Happy Birthday to Me! {the big 3-oh, part 1}

I had a wonderful birthday this year. I have to admit I did shed a few tears on the night of my birthday eve as I was sad to say goodbye to my twenties and the end of an era in my life. But by morning, I was ready to greet the day and all that lay ahead. My gourmet chef hubby made my favorite fetticine alfredo the night before and it was awesome. I also great presents from my parents.
Then my birthday was a holiday so we had no school or work and got to play as a family together all day. When I woke up I was greeted with one of my favorite breakfasts: oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins, a glass of apple juice and a mug of hot chocolate.
Then I was treated to a lovely pedicure complete with sparkly pink polish.
Then my husband took us out to lunch and on the way home he sat in the car with the kids so I could run into a few thrift stores. So fun! For $1.75 I picked up this 6- glass votive holder thing I'm picturing I could repurpose for organizing cake sprinkles, little craft stuff or art supplies. (any other ideas?) and a rustic looking fleur de les candle holder.
That night we had friends over for dinner and double chocolate cake and ice cream. Yummy and fun!
On Friday some friends took me out to eat at the awesome chinese buffet for lunch.
Then to top it all off, Friday night me and some great friends put on our sparkly shoes and went to mexican for dinner and dessert, then watched "The Help" on blue-ray and finished it off with a virtual nintendo connect dance off! It was such a blast.
Thank you everyone for making my birthday so wonderful! Here's to Thirty and the next chapter!
