Welcome back to reality. Back to work. Back to blogging.
Let's talk about more exciting things...like my birthday party.
And grandmother's fur shaw that needed to be worn.
Since our wedding was before the era of hash tagging events, it was only right that my 30th birthday party had its own hash tag. So #totalthirtycase was born. And it was a great time by all.
Seriously, I keep thinking about the party and want to relive it again and again.
I put a lot of time, effort, planning and about 4,000 lists into the party and it was SO fun to see it come to fruition. Not to mention getting to celebrate with (almost) all of my loves. There is something so heartwarming about having a large majority of your favorite people all in one room.
I insisted on making my own cake (because I'm crazy) but I was obsessed with how it turned out. I followed this recipe and the polka dot cake was born and devoured. I used food coloring to make plain white frosting BRIGHT pink and finished off with gold glitter and sprinkles.
Because nothing says 30 like glitter and sprinkles #amiright If you are crazy enough like myself and want to attempt this cake, feel free to email me and I can give you some pointers.
Besides cake, drinks and champagne (of course, it was New Year's Eve!) we had a make your own taco bar, pulled pork sliders, cinnamon sugar pretzels and bacon wrapped crackers. Sadly, I was having so much fun I had ZERO to eat.
It was so fun to have an evening celebrating and getting dressed up all snazzy.
And that concludes the pictures that I can show on the internet ;)
We wrapped up the evening with a big ol slumber party at our house just like the college days. I was in heaven having so many friends stay at our house, it made my heart so happy.
My only regrets are not taking MORE pictures and not recording the super cute toast that Mister said as I blew out my sparkling candles. And to that I say, let's do it again next year!
Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that helped us celebrate the big night! I had an absolute blast and a really, really fabulously spoiled birthday! Definitely one for the history books.
Happy New Year!
