this is thirty. {tater's surprise birthday weekend}

last friday we went out to dinner to celebrate nicole's 30th bday. little did she know that nate, wes and i were conspiring with three of her best friends from california who were on their way up to surprise her. unfortunatley, their flight was delayed a couple hours which meant we had to keep nicole out on the town until 1am {not hard to do after we entered a kareoke bar and ordered a bottle of champs...yes i said bottle}.

the look on her face when they walked into the bar was absolutely priceless and there may have even been a few tears {it may have been the champs talking because if you know nicole you know she doesn't cry}.

we spent the whole weekend being tourists in our own city and laughing uncontrollably all while eating and drinking our way through seattle!

{it was freezing but we had to do the space needle and enjoyed a drink at the top}

this was seriously one of the greatest surprises of my life. i am forever grateful to my besties for taking the time to fly to seattle and hang with me as i leave a huge chapter in my life for an even greater one. i know this is cliche but i truly have THE BEST friends a girl could ask for. it means more to me than they know that they came to celebrate with me. and i know it couldn't have worked without the help of my hubs, tot and wes - thank you for helping make this happen it was more than i ever expected and i am so extremely happy that you all conspired together because it was one of the best weekends of my life. cheers to a new decade of making memories, having fun, not taking life too seriously and of course eating and drinking our way through the years. this is thirty.
