Turning 30 was amazingly awesome. I really don't think I've ever had a better birthday. I felt completely totally loved and it lasted for 2 weeks. The day of my actual birthday I got up and felt really sore, thanks to my kickboxing class the night before. :) At work everyone from teachers, students, administrators, to parents wished me a happy birthday. My kids brought me presents and one mom brought cupcakes for our class. It was a great day!
After that I headed home and my dad showed up to grill steaks and drink martinis. I got tons of phone calls, emails, facebook messages and Christina sent me 30 birthday cards. Then it was off to New Orleans with Christina. My mom paid for our hotel so we got to stay in the Sheraton....very nice. To top it all of my little brother surprised me, literally by jumping out as I was coming out of the bathroom. I had a great time in New Orleans with Christina and my brother. They really made me feel super special the whole weekend and I know I'll never forget this trip.
Then a week later I got to celebrate again with my super awesome Karoake party thrown by Carmela. My mom even came to town. The party was super fun and lots of people showed up which again reminded me of how loved I really am. It's not that I don't know this but sometimes I forget, I'm human right. The best part was the amazing cake Carmela made by hand for me. It was amazing and everything I've ever wanted in a cake. It definitely was a turning 30 cake. I'm still so impressed that she made such a great cake, not that I didn't think she could but it was pretty intricate. It also tasted wonderful.
Before I had turned 30 I was kind of depressed about it and I really wanted to lose a bunch of weight so I could impress people and I wanted to be healthier. The losing a whole bunch of weight didn't work out as well as I had hoped but my friends and family made me feel so loved that it didn't even matter. I will never forget this birthday and I hope that everyone who made everything happen know how much I appreciate them and love them. I only hope that I can make them feel as special as I did this birthday. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
