Whew, what a weekend! If you couldn't tell from the oh-so-nonchalent title of this post, yesterday was my BIRTHDAY!!! Yup, I'm a Labor Day baby!
Friday = Goodbye :(
Friday afternoon, a super-sad, yet super wonderful event took place. A good friend of mine is moving to boarding school up North, and she came to visit us during lunch at school :( I'm going to miss you, Maya!
After church on Sunday, my dad took me for a VERY exciting excursion (My new favorite word). We went birthday present shopping! Yay!
Since my siblings and I have been growing up and becoming more "opinionated", its a bit harder for my parents to get us birthday presents. Guess you can't just go buy a Barbie and call it a day, anymore, huh?
I was thrilled, because we headed to Academy for some workout clothes! My addiction.
Not going to lie, Monday was kind of my favorite :)
I ended up waking up nice and early. I was excited! Unforchunately, 5 AM isn't exactly the best time of day to celebrate birthdays, no? However, my hunger got the best of me, and so I managed to sneak downstairs for this little rockstar.
Oh Trail Mix, thank you for always being there for me :)
I managed to fall back asleep for a few more hours, before being awoken at 8 AM by a very enthusiastic family with a very delicious breakfast in bed. Whoo!!
There were also some blueberry muffins involved. Unforchunately, they just weren't fast enough to make it for the picture ;)
I happened to really enjoy my birthday mocha, served out of this special mug. Yes, I am in fact a lefty!
Around 11, I walked outside to my mailbox, and found this lovely card from one of my best friends. Love you, Anna, thank you!
We headed out for (what else?) Mexican for lunch. Alyson and I split some veggie enchiladas. All that's left over on that plate? GONE by the time we left.
Friends give the BEST cards!
On Sunday evening, my sister took out a friend of mine and I for a photoshoot. Alyson is interested in photography, and is trying to widen her portfolio and experience, soooooo...what better fun than to be a model!
What an amazing weekend! I'm so thankful for all the wishes, gifts, memories, and moments. I'll cherish them forever, and I love each and every one of you amazing people!
