This post is way delayed… (my birthday was six days ago!)
While most teenagers celebrate their birthdays as “one year closer to the legal drinking age!”, that’s not me. Instead, I came to the realization on my birthday that I only have one more year until I can join a gym without my parents!
What is wrong with me? 😉
Anyway, my seventeenth birthday was pretty uneventful. It was a snow day, so I didn’t see any of my friends, and I pretty much couldn’t go anywhere. I went for a short run (surprise!) at the local community center, watched Psych for much of the afternoon, and went out to dinner with my family at Silver Diner.
I waited all day for my Chunky Monkey milkshake; needless to say, I was pretty excited when I finally got it.
I had a huge craving for salmon, but the restaurant I really wanted to go to was booked because (duh) it was Valentine’s Day. So I “settled” for Silver Diner, which had both salmon and chunky monkey milkshakes.
My dog was not cooperative when I asked to take a birthday selfie with him. He was more interested in the squirrels hanging out in the tree outside.
Sunday was my actual celebration; a few friends and I went to The Melting Pot for fondue and then came back to my house to have a baking party!
