Here's a math problem for ya...
2013 - 1983 = 30
Yep! That's me!!!
T-h-i-r-t-y..... and so far, it's not as bad as I thought! ;)

The celebrating technically started with a date night on Friday. When we got home, there was a strange man sitting on my couch. It took about 6 seconds for it to click that it was my DAD! And then I saw my MOM! They had spent the entire day driving to see me!
(I know the Grandkids are an extra bonus, but this trip was for ME!)
We stayed up late enjoying their company.
Saturday was a shopping day for the girls. I got to pick out a storage basket cabinet that my mom purchased for me as my birthday gift. While we gallivanted from store to store, the boys stayed back home and hung my new swing on our back screened-in porch before meeting us for dinner.
(My parents had to leave on Sunday but it was one of the BEST presents to have them visit!!!)

Oh warm weather come quickly!!!! I am dying to get out there and swing!

The celebrating lasted all weekend,
But here's a sneak peak into my (actual) birthday...

~ Was hand delivered a Tall, Decaf, White Chocolate Mocha with Whip (of course!) in the morning.

~ I lounged in my jammies most of the morning. (Okay, until 11:30 if we're getting technical.)

~ Showered and left to meet my best friend for lunch with our favorite son.

~ Took a shopping trip to Wally World. (I know what you're thinking... 'Who wants to grocery shop on their birthday? .... Well, not me, BUT I have a list of DIY's coming up and needed supplies, so technically, it wasn't grocery shopping!)
Sneak peek fabric...

~ Picked up my favorite daughter from school and headed home to cook dinner wait for the Hubs to come home and cook! Yep that's right! For my present, I asked HIM to make dinner for ME.
And it was one of my favs- breakfast for dinner. Finished off with homemade donuts (a recipe I'll share soon) and a Pandora charm to add to my little collection!

And BEST of all (drum-roll please.....), as Joel was doing the dishes after dinner he said, "Babe, thanks for making dinner every night. I just don't give you enough credit."
(Instant PERFECT birthday present!)

If I could go back 10 years and tell myself what I'd be doing when I turned thirty, I'm sure I wouldn't believe me!
I NEVER would have guessed that I'd be entering my third decade, in my third trimester, with my third child.

It's crazy the blessings I have received over the past 30 years!
I'm so thankful for all of the experiences, blessings and love received.
Bring on the next 30!
(If they're anything as good as the last, I absolutely can't wait!!!!!)
