Celebrating turning the big 3-0!

I turned 30 February 6th and celebrated all weekend long! Yes, it's a little weird not being in my twenties anymore. How could it not be...I spent the last decade with them. It's kind of like when there's a new year and you have to get used to writing the new date. However, I'm not sad at all about entering this new age group and feel as if I've more than earned it. My family has already grown to a family of four and I'm exactly where I want to be...maybe even a little ahead of schedule! I can already tell this is going to be a very good year!

 My Birthday celebration started early Friday afternoon when Devin came home early to watch the girls. My parents sent me to The Crescent Spa for a facial (which was wonderful!) and then I went and had my nails done. My parents came in town Friday night and we got a babysitter and went to Urbano Cafe. We decided that it had been since before Kate and Lily were born that we all got to go have a nice dinner out. Crazy! Dinner was so good and I always love a place where you can bring your own wine. We brought a special bottle that we purchased at Elizabeth Spencer on our first trip to Napa. Well worth the wait. It was amazing!Oh, and my mom made me an amazing white chocolate birthday cake that was so good. I definitely finished the last half of the cake all by myself!

The clever card my parents got me. I actually did buy a bottle of wine on my birthday and didn't get carded. It's like the person checking me out could sense I'm 30!
So sad this wine is gone

On Saturday morning Devin surprised me with a very special gift. I should turn 30 more often! He got me a beautiful blue topaz ring and I would love to show you a picture but it was one size too big. We took it to David Yurman to exchange and they ended up having to send it off for sizing. I won't get it back for two weeks. Sad face. It really is pretty though and I was pretty surprised. After that Devin and I headed to Fort Worth to celebrate my birthday together. We checked into our hotel and rented the Descendents which was a great movie. So glad we got to see it. Then we got ready to meet up with our friends Courtney and Robby for drinks. It was fun catching up and then Devin and I had dinner at Lili's Bistro on Magnolia. And the best part....sleeping in Sunday morning!

Devin had to travel a lot this week and my actual birthday was Monday. I was able to get a babysitter again and my good friends Catherine and Jennifer drove over from Fort Worth to take me to dinner at Urbano Monday night. It was so much fun catching up with them and I really appreciated them spending my actual birthday with me! Unfortunately, no pictures. Guess we were too busy talking and usual.

I couldn't have asked for a better Birthday. Thanks to everyone who made it so special!
