Happy birthday Barbies were a right of passage in our college apartment. Each of us got one for our 21st birthday.
As you can see from the missing shoe, messed up hair, and thrown up sprinkles it was a night that Barbie me would never forget. Or at least one she would sit in the shower the next morning trying to wash vomit sprinkles out of her hair. Don’t judge me, all of us have a Barbie alter ego who has had to wash thrown up sprinkles out of her hair at least once 😉.
Trust me birthday Barbie looks like she had a way crazier 21st then me. I feel asleep as at a bar during my crawl.
Birthday Barbie was always around as a reminder of how much fun we could be having on any regular night. And as you can see we had a lot of fun with drunk Barbie. It was one of those gifts that kept on giving.
We even got the gang back together for our 22nd birthdays.
And as you can tell Barbie us, while still a little bit of a mess, had really gotten their act together by year 22.
Birthday Barbies was probably the best gift I got for my 21st birthday. They always hung out together, spending holidays and all hours together.
As an adult who has left behind her college apartment, life of writing papers and taking 2 hour naps everyday, having my birthday Barbie sit on my shelf as a reminder of that special friendship I had in college is enough to bring tears to this real girls eyes.
