I'm Turning 30

Tomorrow, I am turning 30. I know it's not really a big deal, but I guess I am a little bit sad to leave my 20s. I have had some of my best years in my 20s and I'm hoping for even better ones in my 30s. Looking back, I thought of 29 things I did in my 29th year. Here it is in no particular order:

1) Joined a gym
2) Survived another year of Girls Camp
3) Made new friends
4) Tasted guacamole (didn't like it)
5) Refinished our dining room table
6) Broke 3 cell phones (technically Sara did, but it was my fault for letting her play w/ it)
7) Went home to Tulsa and loved it!
8) Started a new blog
9) Bought designer jeans (at a fraction of the regular price, but still way too expensive)
10) Lost a baby
11) Played on a volleyball team
12) Watched way, way too much reality TV
13) Read some incredible books
14) Hosted a really fun GNO
15) Sewed a new skirt for myself
16) Had surgery
17) Spent many many hours at the park with my treasure girl, Sara
18) Got my eye brows waxed (yes, my first time ever)
19) Missed my Mom and Dad in Chile
20) Fell off the step in Body Step at the gym
21) Had 2 black toenails, one of which had to be removed
22) Painted the bathroom
23) Let Cameron watch a ridiculous amount of football
24) Shopped at thrift stores - and got some really cool stuff
25) Made lots of yummy cookies and ate many of them
26) Drove to Utah with my cousin
27) Finally found something to clear up my skin
28) Danced to the "Single Ladies" video countless time with Sara
29) Started working on my family history

There are many things I'm looking forward to in the next year. So here's to the last day in my 20s. Cheers!

Happy Birthday! One of my friends, who is 33, said that turning thirty was a liberating time for her. She felt that she could finally be her own person. I have to agree!

Here's to turning thirty!

Happy birthday, Karen!

Don't tell me that was the first time you've ever tried guacamole. How is that possible? I understand not liking it, but you made it 29 years without even trying it?! What is it? The color? The goopey appearance? I'm dying here. :)

I know I had other things to tell you but I'm totally shocked about this guacamole thing.

Don't worry, we can still be friends.

Happy birthday!

P.S. In an effort to declutter my house I found a bunch of pictures and letters and stuff from you. Some of it was rather incriminating and made me miss you a bunch. Vermont was fun. You were an awesome companion; sorry if I was a pain in your butt. Now this comment is officially TOO LONG.

Happy birthday again.
