{Outfit}: A Merry Merry Unbirthday to Me!

Alice in Wonderland Party

  Tuesday October 8, 2013

Today my friends surprised me by throwing an Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party!! But before we get to how awesome that was, lets take a quick look at today's outfit. Today I decided to wear this dress to celebrate my birthday for two reasons: a) blue is my favorite color, and b) I've never worn this dress because I've been waiting for a "special occasion", but what could be a more special than my birthday right?!

Hoy mis amigos me sorprendieron organizando una fiesta de cumpleaños inspirada en Alicia en el País de las Maravillas! Pero antes de contarles todo sobre la fiesta, primero echémosle un vistazo a mi outfit del día. Hoy decidí ponerme este vestido para celebrar mi cumpleaños por dos razones: a) el azul es mi color favorito, y b) nunca me he puesto este vestido porque estaba esperando para una "ocasión especial", y qué podría ser más especial que mi cumpleaños cierto?!

Ok, now lets get back to discussing the awesome Wonderland party! I was so surprised when I walked into Diana's house and saw the entire room decorated as Alice in Wonderland. The table was set as a Wonderland tea party with all sorts of yummy goodies and cute desserts. They even had a Cheshire Cat cake which, in case you didn't know, is my favorite Disney character!

Ok, ahora volvamos a discutir lo increíble que fue la fiesta! Al entrar a la casa de Diana y ver toda la sala decorada como Alicia en el País de las Maravillas, en verdad estaba tan sorprendida que no me lo podía creer. La mesa estaba decorada como la hora del té con todo tipo de picadas y postres ricos. Incluso hasta tenían un pastel del Cheshire Cat que, por si no lo saben, es mi personaje favorito de Disney!

What made the party even better was that all my friends dressed up as characters from the movie!! Since I was the birthday girl, I was honored to be Alice (and I was coincidently wearing blue, so it was a perfect fit!).

Lo que hizo que la fiesta fuera aún más especial fue que todos mis amigos se vistieron como personajes de la película! Siendo mi cumpleaños, tuve el honor de ser Alicia (y por pura coincidencia estaba vestida de azul esa noche, así que coincidía perfectamente con el personaje!)

After my friends sang me happy birthday and it was time for me to blow out my candles and make a wish, I looked around me and realised how lucky I was to be surrounded by such good friends... what more could I ask for right? So I decided my wish for this year is to always and forever be surrounded by my amazing friends.

Después de que mis amigos me cantaran "Happy Birthday" y ya era hora que soplara mis velitas y pidiera un deseo, paré un segundo a ver a mi alrededor y me di cuenta que soy tan afortunada de estar rodeada de tan buenos amigos... de verdad qué más podría desear? Así que decidí que mi deseo de cumpleaños para este año sería estar rodeada siempre de mis amigos del alma.

I've always dreamed of having an Alice in Wonderland themed party, and now, thanks to my wonderful friends, that dream has finally come true. It was a truly magical night!

Siempre he soñado con tener una fiesta temática de Alicia en el País de las maravillas, y gracias a mis buenos amigos por fin ese sueño se ha hecho realidad. De verdad que fue una noche mágica!
