I intended to solely have my ‘Birthdays’ post covering my birthday, but since I had a lot of fun this weekend, I wanted to write a post about some of my birthday favorites!
I turned 24, so in regards to that, it wasn’t that much of a milestone for me. I do feel like 2019 is going to bring some positive changes to my life, so maybe being 24 will be a good thing!
While I’ve gone to tournaments on the weekend after my birthday, this year was the first time I had a tournament on my actual birthday. It was a fun experience! I scored a few goals, watched some games, and spent most of the day outside. My team didn’t win it all and came in second, but I still enjoyed it. I also really love traveling. While I didn’t get to explore the area, it was fun driving and actually going somewhere. I get tired of being in the same town all of the time, so the change of scenery was nice.
Birthday Dinner (x2)
#1: After the tournament, I went to Mellow Mushroom with some teammates. They sung happy birthday to me when our server brought over a brownie topped with ice cream, and I had a great time. I feel like I normally shy away from team dinners, but I’m glad I decided to go! I was still more on the quiet side, but I did engage in some of the conversations that were happening all around me. Hopefully this will make me feel more comfortable going to more team dinners in the future!
#2: On Sunday, my parents wanted to take me out to dinner. We decided to go to Olive Garden. I enjoyed celebrating with them, and I got even more free dessert! I got to pick my favorite-the Black Tie Mousse Cake. It was very chocolatey!
I need to rewatch some Marvel movies before End Game comes out. I actually wasn’t obsessed with superheroes prior to college, so I never added the first Iron Man movie to my collection. I also tend to be on Team Cap, so Iron Man was a character that I initially didn’t care that much for. He’s definitely grown on me a lot though, so I’m rewatching his movies.
I have read and watched plenty of raving reviews about Colourpop, so I’m excited to FINALLY try out a few of their products! For my birthday I received one of their lipsticks and one of their eyeshadows. The lipstick was ‘Ariel’ (one of my favorite princesses) from the Disney Designer Collection. The eyeshadow is called “Light Up”.
