30 and flirty and thriving!

Yesterday was my good friend Melissa's birthday, and she turned the big 3-0! Us WASPs -wait, I don't think I've ever talked about the WASPs, have I? Sidebar!

The WASPs (It's a secret, so I'm not going to tell you what this means, but it for sure does not mean White Anglo Saxon Protestants!) are a group of my great friends and me. Over the years, gals have been added, and we've grown to nine! We are pretty varied in age, jobs, and families, but we all have good fun and friendship in common. We get together weekly for lunch on Thursdays, and we also usually hit happy hour once a week. We sometimes celebrate holidays together, and we always get together for a WASP birthday!

(not my fave picture, but it is the most recent of all of us)
Ok, so back on track, us WASPs got together for Melissa's big day. It was such a pretty day, so we met at Los Tres Amigos on the patio for some beverages. Together, we all got Melissa cash and lottery tickets to get her in the mood for her Vegas trip next month, vino and these awesome stemless wine glasses from Pier 1 that have a little chalkboard for writing names on them. I want some now (check them out)! We played a game, and we made her wear a silly visor that Amber made. She also made us all cute koozies, and I got a cake - which we never do for birthdays!

Then we went bowling, and Melissa's sister joined us with a friend, and some of our guys came too. I sat it out this time. Why? Well, we all got kicked out of the office early yesterday on account of the gorgeous day, so I treated myself to my first professional mani/pedi in a loooong time. I couldn't mess my nails up by sticking them in a bowling ball!! I even let the girl talk me into a flower design on my big toes for the first time ever. They are pretty cute!

I'll try to add more pictures from the bday extravaganza if I get any before I leave work.

Your toes look toooo cute!!!! Great minds definitely do think alike!! and yes, I have noticed that you do have gorgeous hair!! Is it naturally wavy like that? Because if so, consider me very jealous!!! :)

Better late than never - thank you!! :) The design on my toes still looks awesome after two weeks - well worth the $5!

And yes, my hair is naturally wavy like that. It's only been within the last few months that I have finally embraced it (and found a great product for taming frizz) and started wearing it wavy more and more. My hair is just so thick and long now - drying and straightening it is such a chore!
