turning 30

Today is my birthday!  And as my husband would say, I'm spoiled!

I've had so many friends and family wish me a happy day - thank you!  It has really been a great day, and it's only 1/2 over!

I was supposed to sleep in, but as luck would have it, I woke up wide awake at 6:30 am.  (probably because I fell asleep at about 9:30 on the couch while watching Pineapple Express last night!).  At any rate, I enjoyed the quiet morning very much.

When Dan got up, I opened some presents!  Can you guess what I got?

If you guessed the beautiful necklace, you would be right!  My friend Becky sent that from Colorado!

But if you guessed the earrings, you'd also be right!  Dan "surprised" me with diamond earrings!  Isn't he the best?!

After breakfast, we showered and went to the temple.  We hadn't been in a while, plus it was our first time at the Houston temple.   It is beautiful!

On the way home, stopped for milkshakes at Chick-Fil-A.  Delicious!

Now we are just relaxing.  And, I need to decide where to go for my birthday dinner....I guess turning 30 isn't as bad as I thought it would be!
