30th Birthday!

Finally my birthday has came! I finally joined the Dirty Thirty club!  Okay, let's face it- I've always been dirty but I'm now thirty!  I literally couldn't wait to scrap about it - that I did this page the next morning all excited! 

I had so many different plans for the day but of course, making plans is never good- they all seemed to fail. I thought maybe I'd be spending the day shopping in a near by town and drinking with friends. Seems September is a busy month because no one was available when my birthday actually fell on a weekend! ( Except my bestie because she's literally the best person in the world.)  

Also, who knew it could flood in September? Isn't that a spring gig when all the snow melts? But Iowa has been flooding on and off all September- literally kids have been having no school days - so unheard of at this time of the year! So with that happening, major roads have been closed and flooding all over towns that are major in the state of Iowa.  We decided to bail Iowa and head north to Minnesota to spend the day shopping. 

I spent most of the day using my free stuff coupons. Got to love that perk of a birthday! Free coffees, free drinks, free food.. give me! My sister lives on the east coast but never fails to deliver silliness for my birthday!  She sent me a  30's stash and 30's ears to wear as well as a mug. She told me I had to wear it all day- so I did. Live it up, you're only 30 once! Dad sent pictures to her all day to prove I was wearing it- didn't happen if you don't see it right?  At B-Dubs, they provided me also with a "party buffalo" crown. I slid that bad boy right on top of my 30's ears and rocked it.

I ended the night with drinks with my best friend. A great way to start my 30's with deep conversation. She just had a baby and I can't believe she still made the time to sit with me for a while. It was her first time really away from him, so hopefully her night was well spent! Because I'm so thankful for her time with me!  I think I spent my day just out right- with people who mean the world to me and made me feel loved all day.
