my 30th birthday bash

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

i'm not sure how the heck i'm going to recap one of the best weekends i've ever had, as i'm pretty positive i'm not going to be able to do any justice to the awesome, but i'm sure going to try.

first i need to thank MOB for organizing my 30th birthday party at
hoopples. i know she put a lot of time and energy into it, along with coordinating with my amazing mother and sissy, and it means the world to me - thanks so much MOB, mom and sissy - love you guys.

second in need to thank all my friends who traveled all the way to cleveland from out of town to help me celebrate, all my cleveland friends who came out to party and everyone who wished me well via social media etc - you all sure know how to make a girl feel special.

friday night (my 30th birthday) was
literally overwhelming in the best way possible... so many amazing people came out and i just wished i had more time to spend with everyone.

the party brought some surprises, things like "Pin The Cell on ALEXA".... think pin the tail on the donkey but with a huge picture of me holding my ever present cellphone - hysterical (see below).

another surprise was this AMAZING slide show full of pictures from my childhood through today. if you've ever been to hooples you know that on their patio they project games on the bridge column. imagine your ugly freshman year college pictures broadcast on a huge 10 x 10 foot screen for all to see - again, hysterical and touching all at once.

i let my picture taking slip as i was too busy being party girl but thankfully teen took some great shots from the beginning of the night for me to share with you all.

so heeeeeeeeeeeeere we go:

diva, me and teen on my deck before heading to the party

martha, court, me, ANG*, muffin, erin and the klutz

poo poo, foxxy and beaver

mike, laura, patti and maura

party planner extraordinaire MOB and diva

teen and allison - teen is allison's blog's #1 fan, FYI.

cassi, jason, brooke and sissy

some embarrassing childhood pics, me, sissy and my mom

i seriously can't say thank you enough to everyone who came out to make my birthday so special for me. i've said it once and i'll say it again - i dare ANYONE to try to find a better group of friends and family.

hope everyone had a great long holiday weekend!
