I turn 30 tomorrow. I’m happy. At 25 (and 26, 27, 28, 29) I dreaded the big Three Oh. Since the beginning of the year I’ve welcomed it. I guess it’s because I’m comfortable where I am now….not feeling like I need to have x, y, and z accomplished before 30. (Despite that 30 before 30 list hahah…which I totally failed btw…)
When I was younger, I was certain I’d have my husband, house, kids, have travelled the world, and won an oscar (or at least a daytime emmy) by the old age of 30. My 18 year old self would so hate my 30 year old self, all boring, never partying, barely shopping, being a house mouse, reading stuff all the time. It’s amazing how much we change….even just year to year.
Is it cheesy to say that I think 30 is going to be my best year yet? Well, I do. In fact I’m certain of it.
I read a guest post on optimistic mom’s blog that said the 20s are pre-adulthood, the same way you have the pre-teen years. I like to think I was an adult earlier than tomorrow though! 30 does feel more “grown up” though. There’s something about this milestone that just feels…special. Worth celebrating.
I guess that’s why I’m actually having a lil bday celebration tomorrow. Gunna head to one of my fave sushi spots for dinner with my family, and then go to a lounge for some drinks and dancing (if it’s that kinda place…I’ve never been) with some friends. Oh, and I’m wearing the cutest dress ever. Remember when I asked you for dress shopping help? (Thanks by the way for the suggestions girls!) Well, I ended up buying 4 dresses (i know, i know) but I’m returning 2. I haven’t decided which I’ll be wearing but it’s down to 2 finalists…I’ll post pics later (I’m at work pretending to be busy right now)
It’s one of my oldest and bestest friend’s birthday tomorrow too! (Hi Bug!) Can’t believe I’ve known and loved this girl for *gulp* 18 years. OK….saying I’m 30 doesn’t make me feel old, but saying I’ve known her for that long certainly does. Jeez. One of my other oldest friends turns 30 on the 19th. Gotta love the virgo connection. Speaking of which, one of my cousins turned 30 on wednesday, another turned 29 on monday, and my dad’s birthday is the 16th. I looked on facebook and found that 7 other poeple in my friends list share my birthday!
Um….I just realized this post is one long ramble….and I’m publishing it just as it is.
Have a great weekend gurls. Happy Bday to all the virgos!!
