It's official. I'm 30.
I woke up this morning with two of my best friends from Cali sleeping on my couches. They are here! In the city! On my birthday!
Then my husband surprised me with a big box that was heavy. A new crockpot! I desperately needed one and I didn't even drop hints or tell him that's what I wanted, he just came UP with that! Awesome. It's like super high tech, sleek shape, nice design, and stainless steel. I HEART my new crockpot.
He also bought me my favorite cupcakes in the world. Chocolate with pink buttercream frosting from Buttercup. Breakfast-cupcakes! So thrilled. So yummy.
We sang, lit a candle, opened presents all before he went to work.
I got lots of cards and some generous checks from parents and grandparents, and I confess, after 30 years of birthdays, I had a feeling some of these checks were coming, so I did a little pre-shopping for my birthday dress!
I quite like it. I think it will help me to PARTY on this, my 30th birthday. Cutom-made, Etsy of course.
My mom made me an album of photos of just the two of us over these 30 years. I laughed and I cried as I read through these pages that she so thoughtfully put together. The last page is the best. I am going to scan it later and put it on the blog. My Dad wrote me a beautiful letter reminding me of all the blessings in my life, including HIM!
There is more in store for this day, it's only 9 AM after all. But, right now, while my girls are playing in their room with my friends' girls....I am going to stay in my bed and load up my kindle with the gift certificate my sister sent me! 30th birthday is going WAY good so far.
