Why my friends are the best

I'm really lucky.  I have awesome friends!  Not only are they just amazing to begin with but they definitely made turning 30 so much fun!  I mentioned earlier that I was going to see Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean last Friday night for my birthday.  Well let me tell you, it was one of my favorite birthdays ever!  And it isn't even my actual birthday yet!!!
Be prepared for photo overload
We planned out our tailgate (I wish I took a picture of our planning sheet) and met up at the Hard Rock Casino to consolidate cars and head over to the amphitheatre.  We set up shop in a nice little spot and started our tailgate.  They decorated a little for my birthday:

We had some food, even if there was only sourdough and white bread ;)

An intense game of Flip Cup ensued

Followed by what I think was modified corn hole or "throw the bean bags at whoever/whatever you could throw them at"

And of course there were millions of pictures taken

And Mindy ended up on the roof of our car.  I still don't know why or how that happened!

Then we headed in to find our seats.  The Hubs was nice enough to let Mindy take his ticket and sit down low with us while he sat in the lawn with the boys.  Luke Bryan was amazing as always!  I just love him!!!  Can't wait until he starts headlining his own tours.
Then we went up to sit with the boys on the lawn for Jason Aldean.  He was good too but definitely not as good as Luke.  Although I might be a little partial!!!
Then we headed to the cars, where we sat for like 40 minutes without moving.  We made it back to the casino, grabbed some pizza, and then called it a night.  I could barely keep my eyes open. Yes, I'm officially old.  I can't even stay awake past midnight!

I know this sounds cheesy but I am so blessed to have met such amazing people.  They are the best!  They still love me regardless of my limited availability, my crazy husband, and my kiddos.  I think my 30s are definitely going to be the best years of my life!!!!


  1. Ahh, just as you are entering your 30's I am sadly leaving them! Looks like your birthday was lots of fun! Just learned about flip cup, it's really fun, glad to see it's a universal game, lol. Happy belated birthday! :D

  2. Whatan awesome way to bring in your 30's. Hope they are some of the best years of your life :)

  3. How fun!!! Looks like the concert was a blast :-)

  4. Looks like so much fun! Happy early birthday. I could look at Luke Bryan all day without getting bored. The video for Country Man is my favorite. I have watched it so so many times. It's embarrassing.

  5. Looks like a great time! I am so bummed I didn't get tix, too. Looks like a great bday celebration!
