Happy Birthday

Wow

Turning 30 on the 30th.

I always thought it would be a big deal. I don't feel any different today than I did yesterday. Or this time last year.

My dear girlfriends threw a surprise birthday party Saturday evening for me. Of course I didn't have my camera so there is no evidence of the pink-from-champagne cheeks or the I'm-so-shocked-I'm-giggling face. But trust me--it was a blast and a total surprise.

M had flowers (yellow roses) waiting for me at school when I picked her up this afternoon. I'm pretty sure H had something to do with that, but there is no evidence.

I'm hoping that H will deliver the much desired knitting classes from the local yarn store. He's got dinner waiting downstairs, so we'll see. I'll have to let you know later what surprises he has in store.

So, thirty is really no different than 29 and probably no different than 31. But it's always fun to have a special day to celebrate.

Happy, happy, happy 30th! No, it doesn't really feel different yet. Maybe when we turn 40?! It is a special one though...I felt like a real grown up sort of- to be able to say, "I'm thirty." Sounds foreign to your ears, doesn't it? I hope you get nice surprises from H...after all of that lingerie, I bet he's got special plans for you. LOL. Much love, my friend. The party was a blast...you are too fun to surprise! Happy birthday, Andi

Belated congratulations and happy birthday!!!! Surprise parties are the BEST!!! Shame there are no pix. I remember when I turned 30 saying to my Mum, "Now I have to write a 3 at the beginning of my age!!! Weird!"
"Just wait til you have to write a 5," she wryly replied!!! :-) Its getting close now! eugh...
I am so behind in my blog reading AND my schoolwork! Will now go and catch up and see if you got your knitting classes!
