We stopped at Walmart so I can legally buy my first rack of liquor. And naturally I don't get carded!! That would totally happen.
Then met up with KC and Kate at their house in Carlsbad. Kate and I were all dressed up and had no clue where we were going. We pre gamed a bit then we headed to the secrete location.
Turns out, the boys planned a nice dinner in San Diego for us (Kate is deploying this weekend so it was like her going away too). We took this beauty...

The Coaster down to downtown San Diego. And fun fact if you are even in the San Diego area, you can drink on The Coaster! It was so much fun, we brought drinks, the people around us had drinks. It was a party train!
The train dropped us off a block from The W hotel where we had dinner reservations! (Those boys did good!). Dinner was so swanky and classy! And I ordered my first legal drink at a restaurant!
Guess what, I didn't get carded for that either!! I must look old or something. After dinner the boys smoked cigars and we caught the coaster back up to Carlsbad. (Kate had the pics but I don't want to bother her with her deploying so soon, she has lots on her plate!)
A little later our friends came over and we hit the bars! They were all within walking distance which was perfect! Eek. So much fun!
I fell, of course...
I definitely got carded at the bars so it made up for earlier. I also (and my husband probably hated this but I call it being thrifty) would walk up to the bar next to a guy and tell him it was my birthday. They would buy me a drink then Id walk back to my husband and friends. Haha I am the biggest jerk! But free drinks? I'll take it. Our night of bar hopping ended at Dennys (naturally) and our friend's futon.
Overall it was an amazing birthday, with my amazing husband and my amazing friends!
