Birthday Girl Jess

It was a very special weekend because it was Jess's 19th birthday! We started celebrating at 11:00 pm Friday night and didn't stop celebrating till Sunday at 12:30 am! On Friday we went and saw Shutter Island which I just found disturbing and did not enjoy it all but the other 5 people I went with loved it and found it very intriguing, so you can decided who to trust on that one before going and seeing it.
After returning from the movie we all needed a little lift to our spirits and we found just the thing, a birthday package that Jess' mom had sent. We went back in time and turned 5 years old all over again. Each of us received a princess crown and bracelet, and then we got to play a version of pin the tail of the donkey called put the kiss on the frog, themed after the new movie Princess and the Frog. We then took a stroll through the dorms in our crowns and all to go cook microwave cakes that her mom had also sent. At midnight we watched as Jess opened her presents then topped off the night by watching The Swan Princess 3, not quite as good as the first, but it kept our 5 year old little girl spirits alive for just a while longer.
The next morning we woke up and I was sent to distract Jess while Kelsey and Lohren decorated her dorm room and then we got dressed and headed to Waimea, for a pure beach day. We arrived at 11 and didn't leave till 5 o'clock that night we were having so much fun. Lohren got a new camera and tested it out with a group of random guys that wanted Kelsey and I in a picture!
The waves were perfect for body surfing and scary enough that we all thought we were going to be killed at one point or another but we survived. We laid-out, read magazines, listened to music, and enjoyed every minute of the day. Even a couple whales showed up in the afternoon to wish Jess a happy birthday! After getting home and showered we met up with Garrett and Egan and headed to Kahuku Grill, a restaurant we hadn't tried yet but heard was great. We had gotten a cake and princess balloon for the birthday girl and spent the next two hours eating and laughing. The food was as good as we were told and the cake from foodland wasn't bad either even though it took Garrett, Egan, and myself about 20 minutes before we could get the candles lit to sing happy birthday. We finished the day by seeing Valentines Day which I don't know how much the boys liked but the girls all loved it.
It turned out to be one of the funnest weekends we have had in quite a while which worked out perfectly because Jess definitely deserved such a wonderful birthday. In addition to it being Jess's birthday it was also my very best friend's birthday at home, Natalie! So Happy birthday Nat, I hope you had a great day! I can't wait to celebrate when I get home! Now the fun is over for another month until we get to celebrate my birthday!!
