It's My Birthday Too, Yeah

Have I mentioned that Chris and I have birthdays exactly a week apart?

And that Chris totally won the who-can-make-the-other-person's-birthday-cooler contest this year?

In celebration of my having survived 30 years, Chris threw me a Survivor birthday party. (Side Note: If you don't watch Survivor and look down your nose at those who do, I pity you. You are missing some fabulous television. Go watch it. And while you are at it, watch Community and Friday Night Lights, too.)

It was awesome. AWESOME. Chris, aka Jeff Probst, planned it. Frank and Kara did the decorations. Erin did the food. I was surrounded by people I love.

Pictures below. The ones that actually look good were taken by my awesome friend, Marne.

Genius! Will we be able to survive the next 30?! I'd say we have a good support team. I know that party must have rejuvenated you, I had a little surprise party myself and I am feeling apt to take on the gray hairs and everything else that the next thirty may entail. Fabulous pictures I miss all those faces.
Love you.

Yes, Chris definitely won the birthday party planning competition, but then again, 3-0 is worth a Survivor party. Funny, my Chris and I have birthdays exactly TWO weeks apart.

Happy 30th! What a great party idea. Everything looked great and sounded like so much fun.

What a FANTASTIC PARTY!!!! Enjoy 30 because after 31, you just stop paying attention to how old you're getting. I honestly forget what 30 I am now...32? Hopefully not 33! Did I miss it?!
