Last weekend, my sister and best friend through me a surprise birthday party.  Yep, I'm turning the big 3-0!  One birthday I have not been excited about, but my sister knew, and made it a little more bearable!  One week early, I suspected the party I was invited to could be for me, but wasn't sure at all.

They even got me my own tiara!  Of course it was complete with number 30.

The theme was pink, my favorite color, and black and white!  The cake, strawberry, my favorite too!

I was even showered with presents.  My friends sure do know how to make ya feel special, especially when you really need it!!

All of our kiddos had a blast too!!  They are all so close in age and have a great time playing together!  And of course Jillian stole my tiara!

Everyone wanted to blow out candles so I let them help!  And thankfully there were not 30 candles, that would have taken awhile!!

My girls!!  The best friends you could ask for!!  I love them all!!  I was so excited to them all there, for me!

We stayed late, playing Wii Just Dance and Country Dance, talking with good friends and letting the kids run all their energy out.  And it worked, mine both slept in the next day!!

I am so thankful to have soo many great friends who care so much!  This surprise party was just what I needed.  Now I'll ring in this Saturday's big day a little easier!  Thank you Jo-Jo for the party and Cassie for helping my little sis out!!  And thanks to all my family and friends who came.  I guess 30 might not be too bad!!
