Well it's Official...

I am 30...and if yesterday was any indiciation of how my 30s are going to be...well let's just say I had a blast and it may very well go down as the best birthday EVAH!!!

The evening started out with some ribs for dinner that the boyfriend had smoked for 6 hours on Friday...they were falling off the bone and yummy yummy! As you can tell...the boyfriend literally devours them...this picture totally cracks me up...and yes a few drinks had been consumed by this point (lol).

Then I set off for my friend E's house...for some lovely wine...and a pretty little happy birthday tiara...I have no pictures of me wearing it but I'm sure they will surface at some point!

There were balloons:

and even a cake...YUM
Oh and did I forget to mention the silly string in the face??? I was pulling it out of my hair for hours!

We primed up pretty good and then were off to Bon Jovi...I got some great pictures there but you'll have to stay tuned...
Oh and I did get a new camera for my birthday...I need to play with the settings and figure them all out because a few of my pics came out very blurry yesterday...but in true Mel form I never read the manual....just figured I'd be able to figure it all out on my own...it's a pretty little pink camera...love it! Oh and I got new bedsheets too...love those too!

Not quite Wordless Wednesday

Ain't it funny that as I posted my 9 year old boy's birthday pictures to Facebook this afternoon that I realized this is the first time I've actually had photos of his birthday party...The disposable camera that houses his 7 year party is sitting on top of my cupboard still waiting to be developed...I'm ONLY 2 years late...

Then last year...the stupid batteries died in the camera even though I know I had charged them the very night before...sometimes I hate technology!!!

So this year...although they aren't the best pics (I've hinted to the boyfriend it's definitely time for a new camera...hello my birthday is SATURDAY...start shoppin'! lol) I'm so glad to be able to share a few.

(ignore the stupid date stamp that shouldn't have appeared...again with stupid and old technology!)

Boy it sure has been a whirlwind of a few weeks! 2 camping trips and a trip to my friend/co-worker's cabin made it quite busy. Don't get me wrong we all had a blast, swimming and fishing and enjoying the nice weather...everything has been perfect...well except those darn pesky mosquitos...

So this week I'm relaxing (somewhat)...the boy has ditched me for all the fun activities daycare has in store and I have decided since it's a rainy week...to take a few days and try and organize our basement which is full of a whole lot of junk!

I thought I'd be bored with the boy out of the house and the boyfriend working crazy hours...but in all honesty I'm loving this 'me' time. When I'm not packing for camping trips and/or cleaning house I've been watching movies and lots of them...girlie movies lol. Something I rarely treat myself to.

Only 5 more days till I turn 30 and me and my girls go to see Bon Jovi...woot woot! I'm sooooooooooooooooo flippin' excited!
