Happy Birthday to me!

Well, yesterday was my 30th birthday. All year I have been a little bummed about turning 30, but now that I am (and can't avoid it anymore!) I think I'm ok with it. It also helped that it was a great day for me.
I had so many well wishes from friends and family all day long, that it really made me feel good. some of my sisters made a special post about me in their blogs and said such nice things, I feel so grateful for my wonderful family.
Here a a few highlights on my day and I did.
This is the present Derek got me. I actually opened it Chistmas evening because he was to excited to give it to me to wait for my actual birthday. Many of you have heard me mention my favorite bath and body store: Lush Cosmetics (lush.com) Well, he got me the motherload! They have different gift packages, and this is the biggest with the most variety in it. Many of the items I have never even used before. I was so excited about it!

Here is the cute husband making me a cake. He likes to make the double round cake to show off his culinary skills. I chose funfetti this time.

Another gift from Derek. He "claimed" that the florist at Safeway just gave it to him because she heard it was my birthday! Funny guy. After he finished the cake we went out on a date. We went to a nice place to eat, then hung out at Barnes and Noble until it was time to see our movie, "Marley and Me." I have read the book and I would recommend it to all of you to read. It is well written, and I thought they did a perfect job adapting the movie. It was just as I pictured it. I really enjoyed it but, maybe bring a tissue.
On they way to the mall we saw this bus. Who do you think rides in this bus?

Well, now I am embarking in my 30's. Someone at work said, "thirty, flirty, and thriving" Well, here I come!
Thanks again to all of my wonderful friends and family for thinking of me!

Happy birthday!!! Looks like a fun day. I also loved the Christmas days pictures. Derek will ahve to become a morning person when kids roll around. Haha, I haven't slept in since having kids unless it's prearranged the night before with Zeke that it's my turn to sleep in.
