21st Birthday celebration

My birthday was an amazing day! I'm confident that this next year will be an amazing year in my life. My birthday was filled with friends and food and drinks and all around good times with good people. 21 is pretty fun!

We woke up pretty early and went out of breakfast at IHOP (Mostly because my lovely aunt bought us a gift card and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to put it to use). And, despite that fact that it was about 9 in the morning, I was given free birthday Ice cream and you really can't turn that down.

I then went to work for a few hours and was greeted by cupcakes when I went in (they weren't there for my birthday necessarily, but it was a nice surprise!) 

After work I went out and had my first legal drink with my boyfriend and our roommate. I was given a free spiked lemonade at our favorite local bar. Our roommate took me to get a free coffee at dutch brothers and then he took me to the liqueur store for the first time and I spent just a little bit and got two bottles of alcohol, mostly just because I could. 

Later in the day TJ, my lovely boyfriend and I went to Olive Garden, our favorite date place for a nice dinner. We both ordered the Tour Of Italy, which is a sampler of Olive Gardens most popular dishes. We also had calamari & Mozzarella sticks and I had about 2 glasses of a Rosato wine and a few free tastes of other wines.

Finally, we ended the day with a late night showing of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We're both very big Harry Potters fans and we loved seeing the newest movie in the franchise. 

20 was a big year. A lot of wonderful things happened to me. This blog post goes into a bit more detail about my 20th year. However, I'm so confident and set on making my 21st year even more wonderful. I'm now living with my boyfriend in a wonderful apartment. I have a job that I love and I already know I'm going to travel a bit more this year and explore more places. I always wondered when my life would begin and now I realize that it actually has. And it's a wonderful life! Thanks to everyone in my life who makes it so fantastic!
