their adhesive is surprisingly strong so they do really stick! I've already left my mom a few notes stuck to mirrors with these, and I absolutely love them!

This one is kind of an inside joke... It's a Present shaped Bath Bomb from Lush! I got a Present for a Present! I don't think I really need to talk about this one very much, it seems as though everyone who cares about Lush would already know what this is and how great it is.

On the more practical side, I got a new backpack in my favorite color. My old backpack was really falling apart - I had sewn it back together in several places, and duct taped over other places, and it really wasn't suiting its purpose anymore. Even though I didn't pick out this backpack for myself, I would have picked this exact one if I did! It's the perfect amount of pockets, and no need for sewing or duct taping!

It's no secret that I'm a BIG fan of Dutch Bros. Every year I've gotten their $10 seasonal mug, and I was really bummed about not being able to get one this year (because I go to school in a state without Dutch Bros), but my younger brother was ahead of the game and got me this year's mug for my birthday! I've already used it several times, and just like with the others that I have, I love it! 

Several weeks ago when my parents were visiting me, we went through a lot of department stores and I fell in love with a set of flower pots. My mom, being the super sneaky person that she is, got them for me along with some plants to put in them! I've got it set up on the bookshelf by my bed, which is near a window, and it makes me so happy to have some green living in my room to brighten up the space. I'm not the best at keeping plants alive, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to do so with these. That way I'll keep some green throughout the Winter months!

This keychain has a bit of a long backstory to it... So bear with me on this one, I'll tell it as briefly as I can without skimping out too much. When my boyfriend and I first started dating, I had a really bad day that ended with me locking my keys in my car in the parking lot outside of my apartment. I called my boyfriend, who had already heard a lot about how bad my day was. He was at work, which was why I called him, because part of his job at our office involves unlocking and jump starting cars for students. For some reason my car wouldn't unlock very easily, but he managed to pull my wad of keys out through the door so that I could unlock my car that way! In doing so, the trinket on my keychain was broken off, and I told him he owed me a new one. Not so jokingly he said he would get me one for my birthday with Putin's face on it! So when he handed me the keychain, I was really happy that it had a unicorn, and not Putin on it. He's a good egg, but sometimes he worries me! Hahaha

The same brother who gave me the Dutch Bros mug also gave me this really nice knit scarf! I had only said once in passing that I needed a white scarf for some of my outfits, and he remembered when he went to the store to get something for me. I'm beyond happy with it, I'll for sure be wearing all the time this winter.

Last but not least, I got a new sweater! It was one that I tried on when I was with my mom and really liked. It was funny when I opened it because my mom said "I betcha it fits so well you'd almost think you tried it on first!" It's soft and comfortable, and I've already been wearing it almost every day. I think that people will get sick of seeing me in this sweater I've been wearing it so much. There's nothing cozier than a really nice sweater.
