I was reminiscing about birthdays past and I thought I would share a few of my favorites.
My 6th Birthday- My birthday party was at Showbiz Pizza (which was later bought out by Chuck E. Cheese).My parents woke me up super early to give me my birthday present which was a Corn Silk Hair Cabbage-patch doll. This was a huge deal to me because my doll had real hair instead of yarn hair and her name was Evelyn Amber and she shared a birthday with my best friend.
At my birthday party I got a My Little Pony Tea Party Set and I was ecstatic. It had hundreds of little piece that I'm sure my parents were thrilled about...they later became the destroyers of a vacuum. It was a wonderful day of skee-ball and cheap pizza.
My 11th birthday- I received my first CD boombox and a copy of At the Playground by Another Bad Creation. I had a sleep-over and my friends and I choreographed dances to Iesha.
My 16th Birthday- My dad was out of town and my mom let me have my very first co-ed party after a football game. We had scary movies playing the the basement and a kitchen full of food. I received the Empire Records Soundtrack, Reality Bites Soundtrack, and Lisa Loeb and the Nine Stories Album. And I was in love with Lisa Loeb! I follow her on Twitter.
And finally, My 21st Birthday- A college friend and I had the same birthday so we had a combined party at a friend's apartment. I was running late getting off work and when I got to the party it was being busted by the cops for noise violation. My 21st birthday was a little lackluster, but my mom came to visit me the next day and we went out for margaritas.
How about you, any birthday memories stick out?
