The Big 3-0

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.

  1. You look AMAZING! What are you worried about? When I turned 30 I had no kids and made Kevin take me out of town for the weekend so I could hide from anyone who might know it was my birthday. Your celebration sounds much more fun! Happy Birthday!
