Yesterday I kissed my 20's goodbye.
Whaaaaaaattt!? Where did my 20's go? How am I 30-years-old? Its crazy talk, I tell you!
No, to be perfectly honest, turning 30 was FAAAAR less freaky/sad/depressing than I thought it would be. It helped that I had an AMAZING weekend facilitated
by my favorite people in the world.
To start off the Birthday Weekend Extravaganza I met my mom and sister, Tara, in LA. My mom hung out with Nathan in the hotel (thanks, mom!) and Tara took me to a Josh Turner concert!!!!! IT WAS AMAZING!
|Ready for the concert!|
Josh (yes, we are on first-name basis :)) was amazing. He is such a good, christian, down-to-earth guy. And although we were two of like 10 people at the concert who were under 60 years old, it was an amazing time.
|The whole band came out in costume. Here is Josh Turner as "Big Daddy"|
The next day we spent the day at the mall. My mom bought me some clothes and held Nathan while I shopped and took us to Rubys for lunch. I felt so pampered!
Nathan LOVED basking in Tara and my mom's adoration and attention.
That night my brother, Matthew, his wife, Carrie, and my nephews Adden and Ben came down to meet us for dinner. I was lucky enough to have Hillary come and surprise me and join us too! We had a great dinner at BJs and all of us rolled out of there stuffed to the brim with good food.
|Free Pazookie for my bday. Nathan is in my arms. He completely zonked out during dinner. He had barely slept during the day and couldn't function any longer. I felt so bad for the poor guy.|
Monday, November 3rdCameron made me a yummy breakfast and Matthew spent the morning with us before heading back to LA on the train. After class Cameron came home and we went to the park and fed the ducks and took a walk at the lake.
It was such a nice birthday. It made me grateful to have been born into the family I was, to be alive during this time, to have the friends and family I do, to be a wife, to be a mother, and to live in this beautiful place. I am so blessed.
