Changing Decades

At first it hurt to say, but now I'm over it- I'M 3-0! That's THIRTY, 30!

Luckily for me, my birthday fell during my spring break so I even got the day off!  I enjoyed a massage and just relaxing during the day. Much needed stress relief!

Jarad made it a fun and special day all day! Little notes, text, etc. throughout the day and then took me to a new resturaunt for dinner.

 May be old in number, but we're young at heart!

 I'm so lucky to have such a great husband to celebrate with!

He's so awesome- he even planned a little surprise party that was waiting for me upon our return from dinner. My family and friends were all so wonderful to come decorate and celebrate with me!

 Cara, Lori, Me, Mom & Reise

 Amber & Amelia, Lindsey & Penelope and I

 The Boys- Kevin, Joe & Jarad

 Even at 30, I'm a daddy's girl!

 Don't mind my crazy-eyes! ha- Me & gal pal Megan. :)

 Who also brought me some fun flowers to enjoy.

And Jarad gave me a hand-selected bouquet of some of my favorite flowers!!(picture taken numerous days later so some of the flowers don't look fresh but they were!)

Thanks to everyone for the texts, the phone calls, facebook posts and celebrating the changing of a decade! It was a great day of being 30!

My new mantra- 30 & flirty & thriving!!!

Luck of the Irish

For St. Patrick's Day, we went with Joe & Cara to an Irish Pub.

 Unfortunetly, Jarad forgot his wallet including his ID so he had to get X's showing they couldn't confirm his being 21 or over. Really?! Jk honey- so he and Joe drove home while Cara and I waited for a table.

And the wait was worth it-

 Jarad's shepards pie....SO delicious!!

 My dinner was a potato pancake filled with chicken, bacon (makes everything better) and cheese.  Pretty nasty! The best thing we ate was our appetizer- corned beef nachos- AMAZING!

 The tables were mostly enclosed and the atmosphere was totally legit! Great Irish tunes from a live band and all.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
