I don't want to seem boastful but I just have to share something wonderful with all my friends here. On saturday I went to a lovely lunch with my mother-in-law and my husband's godmother. It was such a great day - despite the HUGE HUGE downpour that occured in the middle of our ladies morning!

Well, we started driving home and were just talking until I noted that there were lots of cars parked down my street so I said "I guess my neighbors had a party & didn't invite me" well - the cars were there for a party for me!!! My DH had arranged the whole thing for my (gulp) 30th birthday (which is this Thursday) and all my friends and family had driven up to spend the day celebrating with me. It was such a great party and I was having so much fun and then . . . . . . my DH pulled into the driveway with a NEW CAR!!!

We had taken it for a test drive a few weeks ago and had talked about purchasing it in late summer/early fall so I was very surprised to see it coming up my driveway!!!

I will now feel so much safer in the winters when I drive from Court to Court on the snowy and poorly plowed roads! Meet my new car :)

My sister was also incredibly thoughtful and had a sign handmade to celebrate my lawfirm! I have hung it over my bulletin board in my home office - I am in LOVE with this sign and am so appreciative of her thoughtfulness!

Thank you for letting me share some of my "Day to Remember". I consider so many of you my dear friends that I simply didn't want to not share this moment with you:wub:

:cheer::cheer:Erin - Happy Birthday-to-be (such a relief, I'm usually belated :brownbag:) What a wonderful surprise having everyone there to celebrate with you.:chili: I do love surprise parties. When you don't expect them and you see little bits of things - a familiar face, then another, etc. - and it's out of your frame of reference (why are they here?) and then you realize :duh oh: they're here for my birthday!! It doesn't get much better than that.
Love your new car and as a VT driver know how important all wheel drive is. Beautiful color too! And how thoughtful of your sister. Boy, Tuesday's going to be kind of anti-climactic after all that. Maybe just a romantic dinner with DH and kisses and hugs from Hunter.:wub::wub: Priceless.:thumbsup: Or a romantic dinner with Hunter and kisses and hugs from DH. I'll let you work it out. :HistericalSmiley:

Erin -- what a wonderful, wonderful surprise. I can't think of anyone who deserves it as much as you do. The new car, the surprise party, the wonderful lunch with your MIL -- so tell us -- how long did it take you to stop crying (from happiness)? LOL

Is your B-Day the 15th? Mine is the next day. 30 is a wonderful age -- especially with your new law firm. BTW -- I love the new car too.

Happy Birthday Erin! Is that a Nissan X-Terra? I love those. It looks like a nice sturdy ride.

Happy 30th, Erin! :cheer: What a very special surprise to have all of your friends there to celebrate with you. People lead busy lives, and for them to take the time to drive over to be a part of it is wonderful...and that NEW CAR! It's great! That is so neat that your husband was saving it for your birthday surprise. :chili: Hunter will have to tell us all about his first ride in it when the time comes. :aktion033:

My husband turned 30 this year and I also threw him a surprise party with old and new friends (a couple even from his jr high / highschool years!) and he was so shocked. It really made him feel good because we don't have many friends any more now that we've grown up a bit and focused on marriage, his career, and our house. A lot of the people we were friends with just aren't in the same place as we are at our age. We have each other, though, and in the end that is what matters. :thumbsup:

Happy Birthday! B)

Wishing you many, many happy returns of the day! It is always fun to see others treat us well----and they sure did that, didn't they! I am turning 65 next week and little Kitzel was my b-day wish! I don't have any more wishes!
I hope you enjoy your big day tomorrow! Blessings and hugs as you continue to celebrate.
