Today is my 30th birthday. I know…sooooo old! I’m really not bothered by turning 30 at all. Truthfully, I’ve been acting like I was 30 since I was 13, so it was about time I caught up with myself. What did I do on this special day? Well, I went to the orthodontist and speech therapy. Isn’t that what all
13 30 year olds do on their birthday? Between appointments, I did a little shopping and visited my beloved Starbucks…then tonight, my parents took us and Sean out to dinner to celebrate. It was delicious! This past Sunday, my mom and dad hosted a party for me at their house. I know they really, really wanted it to be special. They worked so hard putting it together. No detail went unnoticed…from the invitations to the decorations, the party favors and the twinkle lights hanging in the trees…I will remember it forever. Thank you Mom and Dad. Love you.

My parents surprised me and cleared out their very large garage and decorated it for the occasion. (Sounds kind of random but they covered all of the walls, set up tables, a buffet and drink station…it was super cute and very creative.
Grandmother and Ken (they must be really old to have a grandchild who’s 30!)
My parents surprised me and included a few extra special “family” members…Kara and Tim were some (I’ve known and loved them since we were 12).
Casey and Paisley
The Lowes (my grandparents, aunt and little bro)
Some of the other surprise guests…Whitney, Sheaffer and Erika
My sweet parents who poured themselves into this party.
Brandon and Sean
Sheaffer and Erika (so sweet of them to drive out and surprise me)
Whitney and Kara (Kara, by the way, got along famously with the McKinney girls…in a matter of minutes she had joined in making fun of Sheaffer being so old and Whitney driving a minivan)
Tim and Rusty (so sweet to come considering the Rangers were playing a World Series game!)
Casey is sooooooo great with my kids!
Love you all!
I’m so blessed.

Whitney must have been saying something REALLY surprising for my eyes to be that bugged out, huh? ha ha!! Loved attending your birthday party! I've said it before and I'll say it again…"You Lowe's can PARTY!" Happy Birthday Friend!!
Sheaffer, Chris, Scout, and baby Carter says
Erika – I was just about to comment about that picture too. Your eyes are bugged out, and I can't find the right words to describe the look on my face….but it is NOT pretty! 🙂 I wonder what the heck she was saying! Oh, and Shay,you should probably tell your parents that I want to live in their backyard. Or their garage.

I'm so glad it turned out so well! I looked like a blast, and very special for a very special lady 🙂
