notice the candle falling in the front--we may or may not have burned the house down.

so let me start:

the day began at 8AM when my roommates, sarah & caroline surprised me by smashing confetti eggs on my head (there's still confetti everywhere in my room & I LOVE IT) they whisked me away to magnolia cafe where i had my favorite: a chocolate chip pancake!

caroline snuck candles to our very interesting waiter. talk about friends who go above & beyond.

afterwards i went to class & had lunch with my dear friend emily! we had a great time & she was brave enough to travel with me to party city to get these bad boys inflated.

a huge thank you to the cool lady who lets me design stuff for her, jihan zencirli! she's the coolest quasi-boss who gives the B E S T birthday gifts.

getting geronimo balloons on my birthday has been a dream of mine for... well. as long as i can remember. i told jihan (who lets me work on some of her projects! she's the coolest) i was going to order one & she sent these to me for my birthday! i'm the luckiest girl in the world.

next it was to my favorite restuarant, elizabeth street cafe, where my roommates treated me to dinner & my first drink!

after some delicious food we came back to our house where caroline & sarah surprised me with a PINATA IN THE SHAPE OF AN ICE CREAM CONE. THEY GET IT.

WOW  this was actually a lot harder than it looks...

at my house we enjoyed cake, treats, & good company of dear friends.

see that beautiful flower crown? my mom is THE COOLEST & ordered it for me from a company, bird dog wedding. it's one of the most beautiful & special gifts i've ever received.

Sarah & Caroline were incredible. I kept thanking them over & over again because I'm not sure if they realize how much it meant to me how special they made this day for me. they really are the world's greatest roommates & i'm blown away by their kindness, and overall fun personalities everyday. I laughed with my mom because the last time I had a birthday my junior year... it may have been the polar opposite. It's so cool to see God's timing.

cheers to the best year yet!!!!
