February 8th was my 23rd birthday! And I must say that this has probably been the best birthday ever. It was an entire day filled with fun activities! (Yay for birthdays falling on Saturday!) Since my new goal has been to take more photos, I tried to document all the fun moments of my birthday adventure.
I had a party Friday evening and my mom made these super cute drinks. I don't exactly remember what was in it, but I'm pretty sure it involved cranberry juice and wedding cake flavored vodka.
Instead of a cake I had delicious brownies with frosting.
We started my birthday morning off with a trip to McDonalds for an egg and cheese biscuit and a hazelnut iced coffee. I am obsessed with those coffees..
Next it was time to do one of our favorite activities of driving around and exploring. We set out to find a creepy place we found about a year ago while exploring.
Found the creepy place! Looks like they were building an entrance to a fancy neighborhood but then abandoned it.
After that we checked out some antique stores.
*Wait a minute... What's that in the corner...*
IT'S A LAND CAMERA.
I have been wanting one of these for a while now and I was just telling everyone the night before how much I really wanted one. I was so excited! The downside is that they stopped making this film in 1992 and it's really hard to find. And expensive!! But I'll probably give it a shot, just to see how it comes out. I still would like to get a slightly newer version of the land camera that you can still but film for. But this guy is in perfect shape!
After all the camera excitement it was time to bake lavender lemon cupcakes with my mom. I took a bunch of photos that I'll share along with the recipe later.
For dinner Steven and I went out for Thai food. We shared a shrimp and vegetable curry and sticky rice with ice cream for dinner.
We ended the day with a bag of yummy Indian snacks!
