It started with a great gift from my big!….
The festivities continued with a group dinner….
Of course, being my 21st and all, I had to
have a drink bought for me order a drink….
One of the best parts of dinner at Cheesecake Factory?….
Dinner was fabulous and the company, better. It was good to get some food in me, for the upcoming night. Also…..
After dinner, I went to my friend Chris’s house, where he continued the ‘run/sign’ theme and made me a birthday shot. He is a bartender and knows his stuff….
At Chris’s, posing with my sign….
It’s important to come prepared for these things ;)…..
And lots of these bought for me!!!!!!……….
We left that bar and had one more stop to make before the night was over…..
and [(***Cough, yummmmmm)]…..
All iin all, a very fun night! My night because of the people who came out and celebrated with me. I loved all the Facebook shouts, messages and posts, the texts and calls on my bday, but mostly getting to see friends that I don’t have a chance to that often anymore… I really felt special this year. Having drinks bought for you and cards and presents is great and all… but really to me, it’s more about the friendships and the memories you make together. Perhaps corny, but true. 😀
So while the ’21 run’ notion may be to drink as hard and fast as you can on your 21st, that wasn’t my goal. I wanted to remember my birthday! I did drink, and I was ready to go to bed when my head hit the pillow that night, but I didn’t feel completely awful the next morning. I thank slowing down in between drinks, sipping on the nice mixed drinks and nixing the nasty shots. 😀
Are you 21? What did you do for your last birthday?
Favorite place to go for birthday dinners? I kind of would have liked to go for sushi, but I had a Cheesecake gift card burning a hole in my pocket and I feel like it’s a good group place… bonus: those cocktails….. 😉
