It was very sweet. Jonah planned a whole evening of surprises.
It began at Balthazar with a kiss for making it to 30 and still looking 19 (just leave this statement alone):
Delicious Steak au Poivre:
And then surprise! Meeting up with friends at Bowlmor Lanes! I was so happy not to be sitting in a bar, drinking with friends and not doing anything besides drinking and talking...I think someone's really turned 30!!
In case you forgot how old I turned...
Forget 'birthday'! Let's just celebrate the person!
Duncan lit the candles - he's had a thing for fire since a very early age:
Do I have to turn 30?? Yes.
Summoning up the breath...it's tough after 30 years of bong hits (hilarious!):
Freshly whipped cream and my favorite...strawberries!!
Every party needs cartoon plates:
Time to get serious:
Another bunion (albeit smaller) in the midst! Don't worry, I won't tell who it belongs to...Annie.
They've been married for 5 years and been on the same bowling league for 10:
Duncan dislocated his shoulder and we had to pop it back in, Lethal Weapon style - he stops at nothing for bowling:
Annie and Sally and Strawberry:
I do a real disappearing act when I bowl:
Lily & Sandy:
Mary 'Ball of Fire' Patterson:
You can do it, sweet pea.
To each his own...
Sally & Tosan:
The Passion of the Bowler (Sandy):
Peace signs are contagious - spread the cheer:
End of the night - time to walk into traffic - j/k.
Everything good must come to an end...in the garbage shoot:
Thanks to Jonah and friends for a super fun evening, for contributing goods, for the photos (I didn't take a single one!) and for the LOVE.
* For those not yet 30, know that the pain is temporary. The week leading up to and then the culmination on birthday day is painful but the next morning it's all gone...and so are your 20's.
