Today, I officially turn 30 (Happy Birthday to me). :} It's funny, when I was younger, 30 sounded so old. I was sure it would be the end of everything fun, because of course, you can only have fun when you're young, right?
Now, 30 doesn't seem very old at all. :) The weird thing is, mentally, I still feel like I'm in the 21-23 age category. I've heard older family members talking about the fact that as you age, you still feel young, and now I know what they mean. It still startles me to have to go to the third age bracket in surveys. :}
Anyway, I'm actually okay with being 3 decades old. In fact, I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for me in the years to come. :)
So, some of you may be wondering what I'm doing for my birthday, especially since it's such a big milestone. Well, last weekend, we had a family party. My mom's birthday is the 21st, and my sister-in-law's birthday (my brother's wife) is the 24th, so we always have a 3-way birthday in September to celebrate. That was really fun. Today, my hubby will most likely be working late, so I don't know that there will be much of an official celebration. But on Friday and Saturday, hubby is watching all 3 of the girls, and I'm having an old fashioned slumber party with some of my friends at my aunt's house. We're going to eat ricotta cheesecake (I'll let you know if it's any good after the weekend), make personal pizzas, watch movies, play bingo, and just have a great time together. No kids are going to be there, so we'll get to act like kids ourselves...and actually have some uninterrupted, adult conversation. Yay!! :D
I was thinking about taking a trip for my birthday, but it was going to be too expensive. Plus, I'm going to my church's Ladies Retreat next month, so I'll have a special trip then. I think this will be really fun. And really, a slumber party fits with my "Never Grow Up" mentality anyway. ;) My mom and aunt will be hosting the party, and there should be about 7 guests that are able to come, besides me. :) I'll be sure to let you guys know how it turns out. :)
Well, I'm off to fix breakfast for the girls and get them to school. Later today I'll do an update on Kaitlin's hair. It dried a little poofier than I'd hoped, but it's still way better than it was! :) Talk to you all soon!
