It was my 17th birthday on Friday the 16th of November which I obviously shared with my twin sister, Magali. I’m posting it now because we only just had our party on Saturday due to November being a busy time of the year for ourselves and our friends but I still wanted to share my 17th birthday experience with you guys 🙂
On the Day:
Sadly, because my birthday was on a Friday this year, I had school but all of the wishes of ‘happy birthday’ made it a lot better. After school, I went shopping with my mum and as part of her present she paid for a couple of things I wanted plus hot chips! Later on, once the chips had settled, my family and I went out to dinner where I drank an iced chocolate and ate a pizza. When we came back we ate the cake that my sister had made for Magali and I and it was really delicious and looked really nice. Throughout the day, Magali and I got lovely phone calls from our relatives (they all live overseas) and such sweet cards and presents which I’m very grateful for.
On Saturday, Magali and I had a small dinner with our friends to celebrate our 17th birthday which was such a wonderful experience. We went to a Thai restaurant where I shared a vegetable and tofu pad Thai and deserts of roti with ice cream and deep fried ice cream with Magali and got an apple juice for a drink. It was a great time to catch up with friends whilst enjoying a delicious meal.
Here are all of the presents I got from my birthday which I’m showing because I’m so very grateful for my kind family and friends and I also enjoy to read and watch other people’s blog posts and videos about their presents, so I hope you enjoy mine 🙂 Along with what is shown in the photos, my parents super sweetly paid for the whole dinner with my friends, I got some vegan and regular chocolate which I’ve already mostly eaten and some money.
