Boudreaux's 30th Birthday Bar Crawl

You only get one 30th birthday, and even though Brad and I swore to each other we weren't celebrating birthdays or Christmas this year, I didn't have it in me to downplay his 30th.

The concept for Boudreaux's 30th Birthday Bar Crawl (also known as The Hangover Part III) came about in early April, and with the help of some pretty great folks, the idea begin to take life. Before we knew it, August 20th was upon us.


Brad's actual birthday is the 19th, and he started his weekend off right with a date with the Saints! A part of his birthday gift from my parent's was a ticket to the 44th Annual Meet the Saints Luncheon. Not only did he get to meet all the different players and be in the same room with the one and only Drew Brees, Lance Moore signed his jersey and included an extra "Happy Birthday" note. It was definitely a birthday to remember.

Just when he thought his birthday was over... 8.20.11

Invitations, designed by Amy Martin: my very own personal designer (told you she wears many hats), set the stage for Boudreaux's 30th Birthday Bar Crawl and were mailed in mid-July. As the guests would infer from the invite, this was a surprise party. The bar crawl would begin at Leo's and we'd visit five more bars along the route. T-shirts were ordered and distributed to guests before the crawl.

Many thanks go out to Amy Martin for her design work and for being one of the best friends anyone could ever ask for, Twisted Pixel Graphics for printing the T-shirts and for their top-notch customer service, Cindy Ladnier, for creating the best damn bar crawl cake downtown Ocean Springs has ever seen, and last but not least, everyone who came out to celebrate Boudreaux's 30th Birthday Bar Crawl!

Until next year...
