Turning 30...

It isn't so bad, really. I had a nice day. I got my favorite salad from California Pizza Kitchen for lunch and I got two great presents in the mail.
The first, from my folks. I've been saying for a while that I want a picture of the mountains back home to put up in my house. I miss the Olympics and I loved looking at them while I was visiting. Some of my sisters, my Mom and I went to a craft store when I was home and we saw this sign. I loved it immediately and went to show my Mom, who was trying to show it to me at the same time. She sent it to me for my birthday. I was so surprised, which doesn't happen often. I am so glad to have it in my house. I LOVE IT! Thanks Mom and Dad!

The next is a beautiful necklace and earring set from my in laws. Erie has a booming beach glass industry. Well, I don't really know if it's booming or not, but I love it. I love how they're almost the same color as my birthstone. Thanks very much to Mom and Dad (in law).We went to our friends for dinner that night. Layla made us a fabulous dinner. The girls played, we had birthday cake (my favorite berry poke cake) and I got a gift certificate for a pedicure. Thank you Layla, for making my birthday special. The only thing missing was Eric. All in all, it was a pretty good day.
Also wanted to share this layout I did tonight. I was going to do a whole other post, but why? i need to get to bed and that would just take longer.

It's a little messy. Apparently the ink on the date stamps on the left side hadn't dried all the way when I started doing other stuff to it and my forearm smudged it around. Ah well, perfection is always just out of reach. Enjoy.

Okay, so now I want to know what the journaling says on your layout.

Oh, and the necklace and earrings are very cute.
