What is up guys? I am officially 21 now, and I had a really nice birthday weekend with my family and Travis.

I had to work in the morning on my actual B-Day, but I woke up to a little pile of presents on the dining room table. My loot included: a sewing machine, jelly shoes, a RADICAL necklace (from Travis), and prints from some of my fave artists.

These photos turned out a lot grainier than I wanted, but I really loved this outfit, and it was about to rain so we were rushing under the storm clouds!

We went to Goodwill, where I got this dress (I hemmed it with the new sewing machine) and to the mall where I treated myself to some fancy lipstick and new bras. On Saturday we went out to eat at one of those Japanese places where they cook the food in front of you and it all tastes delicious, and then my family surprised me by taking me to get Mindy Kahling's book that I've been wanting to read for so long!

Oh and of course I bought my first alcoholic beverage. Travis came with me to the ABC store where I got a bottle of vodka. I offered up my ID to the guy at the counter freely, and he threw in a tiny bottle of something pink with the label "Kinky" for my birthday. So that was creepy. My mom made us all peach fizzes! (Limeade + peaches + vodka in a blender) YUM.

As you can see, Trav is back from Italy and I am just pleased as punch to have him.

  3. JELLIES! I miss those.

    That dress's print is gorgeous. It looks hand-painted.

  4. Teehee, matching post titles ;) And almost matching birthdays! I so wish we lived closer so we could celebrate and drink fruity things together! I'm glad your birthday was such a success and that Travis is back. I'm super jealous you found this dress at Goodwill, it's adorable!

  5. Yay for your birthday- and for Travis being back!

    You and Elana being so excited about being legal to get alcohol is making me feel old though, lol!

  6. Your dress is so lovely!! I'm a sucker for anything floral, but I especially love the little ribbon around your waist!
