My 21st Birthday Celebration: Family Party and NYC

I am back from my week and a half of birthday celebrations!
21 baby! (Finally!)

I celebrated my 21st birthday on August 4th.
Thank you for all of your sweet birthday messages!

Saturday, August 3rd, my family came from far and wide to celebrate my twin brother and I for our 21st birthday.
Our family party was so wonderful. It was like a mini family reunion.
We shared lots of laughs and food.
We played some running bases and even some badminton.

At midnight on August 4th, I took the train into New York City with some of my best friends.
My best friends from high school came and so did some of my friends from school!

I wore this adorable black Lulu's dress with pink heels and pink jewelry! Such a cute outfit! I NEVER wear black, but I really liked this dress because of the little ruffle on the bottom. I have never bought anything from Lulu's before, but I was really pleasantly surprised by the quality!

We sang our little heart’s out at Duet 35 in Korea Town. It was super close to the Long Island Rail Road station. Of course, it started to downpour when we had only walked a block and had several more to go…
However, it was such a fun way to celebrate my birthday! We laughed, sang some High School Musical and Cheetah Girls. Such a fun party!
After two hours of singing we were hoarse, so we walked around Manhattan and went to Times Square to see all the lights.
At two in the morning, it was bright as day.
We took the train home and barely slept before starting another day in the Big Apple.

I had never been to the Freedom Tower before, and I was very skeptical about going, because 9/11 is a very sore subject for me, but I am glad we went.
It was a beautiful clear day. We were able to see all of Long Island, all of New Jersey, all of the bridges and all of the buildings in Manhattan. We even got to see some cruise ships coming into New York Harbor and Lady Liberty in the distance.
It was a really cool sight to see.
I think it was cooler than going to the Empire State Building!

For my birthday dinner, we walked to Baker & Co. in Soho for Italian food.
Pasta is definitely my favorite type of food, so I definitely wanted that for my 21st birthday dinner. It was not my favorite restaurant, but they did have gluten free pasta, and that was my main reason in picking that restaurant, so my gluten free friend could also enjoy some delicious Italian carbs.
Pasta, a glass of prosecco and loving friends; I was one happy and blessed lady.

We walked off our food coma by going to the Hudson River Park and the Highline.
Dessert was delicious gelato on the Highline in the meatpacking district.
The night ended when we ran for our Long Island Rail Road train and went to bed!

Such a fun two days to celebrate my legality!
The party did not stop there!
Next stop was VEGAS!
