Is that normal??

1.  Is it normal to lie about your age??
I don't lie about my age, but I may start to after this year!!  I think that in my line of work people they I'm younger than what I actually am and I have no problem with that!!
2.  Is it normal to have mistaken someone for the opposite sex??
Yes, if the way they dress is questionable, but I would never say it to their face.
3.  Is it normal to go #2 in a public restroom??
Sure, if you gotta go, you gotta go!
4.  Is it normal to sit RIGHT NEXT TO a stranger at the movie theater??
N-O no!!  Please give me a little space!!
5.  Is it normal to lie about your weight??
Very few people are actually happy about their weight, so yes, it is the norm to lie about your weight!
6.  Is it normal to sing and dance in your car??
Yes, yes it is!!  I love to sing and dance and nobody is watching me in my car, right?!?
7.  Is it normal to take self-pictures in public??
Ummm, not of just myself but with me and my friends yes!
8.  Is it normal for women to have a gun license??
Not my norm but I'm sure many women do.
9.  Is it normal to post pictures online of yourself in your bikini??
I've done it.  We were at the river and another time at a birthday party.  It's not like I was strikin' a pose like I'm a model or something.
10.  Is it normal to like the smell of gasoline??

My Surprise 30th Birthday Party

So, normally I would do a complete weekend wrap-up becuase it is Sunday night, but since my entire weekend consisted of my birthday plans, I'm doing this instead!
On Friday, I went that morning after getting off work and took care of the restaurant.  I wanted to go get my mani and pedi but the salon wasn't open till 10 and it was 9.  I still needed to go home to sleep because I needed to be back at the restaurant to work at 4.  I slept for a few hours then got up to get ready for work.  We had a good night at work and then I headed home to clean my house because my sister and brother-in-law were going to be staying the night Saturday.
I set my alarm so I could get up and make it to the salon when it opened. I definitely should have made an appointment because I had 6 people come in after me and went in front of me. I had planned to do a mani, pedi and an eyebrow wax. After sitting there for 50 minutes I finally got to sit to get my nails done. As I'm soaking off my shellac my nail guy decided to paint a little girl and her moms fingers and toes. It took him 35 minutes even though he told me I only needed to soak for 5 more minutes. I was so aggravated. By the time he got back to me, I told him I would just be getting my nails done and to cancel the rest. I had been there for an hour and 45 minutes at this point and beyond annoyed. I'm pretty sure I won't be going back! Anyway, I went home to shower and get ready so I could head to Niki's. We left her house a little later than planned but we got to the winery about the same time as all my other friends. So, the plan for the day was to go to a winery then a restaurant to eat dinner. A lot of the people I had invited to go told me they weren't going to be able to make it but I was having a good time.

So, by this point at the winery I have heard from my parents and they said they were going to be at the restaurant by 6.  My other friend Lacy called also asking where the restaurant was because she thought she passed it.  My sister was supposed to be at my house taking a shower and then going to the restaurant.  I was worried Lacy was there by herself and told Lindsay to make sure she found her in the parking lot since we weren't there yet.  I was so afraid my parents were going to be mad because we were going to be late so I kept telling everybody to hurry up and finish their drinks so we could leave.  We left and when Niki & I went to the gas station the rest of the group went on to the restaurant.  We went to park at the restaurant and I saw my friend Danielle's car, she told me she had to work and couldn't come.  I started crying and then Laryssa came out to get us so we would go in the side door and when I walked through the door I heard SURPRISE!!!  I was balling by this point!  I had no idea all the people were going to be there!!  I have never had a surprise birthday party before and this was amazing!!!  I have the greatest friends ever!!!

I still can't believe they all surprised me!!  It was the best birthday I've ever had!!  I don't think I can ever thank people enough for everything they did to pull this off!!  I have the greatest family and friends anybody could ask for and I am so grateful. 
After we were all done with the party, some people went home and some of us decided to go out for a bit.  We had a good time hanging out, laughing and dancing a little bit.  It ended up being a big slumber party at  my house. 
We all got up the next morning and everybody headed back home.  I got dropped off at Niki's because that's where my car was.  We lounged around in her new pool all day and then went to her parent's house (my IL parents) to celebrate her dad's birthday with dinner and dessert. 

Thank you so much to everyone who made this weekend possible!!  It was AMAZING and I can't believe I got to have such a fabulous day!!  I'm one lucky girl and so blessed!!!  Thanks again!!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I didn't do much during the day but wash my car.  I had to be at the restaurant at 4 to work till close.  I went to Niki's after I got off work to set out my garage sale stuff then ended up staying the night with them. 

We were up by 5:45am to get everything ready for the garage sale to open at 7am.  We had a good steady amount of people all morning.  I ended up not making any money but that's okay, I'm pretty sure I came home with just as much stuff as I started with!  HA!!  We were closed up by 1 and I headed to my friend Jessica's to get ready to go to Josh & Allison's wedding reception.

Evidence of the fun times we were having!!
Heidi & I
We spent the rest of the night eating and drinking and dancing!!  It was so much fun!  The place was beautiful, it was the property of the bride and groom and they had a huge white tent over all the tables.  It was hot but there were big fans set up in the barn and it was air conditioned where they had the bar and all the desserts.  It was so nice!! 

I slept in late then went to the gym and by the restaurant to take care of some things for them.  Now it's time to relax a little before I have to get ready to work the next 3 nights.
