My 30th is tomorrow, and I'm going to the symphony. Sounded like a "grown up" way to celebrate (ha ha), and I have never been. My friends are joing us for dinner, and a few are even coming along to the symphony. And I guess I have good birthday luck, because my tickets got a complimentary upgrade! I'm excited to celebrate tomorrow. Happy birthday to you!

We have the same birthday... I too am turning 30 on Nov. 3... How funny you should ask.... My husband has planned the whole day for me so I don't know. on Friday I going out to eat with all my family. If it were up to me I would have prefer to take a short trip to Austin with my husband or my best friend and party away.

I threw myself a big party. Had it in my house, invited everyone I knew. My sister came from Jersey to help me with it. Huge hit and I forgot all about how depressed I was about turning 30 because I had so much fun. It was great!!

It was not my 30th but my last birthday I really treat myself. I spent the day at a very nice SPA: massage, body scrub, lunch, manicure, pedicure and facial with two friends while my husband took care of my baby!!! After having a baby and really not time for taking care/time for "just ME" that was heaven!!!

At night he got me a babysitter and invited me for dinner to nice restaurant with some friends and after dinner we all went to have a drink. We have not gone to a bar since we got married!

I love parties and always have friends at my place but on my birthday the last thing I wanted was to lift a finger!

I'll do the SPA thing again and again and again!

My 30th was a week ago today. My whole family took me to Bucca de Beco in Southlake and it was yummy! My hubby and I are taking a trip next month as a combined birthday gift to each other since he will be 40 in a couple of months. (I know, older man! :) :) :) )

I turned 30 before I had my one and only daughter so hubby and I went out to eat at Del Friscos. It was very special because we were just getting on our feet and had only been in TX a couple of years.

I remember at 40 I was SO depressed. Hubby surprised me with a little red convertible. That was a hit. I LOVED it. I still have the car and every now and then I take it out and have fun!

At 45, even more depressing, I came home from errands and had a new sports luxury car waiting on me. I officially stopped driving the soccer mom van and the convertible for the most part. They stay in the garage now.

Enjoy your day!! Enjoy getting carded too! I love it when that happens, yes, it still happens!

Wow, you'r birthday is my daughter's birthday too.. cool.

Well, I turned 30 last year... And I thought about it too much and endend up doing nothing.. so you better do somehting before you regret it.. lol.
I was a little depressed about not having my friends around. I'm from NJ, and so being new to HOuston, and having a job that at that time demanded me to be there on my day.. I felt trapped.. anyhow.. my 31st is gona be my 30th.. lol. I'm already prentending I'm younger.. oh boy. anyhow, Good luck with your plans..
But if I were to go back to my day, I would have taken the whole week off, and gone to were my friends were at... just to have a girls night out... No one can understand you better than your girl friends, or if you have a sister who you really relate to.. go out with her, and if possible go to another country to make it more memorable... just a thought. But I would defiantely suggest doing something memorable! Good luck and have fun!
