Tinkerbell 30th!

I turned 30 this year.  That's right - three + zero.

Well, my wonderful husband decided to throw me a surprise party!  He recruited my sister and my friend, CC, to help him out.  I had NO clue - I was totally surprised.  The party was at my parent's house and some family and friends were there to help me celebrate!  It was a blast!

What's even better is that it was a Tinkerbell party.  Quite appropriate, I thought. Had to keep a youthful theme going, right?

So we ate some delicious food, had cake {of course}, played games - we even had a Tinkerbell pinata.  And we ended the night with a little Glee Karaoke on the Wii - thanks to my sis for that present!.  {Side note - Emmy and Kate totally fight over the microphone every time we play it.  Note to self: get another mic for the Wii!}.

The group that helped me celebrate:

The pinata!  My dad got some great {ahem} action shots:
{The first person never breaks it, right???}

{Lindsey knocked it off the rope!}

{Jake and Derek playing baseball with the pinata}

Me and my sis:
{Yes, I had a birthday crown :) }

So thanks to all my friends that could make it to the party and thanks to Jake, Linds and CC for putting it together!  There's nothing like friends and family to ease the pain of becoming another year older.
The thing is, I still act like feel like I'm 20.
I was kind of freaking out about it after I turned 29.  I couldn't believe I would be turning 30 years old.  Cuz that's always sounded old to me.
But you know what?  I've decided that 30 isn't too bad.  In fact, as one of my friends told me, 30 is the new 20!  And I feel just as good as I did when I was 20.  I'm getting older AND wiser.  So here's to another 30 years!
