Happy Birthday to ME!

I did it. I'm finally 30. I thought I would be so sad, but I was so excited! I've finally hit that special time in my life. For those of you who know me, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. For the rest of you-get to know me better!!! Anyway, I had a great birthday on Tuesday. I woke up to a kitchen decorated with about 50-60 balloons and streamers gallore. Jamie was making eggs benedict-one of my all time favorite breakfast foods and the kids were so excited about the "party". They kept asking me when the kids were coming over for the party and who was coming. I should have done a super huge bash of a party, but I really loved the way it turned out. My man took the day off from work and my mom came to visit me in Colorado. We spent the day shopping, shopping and shopping some more. Can I just say, I LOVE shopping with my mom. She's the best! Jamie is also a great shopping partner. He loves clothes and even shopping for bedding. We had a blast. That night Jamie and I went to dinner to The Melting Pott-a fondue restaurant. It was our first time and we liked it ok. I must admit it wasn't the best meal I've had. Dipping foods into a pot for a meal for some reason did not do much for either Jamie or I. And, because it was my birthday, Jamie let me pick ANY movie I wanted to watch. I dragged him to Fool's Gold. Good movie, good times. It was such a girly movie, my poor husband was the only man in the theatre-seriously. Anyway, thanks to everyone who called, stopped by and just made me feel special on my birthday. I really had an amazing time and wouldn't have changed it for anything. Thanks to all my friends and family. I am so blessed to have all of you in my life!

Oh, and Elisa-Your blog post about me was seriously hilarious! I laughed so hard when I read it. Jamie and I got such a kick out of it. Thanks for thinking of me. You're the best!

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! So glad it was a good one. I am looking forward to my 30s because I heard you are supposed to stop getting acne. Seriously, am I 15? I feel like I am when I look in the mirror! I don't have your email, or I would send you the directions you requested. post me your email and I will pass them along.
