I admit, I was a bit sad to be celebrating such a milestone birthday away from the majority of my friends and family. I think Paul knew that, without me saying so, because he made me feel extra loved on my birthday!
Saturday morning I opened my gifts from Madi & my mom. Madi gave me such a thoughtful gift - pearl earrings. I dropped my only pair down the drain about 6 months ago and she remembered that. She also drew me a picture and her grandmother took pictures of her "modeling" and framed them for me. My mom gave me a gift card to one of my favorite clothing stores and wrote me a note that almost made me cry. Almost!
Madi, Paul, and I went to IHOP for breakfast. I normally don't eat there but when there is no Lizard's Thicket in the same state as me, the alternative is IHOP. It was very nice having breakfast with my loves. Unfortunately, I felt absolutely awful the majority of the day so after breakfast I lied around at home until we went bowling. Paul had that planned and our friends Jeff & Pam met us there. We played a good, competitive 3 rounds. Madi beat me in round 2 and Paul killed us all in every round!
Cheers to being 30!
