at home mom realized she forgot to start the crock pot dinner, so we decided we would just have a late dinner. i took a car and ran a few errands. another good story. i went to rue 21 to buy my perfume (they have so many stinkin cute clothes in right now!) and this girl (probably like 14 years old) comes up to me and says "i know this is weird but you are the most beautiful person i've ever seen." i was kinda shocked. because i thought my outfit was pretty cute and stuff, but not that cute. and then i smiled and was glad that she say that. compliments always make my day! and i realized that my outfit was completely modest and i like being a role model to girls to show them that you can be cute and modest!
before dinner we watched Newsies. have you seen this flick? it is the best. young Christian Bale is in it and he is very attractive, along with his supporting actor. i was singing along to all the songs- in my mind of course.
we finally ate dinner around 9 pm. it was totally worth the wait. i'm so grateful my mom humored me and made something she had never made before! it was indian food- chicken tikka masala, rice, naan, and grapes. we even ate on the floor and had indian music in the background! i learned to love indian food while i was in africa, which was great because i already had a liking for it. we used this crockpot chicken tikka masala recipe and it turned out great! it does take some prep time though. the naan wasn't as good as what you would get at india palace or something, but it was still great. we had cake and ice cream after dinner- of course i made an epic wish. i hope it comes true! mom made carrot cake which was the best carrot cake in the state. i'm pretty positive about this. i have never had carrot cake which has measured up to it. i got some sweet presents including a book with all my letters from Uganda! i was surprised and happy about it! grandma also gave me two jars of her raspberry jam! i cannot wait to eat it! yum. i also got a groupon to Color Me Mine. it pays for the studio fee so all i have to pay for is the ceramics i buy. i can take up two 4 people. i'm thinking a double date?
it was a good weekend. i wish i could just party on forever. but i can't. monday is the last day of birthday week, and i don't have any big plans. work, study physics, blah blah. oh well. we can't party all the time!
