the big 23 for makenzieeeee: a double trouble birthday

2013 September 5

DSC_0138i thought that maybe adding the “eeeee” to the end of “makenzie” would make it rhyme with 23. did it work when you read it in your head? if you said it in just the right kind of squirrely voice i think yes. so, tuesday was makenzie’s birthday. i spent monday night at her place so we could watch a notasscaryaswepredictedittobe scary movie on netflix in lou of the holiday weekend. in other words i don’t recommend the 2011″don’t be afraid of the dark” it’s not scary, what was makenzie thinking? (but if you have a minute, google-image it and look at the weird creatures who live in the basement) the next morning some nice boys came over to make her birthday pancakes, i had to leave early for school and missed out on the whole thing.

we reunited later for bar time at double trouble on main st. whoop whoop houston bar scene. makenzie was so nervous that no one would come, and by the end of the night we had 5 patio tables filled. don’t underestimate your popularity gurl! we had tacos-a-go-go snacks, and some drinkies from inside. i had 2 1/2drinks, which is probably a record for me. (not because i usually have twice that, but because i usually don’t even finish a whole one) i later tripped on a step and everyone went up in hoots and hollars, but i swear i seriously just tripped because the concrete was cracked, i wasn’t tipsy I SWEAR!


DSC_0114if you haven’t seen them in real life yet then yes, those are my new lotta from stockholm clogs! i got them from their “seconds” page online, meaning they supposedly have a problem and so they had to sell them way discounted, but i can’ t find anything wrong with them. $45 for made in sweden lotta clogs – best present to me i’ve had in a long time. if you don’t remember the time i visited their warehouse in england double click on THIS. how cool was that?



DSC_0124i had a boozie slushy, a paloma to be specific, and liked it because it didn’t even taste like alk-ie. (get it, thats a cute way to say alchohol).


DSC_0128anybody recognize this cool guy on the left? he totally crashed the party and is going to love that i put his picture on this here blog. sorry christopher …




DSC_0136one of like the million bathroom trips we took during the night. the five girls: makenzie-halie-margee-paula-and me kept getting up together and having “girl time” of which i would pump my fist up in the air and say “periodsssss” get it, because thats something girls can bond over. once again, totally not drunk at all.

DSC_0143and lastly, david did darn good on getting makenize a million little presents, all of which she just loves. one in particular is this new shirt. and what made her day more that getting the sloth tank? ¬†getting to be matching outfit twins with her bf. isn’t it just the cutest when couples match. (you know who you are and yes i thought it was cute every time). check back her in 6 months to hear how my 23rd birthday goes.
