30 and Counting

Well, you guessed it. Today I turned 30 years old. I know that is not old by any means but to someone who has lived the last ten years in the 20's it's a big awakening. I am no longer a twenty year old, I am now a thirty year old. But then I look back at the past 30 years and realized what I have accomplished. I graduated from college, married a wonderful man, have a great job, and have three beautiful girls that I love very much. My life has been filled with wonderful things and opportunities. I wouldn't change it for the world.
This is how my day went:
I woke up early to get Kenna off to school. Today was "crazy hair day" so I had to fix her hair. She was so excited about that it was all she could think about.

Of course then Kambry had to have "crazy hair" too. And Aislynn was just happy to sit there and look pretty.

After getting Kenna off to school I got ready to meet my friend and go dress shopping for a ball gown for the Marine Corps Ball coming up soon. We looked and looked and didn't have any luck at all. Later on in the evening we all went out to dinner at the Olive Garden and it was very yummy as usual. When we got home we had a delicious cake my hubby got me from a cake shop in town. It had raspberry filling and was so good. I even had an extra piece. It was a good day, other than the fact that I still have this yucky cold. That's right, as soon as I was over the stomach bug I got a cold and it's just no fun being sick. I am ready to be better again, to breathe normally and feel like doing more during the day. I guess this weekend when I am alone with the girls because my husband will being running the Marine Corps Marathon I can try to get back into the swing of things. Until next time...

Happy birthday! glad that you had a good day. I am sorry that you had a bit of a hard time turning 30. My brother turned 30 last month and had a really hard time with it too. I of course made fun of him but I won't do that to you!! I love how you said what you accomplished in the past 30 years. It is nice to reflect on all the good things!
