My 21st Birthday

I have started off as a really bad blogger, but I really hope to get better at blogging more soon!! :) This past Monday was my 21st birthday and I had an absolute blast!! On Sunday, even though it was Mother's Day, my mom was fine with doing the birthday thing with the family then. My brother grilled some chicken and pineapples and was oh soooo good!! :) After dinner, we ate birthday cake, which was homemade...of course! And then I got my Alvarez guitar!! I was sooo excited!! I have been wanting to learn to play for years and now I finally get to!!

The funny thing about my birthday is that one of my best friends, Becca, has the same birthday...we say we are birthday twins! For lunch, Becca and I went to Parota (a Mexican restaurant in Troy) with our littles in our sorority. We had a great time and I got to buy my first drink...which was really weird!

Later on that night, some of us went to Buffalo's (another locally owned restaurant in Troy) to start off the night! It was great to hang out with some of our sorority sisters! After we left Buffalo's, there was a surprise party for Becca and I!! It was a great way to end the night!! And I was so happy with seeing some people that I don't get to see very often!!

So, all in all, I had an amazing 21st birthday if you couldn't tell! :))

Top 3 Thursday: Outdoor Activities

Now that finals are over with, I'm going to be blogging more so maybe now Brett can get off my back about it!! But, I'm going to start back by doing Top 3 Thursday and this week it's your top 3 outdoor activities! I got really excited when I saw this, because I enjoy being outside as much as possible!! :)

#3 Swimming

I have always enjoyed swimming. I learned at a very young age, and's a great workout!

#2 Canoeing/Kayaking

I absolutely loooove canoeing and kayaking!! I don't have as much experience kayaking but I hope to work on that this summer!! :)

#1 Playing tennis

I don't get to go out and play as much as I wish I could, but I sure do love playing tennis!! I started playing when I was 15, and I have loved it ever since!!

So, I know this isn't that great of a post but I promise I will have more to say soon!!
