Birthday Party Called on Account of... Blizzard?!

Last week I turned the big 22. Normally I wouldn't make much of a fuss about it, but being as I'm living in an apartment with my awesome friend/roommate (totally a no-no, but so far we're coexisting very well) I decided that I could throw myself a party. So I hop on the Facebook, and set up an event. Put in all the details, invite everyone I want. People start responding, lots of maybes, a couple for sure. Then comes the day....

And the biggest friggin' blizzard in almost 20 years hits! 
Just my luck.
The storm was so bad that MNDOT pulled all the plows OFF the roads!

And so the party was cancelled. This was in the top 5 of my list of crappy birthdays, and the second official time my birthday has been snowed out. Normally I don't whine about presents, I always get a few, it's not so huge of a deal to me, but I only got two this year. One from my roommate, and another from a friend of ours. Sad, indeed. Either way, makes for an interesting story. Hope everyone is well!


  1. Happy Birthday! Sorry you got snowed out. Just switch your birthday party to July (mine's the 16th) and nobody will ever show up, because of summer holidays... There really doesn't seem to be a convenient time of year for a birthday.

  2. Happy Birthday! I'm sorry you had a crappy birthday. :-( I wish I could say I haven't been there. I hope that you are able to have a post-birthday celebration (sometimes those are pretty awesome!).

  3. Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday dear Jess
    Happy Birthday to you

    I'm sorry you didn't get your party.

  4. happy birthday :)
