All I really wanted was to hang with my little family and do a nice dinner with the hubs. 31 could be my year to really celebrate :)
Well 2 weekends ago we were headed to the race track with our other friends and their kid. I was excited to go because the track is so fun and very family oriented. I was also excited because our friend is pregnant so I would have a non drinking buddy to complain with.
The morning we were leaving the hubs had to leave our house for a couple hours to go look at a house with his sister that she was interested in buying - I guess it needed work and she wanted his opinion. This definitely struck me as odd because I knew his sister wasn't looking at any places that needed work. I started thinking, what if we are going to the track then coming home to a party at our house! I brushed it off and off we went to the track.
Walking to the outside family area we "randomly" ran into my cousin and his friend. I thought that was a little odd as well but I also thought it wasn't weird he would be there, the track is a really fun place to go.
Well, walking a few more steps I saw some of my family and they all screamed SURPRISE!! I looked back at the hubby and just smiled and now I honestly can't even remember what I said. I'm sure it was something like, you jerk!! LOL
It meant so much to me that all my friends/family came out to celebrate and I was also so touched by the fact that this was all my hubby's doing. He coordinated everything - from the invites, to the decorations, to the food, to renting the space at the track and more, he really outdid himself and I couldn't believe he did all that for me. He kept saying 30 is a big birthday and needed to be celebrated! I guess in the end, he was right :)

On my actual birthday, I took the day off work so I could spend the morning with the kids and hubs. I woke up to the house decorated and 30 balloons scattered all around - seriously the hubby is just scoring points left and right in my book :)
Brayden and I had made an ice cream cake the night before and thought having a piece at 9am sounded like a fantastic idea
We then headed to lunch at a little mexican place near our house then took the kids to the library for a little.
Later that night my friends came over and we ordered pizza and just hung out. It was such a fun day :)
I am not really all about my own birthday but the fact that I get to spend with my own little family now makes it 1000 times better. Seeing how happy they are just lights up my world.
