I hope you had a great weekend! Are you like me and your weekends seem to fly bye?! We had a great weekend it was full of love, family, friends, good food and great memories where made! It was busy but thats life these days! If you follow me on IG you would have saw a picture from our (my husband and mine) 30th Birthday Party on Saturday night and since some of you asked for more pictures and since I promised a recap here you go!

 

Let me start off by saying for so long I was dreading turning 30! Something about it made me think I would be so old yet so far I haven’t felt any different than I did when I was 29. I think a lot of it is not so much about the number as it is about your mind set. I feel young and there for I believe I am young even if my age number says different! But since I love to celebrate birthdays and I enjoy being with my family and friends…. and I love a good party I thought turning 30 deserves a little party! But with my birthday being in February and my husbands in March (yes I am older than him by a whole month and 19 days) it made most sense to do a combined party. So I picked out a cute yet fun and eligent invitation that I thought represented us well and had them made and sent to our closest friends and family! We decided to have the dinner at one of our favourite local restaurants the Cambridge Mill  which is not only a gorgeous restaurant but serves delicious food. We thought how fun would it be to have our closest friends all together sans babies and kiddies and just sipping wine, eating yummy food and enjoying each others company? And we were right it was an absolutely awesome night! I took some pictures to give you a taste of our night! (Disclaimer: Sorry for the quality of pictures – the lighting was terrible and I am not a great photographer but working on that. If any of your are photographers or know of a great one please pass the info along I would love to be in touch)

For my entree I choose the Grilled Salmon on Roasted Fennel Risotto with Citrus Vinaigrette and it was delicious.

My hubby naturally chose Top Sirloin with Blue Cheese Compound Butter,  potato gratin with leaks and brie and brussels sprouts and he ate it all so that speaks for itself.

We feel so blessed to truly have the best friends and there is no one else we would have wanted to celebrate this milestone with then you guys! We love each one of you!

  • After a crazy busy weekend full of birthday parties and lots of fun we ended it in the hospital last night with our baby and it broke my heart. All you mamas know what I mean when I say the mama guilt was strong- you try so hard to keep them healthy and yet there’s only so much you can do especially when they are little! It gave me a small dose of reality for so many mamas who’s little ones are in a way tougher situation than we are.  Tonight I’m thankful to be home and for modern medicine and great doctors and I am praying that much harder for mamas like @tanismitchell who are so brave and truly a super mom to her little warrior! We keep praying for a miracle for sweet Lu!
  • Infertility is something I never worried about, never even thought about until it was my journey. I didn’t chose to suffer from infertility but I would chose it over and over again because it led me to each one of them - my three biggest miracles and today we celebrate #worldadoptionday
  • 5 years ago I held you for the first time and I knew my world would never be the same. From day one you have always been so chill and easy going very different from your big sis! You have such a sweet gentle spirit and a sensitive soul! I have been so proud of you as I have watch you grow in your independence especially over this last year. There is no doubt your sisters are you best friend and you and Gray have a very special bond but your still a mamas boy and I secretly hope you always will be. Loving you is easy and you are already charming the ladies with your handsome good looks! Happy 5th birthday my boy I love you to the moon and back! #happybirthday #mamasboy #covethomas
  • A sister is a built in best friend- well atleast that’s true in my life! Next to be a mommy being an auntie is the best thing ever and welcoming this most precious beautiful baby girl into the world has me feeling all the feels! Emersyn Kate you were worth the wait (although pretty sure your mama would have enjoyed you to come out on or before your due date) you have a rockstar for a mama and a great daddy too and your big sister is going to be your best friend for life I can already tell! Your cousins can’t wait to meet you (and get their hands all over you - I apologize in advance) we are so happy to have you as part of our crazy, wild, loud yet full of love family baby girl! And I am so honored that you have part of my name in yours! I love you sweet girl! *and yes my sister looks this good after giving birth #notfair *
