My Birthday!

I feel bad, because I don't think I ever blogged about Landon's 30th Birthday. Guys, I'm sort of failing at the blog thing. But I will persist! I don't want this time in our life to be lost, or solely on Instagram...Just trust that his 30th birthday was epic (many of you were involved) and I think he felt properly celebrated.

My birthday was great, too. So far being 30 is pretty awesome. The kids and Landon spoiled me with a homemade dinner the night before, plus presents and gifts galore!
I loved being with my cute family!

Landon had some more tricks up his sleeve, but we'll get to those. ;)

My awesome friends also took me out for a riotous time!
 Complete with my own GIANT balloon to tote around the mall with me. Yeah. That wasn't embarrassing AT. ALL.
I don't know when the last time I laughed that hard was. These girls are my lifeline here in Seattle. This is the first time in my life I've consistently hung out with "girl friends" and I gotta say - it's pretty fun!

I was talking to another friend who texted me to say Happy Birthday - she jokingly asked me if all my "dreams" had come true like we always thought they would. I laughed because of course life is never exactly what you think it's gonna be, but the statement got me thinking. In 30 years of life I graduated from college, have had 4 different jobs that I loved, been to Europe twice, got married in the temple to the man of my dreams, have 2 beautiful kids, and live in a great place with great friends. I'm actually pretty glad that my grand scheme of life didn't turn out how I planned's so much better!!!
