My Birthday Gifts

Just in case some of you didn't know, my 16th birthday was Monday, Aug. 30th. In my last post I showed you pictures from my day, now I'm going to show you what was under all that pretty wrapping! :D

These are the gifts from my parents and sisters. :)

Isn't this purse gorgeous?

{Eep!! I love plaid!!}

Shirts and a cardigan.

I know, this looks like a mini dress, but seriously, it's a shirt. For some reason in the picture it looks longer than it really is.

More shirts! :D

Eldarwen like! {And yes, that's the same shirt I was wearing on my birthday. I opened it ahead of time:)}

More shoes!! :D

Accessories! Love 'em! :D

Thank you so much, Momma, Daddy, Narthea, Esara and Caldirwen!! I love you so much! *big hugs*

My Nana and Papa got me $40! {Which I failed to get a picture of.} Thank you! :D

Yesterday my Me-ma took me to the mall to buy me something from her and Pa-pa that would keep for a long time. I picked out this necklace.
We visited [seriously] like 10 jewelry stores. As soon as I saw this necklace I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. :)

Me-ma also took me to lunch at El Chico's, one of my favorite restaurants!! :D She "accidentally" told the waitress that we were there celebrating my birthday and you'll never guess what happened....
All of a sudden we hear this loud clapping and we're both looking around thinking, "Oh, someone's having a birthday". Then it hit me like a thousand bricks. O_O "It's me," I thought. Er, rather panicked. 
I was seriously so embarrassed I thought I was going to pass out. A dude asked for my name and age then screamed it to the whole restaurant while I'm sitting there covering my face and giving my Me-ma a look of "Why?!" lol :D They then proceed to clap even louder and sing "happy birthday". Oh wow. I seriously think I'm scarred for life. >_< Me-ma and I laughed and laughed afterwards. Thanks for the gift Me-ma and Pa-pa! :)

All-in-all I had a wonderful birthday and I'm so happy with the gifts I got! Thank you everyone for all the beautiful birthday comments you gave me! They meant a lot. :)  And I have a few friends on here who sent me a birthday gift. I won't name anyone, but I just wanted to say thank you and I love you! :)

25 Greetings from Elven Friends

Wow! I love your purse and shirts! So stylish and unique! ;)
Honestly, I wouldn't know what I'll do if a whole resturant knew it was my birthday o_O I would have probably hid my *blushing* face behind a menu or crawled under the table. :D
Anyway, glad you had a happy birthday!!!!

I went to a mexican restaraunt last year on my birthday... I made the mistake of going to the bathroom.
I came back and SOMEONE said SOMETING about it being my birthday. I was SO embaraced, they stuck a big hat on my head and SMASHED whipped cream in my face. I was so mad... but I guess its the thought.

Autumn said...

Hi Eldarwen!

I'm really sorry that I'm late on leaving you a comment here - it seems that I'm slightly behind in the blogging world of late. Just haven't quite had the time to leave everyone comments recently. But anyways, I just wanted to say that I hope you had a very, very, very happy birthday!! Have fun being sixteen!! (Wahoo! =)
