This past weekend I celebrated my 21st birthday. It was the 6th anniversary of celebrating my 21st birthday, so it was really a big birthday for me. Turning 21 for the 7th time is really no small feat, and really must be celebrated with
cake booze and booze.
On Friday afternoon my mom flew in from Richmond, Virginia. I unfortunately had my work Christmas party that night, so I fetched her from the airport and promptly dropped her off to fend for herself with the ferocious puppies that have invaded my living quarters.
Our work party was no joke... there was an open bar, authentic Japanese sushi, an open bar, great steak, expensive saki bottles awarded as prizes and there was an open bar. I work for a Japanese company with a bunch of dudes, so you all are getting outfit selfies because my cute outfit and hair and makeup were totally wasted.
I stood up at the end and drew for a few people to win some nice bottles of Japanese Saki. Naturally, I drew my own name out of the hat, talk about getting dirty looks!!
Saturday morning, while not so gently nursing a hangover I had magically acquired, my mom and I went shopping and I picked out this gem of a sweater! I promised her I would act surprised to take it out of the bag. "Oh my gosh, this sweater is perfect! What a great present! How did you know!?"

After a day of shopping and an afternoon of yet another work event, this time at the bowling alley, I was finally work-free until Tuesday morning. My Mom and I had a weekend full of athletic events to attend, starting with the Mavs game on Saturday night. Funny story, the team we were playing was so bad, that the coach and best player, Dirk called in sick. We still had fun though! I hear we look alike...
Sunday we went to the Cowboys vs. Packers game. I got very very mad and became a raging bitch (not pictured). Let's just say that if someone had told me that it was a Packers home game, I would have believed them. I won't get into any more details because I'll cry, just like Dez.

Monday was a day of pampering, shopping and of course there was a cocktail thrown in!
Monday night we popped some champagne before we went out for fondue!

We went to a place right down the street from my apartment called Simply Fondue. I sat down and promptly asked for a dirty gin martini, per the usual...
And then the waiter said, "We don't serve liquor."
So I ordered wine.
And then the waiter said, "Sorry we ran out of wine glasses. Is this water glass ok?
That certainly didn't stop me from digging in though. As you may know I've been on a health kick, but there aren't any calories on your birthday, right?!?
How long is this post? Good lord, we haven't even gotten to my actual day of birth! I'm almost done, I promise!
On the actual anniversary of my 21st birthday, I went to Medieval Times, and it was GLORIOUS. Except I wasn't chosen as princess, nor did I receive a single rose from any of the knight games... meanie pants red and yellow knight. See if I ever root for you again, sir.....
It was the best 6th anniversary of her 21st birthday a girl could ask for!!
