yesterday was my birthday. i turned a lovely 17. these past few days when people would ask me "what are you doing for your birthday?" my response would be "oh...just some small things with a few friends."
i never ever in a kabillion zillion years...EVER thought i would have a surprise birthday party. ever. honestly, i thought i would never be fooled into going someplace and then see a bunch of people jumping up and saying SUPRISE! it just never occurred to me to even be suspicious.
well...that was silly.
yes. i said "aw shucks."
turns out they thought i had seen them so they weren't as loud and enthusiastic...but i was completely taken by shock. lol.
apparently the secret/lie/deception had been going on for quite some time! i can't believe that i had no suspicions! YOU GUYS...are awesome.
the food was just DELISH! fried chicken. cheese fries. sweet tea. YES!
and the company was simply to die for... :)
posing with elvis was very lovely. he was so ever so kind.
apples-to-apples and catchphrase at the house was simply hilarious. even though i'm, sadly, dreadful at both games. haha!
i blew the candles out with one breath. oh my voice teacher should be SO PROUD of my lung capacity!!
and receiving german chocolate (mine had a hint of cinnamon!) was just the perfect touch to end the day off with.
i'd like to end this birthday post with a thank you to all of these wonderful people, along with my facebook friends, twitter friends, and JOY friends who have wished me a happy birthday! i love each and every one of you SO much. and it means quite a lot that each of you took time to either jump up from behind the bar at a restaurant or simply wish me well on a brand new year of life.
i hope this next year is simply the BEST!
