A teenager’s 16th birthday is one of the biggest days of their life. In many cultures, it signifies the transition from childhood to adulthood. Nearly every American girl is even more excited about their 16th birthday now thanks to MTV shows like My Super Sweet 16.
Of course, not every girl wants a huge, elaborate party like on television, and that was the case with one teen, Lauren Blank. She had her perfect sweet 16 already planned out but she never expected it to take a completely different turn, all thanks to her grandfather.
