My Birthday Recap

On Saturday July 30, 2011 I turned 33.

That means its been 3 years since I turned 30. Whhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaattttttttt?

Time is flying!

I wanted to share a couple of interesting facts about the number 33:

*The Atomic number of Arsenic
*A normal spine has 33 vertebrae
*Jesus's age when He was crucified
*Jesus performed 33 recorded miracles
*33 is not only a numerical representation for "The Star of David" but also the numerical equivalent of AMEN: 1+13+5+14=33
*Retired number of Celtics Hall of Famer Larry Bird

Enough of that; back to my birthday celebration. We went to breakfast at IHOP and then went to the pool and I worked on my tan. I am so tan this summer y'all! :) Later that night we dropped the boys off at my parents house for the night (can I get an Amen for Grandparents?!)

Last year we started a tradition of going out with our besties Heather (in orange) & Brandon and Andrew & Whitney (in pink) (side note: Andrew is Bryan's cousin who married my good childhood friend Whitney). So last year we went to Federal Jack's in Kennebunkport:

This year we went to Salt Water Grille in South Portland.

It was a glorious summer night. Beautiful sunset.

It was good to feel the summer wind.
