The BIG 3-0

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!!

Taylor and me
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!!!
