I had to share a few photos from my sister's 30 birthday this past weekend! We helped her throw a theme party on Saturday night, and you know there are few things in life I love than a theme party.

SO the theme was: 13 Going on 30! Isn't that genius? I can't take credit, it was her idea. This involved: dressing like we did when we were 13 (OR when Carina was 13, in 2002, jury is still out), instant messenger screen name nametags, Capri Sun cocktails, lots of vintage school photos, flip phones that my mom had in our garage (? that garage is a GOLDMINE of Livestrong bracelets and middle school yearbooks and loads of other treasues) chokers/butterfly clips, and my crowning glory: this playlist

My other contributions were: the "photobooth" [Target plastic tableclothes, pro tip!] and a paper banner of course that didn't make it into any of these photos. 

Let's unpack my outfit a little bit? I felt 100% authentically 13 year old Pri: half-bun (so I only had to straighten half my hair), Fall Out Boy t-shirt (actually mine from the early '00s, found this in the garage), a bracelet/necklace stack, a cut-off denim mini skirt, and green tennis shoes. OH and the only make-up I wore was: glitter lip gloss, lots of blush, silver/cream/light eyeshadow all over, a coat of mascara, and lots of eyeliner/smudged mascara under the eye. That's what physically pained me walking over to the party. 

The Polaroids are ripped straight from my Insta (that I'm posting on again, I guess? It's just so STRESSFUL idk how you guys do it) and includes my twin brothers that I am obsessed with who were there in full force. 

And I had to include one photo from the streets of SF because I LOVE SAN FRANCISCO so much ! What is better than meandering to and from the Caltrain station on a sunny day? Nothing! 

But seriously, the party/entire weekend was so fun, I am still recovering (I slept pretty much the entire way back, which is a big deal for me since I can NEVER sleep on planes. I'm not bragging, it sucks) & I have been super bummed since leaving all my sibs & the Golden State :( I just love the Bay Area & my family so much! And Art who was an MVP, even while I was in my "blackout party planning mode." HBD Little Peanut!!
