Hubby turns 30!!

So who would have ever thought that it would snow on Hubby's 30th birthday, May 3rd...but not on my 30th, February 4th!  We definitely won't be forgetting his 30th birthday anytime soon! 

We started off Hubby's birthday with presents in bed & candles in cinnamon rolls.  This was also our first day back to work after our fabulous it was a little hectic trying to get back into our routine! 

After he pulled out all the stops for my 30th birthday bash, I knew that I had some pretty big shoes to fill.  I actually even talked about it with him, and he mentioned that he didn't need any big party...just a nice cake. But then I got to thinking...and what fun is a big nice fancy cake, when you have no one to share it with!

So, I put a nice formal text message together and sent it out to 40ish of Hubby's closest friends & our families. I had a great response & thus, another 30th Surprise Party was born.

I picked one of our favorite local pizza joints as the party place; knowing that it would be easy to convince Hubby that we should have dinner there. Somewhere casual after having traveled for several days and just wanting a comfortable place to relax that was also kid friendly. My precious MIL helped me out by picking up the cake & the balloon bouquets and I got Hubby there about 20 minutes after the majority of his guests arrived.

I think all in all we had about 50 people in attendance, and even though Hubby isn't a huge party guy...he was definitely thankful that we all came to celebrate his big day!

The best we could do for a family photo with the cake & our live-wire 16 month old!

Oh how I love this man! 
Happy 30th birthday's to the next 30 years of your life being even better than the first!
