At midnight I officially turned into an old woman. I should have gotten my acceptance letter to Hogwarts 12 years ago and I should have found a secret wardrobe somewhere in the world sometime before that. Alas, none of that happened (I'm still waiting for an owl carrying a Hogwarts letter though).
My 21st birthday! I can't believe that was two years ago.
Over in the real world, I'm celebrating my birthday like a normal 23 year old, I think. If anyone cares about my day to day life, I had a combined family birthday party with my dad on Monday. I received some money and gift cards (Old Navy, Bath and Body Works, Sephora, McDonalds (perfect for my road trip to Iowa!) and Nordstrom's) plus a couple of other gifts. It was a lovely evening and I definitely enjoyed my double layer cookie cake (who knew they made those?).
Excuse the horrible picture, it was taken with a cell phone and I didn't take the lid off for some reason.
Last night, we had an old school get together with a bunch of my friends and their parents, plus a softball coach of ours who moved to California awhile ago. I spent every weekend of every summer with these girls from the age of 9 to 17. It was so nice to see everyone again!
Today, my brother gave me a gift card to Half Price Books--expect to see what I buy in a following post! Tonight, I'm going to Mad Mex for happy hour and dinner with some friends. It should be delightful!
Last time I was at Mad Mex.
On a more bookish note, so this post isn't completely pointless, I am in the middle of Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris. It is the fourth book in her Harper Connelly series and I am enjoying this one a lot more than the previous ones in the series. Hopefully this holds true for the rest of the book. I still prefer the Sookie Stackhouse novels, though.
