It's time to keep up our birthday week theme! Of course, it's also TREAT YO SELF Tuesday, so you probably have some idea of what I'm going to talk about--all the many ways I've treated myself in birthdays past.
2006: I'm going to start here with Freshman year--because that's when I really got into planning my birthday, and that's when I started posting pictures on Facebook, which makes it a perfect birthday to blog about. I wore a crown and was eternally captured with this face:
2007: Oh, what a memorable birthday! I had a lovely dinner with friends at T.G.I.Fridays (oddly enough, I was obsessed with friend green beans). Later that evening, I consumed two shots of rum and beat the living daylights out of a pinata. The evening was appropriately concluded with Taco Bell and a BSB dance party.
2008: The big 2-1! I did what anyone would do for their 21st birthday--I threw a Disney Princess themed party.
I dressed as Belle (obvi!), but since I was a poor college student, I settled for a yellow sundress and a crown, instead of a ballgown.
2009: This was cool--I threw a party, invited all my friends, bought a keg of Yuengling, and COULD NOT DRINK ANY OF IT because of medication I was taking for Crohn's. Womp womp. On the plus side, a group of guys did serenade me with "Love Story," so I guess that worked out.
It was also cool when this former friend of mine took me to dinner for my birthday and said she would buy me a drink--OH GEE THANKS, why don't you pay for my glass of water since I can't actually drink?!?! Cheapo friend didn't even offer to buy me dessert. NBD because I ended up throwing up later, what up Crohn's Disease!
I obviously have a lot of feelings about this birthday.
2010: I treated myself to a new haircut, new dress, and a night out with some of my best friends in DC. I also unwrapped some of my presents while sitting in a bathroom, which just seemed like the right thing to do.

|Never suspected I would be meeting my husband that evening. Also, the caption on FB for this picture reads, "It's my birthday y'all, it's pretty cool and stuff like that!" CLASSIC.|
2013: Last year's birthday was tough--it was right after I lost my grandma and I did not feel like celebrating. I kept things low key, but I did treat myself to lunch and dinner with some awesome friends.
|And we obviously spent some quality time with this sweet girl.|
How do you TREAT YO SELF for your birthday week?
