Another year older....

in the words of my youngest brother"dude that's a ton of candles"... as if I did not notice!!
-but then again thirty has not been so bad! I received many wonderful gifts from my friends and family and best of all I learned that at midnight on March 7/8 I did NOT turn into a pumpkin.

On Monday night my husband and friends had a small surprise party for me,
something I had never had before, it was pretty awesome!
Some of my gifts included (a new pair of Ice Skates), (Money to spend on YARN),
(board games), (money for Amazon), plus lots of other little things.

One of my gifts was a list from my dear friend lisa...
this list made me smile and made me cry-so I had to share:

as written by Lisa: 30-things I like about you:
  1. your enthusiasm
  2. the smell of your shampoo (pureology for the record)
  3. your curiosity
  4. your love of reading
  5. your taste in yarn
  6. your decor ala' photography
  7. the way you interact with my kids
  8. your hunger for God
  9. your lack of filter
  10. EJ
  11. your recommended reading list
  12. your passion
  13. your creativity
  14. your nervousness of turning 30
  15. the joy you find in EJ
  16. your journey with God
  17. Your drive
