so this is what 30 looks like

I think it has been over a month since my last post. Wow does time fly when you start working full time again.  I didn't plan to take a blogging hiatus but sometimes taking a step back gives you great perspective and energizes you again. 

Last Monday, I celebrated the big 3-0.  I received so much love and flowers that I will turn 30 every year if it means that much love :)

The few days before my birthday Scott surprised me with a trip to the Outer Banks to have some beach time.  The week leading up to the trip was gorgeous but then we got there and a cold front was coming in.  We had a great time having a mini-getaway and putting our feet in the sand. I only wish I could have sat on the beach and sipped margaritas.

The first thing we did after getting our room key was walk out onto the beach.

Morning sunrise and view from our balcony.

Scott woke up super early to run to Dunkin Donuts to get me my favorite iced coffee. I spent the morning on the balcony reading, drinking coffee and listening to the waves.

The only pants I brought were my mint skinnies so it meant creating a few new outfits that I ended up loving. {hat: gift via Nordstrom // sweatshirt: Charlotte Russe // Hanes White t-shirt: via husband // mint skinnies: Target // sunnies: c/o Firmoo // Necklace: Lisa Leonard}

Evening stroll on the beach

Since the weather was a bit cold we came home late Saturday night. We spent Sunday morning on the front porch drinking coffee and reading.  Love my new anthro mug I bought as a gift to myself.

We decided to check out the botanical gardens and pack a picnic.

The gardens were gorgeous, so pretty and peaceful in fact we decided to buy a year family membership!

Doesn't everyone buy a membership to the botanical gardens the day before they turn 30?!

Scott and I at my birthday dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. 

Scott surprised me and had some of our wonderful friends join us for my birthday dinner.

We ended the night with a red velvet cake and candles that said I was 20, because my sweet husband said I don't look a day over 20 :) 


I have been thinking a lot about this little blog and I want to make some pretty big changes to it so you might start to see some changes over the next few months.  

I'll be back later this week to share pictures from our Prohibition Party we had this past weekend!
