Here is the post that you have ALL been waiting for!! LOL
Dec 14th marked my 25th birthday!! :) Here is a overview of how [TheWeekend] was spent!!
My boyfriend told me to be ready by 5 o’clock on Saturday evening because we had somewhere to go. So, I went to the store at noon and picked out something super cute and simple to wear, and came back home to get ready! Of course, I wasn’t ready EXACTLY at 5…but we aren’t going to talk about that! (lol) We left the house at 5:15 and he wouldn’t give me any idea where we were headed. I asked over and over and over………but he wouldn’t spill the beans!
As we started to head towards Virginia Beach, about 25 minutes from home, I was totally confused! At this point, I knew guessing wasn’t going to get me anywhere so I simply stopped asking questions and enjoyed the scenery. But then, he told me to close my eyes. A few minutes afterwards, the car came to a stop and he told me to open my door so that he could guide me. After scrambling to find the handle, I opened the car door and reached out for him to grab my hand (My 1st thought was “Are you kidding me? How am I supposed to walk with my eyes closed……in heels?” But I complied). We walked for what felt like FOREVER! I tripped over a curb, my heel got caught in a crack, but he helped me with each obstacle :) THEN, he told me to walk up and open my eyes! We were at a restaurant called Captain George’s!! A AWESOME SEAFOOD BUFFET! I was super excited…..I love seafood! As we walked to the hostess stand he told the host that we were with a party and mentioned my bestie’s last name. Needless to say, I was confused!!
As she guided us around the corner to a room I saw my dad, my sisters, my best friend Nelle, and my boyfriend’s mom!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t believe it!!!!! They got me good!! My dad told me earlier in the day that him and my younger sister were going Christmas shopping, I had spoken with my bestie, Nelle, earlier in the day and my older sister lives in Charlotte, NC (My 1st thought was…”When did she get here!?”) lol!!!!!!!!! My bf’s mom met up with my family so that they could all ride together to the restaurant!! SO SNEAKY! So technically, they all lied to me……or just didn’t tell me the whole truth! ;)
I walked up to the table to give everyone hugs and then I saw…….THE CAKE!!!!!!!!!! I looked down to see a replica of a makeup cake I had shown my older sister, Sasha, MONTHS before!!! That’s when the tears started flowing!! I couldn’t believe that she even remembered I showed her that cake!
After showing everyone love, we all went to grab a few plates, or two, or three from the buffet. haha We ate, talked, laughed, and opened gifts! :) As the dinner came to a close we took a few group pictures. After preparing to head out, my boyfriend, sister, and bestie made me aware that we were going out afterwards!! I was thrilled!! We pregamed a bit at a nearby lounge and went to new club called Mansion!! I had the best time ever surrounded my sister, bestie, boyfriend, and our friend Jason! My couple friends, Erika and Ashley, came to party with us too!!
I felt like I was dreaming the whole night!! It was truly something out of a movie!! It’s such a blessing to know how much you are loved and celebrated by friends and family. I can proudly say that I am surrounded by A LOT of love!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE MY 25TH BIRTHDAY AWESOME!! For those that had intentions on coming, but couldn’t, I understand. Remember…there’s ALWAYS next year!! :)
