Thirty Until Thirty

Not that I really want to get an official countdown going, but I just thought it was fun to think that in THIRTY days I will turn THIRTY years old! This has been a really fun year for myself and a bunch of good girlfriends because we're all turning thirty within months of each other (it's like watching dominoes fall and knock each other down one by one... "Oh, there goes another one"!).
I wonder how to spend the next 30 days while I'm still in my "twenties"??

So that makes me the next domino, doesn't it? Two days and counting - yikes! I love reading your blog, by the way. It was great to see the pictures of your parents, I miss them! Tell them I said hello and I send them both my love.

I think it was the anticipation of the actual date that had me freaking out a bit. When the date finally did arrive, I felt like a weight had been lifted and it seemed something to celebrate. It's only been getting better since. I'm so thankful for all of you to "grow young" with. With Love, Chrissy

I remember turning "30". I always enjoyed the "Thirty Somethings". I felt like I had earned my place in the ranks of womanhood. Older than a teen, wiser than my twenties, and not old enough to be considered out-dated. The journey of life continues--enjoy every minute of it. You look fantastic! You inherited Grandma Crehan's wonderful skin tone. Hopefully, you will also inherit her dark hair, free from white straglers until a ripe old age of 60. Love your Momma

i am so happy that everyone is turning thirty. remember, i have been sitting at thirty since last august. i have always been the first domino to fall. but that also makes me the wisest (hee hee). ok that was proven false many times, (no need for comments). i tried very hard to avoid my birthday, the anti-celebration of turning thirty. i think that getting together with girlfriends and going out was a much better way to spend the day. thank you to all my girls for that wonderful night we spent when chrissy celebrated her bday. and i have to agree with her, you just have to get past the actual day and then all is fine. what i am not ok with is my son turning five. that won't happen until september, but i cannot believe that my son, my baby, is going to turn five. how is it possible that he has been on this earth for five years? that i have been a mother that long, and yet... that it has all gone by so quickly. that is what makes me crazy. happy early birthday jessica (tomorrow) and jill (soon enough). love you. jessica

Well... my comment to all this thirty shmirty stuff is I refuse to equate us falling and turning thirty. I'm sure you all will have to cheer me up on my big day but right know i would like to quote Jennifer Garner in the movie 13 going on 30 and say we are "thirty,flirty and thriving!" (also, not a bad movie to rent) Jessica,Jill do something fabulous and fun on your birthday and don't forget to add some glitter:) Love to all and Happy Birthday to Everyone!
