This past week was my 21st Birthday! I opted to go for a more laid back day rather than going crazy. The day before my birthday a friend asked me to come to her apartment so that I could help her hang up pictures in her apartment. When I got there she told me she needed me to hang something up in her bathroom; when I walked in my best friend from home was hiding and surprised me! She gave me a present; a super cute makeup bag,mirrored jewelry box, and a coffee mug that says “Happy Holidays Hottie.” Then, the three of us went to get sushi and caught up and chatted. When we got home we played Cards Against Humanity until Lauren left. I went back to my boyfriends apartment where we decided to get a piece of cake to start celebrating and then went to sleep.
I started the big day by waking up and eating breakfast at my sorority house; while I was there the girls sang Happy Birthday to me which honestly made my day. I then went to class from 10:30-12 and went home to get dressed. I decided to wear jeans with a camel color sweater and nude wedges (which I ended up breaking later #ugh). Then I went to Starbucks to get my free Birthday Drink and also to Firehouse Subs and got my free medium Birthday Sub! It was actually my first time trying Firehouse and I thought it was so good! Firehouse serves their subs steamed so they are warm and delicious. After that my boyfriend and I hopped in the car and drove home. Once we got there I first went and voted. Next, I went to Harrah’s Casino. When we entered I gave the man my ID and he wished me Happy Birthday. After that, we went and signed up for the reward program at the Casino; since it was my birthday I got to win a prize, a free meal at the buffet good for the next month. After this I played on the machines; first was the slots and then the wheel. I gained and then lost all of my money. Once the money was gone, we headed to my house where my mom made my favorite food, Crawfish Pasta, and I got to open presents and eat a German Chocolate Cake. After this my best friend Lauren surprised me again by swinging by to say hi after she got off of work. After we talked briefly we all left and I headed back to Baton Rouge. When I got home that night I went to sleep almost right away because I was so tired. Overall, I had a really good day and I am hoping to continue celebrating with my friends this coming week and weekend. Also, Nothing Bundt Cakes gives you a free bundt cake for your birthday when you sign up for their emails so I am planning on going to pick that up soon too!
So what did I get for my birthday?
Besides money and gift cards I got quite a good bit of clothes.
Two of my favorite items are a dark red shirt that says “Live Well & Travel Often” and a grey sweatshirt that says “Brunch Squad” as you know, I love brunch so this sweatshirt is so fitting for me. They are both soft and super comfortable and I cant wait to pair them with some cute jeggings, booties, and maybe a scarf! I’m also going to be going shopping some time soon to be getting a few more birthday presents for myself.
I’ll be updating ya’ll soon about Thanksgiving break and also I’m hoping to be doing a VoxBox Reveal as well! I think I’ll be doing a video on youtube as well as a blog to talk about Influenster and the VoxBox program as well as talk about the products I receive!
