21 Things To Do In My Twenty First Year

So I turned 21 on Sunday May 15th, yay!

Here’s a quick recap on my birthday:

Birthday weekend started Friday after work! Justin let me open one present, and it was Ticket to Ride . I’m a big board game person, and this game is so much fun.

You basically get destination tickets from one city to another, and you have to try and build your train connecting the two cities. Just play it, I promise it makes more sense then. 

Twenty First Birthday Bucket List

I came home from dinner on Saturday night to our apartment decked out in birthday decorations and my friends there to surprise me. It was so cute and so nice of Justin to plan that.

Justin even got me a vanilla cake with chocolate icing! And the candles 2 and 0, instead of 2 and 1, but I mean he tried his best 😉

On Sunday morning, Justin brought me breakfast in bed – fried eggs, turkey bacon, strawberries & of course my favourite french vanilla coffee.

I opened my gift from him and it was a Fitbit Charge! I had only mentioned I kind of wanted to keep track of my steps while at work, he listened and thought of it all on his own! I really adore this thing already.

It was a wonderful birthday weekend and I have my amazing man to thank for that.

Now I live in Canada, so I’ve been legal for three years already, so turning 21 isn’t as significant here as it is in the states. But! It’s still a birthday and I want this year to be awesome.

I thought it would be fun to come up with a bucket list of sorts to fulfill in my twenty first year. This could get a little personal.
