My 30th birthday

Welp- I turned 30 last Sunday. It’s true.

Mom and I went to get cupcakes one afternoon which was super yummy.

Then my family and I went out to dinner and little Bud was awesome until about half way through so in order to spare the other customers from a hollerin’ toddler, he and and I entertained each other Β at the end of the table. At first I was like, “This is the best birthday I’ve ever had….” (said super sarcastically) but then, I was like, “This is the sweetest birthday I’ve ever had…”(said not super sarcastically) because it was just me and him at the end of the table just having our own conversation and making our own little memories.

The next morning my brother and sister-in-law gave me an AMAZING present, a “30th birthday” where they had family and friends send in pictures of them with the number 30 in the picture. It was crazy thoughtful and wonderful. I’ve looked at it a million times.

And oh yeah, I GOT A CALL THAT SAM WAS COMING HOME TO SURPRISE ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY?! Did I forget to mention that? I can’t even describe to you the look on my face when my phone rang. That little sneak had been keeping it a secret and only told them to call me 18 hr ahead of time before his ceremony. So, the next 18 hours was spent cleaning the house like crazy, squealing, and shaving. My brother was there to capture the whole thing on film so I’ll post the short-film when he’s done.

Bud needs to work on his excited face….

I’ve been on total cloud-9 since he’s been back. I’ll try and keep posting but have grace for me as I’m soaking in this time!
