Last night was my 21st birthday.

It was a-maz-ing.


I woke up around 9AM and mom came in my room and started singing Happy Birthday and she gave me a card to open.

It was such a sweet card!

So I opened it up and I saw a $20 bill and I thought "well, that's nice of her", but then I looked behind the $20 and saw a $100 bill! And I was like "wow, Mom, thanks!!". Then there was change in there too. It was a dollar in change. HAHA! She would of given me a dollar bill but didn't have one.

So $121 for my 21st birthday. :)

Then my dad called me and we agreed to meet at Best Buy at 11:30AM to buy my phone.

Then.. I walked into the kitchen and sitting on the kitchen table was a HUGE cookie cake!

Let's just say I had cookie cake for breakfast. ;) Breakfast of champions!

Then I left to go meet my dad at Best Buy to get my phone.

We met, and turns out they discontinued the Palm Pixi that I was planning on getting!

So, I decided to get the Palm Pre.

I. love. it.

It has a touchscreen, but the keyboard isn't touch.

Which is fine with me.

I'm actually VERY glad that I got this instead of the Pixi!

My new favorite toy. :)

I also ordered a hot pink skin online today for it!

Isn't it cute?!?

So then I came home, packed a bag, got ready, and headed to Tony's apartment!

I arrived there and he told me to go in the bathroom while he got my presents ready!

I kept asking if I could come out and FINALLY he said I could.

So I walked into the living room and there were roses, chocolate roses, and a big gift bag!

So, I reached into the bag and pulled out a cute card, a gift card to Barnes and Noble, and the 30 Day Shred!!

I've been wanting the Southern Living cookbook for a few months now, so I was SO glad he got me that gift card to Barnes and Noble!

I was also VERY excited about the 30 Day Shred video since I start my diet and exercise again tomorrow to lose 10-15 lbs!

Perfect timing.

Plus, the chocolate roses weren't a bad idea either, considering I'm a chocoholic freak!

Me preteding to eat the chocolate rose.

So, we had reservations at Kani House at 7:30 and decided to leave the apartment around 5:30 so we could stop at Barnes and Noble to buy the cookbook, and go to TJ Maxx to look for a shirt.

Well, we headed to TJ Maxx and I couldn't find anything I liked.

So, we went to Barnes and Noble so I could get the book.

We left there and we had a good 30 minutes before we had to head to dinner.

So we decided to sit in Tony's car and skim there the cookbook to kill time.

We finally left and got to Kani House.

We had a wonderful dinner. I ordered the fried rice, chicken, and steak and Tony ordered brown fried rice, shrimp, and chicken.

It was devine. Just perfect. I love when they cook in front of you!

Of course, I had to order my first legal drink!

I got a strawberry daqiuri! YUUUM. It was delish!

Me and my first legal drink! It was SOO good. Of course, as you can see here, I had finished it all before I realized I wanted a picture! Haha! I was feeling pretty good after that drink :)

Us before leaving for dinner

After we finished eating dinner, we headed to The Cheesecake Factory! Last year for my 20th, we went to The Cheesecake Factory after dinner and so I decided to do it again this year. It will probably become a tradition.

This is the cheesecake I got for my 20th birthday. Oreo cheesecake. Mmm!

This year I got the Dutch Apple Caramel Struesel cheesecake. OMG. It was SO good. I couldn't finish it all righ then since we just had a big meal, but don't worry, I finished it later on that night for a midnight snack. ;)

Tony got the Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake.

Omg, it was HUGE!

He took about 5 bites. Haha!

Oh, and while we were waiting to be seated at The Cheesecake Factory, I took a shot of Jager.

I can actually stand it, unlike straight vodka.


So when I asked for a shot of Jager, the bartender said "whew" and asked for I.D. and I gave it to him, he looked at it pretty hard for like 10 seconds, and said "well happy birthday!" and gave me my shot. I took it and it was amazing. HAHA!

I was contemplating on taking another, but decided against it.

After the cheesecake, we headed back to Tony's apartment and cuddled for the rest of the night.

Woke up this morning and headed back home to see my mom for Mother's Day.

Mom did a lot of yardwork and I cleaned up my room. It was a mess!

As I was cleaning, I found one of our cats under the bed..

Her eyes were open and I just thought she was laying down, relaxing.

Then I took a closer look, and I realized she was dead.

It creeped me out, but also sad.

She was hard, eyes open.

I ran outside to tell my mom, and she's been devastated all day.

She's been crying all day long, thinking our neighbor poisoned our cat.

Our neighbor is REALLY crazy, but that's for another LONG post.

She's been just balling all day.

Not a very good Mother's Day for her. :/

I've been trying all day to let her know it's ok and that our car is in a better place.

R.I.P Kiki, you were the most talkative cat we've ever had and had so much personality.

She was only a year old.

I have no clue how she died.

Tonight, I headed to my dad's for birthday dinner and cake.

Red Velvet cake!

I got a card from my stepmom and step sibilings, and my dad and brother.

Really cute cards, and lots of money.

Not sure who gave me how much money, but overall I had $145 from them.

So far, that's $266!

I also got more coming from my grandparents tomorrow. ;)

This was the BEST birthday I've ever had.

Hands down.

I couldn't of asked for more.

I got to spend it with my amazing boyfriend and amazing family.

I'm so blessed and it has been a GREAT 21 years! :)
