Countdown to 30: Birthdays Past

I intended to blog more this week with more Countdown to 30 posts but time got away from me! This is one that I HAD to share though :) 

So, in honor of my 30th birthday party being TOMORROW, here are my pictures from some of my past birthdays.... 





Please make sure to notice the cat shirt in this picture... haha





Yes, having a birthday on October 27th, usually meant my party was a Halloween party. Pretty much all the birthday parties I remember were dress up parties. 








More cats!! haha


God, what was I thinking??? This had to of been 4th or 5th grade. Ugh, horrible.



Again... what in the world??? That was my "i just got my own phone line!" face!




In middle school I went through a smiley face phase...?!



This one I know was 10th grade because of the 2000 on our shirts. My birthday has ALWAYS revolved around football season. I was in marching band in HS so we always celebrated my birthday Friday night after the football game either IHOP, Bennigans or Chilis. Those were the only things open at 11pm after the games. This would also explain the ribbons in our hair and matching shirts!



This was 12th grade. My birthday week fell on Kiss a Senior Day so those were our shirts we made. 



I think this was my 20th birthday...



Oh and the infamous 21st... this was apparently before I knew about the straightener??? We made our way around the square in Denton getting our free shots... ha






This was 2007. My first birthday post major break up. I drank a whole bottle of wine at Ren Fest and ended up not making it to my birthday night. 



2008 - first birthday with John! 




And my 29th birthday last year :) 



I'll be back next week to add on pictures from my 30th!!!

Oh my gosh, I love these so much! I think every 80's girl went through a smiley face stage in middle school. How was that ever even cool?

Can't wait to celebrate tomorrow!

Happy almost-birthday! I haven't been to Ren Fest since I have been old enough to drink but I can only imagine how messy a day out there can get. I wouldn't make it to night time, either!

I love how you went through the years! You're a cutie! John is one lucky fella!

My birthday is tomorrrow (26th) and I can totally relate to all your birthday woes haha, always Halloween themed and always in sports season (mine was hockey though, since I'm in Canada) ALSO I always had to have a joint birthday party with my brother and sister, they are twins born on the 29th of October the year I turned two!

haha I love these. I also went through a smiley face phase. There was definitely a time period in the late 90's/early 2000's where they were just a thing. So odd!
