Yes they did.....Ryan and Lauren, with help from Friends and Family, through me a surprise party. I just can't believe that someone actually pulled one over on me. I really had no idea. Ryan took me to dinner on Friday night and we went to the Nana on the top floor of the Hilton Anatole. We had a incredible view of the city and the food was delicious!! He did he research and he did a good job choosing a restaurant that we would enjoy. Then on Saturday we were supposed to go to dinner at Javier's in Dallas with our friends Andrea/Grant for dinner to celebrate. Her mom was going to babysit Grace and Madison at Andrea's house. So Ryan and I show up promptly at 6:30 just like Andrea said. Grace had her PJ's on and was ready for the evening. Then we got to their house and I rang the doorbell and it took awhile for them to answer. The the door flew open and there stood all my friends and family! It was great! I don't think I really have ever been that surprised before. They really got me. It was so neat how everything was decorated and all the food was amazing!Everyone worked so hard to make it such a special day and really appreciate everyone for all they did!!
Of course I don't have picks but I promise to post both birthday photo's and Easter this weekend!!

Hope everyone had a great Easter Holiday!

Today is my 30th birthday. Can you believe it!?!? I do feel a little older. I mean I am now officially in the "thirty-something" bracket.I am no longer in my twenty's. I sometimes think I just graduated from college just a couple of years ago, but then Ryan reminds me that it has been 7 years!Crazy how time flys.

Lauren called me first today to wish me Happy Birthday at 6:30am. This was even before Ryan, Grace, and Buffett could tell me.Then of course mom and dad called shortly after. Not doing much tonight for the big day. I have taken the day off from work tomorrow to have a spa day. Ryan is taking me out to dinner on Friday, just the two of us. It is a surprise. I have no idea where we are going. He has kept it a secret for several weeks and everyone knows how hard it is to keep a secret from me. Then on Saturday night we are going to dinner with our friends Andrea and Grant. Andrea's mom is going to watch Grace and her daughter Madison. She is so sweet to watch the girls for us. It should be a fun birthday weekend!I will report back next week on how the weekend goes and hopefully with pictures.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!- O
