The Absolute Best Birthday Celebration!! // 30 is The New 20

I want to begin by thanking Kaci for organizing and coordinating our very best birthday to date. She did an amazing job! Also, I cannot thank Sara of Sara Miller Photography enough for capturing these photos for us! These are just some of the many she got from our gathering at The Hive, the cutest event space anywhere. Lastly, Kendale Ball, chef and mastermind behind Simpl Food Arts made us the most delicious food that everyone couldn’t get enough of!

I’m  mostly going to just let the photos speak for themselves with some captions here and there. Thank you to all who came out and celebrated with us!!

Kaci made all 48 cupcakes herself using Pillsbury’s natural cupcake and buttercream products. They were outstanding.

I chose a cherry pie from Old Milly Bread Company, and thanks to Matt, we were able to transfer it to my Pioneer Woman pie dish.

We decided to use gold for Kaci and silver for me to honor each of our unique vibes. 🙂

When we were born, our mom joked that she got “scared”, so Kaci was nicknamed Boo as she was born first, and I became Boo Boo. We call each other that, so this was my birthday card to her. 🙂

Trissa is an absolute angel and the sweetest!! A work obligation caused her to run late, but rather than miss it altogether, she came by and got to spend time with us. It meant the world to see her!

  1. Happppy birthdayyy!! (I know it was last week, BUT let’s keep the party going!!)

    THESE PICTURES. Holy smokes- I can’t get over them. They are amazing! (there is not a word to do them justice). & Those cupcakes are giving me a serious sweet tooth.

    LOVE the gold and silver theme together- too fun & so perfect.

    YOU TWO!!! Ahhh sooo STUNNING. 30 looks AMAZING on you two.

    Did I mention I cannot get over these pictures?!?!?! The candid ones may be my fave but I loveee every single one.

    Both of your joy and beauty and radiance of positivity just warms my heart. Not sure any duo has brought in 30 any better!

    1. Awww yes, let’s! I’m not ready to stop celebrating. 😉 Thank you!!

      THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I am beyond grateful to have these photos to cherish. Kase did an amazing job on the cupcakes!

      Wow, thank you so much!! I was honestly nervous about turning 30. As silly as it sounds, I felt like I would automatically age somehow just because the connotation with getting older or hitting a new decade. But so far, it’s been an incredible age even if just for a very very short time. 🙂

      Candids are the best! I love all of the expressions and people just being themselves. I love to pose for photos, but sometimes not being overly posed or ready makes them so much more fun!

      Your words mean so so much to us!! Thank you! I’m so appreciative that Kase followed through on this party – it was the absolute best. ❤

    2. You are the sweetest!!!! We had SO much fun partying it up! Sara was one of my wedding photographers and one of the sweetest girl’s ever so it was a joy to work with her again, and we were both beyond thrilled with the photos! I’m a photo junkie, so I love having such amazing photos to always look back on. I wish I could’ve shared the cuppycakes with you! I may have made just a few too many…bahahaha but they were delish. I even whipped out my fancy shmancy KitchenAid mixer that we received for our wedding, which was exciting since I’ve only used it once or twice….it’s a little daunting and heavy. lolz It does serve as a great decorative piece. 😉 Is it sad that one of my greatest accomplishment’s this day is curling my own hair? I’ve only curled it a handful of times in my whole life, and it was about 98 degrees that day so I think it’s a birthday miracle I was able to curl it and get it to stay fairly curled all day. :)) Oh & I’ll leave you with this fantastic life mantra: when in doubt pinkie out….makes everything fancy, even when you look completely bananas

      1. Haha- I wish you could have shared them with me too!!! (can you ever have too many cupcakes though? 😉 ). Ohh my goodness- I was just thinking about how I need to use my KitchenAid more. so funny you say that! Bahah right?! Which color did you go for?!

        I am the SAME way. I cannot curl my own hair for crap. You did AMAZING. And I’m actually so glad I’m not alone in not curling hair on a regular basis.

        LOL- oh my gosh, I’m obsessed. That’s AMAZING. Thank you for sharing that incredible mantra with me. I wish I had the laughing face emoji on this laptop. hahah.

  2. I got the pistachio color! It looks kind of vintage, which I love. I tell myself that it was a gift & something that should last for years & years so even if I don’t use it a ton, it was worth asking for.

    Thank you so much!!! I was kind of nervous to wing it & curl my hair but it was fun & felt nice to be able to say I did it instead of having to make someone else do it. 🙂
