18!

Yesterday was my 18th birthday and it was SUCH a good day! Just thought I'd share some pictures from my last birthday at HOME!!! (and since I never really post about what's going on with me on here!) As excited as I am for college, that realization does make me pretty sad. The fam and my friends made my 18th a very special one though! :) Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes on Face*book and the emails. They meant a ton!





Here are my friend Sadie and I at breakfast in the morning! Her family is basically my second family and her mom makes us breakfast every morning before school. We always have such good breakfasts and so much fun. Yesterday's menu was chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream and strawberries!
Everyone at my school is paired with a buddy in lower school and yesterday was their fun run! We got to get out of classes and cheer for them and it was tons of fun. Here are some of my friends and our cute little T-k buddies!

There's nothing like having classes shortened so that we can go in the gym, listen to music, and cheer for the little kids! :)
My friend Blair made me a cake and it was delicious. Decorated in Au*burn colors of course :)

Mom and the kiddos brought me lunch and balloons and then we started our cat dissecting lab in anatomy.. definitely a part of my birthday I could've done without :)
I picked a new sushi/burger restaurant for dinner and it was DELICIOUS! Here are the girls and I at dinner with my birthday present and cards!
The little kiddos and I... I'm going to miss them SO much next year!
Dad and I!
There was cake, of course, made and decorated by Mom and the kids with heart sprinkles "so I'd feel loved." This is my favorite cake EVER and it was especially good last night after going three weeks with no sweets!

So it was a very good birthday :) It feels good to be an ADULT!
