Thirty + 1

Today is my 31st birthday. Yes, today I turned 31. 31 years old today. Did you catch that I'm turning 31? I am officially 30-something. I can no longer say I "just turned 30". Nope, I've passed the point of no return. And, really, it's not all that bad. I've got 2 great kids, a great husband, and I'm blessed to be able to do something that I never thought I would: be a stay-at-home mom. Life is pretty good.

And I got a kickin' cake...Check this out...

Yes, that is supposed to be me, but let me clarify a couple of things. First, if the sun shone for 24 hours a day all summer long and I baked out in it continuously, I would not be that dark. Second, I will not after giving birth to 2 children, ever be in a bikini again. So, thank you, Betsy, for not putting a beached white whale on top on my oh-so-delicious carrot cake. I very much like to live in that fantasy world where I am bronzed and bikini-ready.


  1. I am so glad that I am not the only one who has issues with being a 30-something instead of being just 30. At least I have another week before that happens. Happy Birthday!

  2. Oh man -- that *is* a cute cake!

    Happy belated birthday!


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
