Birthday Shenanigans

As most of you know, I recently turned 21.
I came home to a bathtub full of balloons, a tiara, 21st bday beads and shot glasses with a happy birthday sign.

My birthday was on a Monday (not the best bar night.. but we made it work)
Sunday night I went to Y-bar with my friends. Jeri and Tim even showed up in their work clothes! Everyone was buying me birthday drinks/shots and these seem to be the ones that I can remember (I decided to google what was in them)

  • Dirty Girlscout- coffee liqueur, Irish cream liqueur, peppermint schnapps
  • Washington Apple- canadian whiskey, sour apple schnapps, cranberry juice
  • Tequila shot- Tequila (Thanks ALOT Megan...) 
  • Three Wise Men- Johnnie Walker, Jim Beam , Jack Daniel's (not to be confused with "three wise men visit mexico" where Jose Cuervo is added) 
  • white gummy bear- cherry vodka, peach schnapps, pineapple juice, sprite
  • tootsie roll shot-vodka, coffee liqueur and orange juice

I had a good time at the bar, but had a rough Monday.

My best friends from Westland came to continue the celebration on Saturday. I was SO happy to see 
them all! My mom sent an awesome cake for me too :)

They all brought me presents too :) (I can't believe we still get each other birthday presents) I'm glad though... because I loved them! Thanks guys! As you can see, I was very excited to open my gifts. The hoodie I'm wearing was from Jake!

Among the gifts was tickets to the Michael Jackson Immortal Tour-Cirque du Soleil. I'm so excited! I've never been to a cirque du soleil show :) I'm going on the 15th (after Carrie's baby shower, which I'm also excited about.)

We all went to the Library Taphouse on Saturday.

Me and Amy have been doing the School of Rock handshake since it came out. Nobody ever knows what we're talking about so I posted the video clip from the movie. 

  I had a great time and was SO happy that they had a dance floor. There were even some ex-k10 employees there :) it was great seeing them.  I was a little too excited to dance, because I fell while I was out on the dance floor. Don't worry,, my face caught my fall. FYI, face injuries bleed a lot! The manager got me some ice and a washcloth so it didn't swell up that bad. When we got back to the apartment Jake goes "I'm an eagle scout! I've been waiting for something like this to happen!" (at least someone was excited haha) He got my first aid kit out and fixed me up. 

(notice the band aid?)

I went to the Red Wings game with Kelly, Jessica and Mikey on Sunday. Before the game we stopped at the Post bar. There were signatures all over and business cards pinned up too. Kelly made the bartender put my business card up on the ceiling and I signed my name on a game in the bar. After the game, my friend Garrett who was visiting from Tennessee showed up at the Post with his friend Steve and I made them sign their names there too. We all had a great time at the game and it didn't hurt that we got the tickets for free and we won! (Thanks again Jenny) 

Sorry it took me so long to post this. I didn't feel like uploading pictures until now :)
