.a 30th birthday in snapshots.

birthday girl & her infamous birthday balloons.
 Well, the day has come and gone. And I am 30.
The good news is that I didn't combust or anything. Actually, I feel pretty much the same as 29.
And apparently I can still pass for 26 or 27 as per my brother-in-law so that's great news!

As for my big birthday shenanigans? Well, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves [there's a lot of them].
And yes, you would be looking at a 2-day celebration. I'm spoiled like that ;)
['it's your birthday', a night at the tracks, winning bid high-fivers, a gaggle of friends, surrounded by helium] 
 [sharing our birthday celebrations (there is 4 of us within a week), extinguished candles, practicing with sweet mini isla, peter and the balloons] 
[beautiful flowers from mrs. ellington, a new birthday outfit, getting spoiled from my husband, some exotics from my aunt val, a tired & a very pregnant 30 year old on her way to bed] 
[birthday morning french toast (exactly as i ordered with whip cream, syrup, and fruit!), dressed up for round 2, leaving for my dad's big bbq shin-dig & we can't forget my balloons!]
[bocce ball and a little pong ball practice, guests starting to arrive, my 2 lovely mothers,
homemade mixed fruit and peach pie]  
[kazia on old jack, my dad taking the kids for a ride around the yard, thumbs up for riding lena, doubling with the big kids, help with blowing out the candles & my "fluffy chocolate cake']

    1. Thanks! I really did get seriously spoiled this year and feel a little embarrassed about it. Must have been a very nice girl or faked it really well ;)

      And that blue dress I bought at Gap {part of the GAP Pure line}. Nothing to special about it, but comfy, comfy, comfy!
