My Birthday Week

For all the crazy busy activities crammed into this week, I have to say it's been pretty amazing.  I've felt so blessed by my friends, my family, and most importantly, my sweet husband.  And really, turning 30 has not been nearly as traumatic as I thought it would be.

My birthday week began on Thanksgiving, when we celebrated with family.  My father-in-law's birthday was on Thanksgiving day this year (and my SIL's was just the week before), so we all shared one delicious cake and birthday song.  Notice the 3 sets of candles.  My mom is just so creative (she made the cake).

 Our celebrating continued  Tuesday, when Dave took me out for a fantastic dinner at Demitris, this great Tapas Bar in downtown Edmonds.  We were joined by my closest friends, and ate and laughed the evening away.  I took a few pictures before we left the house...

(Here's a mandatory 6 months preggo shot)

Of course, as we were leaving for the restaurant, Dave and I had our obligatory "should we bring the nice camera or rely on the iPhone camera" conversation.  He won this time with his "why would you take pictures at your own party" defense, and wouldn't you know, all of the iPhone pictures were dark and blurry.  So, those two shots are what we've got.  Haha... But we had a really nice time, and it was fun having an evening out with our friends.

My actual birthday (Nov 30) was spent quietly with just our immediate family.  I was showered with amazing gifts, and then we had dinner at my favorite sushi place.  Don't worry - I only ate cooked dishes!  

My girls helped me open gifts...

 This one was my definite favorite - and quite timely...

...because last night, Dave took me to my very first NFL game!  It was SOOO much fun, and probably the best game of the entire season.  My beloved Seahawks totally smashed the Eagles and it was incredible to see it all live.  I have brag on "my man" - Marshawn Lynch did his job well - 2 touchdowns!  The whole team played incredibly well, and I can't wait to see them play again soon.

And I'll brag on my other man - my REAL man.  Dave, you outdid yourself this year sweetheart!  I had a fantastic birthday, and I owe it all to you for being best hubby on the planet.  :)
