Last night my wonderful husband threw me the best party of my life. I told him I wanted a backyard party with BBQ burritos and our friend’s band playing. The rest was up to him. He went crazy and almost all my friends came, it was brilliant.
The set up for the band:
Jettison Bend. Really it was just Brian going solo since his bandmates had commitments, but it was so great! His music is awesome, please clicky click on their link.
Looking back up at our house (reusing the garland from Tutu’s party). I guess since tomorrow is my birthday I can tell Bj that I really want french doors, ha (groan the house will never be done… :)!
I have been excited about my 30th birthday since I was nearly 8 and my mom turned 30. Of course what I remember and what really happened might not be lined up just right but in my eyes then nothing was cooler than the shindig my dad planned. A limo came to our house, but it was a funny limo with a sign that said my mom only looked “29 1/2”. I don’t even know where they went, but they didn’t come home until we were asleep and my mom was dressed all glamorous. I’ve told Bj that story lots of times so he triple checked that I didn’t want to go some where. I didn’t though because I love our yard and our friend’s music and thought this would be so fun.
But guess what? It was even more fun than that! Tuesday had a blast over at Donna’s house with William and his grandma and aunt. She stayed their for three hours until ten, when I brought her back to the party and then she stayed up until 11 saying hello to everyone.
What can I say about my lovely husband? He put up lights, and made food, and even squeezed 30 organic lemons and brewed lavender lemonade for his favorite non-drinker (me :). Sciarrino and Sarah helped too, making signs and picking up three of my favorite desserts (peanut butter pie from Big River in Corvallis) on the sly.
I felt like the luckiest girl last night, nothing could have been better. Tomorrow I’m 30 on the 30th!
