maybe turning 30 isn't so bad

My big 3-0 was last Saturday. I was told to dress up fancily. That was it. This is what I saw when I walked into Tim's office....
With the help of some awesome friends, Tim pulled off an amazing night. 

Yes, Tim made the cake!

Tim thought of everything. We had some of my favorite foods for dinner, Ahi Tuna, italian sodas and gelato with our coconut cake. Everyone else brought a side to share.

Then we laughed until we cried playing a super fun game

I just had to put this picture on because Tim's face is Hilarious!
Tim also made me a stretched canvas print for my Birthday. We were married in the Manti Temple, so before we left Utah, we went and took some pictures so we could one day, have this! I love it.
So I guess turning 30 isn't that bad when you are surrounded by the best friends and family a girl could ask for. Thanks everyone for an amazing 30th birthday!


A blog I read mentioned the cutest tutorial! I thought it looked pretty simple, so I ran to the fabric store (and called my friend who had a sewing machine because I still need to get mine fixed!) We found our jersey knit on sale for 50% off plus we had a coupon for an additional 20%. Can't beat that. We busted out one dress each in like an hour. I think it's so cute, I may have to make another!

Shosted's visit

We were lucky enough to have some more visitors this past week. My SIL and BIL and their family came out for a week to spend some time with us. We did the norm...rafting, coast ya know. The good stuff. 

These next few pictures are of a desperate man on a quest to open his beer without a bottle opener. Yes, he's a dork. 
seatbelt maybe?

Banana slugs in the redwoods, they are super cool, but super slimy! yuck

Thanks for spending time with us! We loved having you!!
