This weekend I went to Boston to celebrate Allyson's 30th birthday. Allyson and I have been best friends for 17 years and when we were about 20 or 21 we decided when we turned 30 we would leave our kids home with our husbands and go out for a big night in NYC.
Bless us, we didn't have a clue what it would be like to be 30. The closest we are to that prediction is that I live in NYC and Allyson just got engaged like a month ago.
We started off the day with Allyson's family, fiance and 2 other best friends at the Olive Garden. Mmmm, bread sticks!
Paws' gift to Allyson was a box of receipts. He's such a thoughtful cat.
Allyson's mom makes the most amazing carrot cake in the world.
Allyson is a micro-manager when it comes to her b-day.
A toast to Allyson!
Carrot cake down! Don't worry, we scooped it up and had ourselves a late-night snack.
