Starting the 30th birthday celebration

Friday, June 24, 2011

Today, we kicked off my weekend long birthday celebration.  The countdown is on til Monday and the big 3-0!  Lauren and Asa came to Meridian to take me to lunch and help me celebrate.  I got to pick the place — Cracker Barrel, because we love that place!

When I pulled up behind their vehicle, I was handed these!  Aren't they beautiful!!

While we were waiting on our food, I opened my gifts.

Thank you Cristal for designing my birthday gifts and thank you Lauren for knowing exactly what I like!  To see her work, click here.
