Bye Bye Twenties!

This past weekend I said goodbye to my twenties. I turned the big 3-0 on Friday the 24th. It's definitely bittersweet. I think my 30's will be fun and enlightening, but you're just not "young" anymore. I'll make it. My sweet husband sent me flowers at work on Thursday. I was very surprised, and the girls at work thought he had done something wrong until they found out it was my birthday. Then they thought he was super sweet. He also have me a new digital camera which I badly needed. I think I said "I love this camera" a 100 times this past weekend. It's a Sony Cybershot with 10.1 mega pixels! It's very nice, and it's red too. You'll be seeing a lot better quality pics on here now.
Friday night, we went to Toyama at Nipper's Corner for dinner. Clay, Leslie, Amy, Aimee, Russ, Curry, and Jake ate dinner with us. It was a lot of fun. I was happy to celebrate my birthday with good friends. After dinner, Clay and Leslie had us back at their house for cake and ice cream. My mom and dad met us there with a homemade strawberry cake, my favorite! Will and Drennon stopped by after the MBA game.

My pretty flowers Ben sent me at work.

On Saturday night, we went to Mom and Dad's for birthday dinner. Nothing like your mom cooking you birthday dinner. We had fillets, twice baked potatoes, green beans, frozen fruit salad, rolls, and ice cream with homemade chocolate sauce. Those of you who have had my mom's chocolate sauce know it's amazing! My parents gave me a Wii, which I have been wanting for some time. I can't wait to get Rock Band and have everyone over. Drennon has already named our band "Wives with Attitude." I think that's very fitting.
Thanks to everyone who made my birthday so special. It truly was a year to remember!
I want to dedicate this post to my faithful readers, Amy and Aimee!!
