Last Thursday was my 22nd birthday and I celebrated in Atlanta with my cousin katie and my best friend Erin. Before heading to katie’s apartment my parents and I had a late brunch at J.Christopher’s and it was delicious. At brunch my parents gave me a card which included a $50 T.J. Maxx gift card and $50 dollars. The money was in different bills which included a 20 and a 2!
When I got to katie’s we hung out for awhile. She showed me her apartment, it is really nice but I just don’t know if I could live downtown! It is so busy and I hate driving downtown! It was good to catch up with Katie in person, we hadn’t seen each other since Easter. Erin made it up there around five and it was great to see her too! I hadn’t seen her since the Gavin/Colbie concert, so it had been over a month! Erin got me a cute blue purse. I like the idea of having a secondary pocketbook but would never by one myself!
We went to Tin Lizzy’s Cantina for dinner. It started raining right after Erin got there and then it really started pouring for a minute there but we made a run for the restaurant when the rain had died down. As we were walking from the car to the restaurant we saw a rainbow but since it was still raining and we had umbrellas in our hands we didn’t get a picture! oh well. My birthday present from katie was drinks and dinner! So nice of her. Katie got a regular margarita, Erin got a strawberry margarita and I got a TL Infusion margarita - mine had strawberry, pineapple, kiwi and some other fruits I believe. My drink was def good, but I have just decided I am not a big margarita fan. crazy I know. Dinner was delicious, I got a Chicken, Bacon, Ranch quesadilla, but the ranch was to the side and I didn’t try it haha. Erin got a Barbecue Chicken and Goat Cheese Salad and Katie got a regular salad. When we got back from dinner we watched as much of the olympics as we could before we had to leave!
To Cap off my birthday I had two amazing cakes. Instead of getting a traditional birthday cake, my mom and I baked. I made a reeses peanut butter pie and my mom made a chocolate chip cheesecake! mmmm both so good. But especially my mom’s cheesecake! I’m practically licking my lips just typing this.
I had a great birthday and I hope and believe that 22 will be a great year!
