well i know that your 21 and our 19 in canada are sorta the same with what you’re legally allowed to do and stuff, and since i’m not 21 yet, i can let you know what i did on my 19th?

it was horrible. N and my best friend decided to throw a surprise party for me, since i have a big house in the country complete with pool, badminton, volleyball, fooseball, and a swimming pool.

i don’t know who did it, but whoever was in charge of actually inviting people told everyone the wrong date. and didn’t realize until the night before.

so my surprise birthday party for the big 19 was my family, and them. so basically, any other day of the week.


hope yours is more exciting than mine was!

i spent my 21st going to Toronto (ironic, cuz you only have to be 19 in CA to drink)… but anyway, i was a ‘bad kid’ and had my partying started way before my 21st, so a few of my gf’s, an ex and his boys all road tripped to Toronto… stayed at a lakehouse on the way one night and partied in the city all weekend.

i suggest you plan a mini road trip to someplace fun with in a few hours driving time and do an expansion of your condo rental last year! πŸ˜‰

roadtrippin with your honey and some friends would be a blast!! (assuming that you’ve already had “drinks!” and getting to “drink” really isn’t that big of a deal. ;P)

you’re down in florida, right?  take a weekend with your friends in new orleans! I actually had my 19th birthday (oops!) and my bachelorette down there and they both were among the most fun weekends ever, and really not too expensive – if you want a great and affordable hotel, check out Quality Inn and Suites Downtown.

My Fiance (boyfriend at the time) and my brother got a limo for me and my friends and we went out bar hopping in Boston.

On my 21st, I bought a bottle of wine, went out to a very fancy dinner with my then boyfriend (now an ex), and then went home to drink the wine. Not horribly exciting, but I was living in Canada when I turned 19, so I’d had my “21st” a few years before.

My 21st was pretty low key.  I was in college so my Fiance (then boyfriend) and I were seriously playing old school Nintendo in his dorm room.  My dorm room was directly above his and I could hear something going on up there.  When I went up, there happened to be a surprise party for me.  It was sweet, but it lasted about an hour hahaha.  I went right back to Nintendo.  Honestly, we were all SO broke, drinking just wasn’t in the cards!

Well, the plan was to go to a bar and get drunk but I had food poisoning instead. So it was pretty rock-tastic.

Well, I don’t drink, so that pretty much ruled out a night of craziness.  But you’ll love this one…my birthday always falls in Christmas break while all my friends are out of town, so my grandpa, feeling sorry for me took me to the casino on my 21st and gave me $20 to gamble away. LOL  It was actually pretty fun and I still laugh at how I spent my 21st.

I was in rehearsal all night on my actual 21st bday but had HUGE plans for the following day beginning with brunch and going until the wee hours…however, that ended up being 9/11 so instead we spent the entire day (and week) glued to the TV.  I’ve still never celebrated my 21st birthday.

haha I was in my first semester of law school and had class the next morning. And you do NOT miss class unless you’re dying the first semester. So I went to school on my bday, went out to dinner with some friends (i’m assuming… I don’t really remember to be honest, and not bc I was drunk), went to a bar and had some drinks, and was home by 1.

For my 21st I had lunch with all my friends at my favorite mexican resturant, because I didn’t drink at the time.

Then a week later, my Fiance (who is 4 years older than me),  felt bad that I had missed the whole “getting crazy drunk” on my birthday thing. So, since his parents have a full bar in their basement, and were out of town for the weekend, he took me over there and got me pretty wasted.

It was awesome. He used to be a bartender in college, so he poured me silly girly drinks (I could only handle about 3.5) and I got to have a completly unrestrained good time in the safety of his parents house. After this experience he also completly understands why I hardly ever drink (I turn into kind of a whore. It’s like someone gave me ecstasy!)

Their basement makes me so jealous,btw. They have a 72″ flat screen TV, a full hardwood bar, a pool table and a putting green. It’s awesome.

My 21st was actually last month, and it’s the exact same day as FI’s.. He was in basic when we both turned 21 though, so I really didn’t want to do anything.. My parents took me out to dinner at Olive Garden and I had a few drinks and that was it.. But once he came home on leave at the end of the month, we made up for it and celebrated by going out and drinking with friends one night and heading out to a casino for another.. It was a good time πŸ™‚

I went out at midnight the day before (or I guess the morning of) my birthday, which was not so good. Then my mom came down to school in the afternoon, got me a wine flight, which I couldn’t finish. My fiance took me out later and he proceeded to throw up on the way to the bar because of a bad thai food. I got sick after one drink because of a prescription med I was taking. So not awesome πŸ™‚
