O "CRAPS" I'm 30!!!!

On my actual birthday I had a meeting all morning and then drove home from Indian Wells.  I didn't get home until almost 7 pm.  So I just pretended that wasn't my birthday because it totally sucked.  On Sunday Kevin and Emily set up a 30 point scavenger hunt for me.  Each spot had a clue leading to the next spot.  It was really cute and it was so much fun doing it with Emily.  At the end I had an envelope with cash so that I could pick out my birthday gift.

The next weekend Kevin and I threw ourselves a 30th birthday party with a Vegas/Casino Night theme.  We didn't get to celebrate Kevin's birthday back in October so we decided to have a joint bash.

When our guests arrived they received play cash to cash in for chips when the gaming started and an index card with a word on it.  If they heard that word said at any time during the night they were supposed to go to that person and say, "TABOO," and that person had to drink.

We had a bar and appetizers for everyone to enjoy until the Taco Truck arrived at 7:30.  There were tacos, burritos, quesadillas and more.  At 8:00 the dealers arrived and we played craps and blackjack for most of the night.  At the end of the gaming we had a live auction for 5 prizes.  The highest bidders (guests used their winnings from the night) got the prizes.  When you were bidding you didn't know what you were bidding on.  Some prizes were funny and "winning" prizes were lotto tickets.
It wouldn't be a party without some flip cup so after our auction we played girls vs. boys Survivor Flip Cup.  The girls won of course!!!  We finished the night with a little dancing.

Thank you to all who came to celebrate with us.  It means the world to us to have such wonderful family and friends.  You made the night extra special and fun. 
Also thank you so much to my mom for helping put on the party and being the best hostess thru the night!
