It was like I blinked and all of a sudden I'm graduated from college, married and 30! Wow. Its been a whirlwind, but definitely a fun ride. I turned 30 on Thursday and much to my dismay, I couldn't stop the dreaded number from approaching.
30 has always been that age in my head that means you are "really" grown up. I guess I finally have to consider myself an adult (but, I'm really just a big kid). I remember being a little kid thinking people that are 30 ARE OLD!! They work and have kids and are no fun. However, now that I am 30, there is no way that 30 is old! Its the new 20 :) I'm still fun (so I think), I don't have kids (by choice) and live a great life. There is still SO MUCH ahead of me. I've decided to adopt the motto "thirty, flirty and fabulous"!! Some of you may recognize this a line from the movie "13 Going on 30" - LOL. Will doesn't like the "flirty" part - hehe.
But, in CF world - 30 is a senior citizen!! I've approached the decade of the dreaded average life expectancy. But, I look at it as a challenge. My goal is to make that life expectancy increase! I'm planning to be here until I'm old and gray.
Back to happier thoughts. I want to brag a bit on my wonderful husband. He completely blew me away with gorgeous diamond earrings and a surprise party to ring in my 30th. I had a wonderful evening with some of my closest friends...I definitely won't be forgetting that party any time soon.
|My awesome cake - it was DELICIOUS!!!!|
|Me and my girls :)|
|Me and the hubs....don't mind the frizzy hair - it was raining :(|
Also, this past week, my baby brother graduated high school...guess he really isn't a baby anymore. It was a very proud moment for me as a big sister. Being 11 years older then him, its like he's part mine too - I like to think I helped mold him just a bit. I'm so proud that he graduated with honors and will be headed off to the University of South Carolina in the fall. Go Gamecocks!!

So, this weekend was a weekend of milestones. It is definitely a time to reflect on how blessed I am...I have my family, my friends, my precious bulldogs and even my health. So here's to 30 more!!!
Happy Birthday cyster :) To many many many more!ReplyDelete
