Three-One... REALLY?!

I don't feel old enough to be over 30. Ugh, I hate even saying it! I feel like I'm still in my early 20's and that my knowledge topped off at that time. :) I know that really isn't true, nor would I EVER want to go back. I love that my life, marriage, and friendships have grown deeper as life has happened, BECAUSE life has happened. I still don't know how I got so old all of a sudden.

We had a family day of resting, presents, cake, dinner at Cracker Barrel, home made birthday cards. I LOVED it! I love my family :)

Buuutttt... anyone that knows me will attest that one of my main love languages is gifts. Dan did a great job!

Dan and I were blessed to be able to go to St Louis for the night! Thanks to our friends Beth & Russ who watched the boys. Also a shout out to Hotwire for getting a good rate and finding out after purchase that it was a Hyatt Regency with a 17th floor view of the arch!

What made us head to St Louis, 4 1/2 hours you ask? Six. Words. So You Think You Can Dance. Their live tour was in STL for one night! It was the closest city tour to where we live, AND it was my birthday weekend! They dance like I'd love to dance!

The ONLY downside of the trip.... they did not allow me to bring my DSLR camera into the arena and I was so sad. The last couple pictures are from my phone.

Anyways, here are some of the pictures from my day this year.

The boys excited to give me their wrapped gifts

Dalton loves his shrimp!
Cake time!
My boys insisted I have a pink cake since I'm a girl. They decorated the top in their favorite sprinkles of red, green and blue

WOW!! Fabulous weekend indeed!!

First, I totally know what you mean. I have an 11-year old, for Pete's sake, and there are days that I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. How can we be in our 30s??

Second, I can't believe how big your boys look! So sweet that they wanted mama to have a pink cake. Love the silly bands, too. ;)

Awesome, awesome about the concert. Very worth the drive!

Happy late birthday!

Over 30? I'll be getting a zero next birthday & it isn't 30! My favorite is your cake with the pink coconut, plus the boys' sprinkles on top. LOVE that!
