The Big 3-0!!!

It's official. I'm 30. I hit the big 3-0 on Friday. I can't believe it, but it's true. Friday some of my family and friends threw me a surprise get-together at Dave & Buster's. We had a great time and I was surprised to see my parents in town. I thanked everyone for the great evening. Little did I know that this was just the "decoy surprise party". The next day our friends, Dewayne and Brandi said they wanted to take me to lunch for my birthday. Saturday evening we had a special dinner planned for the volunteers at our church, so David said before we could go to lunch we need to pick up some stuff that we needed for the dinner from one of our church member's homes. When we got there, Brandi had to use the restroom so we walked around to the back of our friend's house and then..."SURPRISE!" Party #2...the "real party". It was a Luau-themed party and as soon as I saw everyone I scanned the crowd for a friend of mine who I had really been missing...my dear friend, Katie. And she was there! I couldn't believe it and it brought tears to my eyes. She lives close to the Georgia-Florida line and I just haven't seen her in a really long time. A lot of our family was there from out of town and several friends from church. We had a great time and they really went all out with 2 big Honey-baked hams and all kinds of great foods. My friend Trista from Sugar & Spice Sweets made the cake of course!

It was delicious!!! My favorite...chocolate-chocolate chip!
Didn't Trista do an amazing job???

Thank you to my sweet hubby, my big brother, Jason and my sis-in-law, Esther for all of your hard work in putting this together for me!!! Thanks also to my parents, Brien & Hannah, Burt & Joy, Trista, and everyone else who helped out with this!!! I had a great 30th birthday!!!

In other news, please be praying for my brother and my sis-in-law. They got some difficult news yesterday regarding their journey to become parents. You can read Esther's blog about it HERE.
