This weekend was one filled with friends, surprises and lots of love. I will be turning 30 this Wednesday, and two of my best friends went ahead and planned an awesome surprise birthday party for me this Saturday. They impressed me with their planning and attention to detail. There was a signature cocktail for the celebration and even a hash tag to follow the fun on Instagram and Twitter (#carlasbirthdaysurprise). They also surprised me with a crown, glowing wand and martini chalice to enjoy all night long, plus everyone had hats and funny glasses and mustaches to get silly with. Such a fun night! I feel so loved and blessed. The boyfriend was so good when luring me into the party and also surprised me with lots of my favorite cupcakes. If this is any sign of how my new decade of life will unfold, I’m excited and happy to know that no matter what I’ll have the love and support of my boyfriend and friends illuminating my days. Thanks Elisa and Corey! You guys are the bestest friends a girl could ask for! I will always remember Saturday night.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll be heading out on a surprise birthday road trip planned by the boyfriend. I’m so excited to get out of town and celebrate in a different place and scratch it off my travel the world bucket list. If you want to find out where I’m going and check out pics of the trip feel free to follow #bdaytrip30 on Twitter and Instagram. And, because its my birthday week, I’ll break my not-putting-the-boyfriend on the grid rule to say… Craig, thank you for always making me smile and making me feel like the luckiest girl ever. I love you!
