People are crafty! I knew something was up for my 30th, but I had no idea the extent of it! NO IDEA! Even at the end of my party I was still putting things together (I said to B's grandma and mom at the end, "Wait, did you guys plan to come up for THIS?!"). I'm a little slow!
The theme was "Marie Antoinette" as done by Sofia Coppola. She had an over-the-top life and I had an over-the-top party. There's a scene in the movie where Marie Antoinette is celebrating her birthday and there are beautiful baked goods everywhere...my Devil (Megan to those who are confused) baked TONS of treats and I felt as royal as M.A. The decorations were beautiful too - if you need a party planned, she is your girl!
When we arrived at the park, I was kind of surprised, but thought we were maybe just having a picnic with family (instead of a small brunch at mom and dads...as they LED me to believe). BUT THEN...I saw my friend Karen waving to me, and then a tall guy with a camera...CAM! And standing next to him...MICHELIA! Then HEIDI pulled up next to us! And the parade of people just kept coming. Moms from the Mom's group came, my Aunt and Uncle, my cousin Leah. Brad from college, Missi, B's cousin...the list goes on! It was wonderful. I guess turning 30 isn't so bad when you've got so many people taking care of you and wishing you well :)
