Yesterday, at exactly 12:05am, my baby girl (JaLisa) turned 21. I am so glad that she stayed in town to celebrate HER day with me. We started the day with Redbull smoothies. We went to a couple of appointments and did some running around and then we came back home to rest up for the night’s festivities.
We didn’t have anything planned; just a nice dinner out with a couple of friends and some beverages. We went to Kimo’s Sports Bar because they have a microbrewery and JaLisa wanted to try some beers (although she ended up not having one). I made her a fancy birthday hat which she wore proudly. She ate chicken nachos and pizza and drank and laughed A LOT.
We sang happy birthday over a Chocolate Cake shot and she also enjoyed a few other cocktails (i think there were 5 total). She was ‘feeling herself’ and after opening her presents, we spent the rest of the.evening talking and laughing. We ended our night by coming home and watching the season finale of Love & Hip Hop and then, it was off to bed.
The best part of January 23rd, 2012 besides spending it with my daughter is the fact that she spent the whole day saying “This is the best day of my life!”. She will have other great days but I am so glad that I was able to be there for THIS great day.
Just me being me.
