Celebrations and Vacations, Oh My!

Wow, what a month it has been.  I have THE BEST husband, family and friends. 

On my actual birthday, my friends gathered for dinner and drinks here in town to celebrate.  It was a great time, and I ate lots of these:

Then the weekend after my birthday, we were supposed to be visiting my family at the coast to celebrate my grandma's 90th birthday, but instead my husband had rented a house and they threw me a surprise birthday party with my best friends and a lot of family.  We got to sit out here and relax all weekend. 

We took a boat trip and hung out on the beach a bit and ended Saturday night with a big shrimp boil.  It was perfect!  Let's just say I definitely was surprised and ummm may have not been so nice to him leading up to my birthday.  Yes, I have a lot of making up to do!!

But the party doesn't stop yet.  Tomorrow, my husband and I leave for Costa Rica for 7 nights!  It's a much needed vacation.  There's so much going on that I'll have to catch you up on next week.  I've been a little under the weather this week, and I'm hoping I start feeling better soon to really enjoy all of this:

Here's to enjoying the last days of summer!  Cheers!

The Big 3-0!!

Yes, the day has finally come.  I am turning the big 3-0!  It is kind of sad to say goodbye to my 20's.  I guess it's hit me a little harder than I thought it would.  There were so many good times.... but I am looking forward to all the many things to come in this next stage of my life.  Tonight, I'm looking forward to celebrating with my friends and sweet husband over dinner and drinks.  Hope all of you have a lovely weekend as well.
