My Approaching Birthday - Eep!

It's my birthday this weekend! I am turning 22, but celebrating my 21st and I am SO nervous.

Birthdays to me are disappointing and a non-event, so I try not to make a big deal out of them. Where did this derive from? You may ask. That fateful day on my 9th Birthday Party. I was new in town and all the cool kids were invited. Dad had planned the whole thing for me, and when it came to pass the parcel I was mortefied. Not only was it wrapped in newspaper, there was not treats in every layer, and at the very centre was a used Mc Donalds happy meal toy. All the girls passed it around the table because no one wanted to win it. I was let down, and bawled my eyes out. Then, on my 15th, my birthday was forgotten because my older sister was going on a holiday to Thailand. But I don't hold that against her ;)

Previous birthday celebrations...

My dear dear Chlo-izzle, who always attempted to make my birthdays a good one. This photo was taken outside Drexels where we planend to celebrate, however I had a stomach bug and couldn't eat anything without rushing to the toilet. She later turned this photo into a sepia canvas for the following christmas for me!

 My first birthday with Graeme :)

 My sweet sweet mexican fiesta at the Mex Cafe (where we will be going to again this weekend)

And lastly, my 21st last year.

Since I vetoed all of Graeme's plans last year to throw me a bash with all of my friends I have since allowed him another shot of celebrating my presence in this world. We are going to the Roller DERBY! I am combining my love of all my friends and my love of dressing up and my love of Cosmopolitans and Pineapple and Mango Margaritas to celebrate a belated 21st! :)

I am super excited, and super nervous. I hope you come so I don't feel like a "no friend sophie"!! 

There will be no used McDonalds happy meal toys. I promise.
