Hey Happy Birthday

Remember that time when I, in a move of unparalleled prescience, stated that I had the best friends in the entire world? (Channing is rolling her eyes SOHARD right now at ‘prescience’, I can see it.) Well, less than six hours after I made that statement here on my blog, my friends proved me right.
They threw me a surprise birthday party!!!! I love birthdays, and parties, and people gathering to eat and drink and compliment me, so this was basically the best thing they could’ve done. 29 was a birthday I was not looking forward to celebrating, and now when I look back, I’ll have this touching, sweet, kind memory of how they all came together to be there for me.
Poor Channing. Girl deserves a medal after putting up with my attempts to plan my own party. In my defense, I am a planning type of person! And even though she told me repeatedly to let her handle inviting people and etc., I didn’t want to make her do all the work for what I assumed was a simple birthday dinner. I’m sorry, Channing!!!! *humble apologies, so many humble apologies*
My roommates get a medal too, while we’re handing them out, for keeping my always-early personality a few minutes behind. As we came into the casino, we were about 10 minutes late and I was power-walking, and Jill and Erica had to slow me down so everyone could get into place. When I walked in, the first people I saw were my brother and sister, and I had a split second of total confusion before everyone yelled surprise. I couldn’t stop smiling all night long. And I led everyone in grace before the meal!
I think the reason this party touched me so much is because people took time out of their busy schedules to come and be there for me. We’re all busy, and we all don’t have a lot of extra money, and we’ve all got so many different things going on in our lives, and my friends came, and brought me presents, and cake, and made me feel so loved and special. Thanks, guys. I love you all!
Here’s a few pictures from the party:
