Much has been going on in my lovely little life since I last checked in on the day of my 24th.
And where better to begin than where I left off....
So as I had mentioned, this lady came in to see me for my birthday. Yeah, she's still phenomenal.
She got in Friday night from Austin and the great Claude and Jenny were kind enough to let us partake in their hamburgers at their casa.
We sat outside and caught up for a long time until Claude hastled us. He very casually (wink*wink) reminded us about our fishing excursion that would be taking place the following morning and the truck would be pulling out promptly at 6 A.M. So much for extended happy hour (it was 12 A.M. ;)
So like we had planned me and Little Tobin woke up at 5 in the morning for our way too early trip. We made it to Claude and Jenny's on time (6:05, you get a 5 min grace period) only to wait on this guy. Gees.
Erin and I climbed in the back seat and off we all went, minus Jenny who decided to be way UN-cool and sleep, BOOO!!!!! ;)
Anyway, we didn't make it far before we needed to get gas and a big glass of milk (cough cough..beer). The girls were much more concerned/disappointed when we found out you can't buy beer in Denton until 7 A.M., or is that everywhere? This obviously proves we aren't true alcoholics, although we felt like one when we asked about beer purchases before the sun had even come up.
Anyway, no beer.
In the truck and off we went.
But wait....the lake is about 30 minutes away perhaps there's still a chance.
We arrive at the second convenient store at approximentally 6:48 A.M. As I stood in line for what seemed like eternity with one of my bestest and a case of Tecate I almost felt embarrassed until I thought, 'Hey, it's my 24th birthday and I can do what I want!'
At 7:15 (give or take a few minutes) that first beer was cracked open, there was a fishing pole in my hand, good friends on the boat and life was officially sweet. :)
The adventure turned out cold and windy so we headed back early after only catchin' a few.
Erin and I worked diligently on the best spiked lemonade ever for the bbq later than evening before heading to my casa for a few lazy hours of catching up by the pool with one old friend in particular. Erin enjoyed an ice cold Budlight while I enjoyed some ole Tecate.
As our alarm went off for the nap we were supposed to take we decided to say screw it, no nap. More beverages.
We headed to Jenny and Claude's for the bbq where I was so excited to get some of my closest friends from different places all together. And they meshed so well. It couldn't have gone better.
One special little lady was there and I have to admit she stole the show for a bit but she's so stinkin' adorable I didn't even get upset. ;)
So with great company, outrageously delicious food and a little flip cup and beer pong later in the night I felt like a pretty lucky lady that I have such great friends to help celebrate my 24th year. Here are a few priceless pics from the occasion.
My 25th birthday doesn't stand a chance. 24 was fabulous!
