Well, it’s official.
Not really sure how I feel about it.
Thirty never bothered me, I was pregnant with Tucker and was more bothered by being 7 months pregnant in the heat of the summer.
I think I had a great birthday.
My family was wonderful.
Grady took me out on a date Saturday night for Mexican food.
And of course you can’t leave out the margaritas!!!
Sunday morning I woke up to the best birthday present any momma could ask for.
THEY made my birthday awesome.
We did a little swinging.
And then I’d had enough.
Yet another part of getting old.
I can’t handle the “crazy” rides like I used to.
Momma was about to lose her cookies!
That morning after we woke up Grady called Tucker and had him retrieve my gifts.
I got this from Tucker.
This was the BEST part of it.
I’m going to keep this card forever. I know the effort that went into that name. He was especially proud of the heart he drew. He kept pointing to it when I was reading it.
THIS was the perfect gift.
Even Grady got me a card this year…
He thinks they’re pointless, I on the other hand love them. So after about 6 years, he got me a card with a great gift certificate to one of my favorite stores. Thanks, Honey!!!
Then THIS came in the mail Monday!
Isn’t it gorgeous!!!
I just LOVE it!
It’s from Stella and Dot.
My sister got it for me. Her sister-in-law is a Stella and Dot consultant.
I hopped onto their website and fell in love with their stuff. It’s the perfect costume jewelry.
It’s dressy enough to wear with a great cocktail dress and yet casual enough to dress up a t-shirt, jeans and fun sandals!
After many months of carrying around my “granny purse” I decided it was time to get a new one. I splurged on this cute little number with some of my birthday money.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this purse. I’m currently hooked on this taupe/putty color and the flowers are the perfect accent.
My FAVORITE thing about this bag…
my camera fits into it nicely without looking bulky and silly.
I ended my birthday with a quiet BBQ supper of beer butt chicken with my in-laws.
I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect birthday weekend. I spent time with the people who mean the most to me.
So, even though I’m NOT looking forward to the downhill ride to 40 I wouldn’t trade this phase of my life for anything.
It’s perfectly imperfect which is the only way I’d have it.
Peace, love and birthday wishes.
