Oh No…

The big 3-0.

I turned 30 today.  I can’t say I am twenty-something any more.  I am now officially thirty-something.  I really had/have no problem turning 30.  I am so happy with my life and where I am right now that 30 is just a number. 

This morning Lance got up and left for work like normal.  Around 7:20 or so Sam woke up so I went to get him out of bed and took him back to my room before he could wake Reese up.  About ten minutes later Reese opened my door and asked where Daddy was.  I told her he was at work.  “What’s that noise downstairs?” she asked.  “I don’t know. What do you hear?”  “I am going to go downstairs and see Daddy.”  I just said ok and sent her on her way.  She got about half way down the stairs, stopped, started back up the stairs, and yelled, “Mommy!  There are balloons!  You have to come see this!”  I said, “There are balloons?” and she said, “Yes!”  She got so excited and looked at me and said, “You know what that means?”  “What?”  “Happy Birthday, Mommy!!”  It was sooooo sweet!!  So the three of us headed down stairs.

Lance had decorated the downstairs with balloons and streamers.

And then we rounded the corner and he was sitting on the couch.  He took the day off to spend with us and it was perfect!  He had gone out and picked up some French Toast (my favorite breakfast).

We went to lunch at Chick-fil-A (another of our favorites). 

After the kids took naps we had ice cream cake with my favorite Brusters ice cream…mint chocolate chip!

Tonight Lance had planned for us to go to dinner at Mellow Mushroom (haha…another favorite).  When we walked in my two best friends were there waiting on us.  I was so surprised and so happy to get to have dinner with them.  After dinner they came back to our house to have some more cake!

Here is what this 30 year old looks like today!  Thank you so much to all of the well wishers who have called, texted, etc today!  Especially thank you to my wonderful hubby!  He made me feel so very special today!  It has been one of the best birthdays ever!
