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)

caesar salad

I had to start with the Cesar Salad because it is so delicious with mini quail eggs included


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.


Our wonderful waitress surprised us with cake and our friends and family serenaded us with “Happy Birthday”

chocolate cake

Chocolate Pate with mint sauce and caramelized white chocolate and vanilla ice cream.

Wishing I could have another piece right now!

A huge THANK YOU to our friends and family for making the time to come and celebrate with us. Especially to my sissy who drove over 2 hours to be with us and helped me get ready! She worked her magic on my mane and made my hair look gorgeous! 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!

To those of you who are still reading – Thank you! I hope you have a great day!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!

  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
