So I turned 21!
All in all it was a great birthday.
Brittany, my cousin and BFF, came up from Utah for the weekend which was a birthday treat in and of itself since I haven't seen her since my wedding.
I got free dessert from The Hickory (my favorite local BBQ) and Outback. Plus Brittany and I made macaroons and Bjorn made me my birthday cake tradition: German chocolate with coconut frosting. Plus Bjorn bought me A POUND of English Toffee, my favorite candy, and had it shipped from Bruce's Candy Kitchen in Oregon (where he used to work).
I ate like a queen and probably gained 5 pounds, but I wouldn't know since I've been avoiding the scale (A continuous birthday gift to myself, I suppose).
I got cards and calls and texts from my newly enlarged family! I'm touched that all my new relatives were so thoughtful of my birthday.
I expect 21 to be an exciting year!
