Another Year of Fabulous Pt. 1

Hey Guys!

As I'd previously mentioned, last Sunday, October 2nd would have been my birthday and boy was I surprised. It was very evident that Jason and Nickie had been planning for quite sometime and on the actual day, they really outdid themselves. I woke on what I considered to be a regular Sunday morning, did my morning routine and got ready to head downstairs. However, this morning would be different. Upon opening the door, I was greeted by a sheet of paper sitting in a blue folding chair which read “stay upstairs followed by an angry face”. 

My initial thought was "Really guys? Like seriously!". CONFUSED, I quickly yelled from the top of the staircase “I am coming down now” only to hear the loudest "NOOOOOOO" echoing through the house. I immediately saw two bodies and four feet running towards me as if I was on a football field about to be tackled. I was horrified! What the hell was going on here?! 

I was later informed that there is no way I could leave my room, I wouldn't be able to do so until 10:15 a.m. Can you imagine the look on my face when being told this at 7:30 a.m.? I really was not amused to say the least. After what seemed like forever and a year tucked away in my room with nothing to do, it was time to head downstairs. I got to the end of the stairway and made an immediate left, with all intentions of entering the living room, not knowing that I'd stumble upon a curtain made out of pink and zebra print steamers. OMG! It appeared as though I was going clubbing in my own house. 

As I continued to make my way, I only heard several voices yell "Surprise!". I was stunned to say the least, and the only words I could muster at the time were “ you guys are stupid”. Behind all the pink and zebra print hid Jason, Nickie, PJ, Amelia and Amelia’s baby Chloe which is a shih tzu poodle mix doggy. Nickie had slaved away all morning cooking me a wonderful Jamaican breakfast which I fully enjoyed. Please enjoy the pics and video of the morning events and look out for part two.
