Ugh...tomorrow is my birthday. It's a big one. I've been a little depressed about it for some reason. A part of me is like, "age is just a number". Another part of me is like, "HOLY CRAP, I'M OFFICIALLY AN ADULT!!!" Most people assume that I have already passed this milestone. I'm assuming it's because I have 100 kids. I feel like it's because I look older than I am...hence the depression. Regardless of my age, I'm thankful for another year. I'm thankful to live in the house of my dreams, with the husband of my dreams and a boatload of healthy kids running around. I'm thankful that I have a job that I love that allows me to work part time so I can enjoy being a Momma to my boatload of kids. I'm thankful that the Hubby is much older than me. That makes me feel a little better. I look forward to the next decade. I look forward to raising these little blessings and growing stronger in my walk with Jesus Christ. I look forward to celebrating more anniversary's with the Hubby and growing old together. I look forward to the day that I can afford my Mommy makeover and some botox.
The only thing I wanted for my birthday was a day by myself to go shopping. Today was that day and it was FABULOUS. The poor Hubby didn't feel well and had to deal with a screaming baby all day, but he never complained. I went to my favorite mall with my favorite latte in hand. I took my time going to all my favorite stores just browsing...and buying. I had my first experience at the Dry Bar and it was amazing! When I first got to the mall I went straight to Origins to pick up a couple of my favorite items. There was this overly nice guy helping me. I might have mentioned that I felt like I was looking old. He might have scooped me away to the back and gave me an anti-aging facial. I bought everything he put on my face. I'm such a sucker like that. Let's hope it works and erases 5 years off because then I won't be depressed about my big birthday anymore.
