Birthday x4

Well, this past week was crazy, because in my cottage there were four birthdays! This means many parties with a lot of people and food. We began the birthday celebration on Tuesday night at midnight going to Steak ‘N Shake. Amy and Jenna wanted milkshakes on their 21st birthday. On Wednesday morning Grace and I went to Biggby to pick up drinks for two of the birthday girls in our house. The owner of Biggby gave us their drinks free, plus mine and Grace’s drink, too!

Then, on Wednesday night, five of the girls in my house went out to dinner at an excellent Italian restaurant on 7th Street called Serafina’s Italian Bar and Grille. We couldn’t eat too much at dinner because we were planning to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings later that night with a large group of people.

Of course, when a mass email is sent out to celebrate multiple birthdays at B-dubs, a flock of people show. Our group took up so much space and B-dubs, but it was a lot of fun to walk around and talk with a bunch of different people. I think there was at least 50 people from Hope who attended the birthday celebration. 

After B-dubs my roommate and I stayed up till 3 AM talking. I love living with her and enjoy our late night talks. I think it’s those late night talks that I will remember the most about college. The friendships I have made are incredible, and I am extremely grateful!
