My 21st birthday was great. I was drinking the night before and in a bar before midnight celebrating with friends and family. I am the youngest in my family so it was a big deal for us all to share a legal drink together in a public place. I can oddly remember the night pretty well, with the help of photographs. It was a week long celebration because my birthday falls during the week of Thanksgiving so I was home for the holiday and when I went back to school I celebrated some more. I'm not sure I made it to many of my classes that week.
Anyways, yesterday was my little cousins 21st birthday. She is the youngest in the entire family. Turning 21 is huge as we're a drinking kind of family, but aren't most? I'd like to think so. Her family is throwing her a birthday party tomorrow, but because Chancho and I don't communicate all that well we double booked. His event won because he RSVPed a while before we knew of this party. Which reminds me, I need to find an outfit. We're going to his Ex-Sergeant's? old Sergeant's? His Sergeant before this Sergeant's wedding.
I'm super bummed about not making this party so I'm going to visit her tonight for dinner. I finished getting the gift together this morning: 6 wine glasses from Crate & Barrel. A wine saver pump and cork screw from the Container Store.
She's all set to go to drink her wine! Too bad I'm awful at picking out good wine. Any suggestions??
