Spoiled rotten!

So, you may or may not know, but I recently celebrated a very important event: my birthday! And this year was a milestone for me. I had a few minutes of freaking out and then I decided that it’s just another number so there’s really no reason to be upset about it. And that was that.

My heart is still full to overflowing with everybody who reached out. From Facebook comments to sending cards across the U.S. (thanks Robin, Corey, Addie and Jack) to coming to my birthday party, it was a wonderful time.

It started with a family birthday party when I went to visit my sisters over President’s Day weekend. My parents came down and we celebrated.

Here’s a few photos commemorating the occasion:

I not only picked out a few things for myself, but I also got to help my sisters pick out some new clothes. It was fun!

At work that week, my supervisor not only took me out to lunch at one of Salt Lake City’s nicest restaurants, she also gave me a beautiful butterfly charm from Swarovski and dropped this tasty cake off for me, to my surprise and delight.

As is tradition for me, I took my birthday off work. Life is much too short for me to be working on my birthday I’ve decided. I slept in, went to the gym, had a massage and had an amazing party at my house! My roomies were fantastic in organizing everything, decorating and providing a great collection of food for the party. This is what it looked like.

Okay so I might’ve been having lots of fun playing at my party so I don’t have a lot of pictures of that. But here’s a picture of the whole group, sans a couple who had to leave early.

This is my birthday dance with Max. He is so sweet!

And, finally, this is my family birthday party on Saturday afternoon/evening with my aunt, cousins and some dear friends.

See, I told you I seriously got spoiled. It was a wonderful birthday and a great way to pass a milestone birthday.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, Chucky made an appearance for my birthday. I’m just that cool so he couldn’t stay away.

Once again, thanks to everyone who made my birthday so special.

Looks like a fun time! Glad you got our card, I wasn't sure if I had the right address. :) Looks like you had a great day, taking work off and having a great party! Bring on the 30's!
