{the party}

It was so much fun and I truly felt blessed.  Thank you so much for everyone who came, helped with, made food for, let us borrow things for, and had fun at our party!  I wasn't really in a picture-taking mood that night, but I managed to get a few shots of the "before." 

My sister Kiley made some absolutely fantastic homemade cupcakes!  I saw cupcakes made in these cute little "mint and nut" cups on a blog and knew Kiley would take the idea and run with it {we had three kinds...vanilla, tiramisu, and mocha-chocolate-chip}.  For those of you who might be interested, I found the little cups at Michael's and JoAnn's. 

Thanks again to everyone who brought food {Elyse-shrimp quesadillas, Ki-cupcakes and brushetta, Ranya-spring rolls and stuffed jalepenos, mom-cheese platter and hummus dip}. It was all so yummy. I didn't lift a finger to make anything (well, just the drinks, but that was easy)!

My friends put together a little surprise gift which was so thoughtful and such a great idea...an iBook with notes and pictures from everyone, including a whopping giftcard for a spa!!!!!  Wow, that sounds fabulous.  THANK YOU!!!  And thanks Amanda for arranging everything! 

And a special thanks to my amazing husband.  Thanks for organizing and planning everything.  Thanks for making sure I had a great birthday...I sure did!  I think it was a week-long celebration, but maybe you can do that every 30 years??  ;)
