    Pssssst. I’m not 30 today!

    Today is my birthday. I’m turning not 30!
    I’m not trying to be facetious, I’m really not 30…. yet. I won’t be able to say this for too long, so I’m enjoying what I’ve got left.

    When I turned 20, it was a big deal (to me). I looked at the decade ahead and thought “In the next 10 years I will graduate college, begin working, most likely get married, and maybe even have a child.” So here I am, looking back on that thought, going “Holy cow these last 10 years went by fast!”

    I remember when my mom turned 30. Although I was very young, I have memories of it: it was very low key, and I remember thinking then that being an adult was no fun: you didn’t get any birthday parties, there was no cake in sight, and you certainly didn’t get any fun toys… or at least anything that I would consider fun at the time.

    And now I get it. I’ve spent all week-end with my family and it’s been a fantastic time. I’ve eaten food I haven’t had in a long time, I’ve been spoiled rotten by my mom and I’ve done little beyond being a couch potato. It’s been heaven! And at the off question of “What would you like for your birthday?” I’ve been very content to say that I have everything I could ask for right now. The only thing that I wish for is a healthy child growing inside me. That is all! (Although, with that said I did get some awesome loot today too ;p)

    This will also be my last birthday without being a mommy. It’s a little strange to think so. At my next birthday S will be trying to keep 2 sets of hands away from frosting: mine and our child’s.

    “Not 30″ frosting

    Aaaaah, I pity the man!

      Happy birthday! I found that when I turned 29 I started to stress a little about turning 30… but by the time I actually did, I was over it. I’d already processed all the angst. 😉

      Sounds like it was great!

      happy Ava day to you! I had no idea you are a February girl too? (I am 2/22).
      The time does fly doesn’t it? 30 was hard for me, 31 was a walk in the park. But I swear I have done my darndest to just ignore this one coming up… sigh.
      Anyway, wishing you all the best and hope your cake was phenomenal!!
      Happy Day!
