THIS is what 30 looks like

Daniel posted this on the mirror-it's my invitation to my 30th birthday party.

Here's my first picture as a 30 year old.

There were lots of presents....

(I get really excited about new eye shadow)

(getting the Garmin Forerunner and pondering if this means I have to start running again...)

I was pretty desperate to get into my new jeans...

I make 30 look good.

Getting ready to eat a lot of yummy french toast!

More presents!!

While Daniel prepared the party, a friend took me for a manicure. I came home to this...

and this...

(Daniel cut all of that out of foam!)

Daniel made chick fil a chicken sandwiches. I have NEVER tasted anything so close. Words cannot describe how amazing it tasted. I'm having him make it again tomorrow. Seriously, delish!

(he also made the french fries.)

My cake!!! White almond wedding cake!

My friend made this for me, and even had tulips, my fave! It was soooooo good!!

My reaction when I saw it...

Enjoying the moment with my man.

I love that we have the same expression here.

Presents can be confusing..

Until you realize that someone just gave you the Anne of Green Gables dvd.

I'm not one to hide my excitement.

30 is going to be a great year!
