Damn! I'm old!

This is my "Holy Shit! I'm old" blog!

For those are new to my birthday was yesterday, August 1st. And every year I do a reflective blog about the past year and what I'm excited about for the next year and beyond.

I turned 30 this year. I don't feel different but I kind of do. I know it's just another birthday, another year older but something about 30 just hit me weird. Not a bad weird but like WOW! I'm not longer a 20something. I'm a "grown up"...maybe...kind of...sort of...not really. I don't know it just feels weird. Like the plan I had in my head didn't pan out...not that I'm complaining because I definitely LOVE the route my life has taken but I'm still like "Whoa, I kind of figured I would have a kid, a job, a house, and all that crap."
But instead I have my health, a wonderful and supportive husband, and a direction towards my dream. So I honestly rather have what I have. All that other stuff will come in time and I'm just enjoying what I've been given now. And I don't know if anyone else went through a similar form of thinking. I thought my life would be this but instead it's this. Maybe I'm just trying to wrap my mind around not being a 20something.

However! I celebrated my birthday by doing really nothing, which is what I wanted. I didn't want a whole shebang...I just wanted a quiet evening with my husband. And I got that. We ordered take out, watched TV and caught up with each other...because I've been out gallivanting all over God's creation. So it was nice to be home and celebrate with Brent, the dog and the kitty. I did go out to Water Zumba but other than that I did nothing and it was wonderful. Apparently Brent is setting something up for Saturday. Not really sure what's going but I'm just going to go with the flow. I find it sweet, he's putting thought into a shindig. He did get me 2 Tervis Tumbler cups...a Clemson one and a moustache one! So I'm one happy girl...since I have this cup obsession. I think it's because I don't want to buy clothes because I know I'll be shrinking out of them here I rather have something that's last and I can get use out of it! Or atleast that's what I'm telling myself. :)

But this past year I've had a lot of milestone happen. It was a great year. Between the surgery, getting to my goal of 199 before my birthday, losing an ass load of weight, quitting my job, focusing/rediscovering my dream of being in the fitness/health field, and just growing as a person. I learned a lot this past year about myself. I've learned to love myself...and loving myself more and more everyday. I'm learned so much about fitness and food. My relationship with Brent has grown deeper. Just the sheer fact I've gone from 377 last birthday to 199 this one. That one blows my mind. I ended my 20s at a kick ass concert...seeing one of my favorite bands and enjoying it with some even better friends! Thank again y'all!
So over all I'm at peace with being 30...the world still is it must not be that bad! LOL! And I'm super excited to see what happens this year and see what unfolds this next decade. If it's any indication of how that last 30 years have's guaranteed to be awesome and a whole hell of a lot of fun!

So I leave with 30 years of awesomeness and cuteness!! Man it was hard to decide on the pictures! But here is a montage of ME! :)


  1. Happy Birthday! I think 30 will be your best year yet. =)
