First of all, I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday!! I appreciate it SO much! I had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything better! I went to the Yankee game (on the most beautiful day of the summer might I add) and got to see my favorite team win SUCH a good game to see! I then went to a brand new shopping center on the way home that is literally like a small town of nothing but stores! It looks like NYC with so many tall buildings and sidewalks with pretty flowers but instead of skyscrapers there's nothing but endless stores and shopping! My jaw hit the ground the moment we drove in - it was every shopping lover's dream!

A couple pictures of my new favorite shopping center:

I then got to have my favorite dinner ever and of course, my favorite cake ever - the Hershey chocolate bar cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory!! Too good to count calories for a day!
I am so blessed to have the best family and friends who gave me the most beautiful day, gifts and love on my 21st birthday!! Here's some more pictures from my day:

Thank you again to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and who made my day so special! Definitely one of the best days I've ever had! As my Dad always says, it's my birthday week and you can bet that I'll keep celebrating! I'm now working on planning my trip to Las Vegas that I've been anxiously awaiting since I was a freshman in high school : )

I also have to thank my best blogging friend Chantal for featuring me and my blogger's spotlight questionnaire during tonight's link party! You can check it out to see my answershere!

5. By linking up, you agree to allow Painted Teacup and Daily Dose of Design to share your links and photos (credit is always given to you) on our blogs and social media sites. You also agree to allow us to contact you via email to inform you of future link-ups.

  1. Happy birthday! The pics are awesome - looks like you had a great day! :)

  2. Thanks for hosting :) PS- Happy Birthday!!

  3. It's hard to have any complaints about this event venue. It's easy to get a drink since they actually keep enough bartenders working at once, and you'll almost always find a place to sit. I love the vibe, the area, the people and the food at this place.

  4. Here's to you, as old as you are, and here's to find out more those who are older, and may the younger know, the age we are at is beginning to show. May this coming year bring with it success in your goals, happiness you wish for and wisdom to bless you

  5. I thank you for the information and articles you provided

  6. You are obviously an authority in your field! I'll find your information to be very helpful. Best Smm Panel appreciate your assistance and wish you luck in your business. smmheart
