the BIG 30

Yes folks, I'm still WAAAAYYY behind on the blog, and possibly even more shocking ......

I turned 30!!!!!!!

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about hitting this particular milestone.  I am officially no longer "young", but I do have to say that the celebration of turning 30 couldn't have been better!  Honestly I feel so blessed to live the life I live.  It all started with a surprise party to end all surprise parties!

I was completely unsuspecting when Justin led me out of the house (sans make up, and wearing "mom clothes")!!!!  So imagine the leap my heart took when we came back to a HUGE crowd of my closest friends screaming surprise!  I CANNOT even begin to tell you the feeling of love I felt that night.  They knew I'd be gone for my actual birthDAY and completely went overboard with a party.  The house had been cleaned and decorated, all of my favorite treats were laid out beautifully on the table, and everything was a pink paradise!!!  No detail was overlooked and I walked around with a perma-smile plastered on my face because I felt so loved!

Thank you girls ... you got me ... and I LOVED it!

 do you know how much work went into this cake?  I do and Erin still made it for me!!!  WOW!

Justin took me away for the weekend on a couples get away.  It was PERFECT!!!  We lounged at the pool, ate really yummy food, went to a show, ate yummy food, slept in, ate yummy food, went to the pool, ate yummy food, went to a show, slept in, ate yummy food, and then I got on an airplane.  It was a glorious way to end my 20's and begin my 30's.  Thank you love

 Good bye 20's

 hello 30's!!!
(do I look different????)

Happy Birthday! 30 is wonderful. I have been telling people I'm 31 for the past few months that when I actually turned 31 I wasn't sure exactly how old I was. Maybe 30 is old and you forget things :)

You are beautiful :) You have such good friends, what a great party! I loved your polka dot cake. I wish we lived closer so we could hang out more. I still think 30 is young :) and girl, you don't look a day over 25, so there you go!
