Celebrating (or mourning) the BIG 3-0! :)

On Saturday, I turned 30!!!!! I still can't believe I'm 30! I just don't know how this happened! ;) Oh well, you have to embrace it!

We were supposed to spend a long, relaxing weekend at the beach but after the big blizzard (haha) and a bad stomach bug, Rob and I decided to stay closer to home and have some fun! Since we had already planned to take the days off to go to the beach, we kept the days and spent some time out and about! We were going stir crazy after being snowed in so we were just excited to be out of the house!

Friday we headed to Birmingham for a little shopping at the outlets in Leeds, The Shops of Grand River. This was our first time there and they are pretty nice. I hope it grows a little more so they will have even more outlets. After shopping, we headed to the Summit for lunch at Chuy's.
After lunch and a little more walking, we headed to Flip Burger Boutique for one of their famous milkshakes!

Rob tried the Krispy Kreme and I had the Nutella with burnt marshmellows. They were good, overpriced, but good.
On Saturday (my actual birthday), Rob got us a room at the Westin. We checked in and then went to the movies to see The Dilemma. Saturday night we had dinner at Connor's. If you've never had Connor's you are missing out!!!!!!!
Here we are headed out to dinner
We ordered dessert to go....yummy!
Before my birthday, Rob totally surprised me with the Nook Color. I've been wanting one for a while but I was NOT expecting it, at all!! By the way, it's even better than I thought it would be!!!
On Saturday, he gave me a Brighton charm bracelet that he started for me. This is a picture I did on Brighton's website of what my bracelet looks like. They have some really neat charms and spacers and I'm excited to start one as I start this new chapter of my thirties!!!!

I'm 30! I still can't quite wrap my mind around it! I am excited to see what my 30's have in store for me though!!!!
