The Big 3-0

Cody turned THIRTY today!!! 

I had a lot of fun making his cake this year! What would be better than a football field for the football lover?! I made the grass out of dyed coconut. The goal is blue in support of our team: the Dallas Cowboys :) The cake is dark chocolate so that it will look like dirt when its cut.

The big 3-0

I also wanted to give something for my beer lover...

This year the gift idea came pretty easy (with the help of Pinterest) of course! I decided to make a basket of 30 gifts for 30 years! I made little sayings to go with each item - "Turning 30... _____". 

30 for 30

Cody's parents took us out to Cody's new favorite restaurant for lunch (Genghis Grill).

Later we took the girls out to dinner at Bigz and I had some close friends come and surprise Cody...turned out to be a great evening!!!
