To say Atlantic City was fun would be an understatement. I have the most amazing friends and am so glad that we were all able to get out of town for one night and celebrate together. We started the evening out with some wine and snacks in the hotel. My friend Jody did the best job picking out goodies for us to enjoy – brie and goat cheese, sliced apples, fig spread! It was the perfect way to start the evening.

When we arrived into our adjoining rooms (best thing ever!) I had a surprise from my friend Amanda – treats and champagne!!! She also surprised me with cupcakes at work and really went above and beyond to make my 30th so special.

Surprise treats!

After we primped we headed out for dinner at Buddakan. I had been to the one in New York City years ago and remembered how good it was and was happy to go back. We did their $60/person pre-fixe menu and it was a ton of food and absolutely delicious. I only took a picture of the giant Cesar salad we had but the rest of the food was so good and we were stuffed. My favorite dish was the filet combined with the wasabi mashed potatoes. Yum!

So much salad!

After dinner we went to The Borgata for some gambling and dancing at mur.mur. It was a very Jersey experience so naturally I loved it! While the club was heavy on the smoke machine, the DJ did a great job of keeping everyone dancing and I really enjoyed people watching…a lot. After getting our fill of the casino we went back to our hotel to call it a night. It was really a great way to celebrate my birthday and I am so grateful my friends were able to come out and celebrate with me. They were all insanely generous and I am so lucky to have all of them in my life.

Before I post some party pictures, I also want to post some pictures from all the wonderful gifts I received on my actual birthday because they were seriously so generous.

THANK YOU ADDY & JUSTIN!

The next morning a few of us had lunch at a Mexican restaurant and quickly stopped by the outlets for a little shopping before hitting the road back to D.C. Naturally, I rented a dress for the occasion and it was another winner. I chose the Trina Turk Zig Zag dress and I loved it – super comfortable!

Overall it was truly a wonderful birthday and a great trip. Thank you to everyone who made it so wonderful!!
