Yesterday, I turned 30! CRAZY!!! So I thought it was going to feel like a big deal... but it wasn't. Now that I'm out of my 20's, I'm going to embrace the fact that I'm getting older. Because getting older, you get wiser... right? Right.
I really have so many things to be thankful for. I feel so blessed to have the life that I have. It hasn't always been easy, and its had quite a few ups and downs, but its made me the person I am today and I love who I am. I'm just only going to improve as a person from here. At least I'm determined to. So... that's what I have to say about turning 30. It's not bad at all! :)
First of all, my hubby wasn't here for my birthday. He's accepted a position working for the King County Transportation in Seattle, WA. He will be working on the electrical side of the Light Rail. So he has gone on ahead of us, trying to find a house for us to live in while I hang with our stuff in Montana until further ado. I'm sure I'll keep you updated on the move. But we are very excited to be going back to Washington. We miss the green!
My big day started out interesting. My Aubri is so sweet to me. She sang me happy birthday first thing in the morning and insisted that I make myself a birthday cake so I can make a wish and blow out my candles. Well, Aubs really likes electrical tape and she wrapped the pole by the stair case with it. So I took a knife and was trying to get it off and sliced right through my finger! Ouch! The cut was so deep I was trying to determine whether or not I needed stitches. But, I opted to stick a bandaid on it and go about my day.
So, I made myself a birthday cake and Aubri had fun decorating it for me. Isn't it pretty??? hee hee!
Here's the view from the top. It happens to be the prettiest part of the whole cake. She was VERY serious when adding the sprinkles. If you look really hard, you might be able to make out some kind of animal. Ha ha! I love my Aubs!
While I was watching Aubri decorate my cake, my little man pulled a whole container of cornmeal out of my baking cupboard (whoops!). He had a blast grabbing handfuls and throwing it all over! Thank goodness for my Dyson!
And because I really like to train my kids young... they were kind enough to wash the dishes for me on my special day.
My night concluded having dinner and games with a group of women I'm friends with here in Glasgow. One of my favorite games we played was Apples to Apples and I NEVER win. I always play the silly cards. But somehow I ended up winning! Go me! It was so much fun and we all had a great time laughing and sharing funny stories! I'm really going to miss them! Most of them don't know about my blog, but thank you Connie, Melissa, Meghan, Leta and Kathy! Melissa made me the cake below. It was so pretty and delicious!
Overall, I had a great day! I get to celebrate with my Hubby later, but my kiddos made me feel really special! I'm one blessed Mommy! How could I not have a great day with all the love I get?! I love my kids so much! ( The below pic I took with them to remember my day. I'm starting to embrace my crooked smile. It's taken me 30 years... but now I realize its part of what makes me, ME.)
