It's All Downhill From Here Folks....

Uuuuh, yeah, right. It's all awesomeness from here folks. And by here, I mean 30. Yeah, who would have thought, I turned 30:) And I got to be honest, I've never felt so good. I keep joking with my spring chick of a husband that it's all downhill from 30, but frankly, I couldn't disagree more with my joking self. Life truly does just keep getting better.

To begin, my hunk of a husband, just keeps getting hunkier (and by hunkier, I definitely do not mean chunkier, he is turning into a lean muscle mass machine!)

I couldn't have asked for 2 more different, sweet, fun, and beautiful children.

Our temporal blessings make life wonderfully comfortable an enjoyable. Everything from a home to live in to practically 365 days of sunshine in this wonderful state. It's not possible to get depressed with that kind of weather.

I feel great physically. No hip replacements, yet. Although....I sure complain about my back a lot.

I really feel amazed and humbled by my view from 30. Life is good and always getting better!

For the big 3-0, my hubby granted me my wish and sent me to wonderful Minnesota to hang with my sisters and a handful of my nieces and nephews. It was a great break and good opportunity for dad to get some Riggs time and me to get some Mere time.

Here we are braving the elements, and by elements I mean inside the MN airport.

This trip made having one kid seem so easy. Why was that so not the case when we actually had one kid?? Hmmm.

Our pre-church photoshoot.

Look at all of that chubby goodness. Mere loved all the attention she got from her cousins.

Mere the Older with Mere the Younger.

Again, taking the opportunity to sport our sweaters and beanies.

It truly was an excellent trip, now I just need to make it happen every year!!

On my actual birthday I tried to get a picture with my son. It was impossible. This was the best I got.

That night Trevor took me to dinner and low and behold an entire group of my friends were there. He really pulled a fast one on me. It was a fantastic collection of my favorite people. It was also a fantastic collection of my favorite food, TX Roadhouse. I think I ate a roll for each year of my life.

Not pictured below, because I think he's hiding on purpose, is Garrick. Laura M. is also only half in photo. Our waitress did the best she could. These guys really made my night. They also make up most of my life out here in Florida, and for that I'm very grateful!

Oh yeah, and this is just to show that we still got "it."

Happy Birthday, Lesley! 30 looks great on you! The only problem I have with you being 30 is... that means that I am then MORE than 30. Hmmm, not sure how I feel about that, but hey, happy Birthday anyway!! :) Your trip to MN looks like a dream - way to go to Trevor for making it happen!
