So...I turned 30!!! My birthday was this past Saturday and I made a week-long celebration out of it. First, I bought my traditional pumpkin pie and ate a piece every day leading up to my birthday. Then, my best friend Emily flew to Denver on Tuesday so she could be here for the festivities. We spent the first few days exploring Denver, Boulder, and Castle Rock. Then on Saturday we went to Nordstrom and got our makeup professionally done.
Here's a before and after picture from getting my makeup done at Bobbi Brown...
When we got back to my apartment my mom had put a Happy Birthday sign on my door and decorated my living room with a banner and balloons. She's so thoughtful!!
On Saturday afternoon we drove up to Black Hawk to visit the casinos and stay overnight at the Ameristar Resort & Casino.
Overall it was a great week and I'm really sad it's over! I guess now I need to start planning something else to look forward to...
Birthday Countdown: 14 days
In exactly two weeks I will be turning 30! To celebrate the beginning of my countdown, I'd like to look back at what I did for my birthday last year. When I turned 29, I decided I wanted to perform 29 random acts of kindness on my birthday. I took the day off work and headed out with my mom to spend the day doing a number of different acts of kindness.
Here's a partial list of what we did:
We had a great day and hopefully made a few people happy with the random kindness we showed them. I'd like to think that our acts of kindness had a ripple affect and trickled down to other people along the way.
Have you ever experienced a random act of kindness from a stranger? Please share in the comments section!
