So now I am 30. That wasn't so bad! No, really it wasn't!
I recently had the opportunity to reconnect and have a girls night with some high school friends. It was so great to see everyone (they looked great and multiplied)
I was telling them that I have no regrets looking back on my life! I don't know if they believed me? I also know that as much as I loved high school and would not change a thing, I would NEVER want to go back and relive it! There are just so many great things about being an adult that 30 seems just perfect to me! I am loving this life stage!
For my birthday, Phil and I actually got away and saw a movie!
I got to pick (my birthday) so "Eat Pray Love" it was! Then after the movie we went out to eat and of course after watching the movie I wanted SPAGHETTI!
Luke made me a special birthday brownie at grandma and grandpas house! He was so proud (and still is!)
My dirty 30 continued in Washington D.C. with our friends Peter and Tina! Tina ordered cupcakes for my birthday from Gerorgetown Cupcakes. Maybe you have seen them on TLC. They are two sisters that left their jobs to open a cupcake business in Georgetown. They have a reality show called "DC Cupcakes" We walked all the way there and discovered that they are VERY popular. There was a massive line just to get in the tiny bakery store front. Tina was super savvy and ordered ahead of time. So NO waiting in line for us. Tina walked right in!
As you can see, they are very beautiful and chic but damaged. No big deal really except we decided to take them back and see if they could be fixed/replaced.
So Tina skipped the line again and stepped inside. I snapped a photo of her from the outside! That's her pony tail!
While we waited, Phil took this photo of me waiting outside the bakery. See the line on the right hand side?
Score. Not only did they give us a new box of cupcakes but they let us have the old box as well! It was a birthday miracle! As we walked away from the shop all of us compulsively decided to take a quick bite (of the damaged box) in an alley way beside J.Crew! So we all grabbed a cupcake each and snarfed it up! A very good way to enjoy coveted damaged cupcakes.
Later that evening we enjoyed a celebration sans kids after they went to bed. Peter made birthday gelato. It was chocolate and delish with the cupcakes!
Blowing out the tiny taper!
What a memorable birthday?! So why do we blow out candles on our birthday?
