31 rocks!!!!!!!

I just celebrated my 31st birthday yesterday.....and it was GREAT!!!

I spent the morning at soccer games cheering on my two favorite players.........had a super fun girl's date with my mom while my hubby took the kids to a birthday party for their friend...........was told by TWO people that they guessed it was my 21st birthday..........spent the evening with, wine, cake, and my family by the pool.....followed by a golf cart ride to a really cool Haunted House in my parent's neighborhood!!!!!!! (will leave out the part that BOTH my camera and my mom's camera had dead batteries! SAD!)

Absolutely PERFECT!

I was so nervous last year about entering the "dreaded 30's"......but I have to say....I LOVE THEM!!!

For me I feel like I am SOO much more confident, able to choose the people that I enjoy spending my time with so much better, and realize that it is totally okay to ENJOY sitting around and doing nothing at all with my hubby and kids!

I am super excited that I have 9 years left in my 30's because I honestly ENJOY them!



My FAVORITE part of being born in October is that I have the most amazing fall decorations due to my generous friends and family! Yesterday I received this Galvanized Metal 3-Tier Stand from Pottery Barn, and I can not WAIT to stack tons of cupcakes on it for Collin's Halloween Birthday Party!

Be on the look out this week for a few cute Halloween decorating ideas!!!!!!!

So glad you had an amazing birthday, you deserve it and I agree it is wonderful to be in our 30's. Yes, please post some party ideas, Violet's party with family is this weekend then I am doing another party next week for some of my mommy friends & their kiddos. Pottery Barn has the cutest set of 3 mini fall animal candles, they make great decorations for the table & only $10.

happy happy birthday - 31 is awesome - 32 is BETTER, if you can believe it...or at least it is for me.

So glad you spent it well, Katie!
