Naomi's 30th Birthday
On November 13th, I turned the ripe old age of 30! Oddly enough, this is the ONLY picture I got of a week long celebration... but it was such a fun week that I decided to post about it anyway :)
The celebrations started on November 9th when Kevin got home from work, packed up some bags, grabbed the girls, and left the house! He took the girls over to our friends, Rob and Tiff's house, where he and Robert had a manly sleep over whilst watching 4 little girls under the age of 4!
A few minutes after Kevin left the house, Tiffany showed up at our house! Her birthday is 2 days before mine so we decided to celebrate them together with 24 hours of ZERO responsibility! Once she arrived we quickly hopped in the car and headed over to Chipotle to pick up our dinner. Then it was home to watch ALL of the Twilight Saga DVD's! We were up until 2 am, talking, watching, laughing, and eating!
The next morning we slept in until 7am! (we couldn't help it...we are still moms!) Then we made baked french toast, got dressed, and went SHOPPING! We shopped all day, making pit stops to get hot cocoa and eat sushi for lunch. Thanks to Tiffany's AMAZING shopping skills, I managed to come home with some really cute jewelry, a new sweater, a cardigan, new lotions, and a pair of jeans all under budget :)
Around 4:30pm on Saturday we headed back home to pick up our husbands and turn the kids over to some new babysitters. Then we drove on over to Outback and had some steak and a few good laughs before heading to Dairy Queen for some ice cream! Tiffany and I had SOOOOO much fun together and I definitely think we should make this an annual tradition!
The next day (November 11th) just happened to be my sister Becca's birthday, and since she lives close by now, we drove to Geneva to celebrate it with her! We had the BEST ham dinner, played some games, and ate lots of cake before heading back home to start my ACTUAL birthday week.
The next day consisted of much spoiling and hardly any work! Then on my REAL birthday, Kevin surprised me by coming home from work during his lunch break and making me creamed eggs on toast! That night he made me dinner, followed by caramel apples and Reese's peanut butter bars. YUMMMM!
Before going to bed Kevin gave me a gift card to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (does this man know me or what!?) and a Bodia Media arm band. The irony? He gave me a gift card to eat loads of chocolate and then he gave me something to help me lose the weight. (Truly, he's got me pegged!)
But the fun did not stop there! When Friday rolled back around again, Kevin took the girls and sent me out to the movie theater with a ton of my friends to watch Breaking Dawn part 2! We had so much fun hanging out at the movies with all the crazy teenagers... and at the end of it all, I decided that I am super glad to have lived these passed 30 years with so many incredible people in my life. Thank you to all of you, for EVERYTHING!
