my dear friend lauren (whom i fondly call 'nae') turned 21 yesterday!!! we started this 24-hour-celebration-fest by jasmine and i taking her to crickets at midnight on tuesday night for some birthday yumms. we all had so much fun, trying to get the three of us to stay serious is like trying to get a group of toddlers to take the SAT. and pass it. not gonna happen.
the next morning post-class, a few of us had a delicious brunch at nae's place. jasmine made us quite a spread of french toast, muffins, scrambled eggs, and fruit salad. (i was on mimosa duty.) as you can see, our dear tim phillips was decked in full argyle-attire, because apparently 'the only men that go to brunches are grandpa's.' we ate (entirely too much) and watched millionaire matchmaker. after brunch, we all parted ways to take our food-coma naps.
for dinner, we all went to nae's favorite restaurant, 'bangkok royale' and brought along as many of her friends as we could. (which is a lot, nae knows EVERYONE.) and all ate to our heart's content (again). we then re-grouped and met up at nae's since jasmine had made incredible cupcakes and nae had to open her presents.
we then moved the party to crickets for drinks and more fun. nae is a giant ball of sunshine tucked into an adorable little package, and we were all thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate with her. love you, nae!
