My 29th Birthday (The Sequel).

On Saturday, I celebrated my 29th birthday … the sequel.

Just kidding.  I turned … gulp … 30!

My husband made my transition into the 30’s pretty fabulous, though.  The fun started when I woke up on Saturday morning, went downstairs, and found this:


Chocolate muffins and mimosas.  The man knows the way to my heart!


After spending the afternoon at home, Brandon and I headed out to dinner in Atlanta, while GiGi (my mom) stayed at the house and watched Addison.


We were pretty excited about a night out!


Dinner was at a restaurant called Agave.


I’ve actually blogged about the restaurant before, and I got the same meal (scallops!) that I ordered last time.


After dinner, Brandon had another surprise up his sleeve …


… a Ferris wheel ride!

This was my first experience on a Ferris wheel.  I was pretty nervous (I’m not a fan of heights!), but I liked the fact that you sat in a “gondola,” vs. a seat that wasn’t enclosed.


The Ferris wheel is 200 feet high.  When you’re at the top, you are able to see all of downtown Atlanta!


Not going to lie.  I definitely closed my eyes a few times, and I kept a tight grasp on Brandon throughout the ride.  But when I wasn’t completely terrified, I have to admit that it was pretty romantic!

Being the crazy party animals that we are, we ended the night by crashing in bed in our hotel room by about 10:00.  Par-tay. Smile with tongue out

The next morning, we enjoyed breakfast at Starbucks before attending a gathering at Passion City Church.

By the time church was over, we were both ready to get home to see our baby!


(She is loving solid foods, by the way!  Roasted sweet potatoes have been a big hit!)

And that was our weekend!  I guess if I had to turn 30, it was a pretty good way to do so!

Question for ya …

What did you do this weekend?

Anyone have any fears, like of heights?

Finally … here’s a little cuteness for you!


She’s going to hate me for these pictures one day. Winking smile


Have a great day, everyone!

    Happy birthday! On a side note…that ferris wheel use to be on Pensacola Beach and was just recently moved to Atlanta. My kids loved it when it was here and the view was amazing!!

    Happy Happy Happy birthday!! I forgot that you mentioned that your birthday was the same day as our move! Those ferris wheels are so fun! We went on one very similar in Seattle. Paul was just like you…a nervous wreck! hehe. It sounds like you had a fantastic birthday, Brandon treats his lady right. =) And those last two pics are killing me. Love them!

    Very cool that your birthday is pretty close to mine! I really did turn 29, though… actually on August 29. So I’m getting nervous as 30 approaches! It sounds like you’re embracing it well, though! Glad you had a nice dinner out! The ferris wheel ride would’ve scared me to death because I don’t like heights, either!! I do agree that being enclosed helps. Planes and other things like that don’t bother me, but I thought I was going to die on a ski lift!!
