Happy Birthday to ME!

I celebrated my 30th birthday yesterday the 23rd! I can happily say that I actually had a really great birthday. I started the weekend Friday when Troy took the day off and we all went downtown to breakfast. I love breakfast at Lowell's, in Pike's Place Market. We've had a hard time getting there in time for breakfast so it was a great treat to be able to go Friday morning. I then got my hair cut and colored. In honor of my brown and pink party, I now have Atomic Pink hair! Don't worry, it's just the underneath part. It was quite a shock to everyone, but I wanted to do something fun and a little crazy! We then wandered around a few stores downtown and ended the night with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.
I normally don't like to celebrate my own birthday but this year I decided to throw myself a birthday party. Troy was amazing with all the help he gave me in getting the house ready. He spent all day working to clean the house and yard. The party all started from some super cute brown and pink paisley plates that Jac and I found online and from there it evolved into an all chocolate party. We had chocolate fountain, chocolate mousse, individual chocolate chip cheesecake, chocolate raspberry torte, chocolate-white-butterscotch chip oatmeal cookies, mint brownies, and chocolate cake with chocolate truffle filling. Tons of my friends came and we had a great time hanging out and visiting.
Today, my parents flew the girls and I to Arizona for a couple of weeks. We plan on enjoying tons of time in the sun! There is no better time to be in Arizona than February and October. The last time we were here was in October for my good friend Reagan's wedding so I guess we just keep picking the good times to visit!
Thanks to all the calls and Happy Birthday's from everyone. I have cherished each and everyone!
P.S. I forgot my camera cords so I'll post pics when I get back to Washington!

You should have Troy mail you the cords so you can post pictures of all your cute finds for the boutique.
I'm glad you had a HAPPY birthday! Have fun in the sun!
