My awesome birthday weekend

I have been so busy that I have not blogged about my incredible birthday weekend.

I turned 30 last Sat. (Oct. 3rd.) Saturday after Josh's soccer game, my mom took Joshua home with her and Jason and I cleaned the attic. Then we all had dinner at my mom's (yummy burgers.) Next we had cake with my extended family. Joshua made a cake and my mom made cream puffs. YUM!

I got two new pillows, note cards, a new Bible, a bracelet, a journal, candy, cookies, a t-shirt, a cell phone organizer (as silly as it sounds we needed this as my boys are constantly misplacing their cell phones), and Joshua made me a card with microwave popcorn and $5 in it (it was his own money, he is so sweet, but later he asked for the $5 back.)

The celebration continued on Sunday. My mom took my sister, cousin, and me to see Little House on the Prairie the musical at the Papermill Playhouse, staring Melissa Gilbert as ma. I love these books and the tv show. The musical was also great. That would have been way more than enough, but the best was still yet to come.

Finally, they took me to The Melting Pot restaurant for a surprise party with all my girlfriends. It was so cool. The Melting pot is a fondue restaurant. It was so yummy, especially dessert, dipping lots of goodies in chocolate.

I got awesome homemade earrings, a Target gift card, a Kohl's gift card, flowers, some cash, and a Wii Fit. I am so excited about using it. (I already spent the Target gift card and cash on myself-as per the instructions.)

My mom really outdid herself. She made sure I felt loved and special. It was the best birthday I have ever had. Also she really had me as I had no idea about the play (which I so wanted to see) or party. That took work, as I am so very nosy.

Mom, thanks for all you do and making my life and especially my 30th birthday, so special. I love you more than I can ever express. You are the best!!!
