I'll take a cupcake

Happy birthday to your MINI.

Do you go by the car's creation date or delivery date?

I'll go to old orchard for a party. and i'll bring cupcakes for everyone, too!!

i'm going by the day i picked my car up, because that's the day that I first got to enjoy her!

My sister has a fashioned a giant birthday candle to put on top of my car for this weekend as a way to celebrate.
I know I've got it bad. But I love my mini!!!

My mini's birthday was April 6. I bought her a tank of racing fuel and gave her a nice bath and waxing. I would have gotten her something better but I am saving up for new wheels.

Weather doesn't look good so far for Sat... we could meet on the top tier of the Bloomingdale's lot instead (no one parks up there) and it's covered

If you guys want to meet, pick a time and I'll be there Cup cakes and camera

I'll be there at 1:30 sharp. sorry to disappoint, but it looks like the birthday candle is a no go. however, my best friend did fashion a gigantic party hat to put on top of my car and constructed a way to keep it attached while driving via a series of ropes.

let me know if you're planning on being there so i can make sure i have enough cupcakes!

Woo! Sounded like it was fun, I wish I could have stopped by, but I was washing my parents cars as well as watching my uncle install something. Maybe next time.
