Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving!!

I thought about this day for a whole year and it finally came...

Yesterday was my 30th birthday! I can't even believe it!

I thought I was fine about it...
I went for a dark early morning run and listened to songs like Tim McGraw's, My Next Thirty Years and Jay-Z's, Thirtysomething (I'm sure he would be embarassed if he knew I had his song on my ipod)... I was feeling good about thirty...
until my sister-in-law, Karen, called me and told me how she felt strange on her 30th....then I burst into tears and told her that yes, it does feel a little strange turning that first digit...and not quite as happy and exciting as it did when it went from a one to a two...She told me when she turned 30 that she wanted to act immature so she told me to go out and buy the shiny leggings I've been looking at that I thought might be too young for me...


I didn't buy the leggings...
But Joey did get me an iphone that makes me feel very youthful...
The day was great...went to my favorite place (Disney) with my favorite peeps (Joey & kids...had to say peeps because that's what young people do) and I ate my little heart out at Epcots Food & Wine Festival...
Thanks for all the calls and texts to help me celebrate!!

Happy Birthday!! I turned 30 this year too and it is just weird because I still feel 20. Just be happy you are a hot 30, that has to be a comfort.
You are awesome and you can totally rock 30!!
