How in the world am I 30 years old? I was starting to get a little depressed but decided there was no need for that. I have a wonderful life! I have a great husband, two of the cutest little boys ever, amazing family and friends and a new house. What more could I ask for?
Friday (August 23), when I got off work Tiffany was waiting at my house. I had no idea she was going to be there and she was surprising me and taking me out to a girls dinner. She had already worked everything out with Christian so he could be off work in time to get the boys. My good friend, Hilary, and her daughter, Presley, also came along. We had a nice relaxing dinner and then headed to Hilary's for some girl time.
My yummy drink at Logans.
This is my husband's sweet post from facebook at 12:01am on my birthday. He can be super sweet when he wants to be. :) My other high school girlfriend Kelly came and had porch night with us at Hilary's. We all stayed up way too late.
Saturday morning Tiffany and I headed back to my house. Christian said he would take me to do whatever I wanted to do that day...even shopping. I opted for a nap. Staying up until 2am is hard on a 30 year old. Once I got up from my nap it was time to get the boys ready for their grandparent and us for dinner.
Lincoln stayed with my parents. Can you tell he has no interested in getting a birthday picture with his Mommy?
This is what happens when you won't smile for a picture :)
Harrison stayed with Christian's parents. He was a little happier about the picture with Mommy.
Once we dropped the kids off it was time to head to downtown Chattanooga for dinner at Mellow Mushroom and Brew Fest. As I have said before, I am not much of a drinker and especially not beer. I had originally wanted to go to Nashville for the Titans vs. Falcons game. We got to looking at hotels and they were $250 a night. That is crazy and I refuse to pay that much just to sleep for a few hours. Several of our friends were going to Brew Fest so I figured we would just go there.

We got photobombed!
Love this guy!

Jean, Kelly, Hilary and I all went to school together. I have know Kelly and Hilary since 3rd grade.
We left Brew Fest and headed for Hair of the Dog and it started pouring rain. Christian and I got soaked!!!!!!!!!!! It was still a blast. Kelly and Jean introduced me to cheese balls. They are like mozerella bites but with cheddar cheese. They are AMAZING! I have been craving them every since but haven't had a chance to go and get any. Our kids are almost always with us when we go anywhere and it's not like I would take them into a bar even if they could go in.

I had an amazing birthday! Here's to 30 more!

One Saturday Christian had to take a machine to Knoxville for work so it was me and the boys all day. I had made a huge to do list that morning and was trying to get as much accomplished as I could with two toddlers running around. Once the boys got up from their nap I wanted to do something fun with them so we decided to make fruit snacks. I had a kit in the cabinet for a while but never found the time to drag it out. I did all the work and the boys got to reap the benefits :)

After getting back from vacation the day before we decided we still needed a little more pool time so we headed to Memaw and Poppy's house. They had just got their new steps put in so we got Memaw to get in the water too!!
These two think they need to eat a popsicle every time they go swimming.

Lincoln hated the sand at first and would freak out when it got on him so he spent a lot of time in the kiddie pool.

The boys were so tired.
Daddy misjudged the water and little and him and Lincoln got hit pretty hard. Lincoln was not happy.
