Yes I said celebrationS. My birthDAY is really more like a birthday WEEK and then maybe a little more! I'm one of those people that loves their birthday! Any one's birthday, really. I think they're just so fun, no matter how old you're turning! Most people say, "Oh wait til you turn __ (fill in the blank) and you won't think it's so great!" but I think I'll always like my birthday, even as I get up there in age ;)
My birthday fell on a Wednesday this year, so the weekend before, Brandon and I drove down to Greenville, SC for our first baseball game of the season. Michigan St. was playing Furman at Fluor Field in Greenville so we thought it would be a fun little overnight trip. Brandon gave me my gift Friday night before we left the next day so I could put it to good use. It was a new camera!! Mine has been on the outs for a while so I was very excited! It has lots of cool features, like a touch screen and the ability to take panoramics.
|Cool panoramic of downtown Greenville!|
|We stopped in a cool restaurant called The Tap Room to grab a drink before the game. We didn't eat there, but their menu looked awesome, so I recommend it if you're in the area!|
|We ate at a yummy Mexican restaurant for dinner! Here I am with a pretty large margarita :)|
|Court and I at a Loco Lime! (I like Mexican food if you can't tell!)|
|'Bout to get our bowl on!|
|Good ol' George Pappa's Bowling Alley! Been going here since I was a kiddo :)|
|Action shot! Clearly I'm an awesome bowler and I'm not about to miss my 3 pins still standing!|
|My friends Lisa and Dana!|
|Haha, not the best picture of Andrea and I (and thanks a lot Greg!), but you can kinda see our nails :)|
|Brandon and Justin!|
24! Definitely feels a little different this year. Sounds older than 23 in my head. When people ask you your age and you say 23, they think you're fresh out of college and still a young thang (even though I graduated college at 21 a whole semester early, because I'm quite scholarly clearly!). But when you say 24, that's mid twenties, they might even think you're close to 25 cause they have no clue when you actually turned 24! It may indeed be older, but 24 feels good so far and I'm enjoying the ride! Here's to many more!
Happy Weeknd y'all!!
