I'm 30!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's official. Today, I am 30!

Surprisingly, I feel fine. I thought I'd end up freaking out, but here I am, happy. I think I have felt 30 for quite some time to be honest with you. I had kids early, bought houses early, heck, I've lived a very full life so far. I think I'm ready to retire to Arizona and start a quilting group!

So, I close the chapter on my 20's, a season of pregnancies, babies, hubby building career, etc. I definitely feel more mature, more in tune with God, and would you beleive it... more adventurous!

God willing, what will the 30's bring???

*I wannna see God MOVE. Not just in mine and my families lives, but in the lives around me!

*I want to continue to make good health a priority.

*I want to travel more.

*I want to successfully parent adolescents. By the time I'm 37, I'll have 4 of them in the house!!!!

*I want bring my relationship with my husband out of our typical "Mommy and Daddy" role, back into something with more personal identity. More sex. (Yup, I said it, but after a whole decade of pregnancies and babies, I'm excited to enter a new phase in our relationship.)

*Financial Freedom. No mortgages... NOTHING

Who knows where God will take me, but I'm excited for the ride!

Oh, check out my birthday present to myself .... New highlights! We are doing a party at my mom's house this weekend, but tonight, red wine and strawberries with a bunch of friends... does it get better than that????

Happy Birthday... I love the highlights and OF COURSE you've still got it! My dh told me that the other day when some guy at the dump decided to flirt with me... but in my case, I am 37... closer to 40! And 40 lbs. overweight, but apparently I've still got it! (whatever "IT" is????) LOL!
