So it happened. I turned 21. It was kind of a weird feeling all day, because guess what? Emmilie Buchanan has entered the realm of "adult." Weird. Whatever, it's just a title. I'll still act the way I want to. It's fine. So on this day of achievement... or something... Shanae and I went on an adventure. We walked to Perkins... where the President eats.... and had glorious omlets. Shanae told our server, we'll call her Bev, that it was my birthday, and she gave me a giant chocolate muffin. It was divine. Bev then asked me how old I was. I told her it was the big 21, and she asked if I was going to go crazy tonight. I smiled, told her no, and explained that I don't drink. She looked highly shocked, stuttered over, "Oh, w-w-ell that's g-g-good," and walked away with a baffled look on her face. To this, I laughed out loud. I heart the word of wisdom.
After breakfast, we ran over to Downtown Disney and checked out the beach shop, looked longingly at the Ray Bans, and got a little too close to buying half of the Roxy merchandise. Then Shanae and I continued our journey to Hollywood Studios. We were in dire need of water, so we hit up the nearest kiosk where this nice boy named Oliver gave me a free cookie for my birthday. What a stud. It helped that I had a happy birthday button on. It's fine. Then we rode tower of terror, and I'm pretty sure that Shanae almost had an aneurism. It's fine. Then, on our way to the bar another nice boy named Philipe called us over, and gave us free ice cream. Love being a girl, knowing how to work the girlish charm, and getting free stuff. It's great.
So, it was my 21 birthday, so naturally we needed to go to a bar. It had to happen. Oh, don't worry. We ordered Shirley Temples. And it was amazing. The bar tender laughed at us a little bit, and looked a little put out, but she was pregnant- which could have been why. (And yes, I too find it a little ironic that she was pregnant and tending the bar. It's fine.) Then it was off to dinner at Sweet Tomatoes where we met Hannah, Jared and Brett, and I ate more salad than is probably healthy, but I loved every minute. I heart Sweet Tomatoes. And props to Jared and Brett for eating there. Thanks dudes.
After dinner and lots of laughter we headed over to Hannah's casa for a pool party. It was great fun. Then we ate cake, and almost passed out from exhaustion. All in all it was a glorious day. I heart birthdays.
Beautiful flowers from my Mamma!
Lovin' those Shirley Temples...
Thank you, and goodnight.
