Firstly, I must clarify my feelings on turning 30. I have been more than excited for this day to finally arrive. I've waited for so long to join the 30 club! I think I've finally figured out WHY I've wanted this so badly. I guess I figured that when I turned 30 I'd finally feel like an adult, mature, a little more wise and sure of myself. And guess what... I feel exactly the same as I did 2 days ago, 2 months ago and even several years ago! So, I guess that theory has gone down the drain. But that doesn't mean that 3o won't be fabulous - because from day 1 it absolutely was!
Can I just say that I've never been more pampered in my ENTIRE LIFE?! Jeremy laid out the most extravagant plan for my big day. I won't give all the details because it may get a little overwhelming for some... including myself!
Let's just say that it was the perfect day. I didn't cook one meal. I got to do ALL my favorite things. I even got to pick out several birthday presents for myself as I followed the elaborate scavenger hunt Jeremy set up earlier in the day. What a guy.
These are my beautiful birthday flowers. Here's a picture of my BIG gift - a new stainless kitchen faucet with a retractable head! Jeremy installed it beautifully as I was out on my birthday scavenger hunt adventure. Isn't it gorgeous? And make sure to check out "Jennifer's Life in 5 Minutes" the video Jeremy made from pictures of now and then. Seriously, could I have caught myself a better man?
Here are some fun pictures and the video from the evening's "surprise party" at my favorite place to dine - Me N Eds!
Those are my freshly pedicured toenails and I don't know about you, but I think the Stoffs want us to vote YES on 8...
Thanks to everyone who came. I know how hard it is to drag kids around on a school night. It was a fun night of family and friends. Thanks to Karen for being our photographer and thanks to Stephanie for winning prizes for all the kids - you made their night! Jeremy asked later what was the best part of my day and I had to say that it was just being with you all. There is no better gift than time with loved ones.
