Happy Birthday to ME!

Whooo...the day is here, February 26th, and I am officially 16 years old! Today is the day where I am legally old enough to get my drivers permit so watch out, LOL! In my house, my birthday is like a holiday and we celebrate days and days after it ends. Since it is a Thursday I do not have much planned after school except maybe some light shopping and celebration. All of my main festivities will come this weekend! 

I've always enjoyed attending Sweet 16's, but I never wanted one of my own. I hate excluding people and there is always going to be someone who gets upset because they did not receive a coveted invite. Also, I think there are better ways to spend the money. So with that, I decided to go on great vacation instead this summer with family. For now, I will still have a "Suite" Sixteen party at a hotel with my closet friends. This way we will get to swim indoor in February, while it is below zero degrees outside and have a blast. I thought it would be much more fun celebrating with a few close friends who care for you and enjoying designer cupcakes, a candy buffet (including macarons of course!), movies, and spa treatments. 

Then with the huge amount of family I have, I will be going to NYC this weekend and having dinner at a hibachi restaurant, which is my ultimate favorite! I feel so blessed and I am definitely looking forward to everything coming up during my big year. Thank you to everyone sending all of the birthday you all so much <3

  6. First, Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a great time at your "suite" sixteen party. That is a brilliant idea! You're guaranteed to have a better time spending your birthday with a few close friends than the entire school, and you had macaroons so that's a double win!
