Yesterday was my 21st birthday!  Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday!  I was overwhelmed by all the sweet comments.  I spent the night out to dinner with my family and my boyfriend, Craig where I ordered my first legal drink!  It was a Caribbean Cooler from the Cheesecake Factory and it was really good!  We then headed home where we had the amazing Barbie cake pictured above that was made by my best friend, Allie.  She goes to school for Baking & Pastry and she’s incredibly talented!  See more of her work HERE!  I didn’t really celebrate with my friends yesterday, so we’re going to get together this saturday instead.  We’re going roller skating and then out for drinks and I can’t wait!

Here are 21 things that i’ve learned by 21!

1.) I’d rather have five amazing best friends, than 500 just sorta okay friends.

2.) The older you get, the faster time flies ( UGH SLOW DOWN TIME).

3.) You don’t have to have EVERYTHING already figured out.

4.) Going to bed early is suddenly so much cooler than it used to be.

5.) If you don’t do dishes or laundry, you won’t have dishes or laundry.

6.) The qualities you look for in a partner will change (probably for the better).

7.) Investing in good quality clothing and accessories is important.

8.) Unless you want to solely eat cereal you need to have some cooking skills.

10.) It’s okay to let go of people who aren’t making you feel happy.

11.) Put the most effort into things that you’re passionate about.

12.) Surround yourself with positive people and you will feel positive.

13.) Radiating confidence is the most beautiful thing you can do.

14.) Be with someone who loves you for you.

15.) If you have to chase somebody, they probably aren’t worth chasing.

16.) Your parents were right about a lot.

17.) You are incredibly embarrassed of your teenage self…but so is everyone!

18.) College is a lot of work, but it’s so worth it.
