Birthday Surprises

A week ago I was no where ready to say I am 30... THIRTY. Sounds like a huge milestone. But after actually turning 30 I would have to say it is liberating. Finally. It is certainly is a new decade and a new milestone. So lucky to have such a great job, great place to live, great friends and great family. And today was no different in helping to remind me of that.

I started my morning (it was my day off) with some steaming hot coffee & the Today Show. I went to the gym and had a workout session with my personal trainer Abigail, which I really enjoy, even when I can't lift my arms anymore. After that I had a nice lunch from The Palace in Aggieville, then headed to the salon to have my hair cut & highlighted. It was there that I received my first birthday surprise. Flowers! My stylist is the daughter of my office manager, Mary, who made sure these flowers, lilies are my favorite, were there for me. Thank you so much Mary! I love them and they smell amazing!
I was suppose to go to dinner with my Aunt Peggy. She was going to meet me at my house after work. But when I opened my door I saw 3 of my best friends waiting with cameras in hand to surprise me and take me out to dinner. I will post those pictures later. It was a huge surprise since they drove 2.5 hours away. We went to my favorite place in Manhattan, Coco Bolos.

Here is Audra & Laura
And Me (with my new hair) & Megan After dinner we went back to my place for mini ice cream cakes. Thank you everyone for the awesome birthday wishes! I am such a lucky girl to have so much love and support in my life. 30 is going to be GREAT!
