The Big Three Oh!!!

So today I turned 30...

I was a bit unsure how I was going to feel in the transition of leaving my 20's and entering my 30's. On one side, I was sad to be leaving the only part of adulthood I have ever known and yet on the other hand, I am so excited to see what my 30's have in store for me. In the past year and a half, my life has taken such a turn that I truly never imagined being where I am right now...I met the man that God had in store for me, fell in love, married my soulmate and best friend and bought a house. Which brings me back to being excited for the future...only my Father knows what is in store for us next year and I am anxiously awaiting each day!

I have wonderful friends and family who wanted to make sure that I had a fabulous day! At midnight last night, my hubby told me happy birthday and I got a text from Lisa too! My day started off with a phone call from my parents singing to me and then my Grams singing to me and so many texts from my friends and family and I left the house with a big smile on my face! I arrived at school and found my room decorated in black and numerous "over the hill" signs! Brandon, Charlotte, Chris, Judy and Teresa all had a hand in making sure I felt old today! I wore a crown that said 30, a necklace that read 30 and a pin with lips that said "Kiss me! I'm 30!" They all made my day even better! I had some gifts from the Levinson's which helped add to my OU collection! BOOMER! I continued to get texts, emails and phone calls from so many people...some with mean things to say and others with sweet things...no matter what was said, they were all thinking of me! Here are some pics of my day!

The DEATH table with black roses!
My throne doused in black!
The front part of my classroom...notice the wheelchair!
They even got a hold of my computer!
My cake is so pretty and tasted oh so good!
Lighting the candles!
Me and Brando Lane!
Nice face! Those cheeks are a family trait!
They were trick candles!

My parents, Carey, me, Nana, Papa and Aunt Nay Nay went to Red Lobster for the birthday dinner. Mine is today and my Nana's is tomorrow so we always celebrate it together! It was a great meal and we had lots of fun with me still wearing my "30" jewelry!

The wonderful parents who brought me into this world!
How blessed am I??? I have a great family!
Papa, Nana and Me!
Me and Aunt Nay Nay
I love my husband so much! He is the best!
Happy Birthday Nana!
They are singing to us birthday girls! It was a little embarrassing!
Opening presents!
MMMM..I love the smell of my candle!
A new OU shirt!
Love my Reef flip flops!
A new COACH purse!!! WHOO HOO!!!
My beautiful plant and balloons that my awesome parents and wonderful brother gave me!

I had such a wonderful day and love and appreciate each and every one of you who helped make it so special!

God Bless You!
