Hello! I’ve recently hit 1,5k followers, which I’m more than thrilled about, so this is me saying a massive thank you to everyone who’s been with me, making my tumblr experience remarkable! Thank you for always making my dash exciting, you’re awesome! Faves in bold <3
no1curr but imma tell y'all bout my birthday-ness whether you like it or not (complete with pictures!)
The big joke at our place is that I was born on Thanksgiving weekend when my parents were hosting a studio of all their art. So eeeevery year people are all I REMEMBER WHEN YOU WAS JSUT A BABEE. So my mom thought it would be hiilarious to put up this little sign on an easel and give me a birthday ribbon (I was able to talk her out of making me wear a party hat)
And for the first time in pretty much ever, it was warm enough on my birthday to have a barbecue so we used that to our advantage. So dinner was deeeeelish
AND THEN. THE BEST PIE ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET. Homemade Raspberry Cream Pie.
The custard didn’t really solidify…so the second we cut into it, it fell apart…so it sort of turned into a trifle on our plates… but i didn’t give a shit because it tasted like heaven.
And finally I couldn’t have asked for any better gifts:
-$50 in itunes gift cards. Giant music spree here i come. -MODERN FAMILY SEASON 1 & 2. This was the only thing I had hinted at that I would like either for birthday or christmas. We sat and watched the first few episodes after because my parents had never seen it. I think my mom is hooked :D -A new Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot camera. I have an ancient kodak one that is basically useless nowadays, and I LOVE my Nikon, but its not necessarily easily portable. So now I am set with a pocket camera and my art camera. And my dad doesn’t need to get me any presents for the next 5 years. lol -2 tickets to a camera show/conference. Went to one earlier this year and heard some interesting lectures so if its similar then it should be pretty cool. -AND FINALLY. WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS. DID NOT EVEN KNOW IT EXISTED. Box Set of the LION KING TRILOGY. Yepp. It is a little ridiculous because it has Blue-Ray 3D, Blue-ray, dvd, and digital copy of the original and then blue-ray and dvd of Lion King 1 ½ and 2. O_o But the box is soo cool its all artistic, and then inside is an ‘african drum’ that opens up with the dvds inside.. again over the top but who cares. My mom has been hearing me lament over the past few weeks about how I was reliving my childhood with Lion King being re-released in theatres and she remembers when i was little I ALWAYS had to have some kind of lion king connection with my birthday cakes.
I find it ironic- last year for my 20th birthday my parents got me the collectors Woody doll from Toy Story, and for my 21st they got me the movie that defined my childhood. The older I get the more my parents give me stuff that revert me back to my 6 yr old self. I am more than okay with this :D.
Oh! Also, Spark gave me her present last week..
Freaking Doctor Who poster of Van Gogh’s exploding Tardis. Hell yes.
And Thank YOU to all the lovely people who wished me a happy birthday, it was delectable :) Can’t wait to go out with ma friends when they’re all up in a few weeks :D
Now excuse me while I go watch Modern Family and eat birthday pie for breakfast like a boss.
