Saying Goodbye...

This past weekend I was lucky enough to spend my last days as a 20-something with my whole family. Some people look at their farewell to the 20s as a sad day, a day of sorrow, as if they will never have a good time again, now that they are 30. Not here... I say, goodbye 20s and HELLO 30s! Life is getting more exciting!
What better way to celebrate than to spend the day shopping at a beautiful mall with one of my favorite people, no kids, and some extra birthday $dough$?? Dream day. Then, it did get better as Ryan and I got all dolled up to go out to a restaurant we wouldn't normally visit. Fat's Asian Bistro was more than we bargained for. This place has appetizers that tempt you to buy more, and main dishes that are so succulent, they melt in your mouth with every bite. Not to mention the banana cream birthday pie they presented at the end of the evening. WOW! This is our new NUMBER 1 place to eat out. (good thing it's not close by, we'd be broke). Back at Mom & Dad's, a chocolate-cake-to-die-for was awaiting, topped with a blaze of 30 candles. It's always fun to make a birthday wish!
The evening was perfect already, and then to top it off, my sweet husband adorned me with a true "grown -up girl" gift...a strand of pearls, white and Tahitian black pearls with matching earrings! I've never owned fine jewelery. I couldn't think of a more glamorous way to welcome my 30s! Thanks to all for making it such a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday, Kelly!
Welcome to the 30's! It's quite fun, if I do say so myself.
How wonderful to be "home" with the entire Jibson clan on such a special day! It looked like you had a great time.
p.s.
Love the pearls!
Good job, Ryan.
