4 day Birthday Celebration!

Well I finally reached the end of the third decade of my life, and I don't quite feel different yet, as someone said I will now get sick more (and I was sick on my birthday).
I do feel better now and I am ready to become a 30 year old mature woman (What is that exactly? - no clue). I am not married and no where close to it, I do have a good carreer, I don't have any kids (not ready for them anyways, I just work with them), and I have traveled more then most people (my favorite thing).
Anyways I wanted to tell you all a little bit about my birthday celebration.
Friday morning my friend and I headed for Lanai to work for a few hours before starting our wonderful weekend. We saw three kids and headed to the hotel where we were greeted with leis. We were told our room was not ready so we spent three hours in the teen game room sleeping or trying to on the couches in there. When we got our room we were so excited (at least I was, L. went to bed she was so tired) I started jumping on the beds and unpacking moving in to our new place. I was so big and elegant. We also had a great view.









The rest of the weekend we just spent relaxing and enjoying the pool, spa and fittness center. I had three other friends come out. We had two rooms and we all tried to spend time relaxing but one evening we went out dressed up for dinner together. It was good and somewhat out of our price range, but worth it for the fun.

Here are some pictures from our weekend.

Dessert goodness!

Well, that's it for now. I leave for Romania on Wednesday so my next post will probably be a little before or when I reach Romania.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy late birthday! Great pics. That dessert plate looks REALLy good. The Kea Lani is where Ryan and I stayed on our Honeymoon - I named our dog after the hotel since she was an anniversary gift. Kea. I was told we pronounce it wrong but we can't change it now.
Safe travels.

April, I always thought your dog was named after Ikea! Then you would pronounce it correctly. :)

Gilda,
That dessert looks so good, did you eat it all yourself??? Wow, lucky you. It looks like you had a wonderful 30th B-day celebration. Wish I could've been there... Maybe next time. Maybe we'll have to repeat it for my 30th B-day in December! I hope so...we'll work on that.


Good luck getting all the preparations for your trip! Hope you had a good time at your conference. And a good pre-trip meeting. Is everything ready?
