my 30th birthday part 2

My actual 30th birthday fell on Father's Day weekend, so of course Kev and I had my parents up for the weekend to do some more celebrating. Just riding the birthday train out as long as I possibly can....please don't judge me ;-)

Britty, my momma and I started off the day with some shopping and hit up our local faves. 
Car selfie anyone? 

We hit up Dewey's for some pizza and beer in Newport. Dewey's has quickly became one of my parents' favorite local restaurants. They crave it and Kev and I are not complaining. We love us some pizza!
We then took my parents to their first 3D-IMAX experience at Newport on the Levee. 

Saturday morning we sipped coffee on the back porch and took it easy most of the afternoon. 
That evening we headed up to my dad's version of Disneyland....the Casino. I swear the man barely spends any money and just plays the slot machines and ALWAYS wins. It's ridiculous! No wonder he enjoys it so much. 

Us gals posted up at Margaritaville, while the boys enjoyed the slots, black jack and roulette. 


Sunday morning was Father's day and my actual birthday. We headed to church followed by delicious barbecue for lunch.  


Happy Father's Day Daddo!!
My family and Kev clearly spoiled me rotten this year for my birthday. You will hear no complaints from me. Love my new Tory, Michael, Lulu, Frye and monogrammed goodies. Should I just turn 30 every year, haha!

The next morning we headed to Florida with Dana and Chris.............and the birthday train continues :-)

My 30th Birthday

Let's be honest.....you only turn 30 once! So what better way to celebrate then dragging it out for a three week celebration? Standard right?!?! Kev and I planned a weekend to celebrate with friends, a weekend to celebrate with family and then there was a week in Florida with my bestie. Now that's how I like to celebrate!! 

We invited our closest Lexington friends up for a fun Saturday night back in June to help me bring in the dirty 30. 
We started off the day with pedis and manis with these two cuties. 



       
Followed by a little wine and getting ready time with my bff Megan. We hadn't got ready together in the same bathroom since we were roommies back in 2009. Was so much fun having quality girl time with her. 

Everyone met at our house before we headed downtown Cincy to one of my favorite restaurants....Nada! It's so yummy!!! 


 Baby brother met us straight from work in his cute business attire. We love having him in Cincy with us...LOVE IT!!!

And there were lots of photos taken....lots :-)


After dinner, we headed to Igby's. Kev treated us all to some delicious cocktails. We really enjoyed the side patio area there and the weather was perfect!! 





After dinner and drinks we headed back to our house for games. Taboo anyone?!?! We laughed so much that my abs were sore the next morning. 
Sunday morning my partner and crime and our hubbies hit up IKEA and Kenwood mall for some serious retail therapy. 


30 is off a to a great start!!!! So blessed and lucky to have all these people in my life. They sure know how to make a girl feel special.

it's been another hot minute....

Hey Y'all!!!  
So I totally took a fall off of the blogging band wagon.....tear. Life just got busy this summer and thee bloggy had to take a back seat. Kev and I have been diving face first into our new surroundings in NKY/Cincinnati and are really starting to fall in love with this place. Those of you who really know me, know that a piece of my heart will always be in Lexington, but we are loving all the fun that Cincy has to offer. 

Speaking of fun, let's talk about how fun it was to meet so many amazing bloggy ladies last month at the Cincy blogger meetup. Holy Amazingness! What could be better than making new friends over mexican food and margaritas?!?! Meeting so many amazing gals could not have came at a better time for me. 

I finally got to meet so many pretties!!! 
Can I just tell y'all how sweet this gal is? Dream come to true to sit beside of her at dinner. So much fun! 

Then there was also the gorgeous Sarah...total bombshell!
I cant forget about my girl Brittany  who is the cutest preggo momma to be that I have ever seen. 
Meeting  Erin was a long time coming, too. She's one of the first bloggy's I started following. She's a cutiepatootie! 
                               
I also met some other pretty fabulous ladies that I can't wait to get to know better. Meeting such a fun group of gals was such a breath of fresh air for me. Kev and I haven't met too many new friends outside of church and work, so this was right up my alley. I seriously fell in love with all of them and already looking forward to seeing all their gorgeous faces again!!! 

Back row : Whitney  /Sarah // Brittany // Heather // Liz // Emily // Brittany
Middle row : Elisa // Katie // Ashley // Jessica // Erin // Emma

Don't you just love it when bloggy friendships turn into the real thing. It's pretty awesome stuff! I couldn't think of a better way to get back into the blogging routine than sharing this experience with y'all. I'll be re-capping lots of fun that the hubby and I have shared over the summer in the next few posts to come. Happy Hump Day Y'all!
