Though it was a couple weeks after my actual birthday, I celebrated last night with my second annual Very Pink Birthday Party (where I make all my friends wear pink…yes…even the boys).


Of course, I wore head to toe pink.

When I thought about how I wanted to celebrate my 30th birthday over the last couple years, I envisioned something over-the-top fancy, like a wedding reception. It’s funny that instead, I went uber-casual and decided to just have pizza and go out to a local bar for dancing. I think it ended up being more fun this way anyways!


We headed out to my favorite local pizza joint – Luisa’s Brick Oven Pizzeria.

I was fortunate to have lots of my food blog and zumba friends come out to celebrate. I only wish I got more photos of them!!

Here are some photos from dinner…

After dinner, it was time for dancing!! We went to Andrew Blairs, just down the road.

We all had a BLAST! 🙂

Thank you so much to all my friends who celebrated with me in person and in spirit!!! Thank you for helping make my 30th birthday extra special! 🙂

Reader question: Do you have themed birthday parties? What kind?
