31 Years Ago Today . . .

I was born!  I can't believe I am 31 today- I will admit that I like being in my thirties - my twenties were pretty crazy for me.
It is really strange to think that 10 YEARS AGO I turned 21?!?
I remember it - sort of?!? I was a lot different then . . .
I remember going to a bar in West Chester called 15 North to celebrate. It was a big place with 2 floors & high ceilings. This moose was on the wall?
This is me and my sister-she drove that night!(she is the BEST:)
That night Bam Magera showed up with Don Vito.
Don Vito was dressed as Elvis and Bam was making  him take as many shots of Blackberry Brandy as he could. I remember clearly taking a shot with him. Classy I know;)
I remember the band singing happy birthday to me when I was in the bathroom -lol! & again later when I was on stage!
I also remember meeting a guy named Sean . . . but forgetting the part when I gave him my number. Until he called the next day & asked me out to dinner! We went on a few dates - he was really nice. But I was a newly single 21 year old & didn't want anything serious. 

I am in no way proud of being a wild drunk birthday girl. But at the time that is who I was . . . & it is awesome to see how much God changed my life in the last 10 years! He took these crazy times & made them part of my testimony today! He is so Good:)

Have a Great Tuesday - maybe I should go look up that Sean on Facebook;)

Loved this! LOL at Sean! I was a wild party girl in my early twenties. I think I spent 1/2 of my 21st birthday in the bathroom at a bar puking- CLASSY as well! God is good and love that He helped us get to where we are now, lol!

CUTE pics, you and your sister are GORGEOUS and adorable!

31 is pretty awesome! I'm spending it pregnant, but still, it's awesome. ;)
