I haven't blogged for a while and I thought, turning 21 is the perfect way to come back to my blog.
First of all, turning 21 almost felt surreal. I've felt older than 21 for almost 2 years, that actually being legal was almost kind of like, "shouldn't I have been doing this for a while now?"
My day started out with a delicious breakfast in bed, thanks to my man, and a full day off. My mom also surprised me by coming over and taking me out to lunch where I got my first (legal) margarita!
The night was great as well. I did the traditional "bar crawl". It wasn't much of a crawl, though, because I didn't want to get wasted! It's so funny that 3 years ago when thinking about my 21st, I was out til all hours of the morning and drinking every last drop. Now, all I could think about was getting to bed when midnight rolled around, and although I did drink plenty, I knew when to stop so I wouldn't be hungover this morning. Being hungover and taking care of a toddler is *not* a good plan, ha!
So anyway, my friends and I went out to a couple of bars. At one, they gave me a birthday hat and a free drink for the next time I went in. They were all so much fun, except for one place that was having a "party night" but really it was just a couple table of Asian people who were singing karaoke. And our "lemon drop" shots weren't really legit lemon drops, haha. It's ok, I'm so glad I had friends with me who showed me a good time!
I'm so glad I got to go out for my 21st and get away from my "mommy duties" for one night.
How did you spend your 21st? Or what are you planning to do for it?
