My favorite birthday present was when mom and dad took me to the beach with YOU during "The Best Summer of My Life"---really, I am not hanging on to that or anything...I just thought it would make you laugh! =-)

Oh, I also like Adam's post--that was funny!

Happy Birthday!!! It actually is pretty cool to be 30. =)

Favorite birthday present....hmmm. I don't really know. My birthday and Christmas are so close together they kind of run together. I did like the printer I got last Christmas/birthday!!!

Hmm, I think my favorite birthday present ever was my surprise 30th birthday party and the sweet slideshow you made me. And running a close second would be the "pizza delivery" where you and your fam showed up at my door with the pizza!

So I thought maybe relatives wouldn't be able to enter this contest...but then I saw Adam right at the top! He didn't blog about it too?;)

How do you subscribe?

So I am a secret stalker... I love looking at your pics! I have been talking to my husband about getting a nice camera before we start a family so I can be prepared... :0)

My favorite birthday present was my dresser my parents gave me last year that matched Aaron's bedroom furniture. It was the official "I'm moving in" item! :0)
