Weekend Wrap Up

What a four day weekend it was! I didn't get anything craft related done at all, but the weekend was jam packed with family goodness.

Thursday, the fam went to my aunt Aida's house for Thanksgiving. Literally, everyone showed up this year. It was packed, it was loud, and it was a ton of fun. Of course, no Thanksgiving would be complete without Dirty Grandma. This year, she had us cracking up because she was singing a Rhianna song. She's always got something up her sleeve.

On Saturday, I turned the big 3-0! Let's just say it's the 5th anniversary of my 25th birthday, mmkay? My family surprised me by driving to the dirty Jerz and meeting us at a restaurant. I had no idea they were coming, especially since my mom called to apologize that they couldn't see me. Sneaky sneaky!

Mmmm, cake.

Hubs got me an awesome gift,,, a kindle! He knows what a book nerd I am, haha. Lord help anyone who tries to talk to me on the bus now. ;)

My friends at work also went into super sneaky mode this year. They threw me a surprise party at work and made a scrapbook for me. It's the awesomest book ever. I can't show you every page, but here are a few of my favs.
This is the "Moving to Jersey" page.

This is the "Back to School" page. Tell me that crop job doesn't make you laugh? Haha!

And this is the "Cougar" page. Sheesh, I'm old enough to be labeled a cougar now? I thought 30 was the new 20?

Those crazy kids didn't stop there. As if the scrapbook wasn't enough, look what they gave me. Do they know me or what? I have no idea what to use it on. Any ideas? I want to use it wisely!

Thanks to my friends and family for making my 30th birthday traumatic awesome and memorable!
P.S. - They're lucky I didn't try karate chopping anyone when they jumped out at me in the restaurant! Who am I kidding? ;)

Happy Birthday you sweet young thing!!!!!!! What a great bundle of surprises for you. I was smiling all the way through the post.

Happy belated birthday! You are so NOT old enough to be a cougar, you young'un you! What I wouldn't give to be 30 again, seeing as I'll be a whopping 37 next month!

You have awesome coworkers!! At most of my jobs, I've been lucky to get a card for my birthday - maybe Cleveland folks are just cheap!

And those stories about that Dirty Grandma of yours crack me up, LOL!

Happy Birthday! It seems as though you thoroughly enjoyed it. Blessings to you for many years to come :)

Ha ha! Great party!

No, we're not cougars. We're MILFs. Subtle difference mainly in the age! LOL! You don't hit cougar territory until at least 45!
