If you read my last post, you would know that this past weekend I was attending a surprise party for a friend on Friday and a wedding Saturday. Well…the surprise party…was for me!!
I am honestly still in shock. Stunned, even. My actual 30th birthday is not until July 9, so even though I had an idea that something was being planned…never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be in May. As many people noted…if I had thought it was for me, I would not have worn pants!!!!
Luckily my mom knows me too well and knows that I would want to wear a dress. She snuck in my house, and my closet, the night before and took a few dresses. Whew!
The whole night was overwhelming and is still a blur! Thank goodness for photos! Here are a few of my favorite ones.

And of course, R2:
By the time we got home and had everything in the house on Friday night it was well after 1am. We had an early wake up call Saturday because my good friend Kristen was getting married! Her wedding was about 2 hours away in North Jersey with the reception about another 30 minutes north of there. We went right from my house to R2′s, got ready and packed our bags and headed on our way. The wedding was beautiful- gorgeous church and gorgeous bride! The reception was an absolute blast. The cocktail hour was full of amazing food and into the reception we danced and danced and danced! Ok…and drank and drank and drank! It was another super late, but really fun time!
Overall, it was pretty much the best weekend ever. Sunday night, after returned from North Jersey, my parents met R2 at my house and we opened gifts. I am a very lucky girl to have so many wonderful people in my life. And I feel lucky to have all of you to share this with through the amazing blog world!
