Birthday Recap

Hello, guys!

So, I know I promised a full recap “later”… but I surely didn’t plan to postpone that for so long! Unfortunately, now that classes have started and school’s pretty much taking over my life, I had no time to update you at all… But I’m considering going back to the blogging bandwagon. Reading you guys’ blogposts makes me want to do the daily post thing again too 🙂

Anyway, I’ll save that for later. Now, a February 9th 2011 recap!

*** Beware: this post is full of “:)”. But believe me, I was truly happy and I meant every happy face 🙂 ***

I actually started celebrating my birthday on February 8th, my 16th birthday’s eve. Well, kind of… I stayed up late so I could celebrate my last minute as a 15 year-old girl and my first as a 16 year old (woman? haha). Does that count?

I went to bed a little later. Then, I woke up by 5:40am (I know, tough routine!) and sang “Happy Birthday” to myself over breakfast. But not before “printscreening” my iTouch Lock Screen. Just to make sure I’d remember that date and hour for a really long time 🙂


(Quarta-Feira means Wednesday, and Fevereiro means February… just to clarify, haha)



Gotta love my brithday breakfast of choice! CMIAJ (Cereal Mess In A Jar!) 🙂

I wasn’t even half-way through eating my beloved cereal+PB combo when Mom appeared… With Baby Mig on her hands! I wanted her to take a picture with me, but she refused. Too bad… Even though she barely slept that night, she always looks awesome 😉

So I went to school. It was the 3rd day of classes, which means not everyone remembered. But my close friends came to hug me and wish me a happy birthday. Even though I had to face 2 hours of physics, I was a happy girl 🙂

I came home to have lunch with Mom and Stepfather. It was amazing, they prepared all my favourites! I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday lunch 🙂

Right after lunch, Mom and I went to the mall to buy me some clothes – I needed something to wear at my dinner party! I found the most amazing skirt, and left the mall with a huge smile.

Upon coming back, I went out again to buy a slice of whole wheat banana pie (aka my favourite dessert EVER) so we could sing “Happy Birthday” with Baby Mig. He wasn’t allowed to attend my dinner party… considering he’s a 4-month old baby :/

The lady at the counter was so sweet… she asked me why so many people called/sent me messages and why I couldn’t stop smiling. I told her it was my 16th birthday, so she insisted on “surprising” me. I left her while I payed for the pie and, when I came back, I saw this:


CUTE! She wrapped it and gave it to me with the biggest smile on her face. So sweet 🙂

We sang “Happy Birthday” and took a few pictures. That’s where last post’s photo was taken 😉


Blowing the candles!


Birthday “cake”

Right after that, I had to run. I took a shower, got dressed, put on a little make up (which I should do more often) and ran to the restaurant where I’d meet my family.

As soon as I got there, the first family members started to arrive… I was so excited to see each and every one of them!

I had a wonderful night. I ordered a cassava gnocchi with funghi sauce (which was SO good), but I barely had time to eat. I was too busy chatting with my amazing family 🙂

I chose to eat my slice at home, after all the craziness of slicing the cake, getting forks for everyone and making sure they all had plates on their hands. What was left?


Yep… I guess they liked it 🙂


My slice 🙂

I spent my last minutes as a “birthday girl” hugging my Mom and Stepfather. They’re so awesome, and I’m so grateful for having them by my side 🙂

After that I went to bed… smiling from ear to ear 😉

I’d say my 16th birthday was a SUCESS!

I still have to tell you guys about my birthday dinner on February 11th with my friends… But I’ll do that on the next post. TMI, right?

I guess I’ll see you soon. And I hope you guys didn’t die of boredom after reading this post, haha 😉

Until next time!
