An Extremely Picture Heavy Birthday Post

If you read an earlier post, you may know that last Sunday, I turned 16. You may also know that the way that I was going to celebrate my birthday was a surprise for me. My friends were very secretive all week prier to the celebration, and managed to keep it locked even when making arrangements for myself and the weekend, which included them having to walk 10 paces behind me so they could jump in my car shouting “surprise,” and ordering me a cake!

I finally discovered that the surprise was an overnight stay at the Alton Towers Hotel, in the extremely pink and girly Sleepover Suite! My friends and I had an absolutely fantastic time! Filled with balloons, an all-you-can-eat buffet (although we were pretty upset they didn’t offer chicken nuggets – I know!) a film that we thought we had to pay for, but we didn’t really, so it turns out that we could have watched another film, and music every time we walked into the suite and bathroom! Ooh, and a PINK SMEG FRIDGE full of goodies! The following day, we went into the Alton Towers park to go to the Sea Life centre :)
I seem to have a strange love for pretty, detailed benches.
As for my younger(ish) brother, he spent the Saturday going to Sherwood Forest to play (I think that’s what you do?!) archery, and the evening with a poker night. However, my friends and I obviously weren’t cool enough for Dylan and his cluster of friends, therefore we were banished from the conservatory (where they were playing).

On the actually birthday, my family, myself and Ellie all went out to a local Chinese Restaurant – Dylan’s choice. It was so lovely to spend some quality time together, and I hope Ellie had a good time. After all, L’amour Josie kept on stuffing won ton down her throat! (Not literally)

How adoreable are these two cards that one of my sisters bought for myself and my brother?!

Paperchase cards
We also received some other lovely cards :)

I was incredibly spoilt, and received so many lovely gifts! I am just going to show you pictures of what I got, and do reviews shortly! So expect a lot of reviews!
Sorry about all of the images, it's just, when I get my hands on a decent camera, I'm off! There's more to come. These are the Polaroids which were taken last weekend.
Next Wednesday it is Ellie's birthday, which we are both super excited about. I'm sure she will be doing a post about her birthday soon :)
