I'm 25 years and 3 days old....can't believe it! Growing up I'd always have a countdown to my birthday...but the past few years June 19th seems to have just crept up on me without me realizing. However, this year was different....I was excited for my 25th Birthday....I wasn't going to have a birthday party- I've stopped having birthday parties since I was 19...but this year was different....I wanted to celebrate the milestone; A QUARTER CENTURY- it's kind of a big deal! I wanted a fun celebration, a celebration I'd have with just my girlfriends...something like a girls' night out! So that was my plan..on my birthday (thursday)I sent out evites for the girls night out party on saturday.
Thursday June 19th, woke up earlier than usual....my cellphone rang, my parents were calling, as soon as I answered the phone I heard my mommy's voice and she and daddy sang Happy Birthday To ME :-D. After my morning serenade I hopped in the shower and as I was stepping out my Shaunie was there waiting for me and sang Happy Birthday, then he gave me the most beautiful card EVER! I cried...yeah I'm very emotional.... I got dressed and made it to work later than usual...said Bon Dia to everyone sitting at the front desk...when I got to my cubicle...it was decorated with a Happy Birthday Banner, a bouquet, and a card...I felt soo special!! The day was turning out to be wonderful ....I received phone calls, endless msn messages,email birthday cards and facebook messages... Roseline bought me lunch from Starbucks and as I was drinking my soup, she told me that smoke was coming out of the conference room.....I jumped up and was like...OMG that's crazy...as I got to the door and realized the door was closed I knew they were trying to surprise me (Melissa and Bianny) for our birthdays- yay for June babies!!! There were 3 cakes on the table and ofcourse mine was the Carvel Ice Cream Cake, they sang Happy Birthday To Us and then we got to cut our cakes :-D. I had to scoop Shaunie up from work today and when we left his job he took me to Bahama Breeze for dinner...he even made reservations....I still can't believe it! We had a fun dinner date.
Saturday June 21st- My Girls Night by the pool was scheduled for today...but the weather was not cooperating, so I had to move the celebration indoors...we had a wonderful time..if I must say so myself..but I think others will agree. We were about 15 girls hanging out, drinking martinis, socializing and eating. We also did karaoke....(Comcast has Karaoke OnDemand)...My last guests left around 2AM...Thanks to all that came out to make my Birthday Celebration memorable!
