My 29th Bday

This past Friday was my 29th birthday!  I've heard this is the age you stay forever.  From now on, I will always say I'm 29.  ;)  It was a fun day!  My parents and grandparents came up that afternoon and we played with Westin and when Cody came home we headed out for pizza.  I love pizza and always want it.  Cody, on the other hand, hardly ever wants it so I had to take advantage of the opportunity since I got to pick the restaurant. 
We got a quick family picture before heading out.  I didn't get any pics at dinner but Jason and Katie and her parents also joined us. 
It was a little cooler outside when we left so we let Westin run around the square for awhile.



Quick pic with Gigi and Papa.
And Gran and G-Daddy.
We then came home and had cake.  It was really good!  Cody picked it out all by himself.  :)
I mostly got $$ for my birthday and I'm saving it for IKEA next weekend.  (Lindsey and I are going again and taking our moms!)  I did spare $5 for this fun vase from TJMaxx though.  :)

Your family is just precious! Westin keeps getting more adorable every time you post a new picture!

I didn't know you were my age. I thought you were a few years younger! 29 will forever be our age... hee hee!

Happy Belated Birthday! Wow - you are still so young! Don't worry - the 30's really aren't bad at all - Im actually enjoying them more than my 20's :) Of course I am turning 35 this year so I guess I have accepted it by now..hahaha!

Westin is so cute - love seeing the pics of him walking around - looks like such a big boy!

Looks like you had a great birthday. I'm jealous of your upcoming trip to IKEA. The closest one to me is over 2 hours away so I don't get there often. Have fun!

Angel said...

Happy Birthday! On a random note, I really like the shirt you're wearing in these pictures - if you don't mind sharing, where did you get it?

Happy b-day! Westin is absolutely adorable! I really enjoy your blog. I love your decorating style too! Your blog is one that inspired me to start my own blog recently! Thanks for the inspiration!

Happy Birthday!! I'm glad it was such a good one for you. I just turned 30 last month, and plan on saying I'm 30 for the next couple of years :)

Happy Birthday Shannon. I live in Colorado (near Denver) and our IKEA opens on 7-27. I am so excited b/c I've never been before. I will be there on Juy 30th. Happy shopping to you.

Happy Birthday, Shannon!!! Loved seeing the pictures of your special day. Your hubby did a great job picking out the cake---love the colors. Your flowers in your new vase are so pretty, too. I recently visited the Ikea nearest us(the one in Minneapolis)and fell in love. That store is the best. Hope you have a wonderful Ikea/mom trip. Sounds like fun.:)
