My Birthday

Well, today is my 21st birthday...a very monumental day! I have been so blessed by loved ones today and yesterday. Last night, the "Office" gang threw a party for Josh Cummings and me. Josh had a birthday a week ago (so he is 2 years and a week older than me). My friend, Kellie, had made Funfetti cake...which is my favorite!...and she even made a few in star-shaped cupcake holders. Together, the little cakes spelled out mine and Josh's names. So great! It's been neat to become involved in a community of young adults after coming back for the summer. They are such amazing people to be surrounded with.

This morning, I woke up and immediately opened the box that my roommate had sent me. It had arrived on the porch Friday morning and I had been dying to open it. In it was a note saying that there were 21 little presents for me to open for the 21 years that I have been alive! Throughout the day, I opened presents. All of them were little things that I love or that Laura and I really like doing. She has been such a treasure to me! I don't know what I did to deserve her! Here are pictures of it:

Later today, we got everything final for the purchase of my neighbor's car. Even though it is now sitting out in the driveway right now, I don't think that it's really clicked with me that I own a car. crazy! My parents are very generous for making a way for me to have my own transportation. The best part about it is that I won't have to find a ride back and forth to college for breaks! People will probably start asking me for rides! I think that I will need to name my car this week, so if you have any ideas, let me know!

For dinner, my parents, brother, sister-in-law and I went to Outback Steak House. I'm a girl who loves a steak with veggies, potatoes, and bread. It was marvelous! Then we went to my brother's apartment to have Boston Cream Pie. When I was little, I always used to ask for a heart-shaped cake, so my mom made the Boston Cream in the shape of a heart....AND Boy!...was it delicious!

Thank you to everyone who blessed me on this day. It was a gift!
