The Day I Turned 30

Today has been a GREAT birthday. My intention was to have photographic evidence of my 30th birthday day, however, I just can't remember to get the camera out.

I remembered this morning when I got to work and my co-workers had streamers and confetti all over my office also a basket of items "older" folks might need! For the fun of it...I'm leaving most of it up all week!

For lunch a few of my co-workers went to a place called EJ's...had a burger and homemade potato chips! YUM!

Got home and went with my hubby to get his crown put on...this was scheduled over 2 weeks ago. While he was at the dentist...I got my drivers license renewed.

We came back to Conway...had some YUMMY Mexican food...and came home to relax.

I have gotten many birthday wishes on my Facebook page, text messages and phone calls. Had a great birthday party this past weekend weekend...and my neice got 7th overall on her solo and 4th overall on her duet at the national dance competition in Dallas. I'm not there, but I can just imagine how wonderful she did on those dances.

You know, as you grow up...a day like this is exactly the kind of day you want to have for your birthday. I am blessed with lots of friends and family and that is the best birthday present a girl could ever ask for her 30th birthday!

4th of July Weekend and 30th Birthday Party

I must say that this 4th of July is one I will always remember. My husband planned a big 30th brithday party for me and our friend's (Mark and Pam) joined in by hosting the party at their house! It was so much fun despite the clouds and rain that came toward the end of the night. John grilled burgers and hot dogs for the 30 friends and family that attended. The guests got to swim, visit, play ping-pong and watch fireworks. The rain even stayed away for most of the party and the fireworks. It was so nice to see how many friends God has blessed us with this past year! A BIG HUGE "Thank You" to John for planning my 30th birthday party and another BIG HUGE "Thank You" to Mark and Pam for having the party at their house! I love you all!


I officially turn 30 years old at 11:58 a.m. tomorrow, July 7th!
