Birthday Celebration

Hey all, sorry I haven’t posted much besides about my niece’s birthday in almost a month. Things have been kind of crazy, although I will admit that I took last week off to celebrate my 21st birthday.

Which is exactly what I was going to talk about today.

I turned 21 on Saturday. It was a day of sleeping late and spending the afternoon doing absolutely nothing, which was great. It was the first Saturday in forever that I’ve been able to do that, so it was nice to not have to worry about going anywhere.

That is, until that night.

I’m not complaining about having to go out at night, though. In fact, I had planned that about six months ago. I went to go see Sidewalk Prophets and Tenth Avenue North in concert. It was a lot of fun. But before that, I went to go eat at Olive Garden, which was nice.

I loved getting to go see those two bands. It was a great night. It was fun, and I got to meet two of the guys from Sidewalk Prophets after, and even took my picture with them!

To wrap up the whole birthday celebration, I guess I should just say one thing: Happy Birthday to me!


Easter Sunday

For those of you that celebrate Easter, I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating. For those of you that don’t, I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I, personally, celebrate Easter. It was a fun time of being with family.

I admit, at first I was a little disappointed that my nieces and nephew weren’t staying with my family the entire day. My sister took them to a family friend’s house…more stuff to do for the kids. After I calmed down, I understood.

One problem remained…how was I going to keep myself entertained? Well, books solved that problem.

ANYWAY. I’m getting off track here. I loved being with my family all day, even if I don’t always enjoy every second of it. I especially enjoyed the chaos that happened right after church. As it turns out, trying to take a picture with all three kids at once is pretty much an impossible task. I managed to get a picture with the two girls together, and one with my nephew separately. I have not received that picture yet, though. My dad took it and hasn’t sent it to me yet. Maybe I’ll post it when I actually get it.

Being with family isn’t always easy, but enjoying the time you have with them is absolutely crucial. Whether or not you celebrate certain holidays, being with family is important, and the best part is, you can appreciate them every day of the year, even if you don’t always like being with them.

I leave you with the picture I got with my two nieces. Until Wednesday…stay tuned!
