No, not ALL of this has do with my 30's, but I think it's just where i'm at/where I want to be and it happens to coincide with this milestone birthday.
Speaking of the birthday - it was such a wonderful family-filled weekend. Yes, my birthday is a weekend. My mom came in town two days prior to visit, and Friday at work my boss/team celebrated with an edible arrangement. I worked late, which sucked a bit, and prompted me to post this on status update on Facebook:
I can officially report that I spent the last day of my 20's working late whilst munching on an edible fruit arrangement prior to meeting my 10 p.m. bedtime. When did I become such a rebel?
When I got home from work, my day did get better. Not only did I come home to Austin, my mom and the pups, I came home with a pineapple and strawberry only edible arrangement from my mother-in-law! So thoughtful. It came with a balloon and big pineapple 30. I kid you not, the balloon is STILL floating around the house - helium lasts forever.
Saturday, July 7, i.e., the big birthday, started with sleeping in, then making breakfast, then hopping in the car for 'Girl Day' with my mom and sister. Of course this meant shopping and decorating. Duh. I found some GREAT stuff for the house (pics coming!). The hours flew by and before I knew it was time for dinner with the boys - Austin, my bro-in-law Zach and my nephew Dane! Here's some pics:
|Such a great day with my two favorite ladies!|
|This guy made my birthday weekend so special! He got me a great gift, too, he had an iPhone adaptor installed in my car so I can play things off my phone through the car - man, I was missing out and didn't know it!|
|My favorite little family - Zach, Devie & Dane|
|This kid is even cutely perfect on a quick iPhone snap - LOVE HIM|
Q: Are you a fan of birthdays?!
Q: What was your last milestone birthday - did you love it or hate it?!
Still gathering pictures from my second birthday celebration with my in-laws and several of our friends - another fun-filled weekend - hope to post tomorrow!
