Last weekend, my big sister turned 21 years old… 21! *shouts 21 in the voice of that vine kid for the next week*
To celebrate the occasion, the weekend planning was left to me… And we had an amazing weekend, because, well – I am the best. I really am. Okay so maybe not the best, but we had an epic time! Lets start at Friday…
I decided to book Friday afternoon off work in order to prepare for the weekend, so left work at lunch time. There is no greater feeling than leaving work at lunchtime on a Friday. No greater.
Once I was home, it was decorations time! I had a trusty team of helpers (well, Mom and Ben…they were useful) who helped me decorate the house with balloons, banners and these weird streamer things (?!) from all the windows.
We invited a tonne of Molly’s friends round for a pre-drinks get together, allowing me to play hostess, providing pizza and snacks. (Guys, I ruled at this hosting thing.)
We then went out to town and partied the night away at Snobs. For those of you who don’t know, Snobs is a timeless classic here in Brum. Those that say Snobs is a bad night, do not understand Snobs. They are Snobs themselves! WE HAD A GREAT NIGHT!
On Saturday, we were all a little fragile. When I say ‘we’, I mostly mean myself. My hangover defeated me.
But come 5:30, we were out again, enjoying a dinner out with our dad, boyfriends, uncles, aunties and cousins (Chinese Buffet Island – look it up. Fan-tas-tic.)
So it was definitely a well earned early night for me on the Saturday, ready for Molly’s birthday the next day. And yes. Lets not forget. Molly Love, is of course, a Valentines Baby!
14th February: Valentines Day aka Molly’s 21st
I woke up on Sunday to a delivery from my beloved beau – it was adorable. 12 red roses, two teddies and a cute balloon. I was totally feeling the love.
But of course, Valentines day isnt just Valentines Day… its Molly’s birthday! To celebrate, I am taking Molly to London for the first weekend in March. I’m planning lots of cute lunches and dinners, sight seeing and general tourist crap that everyone enjoys. PLUS we’ll be indulging in the shops – perfect.
One of my Mom’s gifts however, took place on that very day! SPA DAY! The three of us enjoyed massages and facials whilst circulating between the steam room and jacuzzi, indulging in a wonderful afternoon tea afterwards. We had a perfect day, and it was so nice to spend some time with just my beautiful mom & sister.
So that was our weekend! It was pretty busy and I certainly went on a roller coaster of feelings, from excited to nauseas to full with chinese to relaxed… but it was a perfect weekend.
To finish the post, I’d like to share with you a video I made for my sister’s 21st. Theres lots of home videos in it, so I hope you enjoy… p.s. i was a cute kid.
Love Katy xx
