In anticipation of a new decade, I thought I would look back through the past 9 birthdays (if I can find pictures of each one!) to recap... I used to be a mad scrapbooker, so some of these photos are scanned from books and are pretty heavily cropped; you'll get the idea, though.
20th Birthday: 2001
21st Birthday: 2002
|Okay, I definitely know who all of these people are, I am just not quite sure what we are doing. Check out the X on my hand... yep, that's what they do at Penn State for your 21st birthday so you can't take any shots|
22nd Birthday: 2003
Can't find any pictures from this birthday. This was shortly after I moved to VA, and I didn't know many people, so I am guessing I didn't have much of a party to take pictures of!
23rd Birthday: 2004
|This was a fun joint birthday party where all things started with D... Desserts, Doorprizes, Dominoes, you name it. Why do we have blue lips? Your guess is as good as mine!|
24th Birthday: 2005
|This was definitely the most embarassing birthday thus far. Too many cocktails is definitely bad news.|
Sadly, I can't find pictures from this birthday, either. I know my sister came down, and the party was at Jen Heywood's house. I got a HUGE red card... all my friends chipped in and paid for a trip to Stonehenge, as I was going to London a few weeks later. Since I can't find the picture of the party, I'll toss in a London picture for good measure (they were only 2 weeks apart!)
26th Birthday: 2007
For the life of me, I cannot find a picture from this birthday. I know I wore a short sleeve back sweater and black and white pants. I know we had dinner at Magiano's and Amy Egoville had to drive me because my car broke down. The pictures seem to be MIA...
27th Birthday: 2008
27th Birthday: 2008
|Extremely wild hair... joint birthday party at the Melting Pot with Courtney|
28th Birthday: 2009
|Yep- we had a bridesmaid Bash for this party... 'nuff said|
29th Birthday: 2010
|Skirt: Anthropologie, summer 2010|
Belt: Anthropologie, winter 2009
Cardigan: J. crew, circa 2009
Necklace: Ann Taylor Loft, Fall 2010
For extra measure, here are birthday socks I got a few years ago from my friend, Raechel. I try to wear them at some point during my birthday week, if not on the actual day:
All leading up to the main event... stay tuned to see the 2011 Birthday Outfit!
