Anyway, yesterday started out pretty boring because I was home alone. But I spent the time playing on my computer and hanging out with the Birthday Kitty. Also when I got up, there was a message from my mom on the whiteboard that said, Amanda Happy Birthday! It made me smile. When she got home she let me open a present early. It was Michael Jackson's This Is It on DVD! I was so excited.
As for birthday wishes, I got a ton from friends and family on my facebook and from people on Twitter. It really made me smile. I also got my annual American Idol Birthday Call. What it is, is my mom's friend Gail calls and sings Happy Birthday as badly as she can. It's always one of the highlights of my birthday. Really, if you could hear, you'd die laughing. It's so bad! I love getting that call XD And I also got some really awesome birthday tweets from some really amazing singers. I totally screen capped them! So here they are:
( Bday Tweets behind the Cut! )
So those of course really made my day! I was all SQUEEEEE!
Around six Mom and I went with Mike to Newicks for my birthday dinner. If you go on your birthday, you get up to $10 off your meal and they have stuff under ten bucks so you can essentially get a free meal. But you have to show your ID so it has to be your birthday. haha. It's this new tradition we've started, going for our birthdays, since we now have a Newicks in our city. We only used to be able to go once in a while since the nearest one was pretty far away. The food was amazing as usual. Mom and I got the same thing, but she got the smaller portion. It's a seafood caserole. It's haddock, shrimp and scallops in Newburgh sauce with crumb topping. It's soooooo good. Usually this time of year they have Seafood Shepherd's Pie, which is the same thing but with potato instead of the crumbs. But they didn't have it this year, so I was a little disappointed. But not by much since I got to have the caserole :) We were so stuffed, that when we got home we couldn't even have cake! And we still haven't. I wanted to have some for breakfast, but I thought I'd wait till after dinner so I could have some with my mom and get to blow out the candles and everything.
And now for presents. So you already know about the DVD. Well, from Mike I got 2 McDonald's gift cards. That's what he always gets me which I love. He's great. Saturday I got a card with $25 in it from my grandma. The rest of the things I got from my mom was a bunch of candy because I have the biggest sweet tooth EVER! She also got me a karaoke game for the Wii. And the last thing she got me was Kat Von D's book High Voltage Tattoo, which is the name of her tattoo shop. There are some awesome pictures in it! I haven't started reading it, but I've started looking through the pictures and they're cool. It's a really beautiful book. I can't wait to get started on it.
All in all, my birthday was pretty awesome. 25 is starting pretty well. Lets hope it continues this way :)
