Kerry Rings In The Big 3-0 In Style

I had the best weekend celebrating my friend Kerry's 30th birthday in Greenville, South Carolina.  Greenville is such a special city -- it truly has my heart.  Not only is it the city where I spent my beloved four college years at Furman, but it's also just a truly fun place.  Everyone who visits falls instantly in love... at least, I think so.  :)

We started Saturday evening by opening a bottle of champagne while getting ready.


Kerry's boyfriend Will was our photographer, living room DJ, and chauffeur ... and he was, along with our friend Kate, the co-planner extraordinaire for this fabulous fete!



We headed to Lazy Goat, where I'd just been the weekend prior for my sister Laura's wedding, and had a great dinner and a very special cake for the birthday girl.

Sidenote: the sweet potato cake from Brickstreet Cafe is ... how do I put this ... LIFE-CHANGING.




I had so many fun girlfriends there, and we all chatted and danced the night away.


The current Miss South Carolina crowned the birthday girl with her tiara.



After a long night of chapagne sippin' and dancing in stilettos, we got back to Kerry's condo and absolutely crashed. 


Kerry's boyfriend came over the next morning with a very important delivery -- our first Pumpkin Spice Lattes of the season.  With the chilly morning air coming in through Kerry's patio doors, it was the perfect setting to justify this Fall favorite. 

Ker, so incredibly happy to spend your 30th with you, and cheers to a fabulous year ahead!
