Happy 30th to me!


Thanks to my amazing friends and family, I just had the best birthday weekend! It started out with a drink after band rehearsal Thursday night, which I later learned was set up as a ploy to keep me out a little bit later.....I was out a little too late however and didn't get home until after midnight. The first thing I saw when I got home was a clean house, which was really exciting, but than I walked in to my living room to see Jessie and Nicole sitting there with Shawn...patiently awaiting my arrival. This was a total surprise! I had no idea they were coming to visit and though I found a couple things suspicious in the past couple weeks, really didn't have a clue they were planning a trip here to surprise me. According to Jessie, my face was pretty priceless and I'm quite certain she'll be posting pictures on her blog soon.

Friday, my birthday, we went to Einstein's bagels, where Jessie announced it was my birthday and I got a lovely rendition of Happy Birthday, free bagels and a birthday muffin from the staff.
Later, Stephanie picked us up and we met my mom and sister for lunch at Chelsea's kitchen. The food was delicious and I got yet another rendition of Happy Birthday with some key lime pie and 3-0 candles. After lunch we got pedicures at this adorable new nail shop called Sundrops. The place is very cute and very girly! Here we are sitting on the cute little banquets getting pampered.


That night we gathered the boys and headed to my parents house for dinner. We had a lovely dinner of salad and gumbo cooked by my mom, my dad's famous gin and tonics, a bottle of wine or two and the very special carrot cake, which after some kitchen disasters nearly caused my mother to opt for purchased cake and ordering pizza instead of slaving away in the kitchen. Tim took lots of wonderful pictures of the festivities. Here's one of the girls.


After dinner and before opening presents, Jessie and Nicole read me a list of 30 reasons why they love me. The list was too wonderful and very sweet. Tim captured several shots of my reaction to the list and most of them look like variations of me in hysterics....



They did also manage to make me cry.....I have the best friends ever! Jessie and Nicole I love you both!

All in all it was a great 30th birthday celebration! I will post later about the rest of our weekend escapades, as there are more stories and pictures to share. Jessie, Tim and Nicole left for the airport a couple of hours ago and I now need to catch up on the usual weekend routine of laundry and such. Here's wishing my 30th year remains as good as it has started out to be!
