what?! tornados aren't allowed on your birthday!
Apparently East Tennessee did not get that memo and decided to invite one in yesterday. Lets just say having the power go out from 6 until 7 when your dinner plans start at 630 and you have a movie date 730 is no good. But, lets start back at the beginning. My wonderful mother picked me up to go tennis shoe shopping (because I was in desperate need of a new pair, and thats what I asked for). I picked up a pair of asics, since they came so highly recommended by all you lovely gals they looked a little something like this:
I love them and I can not wait to try them out. Maybe today?!
Also, I think my college knew it was my birthday as well, because they decided to send me a little present in the mail as well.
Its my diploma! isnt it fancy?!
After an exciting day of shoe shopping my mom and I went to lunch. We decided to try this new place that just opened up called Jack's Grill. I had a turkey wrap that was only OK, but the atmosphere in the restaurant was really cool.
There is my lovely mom sitting across from me. Note: all of my friends call her "the leave it to beaver mom" haha. See any resemblance?
After lunch I went home and laid around with my roomie for a while. I was supposed to go out to my fave sushi restaurant but in the middle of getting ready a little tornado decided to join the party and the power went out. There was no way for me to get ready in the dark, so I just threw on a sweatshirt for the movie and had dinner at home. My roomate and my friend Tanya went to see Hes Just Not That Into You. It was sooo cute and I remembered how much I loved Jennifer Connely because she was the star of this little gem, that I watched religiously as a child.
The Labryinth. It was her first movie and also starred David Bowie. If you havent seen it, do yourself a favor and rent it TONIGHT! :)
Anyways, after the movie I met up with some friends to play a little pool.
It was a really fun birthday and I would like to thank everyone for the sweet birthday wishes. You girls are great and I love you! <3 Ems
