Favorite Birthday Ever

It's official. 30 has probably been my favorite birthday of all time. Jared made me feel like the most special gal in the entire world yesterday. He surprised me by taking off work, which I didn't know until I came downstairs to make a bottle for T and he was still there! He was making chocolate chip pancakes in the kitchen and had some gifts waiting on me. 

My big gift was a zoo membership for our family which I was SO pumped about! It's something we've talked about getting for awhile but hadn't totally decided on yet. Well, Jared made the arrangements, got the passes, and surprised me by taking off work that day! So the three of us headed to the Cincinnati Zoo for our first ever family trip. T was pretty enthralled by it all, especially the fish and the giraffes and I can't wait for return visits all year round!




After a few hours we headed back home to lay low until dinner. While Jared and I discussed where we might head out to after T went to bed, the doorbell rang and MUCH to my surprise, my bestie showed up!!! Jared and Lacey had been scheming behind the scenes to surprise me and they absolutely did. Lacey got off work and immediately drove an hour to come meet me for dinner and pedicures, all scheduled and arranged by Jared. I love those two A LOT!

It was the perfect mix of time with my boys and some time with my girl being pampered a little too. Not to mention all the cards, texts, calls, Facebook messages, etc from friends and family with their well wishes. I couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate turning 30. I have felt the love, for sure! Now let's here it for the weekend!!!
