It’s August 4, 2016 and that can mean only one thing… it’s my 30th birthday!

Last night I did my last run ever as a 20-something!

I was really kind of feeling it and did leg day too.

I know it makes no sense whatsoever to do leg day on a Wednesday when I’ve been doing it on Sundays all training cycle, but when it’s your last day in your 20s you can do whatever workout you want!

3 x 10 @ 215lbs on leg press because that’s how you say goodbye to your 20s and welcome your 30s!

Thanks to my mom for picking out the perfect birthday gift bag! How did she know I like cats? It’s almost as if she’s known me for 30 years or something.

She bought me a bunch of cruelty free beauty and skincare items including this face wash I have been eyeing up for a while!

Thanks mom!!! How do you always know just what I want?!

Adam got me a trip to NEW YORK CITY! We’ll be going for a few nights later this month :). You’ll never guess where he hid my birthday card… in the fridge!

If you’re wondering how I have all of these birthday card and gift pics already it’s because I opened everything early/at midnight. I am so bad at waiting!

I can’t wait to see what else today has in store. Last year when I got home from work Adam had my favorite episodes of The Mindy Project queued up to watch. I honestly think that may be the most romantic, thoughtful thing he has ever done. Will he top it this year? Is that even possible? Let’s find out! 🙂 #NoPressure

I hope you have a great day!

What is your best bday memory?!

    Happy Birthday!! I am also so bad at waiting to open gifts–and at waiting to give gifts. My husband always gets his birthday present the day I get it, because I can never wait until his actual birthday. Hope you have a great day today! 🙂
