Cameron's 30th Birthday Bash.


Last Friday was Cameron's 30th birthday. Yes, I failed to post one of those sappy birthday posts. Truth is, I had the day off and I was running around town like a crazy person getting errands done. 

Cameron definitely celebrated his 30th birthday right. 

Friday night, his parents took us out to dinner to Magnolia's. We started with the pimento cheese, which was amazing. I ordered the shellfish over grits, which had scallops, shrimp, and lobster over creamy grits topped with lobster sauce and crispy spinach. Sorry for making your mouth water so early in the morning.

Saturday was the big party day! His mom and I had been planning the party for about 2 months, so we were very excited it was finally here. It was not a surprise party, but I left a big detail out when I told him about it - the Baja Burrito food truck! Hiring a food truck was the best idea - they do all of the work! The food was amazing and I heard so many compliments. I got to pick 4 burritos and 4 tacos to put on the menu. Guests got to pick either 1 burrito or 3 tacos. The burritos were HUGE - Cameron's stepdad weighed his and it weighed a pound and a half!


The California was on point with the carne asada, guac, cheese, salsa verde, and french fries all rolled into one massive burrito.

If you've never tried the Kirkland brand margaritas from Costco, please do. I had so many people asking me if I made the margaritas myself. Best part? They're only $10 a handle!

On Sunday, we went to Summerville to celebrate all 5 June birthdays in our family. 
Sister's boyfriend, sister, Cameron, mom,  and Grandaddy Smitty
We stuffed ourselves with blue cheese burgers, pasta salad, homemade peach ice cream, and a burger cake!





Needless to say, my diet started yesterday today.
Hope you had a great birthday, Cameron!

  9. You did his birthday right for sure! The food truck idea is genius...did you pay to rent it out? And I wonder if it could work for a family reunion...that way I have to do nothing...other than drinks which are easy.
