Hello and happy Thursday lovlies! What has changed about me since I’ve last posted? I am officially 21, wahooo! 🙂
Yesterday was my 21st birthday and I can’t believe how fast it came! It feels like just yesterday I graduated high school and it was really 3 years ago.. how time flies!
Right at midnight I went to a bar close to home and brought in my 21st with all my best friends, my sister, and my boyfriend! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of friends, boyfriend, or sister to spend it with because it was absolutely amazing! I had such a great time!
Of course I took wayy too many shots but that’s how your 21st birthday should be because you’re officially legal and you deserve to celebrate!

I woke up on my actual birth Day with a little hangover but I didn’t let it stop me from starting my day off right and having a great day!
I started it by going to lunch with my co-workers at 11 at the Cheesecake Factory, enjoyed a nice lunch, a pina colada, and a birthday cheesecake which was delicious!
After my sister and I went exploring downtown around the Pearl Brewery which is a cool trendy place with different boutiques, restaurants, an ice cream shop, a coffee shop, and a bakery with lots of yummy macaroons, sandwiches, and pastries.
I had never tried Macaroons before and was eager to try them so we stopped in Bakery Lorraine and I got a pistachio one and an earl grey. The pistachio one was super delicious and the earl grey was little different.. it tasted literally like fruit loops cereal with milk, it was very unique! lol

After we went to check out Local Coffee which is this super cute and trendy coffee place only here in San Antonio
My cousins work at a restaurant and brewery called Southerleigh and its really awesome because the restaurant is down on the bottom and at the top they have the brewery. We were able to take a tour of the brewery and learn all about how they make the beer they serve which was awesome!

Later on once my dad got off of work we went to go eat at Carrabbas Italian Restaurant and after dinner they sang to me and brought out this delicious ice cream dessert with honey and candy almonds
Then once we were done with dinner my boyfriend and I went back to his house so we could celebrate with his family. They made me an amazing cake and gave me my gifts.
His mom got me workout gear since we are always working out and my boyfriend got me a little stuffed lion because we are obsessed with them, they are our favorite animals besides dogs lol. He also surprised me with tickets to the J.Cole concert in Austin coming up next month on the 22nd.
Just a little about me, J.Cole is my all time favorite rapper I first saw him perform in October of 2014 with my friends in Austin and I also met him too because I bought the meet & greet tickets. He was honestly the most humble artist I’ve ever met and he really took the time to talk to me and get to know me for about 5 minutes..I fell in love ❤ lol. The second time I saw him was this past May when he came to San Antonio, my friend and I literally camped out starting at 8am that morning to be front row during his concert like we were for his concert in Austin even though his concert didn’t start until 7 pm lol we are die hard fans but he deserves it for being the kind, humble man he is.
Soo, yes it was a huge deal for my boyfriend to get me tickets to see him again and its the weekend right after I start school so it’ll definitely be a nice little get away before going back to school for a whole 5 months!
The celebration isn’t over yet!
I am sooo excited for this weekend my boyfriend, my friends, and some of my sorority sisters are going to Austin, Texas to go celebrate my birthday down on 6th street (The entertainment district), which if you haven’t heard is the place to turn up lol there are a bunch of bars all down the street and its going to be so much fun! If you’ve heard of SXSW which I hope you have, a lot of the artists go perform at different venues down 6th. Aside from that we are going to adventure Saturday during the day and then Sunday before we leave to go back home.
I’m so ready for this exciting weekend and I will definitely share with you my experiences when I come back and recover from the weekend lmao
