dooms day

It's official -- Bryan is 30 years old! 

He turned 30 on Friday the 13th. Pretty cool if I do say so myself!

We had a weekend full of mini celebrations, starting with my dad flying into town and taking us out to dinner at 131 Main for Bry's last meal in his 20's!


The next morning the birthday boy awoke to a hearty meal made by none other than Cali... She's such a good little cook!


 That night we headed down to Nikko Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar for a swanky birthday meal. I am happy to report that it took us just less than 2 years to find, what is in our opinion, the best sushi restaurant in Charlotte. Oh my word -- it's amazing!


 Back home we sang Happy Birthday, chowed on some cupcakes and sipped Mumm Napa champagne


All in all it was a fine birthday... just fine. Bryan and I are not fans of our birthdays and this year 30 hit him pretty hard. I must admit I'm elated for him to finally be 30 with me! These 3 months that we are the same age are my favorite months of the year!! Bry? Not so much... he'd rather be 29!

***

Last April we celebrated my 30th birthday in Cabo, so following suit, we'll be truly celebrating Bryan's birthday here:


Happy Birthday babe! 30 never looked as good as it does on you!!

***

So I asked Bry what I should title his 30th birthday blog post and without hesitation he laughed and said "dooms day." And we all know that what a birthday boy wants, a birthday boy gets!
