In less than 6 months, I will be turning 30
I want to do something fun and different to commemorate entering into my third decade of life. I'm not a huge birthdaypalooza person. Meaning, I celebrate my birthday with maybe a nice dinner out or my fave homecooked dinner and cake. I'm not really a huge "go out and celebrate" person.
With that said, I do want to "go out and celebrate" this special birthday. I feel like doing something out of the norm and a kind of special. With my birthday being in January, I have to start planning things early because there is no time to plan after Christmas is over ANNNNDDD because I'm a planner and can't stand to do things last minute.
Here are some ideas I've been toying with.
1. Glamour City
Some friends and fam get dressed up and go into uptown Charlotte for drinks, appetizers and maybe fondue...one of my absolute favorites.
2. Petting Zoo
This has been a lifelong dream ever since I saw it on Mrs. Doubtfire. I want to have a petting zoo at my birthday party...however...having a birthday in January usually poses a problem.
I envision this to be something along the lines of pottery painting, jewelry making or maybe a cooking/pastry class session. IDK. Something fun and out of the ordinary.
Something along the lines of a jewelry, clothing or makeup party that is hosted by a particular company (like Mary Kay, Stella and Dot, Pampered Chef, etc.). Do this up with apps and drinks but keep it at the house.
Somewhere I've not been like Vegas, NYC or maybe out west somewhere. Cali?? Seattle? Explore more places in TX? There are so many options! This is obviously the most expensive route.
Those of you that have already had a 30th birthday, did you do anything special to celebrate it? Or did you just do a normal birthday thing? Please share...I'd love to know! :)
