Tuesday was my 21st birthday.
I spent the morning on the couch watching Cougar Town, then I went and finally saw Les Miserables with my friend Imogen. I then got the lounge set up for a old school sleepover extravaganza.
Little did I know my friends had been lying to me for weeks and had a bit of a surprise in store....
So some background info to this story. My best friend Alanna has spent the last 12 months living in Calcutta, India. 12 whole months. Obviously I missed her like crazy. Now she had told me her flight home was on the 6th of Feb, the day after my birthday. I had accepted this, she was coming to my party so I wasn't too bummed.
I hear Rachel and Imogen (who remember I had been hanging out with all afternoon) arrive at my house, and all of a sudden I'm told to stay away from the windows, apparently they had a big present and I wasn't allowed to see it yet. So then obliviously I wander downstairs to find this at my door...
Obviously, what with my squealing and crying reaction, I had no clue this was about to happen, so I have come to the conclusion my friends are extremely good liars. It really was the best gift!
Ignore my tired face, I got about 3 hours sleep that night!
Now to catch up on some sleep, plan for my party on Saturday, and spend some time with my friends! 21 is going to be a great year!
