I'm still young...


So I turned 30 on Sunday...yep, that's right the big 3-0! Cant believe I am officially a 30-year old woman. I still feel like I act like I am in 7th grade sometimes! And for those that are in their twenties and thinks 30 is old...well it's not! I'm still young! And, 30 is the new 20, and dont forget it! :) So, now that I got that out of the way, I can blog about my wonderful birthday weekend!

We started the festivities early by going out on Friday for a nice sit-down-wait-on-me dinner at Texas Roadhouse! That place is really fun. I loved my steak and yummy sweet potatoes. It was heavenly! Then on Saturday we watched Gunner play in his 2nd soccer game. He had lots of fun, scored a few goals, and as usual, probably had more fun just being there with his friends.
After that we went to a birthday party then came home and Justin watched the kids while I went to Women's conference and dinner with Rachael and her sis Karis. We had lots of fun and the time away from the kids was so nice. Thanks girlies! Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but the time I get to be away works wonders on my sanity as a parent.
Then Sunday Justin spoiled me rotten as usual by doing several little surprises, letting me relax and unwind and he also was so cute and had the boys give me my presents. Caleb gave me cute earrings (he picked them out with help from Dad and Gunner) and Gunner gave me pajama pants. How does he know I like jammie pants so much? Then Justin gave me a beautiful picture of the SLC temple. It is gorgeous and I love it. Thanks babe! Here's a picture of it from the website, but it doesn't do it justice!
My cute family minus Bree (she was sleeping when we took this pic)
Here's my sweet sis Kristin. She is such a great example to me and I love her so!
Then here's a movie of Caleb and Gunner blowing out the candles on my bday cake. I love my boys. My family is the best present of all! video

Happy birthday!! You're cake looks so pretty--Justin decorated it, I'm sure. He has so many hidden talents! The boys are so so so cute in the video. I love how Caleb got all surprised it was blown out and then just smiled huge anyway. Glad it was such a great weekend!

Happy Birthday! Yeah, 30 is still young. It's younger than I am, so it has to be!

Happy happy birthday Kari! Good to know that 30 really is not old...cause I'm almost there too! Time just goes by so fast when you have kids and a family....didn't the 7th grade seem to last forever compared to now.

Happy Birthday, Kari! Justin is awesome to get you that picture! I've seen it at DB and it is beautiful! How fun for you! Cute video of your boys. And remember, 30 is young! I too feel like I must be 21 or 22. It's so weird, isn't it? Hope you had a great day!
