I'm 22!!

Hi friends! Sorry for the blogging absence, my finals totally ate me alive! But I wrote my last one today so it's all over now! Now I just wait and pray I passed everything...

FYI...that is not dandruff on my head but SNOW... every year of my life i've spent in Edmonton I have had snow on my birthday. :(

My sister says it looks like i'm trying to be a gangsta....I'm just representin' my age, yo!  

But on to happier topics....IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!! Well, it was an hour ago. In Vancouver I guess it's still my birthday for a few minutes. But I am home in Edmonton right now. Since it worked out with exams I got to be here with my family for this speial day. I got on a plane right after my 9:00 final was done! I'm so happy to be back and get to see my family. It meant a lot to have people I care about and that care about me today. Sometimes It's really hard living in a big city all alone, far away from everyone, so I'm really glad I got to come home for today and being around loved ones. It meant so much.
I got suprised by some friends at the airport, who drove me to dinner with my family. We went for Indian food to my favorite restraunt (New Asian Village, if you are ever in Edmonton check the buffet!!) Then came home with my family and my friends came back to watch Harry Potter on blue ray on my parents sweet tv. Oh, and the blue ray set came with wands!!!! Which makes the super hardcore Harry Potter geek that I am sooo happy. I opened my presents in the restraunt and may have embarrased my family with how excited I got over the wands....I have no shame.

Dress & Cardi from Target

On to the outfit! Because that is surely why you are here! I bought this dress in Target while I was in Utah and I knew it was meant to be my birthday dress. :) It was love at first sight and I am so proud of myself for only buying this one dress! Because how could I not? ;)

My sister was even so kind as to take outfit photos for me without even complaining! What a sweetie. My mom also deserves a shout out because she gave birth to me 22 years ago. I was the only one she went through labour for, with my older brother being adopted and my younger sister being a c-section! 24 hours of labour! Thanks Mom!

I've had mixed feelings about 22 up to this point, but I'm going to go out on a limb here (and hopefully not jinx anything) and say that 22 just might be my year. ;) 


  1. ERIN! You look fab! Happy happy birthday, I'm so glad you had a great day! I hope you enjoy Edmonton (despite snow) and I can't wait to see you when you're back!
    P.s. I bought some heels yesterday and I thought "Oooh I can't wait to show these to Erin at church" and then I remember you were in the frozen lands of Edmonton, so I guess I'll just have to wear them again when you're back :)

  2. Very cute outfit, Target sometimes has the cutest clothes. Happy Birthday, and I am sure that 22 is the year of ERIN! I wish you would have taken a picture of the wands, I am a geek too.

  3. 22 is a great year! I hope you have a very happy birthday!!!


    That dress is absolutely adorable, especially topped off with the yellow shrug.

    What a relief that finals are over with! Have fun celebrating your birthday weekend (or week, a week long celebration is so much more fun!)

  5. Happy bday! Love the outfit and love the bangs! Hope your day was great!
