Today is my 30th birthday...crazy!!! I'm one of those people that loves birthdays...always have, probably always will. Even when I get old. 30 feels a little bit older this year, I must admit. I don't know if it's a mental thing or just a numbers thing. My mom was here part of the day and helped me out by watching my kids so I could go get my hair done. I've never had my hair cut and colored on my birthday but I might have to make it a yearly tradition...it was kind of fun being pampered on my birthday instead of just some random day. I had my normal blonde highlights put in and then added in some darker brown lo-lights since fall is coming. I like to change it up a little once in a while. My hair girl also curled my hair...how I wish I could make it look as cute as she can! When I came home I found all the kids' laundry folded and beds made. My mom rocks. My husband actually has to work late tonight so we aren't going out to celebrate till tomorrow night. I love it when you get to stretch the celebrating a good couple of days. We actually celebrated my birthday last weekend too with our visiting family as I share a birthday with my cute 2 year old niece (Happy Birthday Ella!!). My sis-in-law and bro-in-law picked up a yummy ice cream cake for us which was so nice. It's the first time in a long time I haven't had to make my own cake!
So I mentioned a few posts ago that I finally tracked down the Rise and Fall cardigan a few weeks back...it arrived a couple of days ago so I figured I'd consider this little gem my birthday present to myself this year. I never know what my husband is gonna get me for my birthday so as a back-up plan I always get myself something too...aren't I nice? =) Can I just say how much I LOVE it! I am so glad I finally found it!

You know that feeling when you get dressed and just love what you're wearing? It certainly doesn't happen everyday for me, but today was one of those good days. I love this outfit! I stole Jessica's idea of belting it...I love the way it looked on her and thought I'd go for it. I can't wait till it gets cooler and I can pull out some boots!
Tonight I plan to stop by Rubios for dinner and Jamba for a treat...I'm sure my kids won't mind! I refuse to cook my own dinner on my birthday. After they head to bed I'll be indulging in some Project Runway...perfect way to end my day.
Hope you all had a great day!!
