So, you have all been asking when the big 30th birthday party shin-dig would be posted. Well, your wait is over! Here's the big picture - Jaisha put together a "surprise" birthday party for me at our hangout - The Doghouse. Several weeks before the party, she confiscated my address book and sent everyone in it an invitation and a scrapbook page to complete. I have received some of the best pages - thank you!! There was such a great mix of people that attended. My grandparents, parents, in-laws, friends, and neighbors. I couldn't believe the turnout! She coordinated my favorite food (Mexican) and had Richard the Chef prepare fajitas on the grill - awesome! When I got to the party, I had a birthday crown and sash (complete with mini-alcohol bottles attached) waiting for me. Of course, there were great presents, friends and good times. There was even a purple star pinata! I didn't think it could get much better, then a star shaped chocolate cake appeared! The girl thought of it all. The best part was that she convinced my husband to stick around, even though it was opening hunting weekend! Overall, this was the best birthday I could have had. I appreciate everyone that came and contributed. Imagine, if it was this great at 30, what 40 will be like!
