Finally. The Birthday Post (Image Heavy!)

Ok. I finally am getting around to posting these. My birthday was a complete roller coaster. Thinking about it now I couldn't have expected anything different. My birthday has been just such since September 11th of 2001-- my sweet 16. My aunt and cousin put on the most fabulous dinner ever! Jimmy and I rode our bikes down earlier in the day and put some pork ribs in the oven. On the trip down I ran over a snake with my bike and almost fainted!
I love these pictures of my mom and I dancing

Drink in hand I finally started to relax and enjoy the day. I got some really great presents. Spent some time with some of the most special and favorite people I know on the planet. If it weren't for the craziest Second Saturday (close to 20,000 people and a shooting resulting in 2 deaths downtown) back in Sacramento I would say everything would have been perfect.

PS. Did I mention I LOVED my dress and hair that day? I added some high lights and she braided my bangs. I really need to wear that dress more.
