The Big 3-0
B-day Update: I had a really nice dinner with my family and closest girlfriends. It was really nice. My hubs got me a 3 hour spa package from Jackson Ruiz! Sweet! It's a facial, body polish/massage, hand and foot treatments, plus it comes with full size products too! I tried to upload photos, but blogger won't let me :(

I'm back from Chicago, and today's the day! I'm 30 and that's okay with me. I'm excited to see what my 30s will be all about. I met some of my best blogging friends last Friday for a b-day happy hour and I had so much fun!

They are all hilarious and fun and their labor stories are awesome. Now I REALLY don't want kids (totally kidding.....kind of....).

My trip was really fun, and even though I still hate flying (not at all helped by the CRAPPY landing in Chicago--I saw other people looking quite nervous as well, so it wasn't just me), it was worth it to see Weezie. She took me to lunch for my birthday, and we were able to catch up on the last 3-4 months. I miss talking to her everyday. She is one of the nicest and funniest people I have ever met.

I also got to see D, whom I met when we were case clerks at the firm. She just passed the bar, so she's an attorney now! She and her boyfriend took me to Lula for dinner which was really good. I ate like a piggy.

It was so good to see her too, and she was amazed that I actually hopped on a plane to come see her! The weather was god awful. It thunderstormed and even hailed when we were getting in her car to go to dinner. (You can see the wet street behind us, and her boyfriend's cigarette smoke in the foreground). Here are some photos from the next day (which was beautiful).


I just love that town!!! I'm off to get my hair done for my birthday dinner! Talk to ya later.

Good Luck on the first day on the new job! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Blogger Shell said...

Damn you're old. Just kidding. I'm older than you so there's something to always remind yourself so you feel much better. Carrie reminds me all the time.

Actually I did like turning 30. It's the years after that are a little rough!

Happy (now very belated) Birthday!

I was out of town and unable to read blogs, so I'm late in wishing you a FABULOUSLY happy birthday!! Looks like a lot of fun in Chicago-- too bad we couldn't coordinate a meeting in O'Hare! Next time...
