Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Hannah, happy birthday to you!
My sweet roommate and best friend is NINETEEN! To an American like me this doesn’t seem like a big deal. It’s kind of a bleh age. Eighteen is pretty significant. And twenty is well twenty…you aren’t a teenager anymore. Then, there is twenty-one. Which is a pretty huge deal here in the States.
But for my Canadian girl, nineteen marks the day that she can legally drink. And she can buy a lottery ticket. So, just as 21st birthdays in America come with a great celebration…we decided to celebrate her 19th birthday all weekend long. It’s too bad we are in America and she couldn’t actually have a traditional Canadian nineteenth birthday. So, instead of alcohol…we decided to celebrate with lots of yummy food!
^^I forgot to take pictures of lunch…but here is birthday cake number one!
^^We shopped around a bit after lunch. And that’s Hannah’s Mum who came down for the birthday weekend!
^^We headed over to the hotel that Hannah and her mum were staying at for dinner and found this little surprise next to their room
^^Our view at dinner of the Malibu Pier
^^Birthday cake number two
^^Making a wish
^^The next night we felt like we needed to trade in all the red meat we ate the night before for some yummy pasta (which again I forgot to take a picture of…forgive me?)
^^Birthday cake number 3, which was gone in about 30 seconds
And despite the fact that Hannah has a midterm on her birthday today, we are not going to let it stand in the way of the continuing celebration!
Hannah Banana, I love you to the moon and back and I hope all of your birthday wishes come true.
