I slept in till ten and then went downstairs and read my birthday cards. Presents included birthday money from Grandparents, Chanel red lipstick from my Mom, (it's SO FANCY), a gift card to Anthropologie from my Dad, and I will be getting a new peacoat at Macys when they go on sale. I have some other gifts from Deon and some of my friends coming as well.

I then sat around some more and watched Love Actually until about 6:30 when Katie picked me up. She and my other childhood friend Ashley took me to the Green Parrot Pub for my first legal drink. I ordered an Irish honey which has whiskey in it. It was okay, but to be honest I loved the food sampler we got a lot more. Their spinach dip and wings were AMAZING. :P Leave it to me to love the food more! The Green Parrot is a super cute place and I love it, but there was an Eagles game going on and it was extremely loud, so the three of us ended up walking down the street to Isaac Newton's where I downed four shots, and a beer. The first shot I hated it tasted like Robitussin, but after that I had a Baby Guinness shot which was basically Baileys and Kahlua, and it was incredible. I wanted to keep downing the stuff but I forced myself to stop and end the evening with a beer. Ashley and Katie treated me like a queen and gave me a birthday sash and a shot necklace haha. They paid for everything and made it a really fun experience.

I ended the evening finishing Love Actually and drifting off to sleep. I woke up perfectly fine with no headaches. I wish Deon and a lot of my school friends had been able to be with me, but I am so glad Katie and Ashley took the time to take me out and celebrate with me. I love when my birthday is, but since it's so close to Christmas it can be hard to coordinate plans.
