Linking up with Bonnie this week for Throwback Thursday!!
My most vivid birthday memory is my 13th birthday. Fitting, don't you think? Becoming a teenager. I was the youngest of my group of friends (which I hated at the time, but now I think it's pretty great!) and so they all made this big deal about it.
I had a slumber party on the tramp with my best girlfriends from school. They went in on my birthday gift as a group and got me jelly shoes and every color of nail polish (wet n wild holla!). Both of those things (jellys and multi colored nails) were critical to jr. high survival, so they really did have my best interest at heart.
|Just like these, only mine were clear.|
In the middle of the night my dog got loose and charged us on the trampoline. It was pretty awful.
The best part of the birthday was the next morning when all my friends were getting ready to go home, the phone rang. My sibling (can't remember which one) brought me the phone.
"Happy Birthday," said the voice.
My heart stopped. It was my biggest crush of all time calling me on my birthday. We talked awkwardly for a minute. I probably got off the phone so quick he thought I didn't like him. I really was just so scared to say something stupid! Even now, thinking about it, I can remember the butterflies.
I didn't ever date him really, but he was my first date when I turned 16 and he also took me to my prom junior year (he was graduated. I was so mature, taking a college man to prom!) Ah, memories.
