Thirty is the New Fifteen

As of today - 9/10/11 - I am officially THIRTY. 30MG. When I went to bed last night, I was feeling kind of sad and scared about leaving my twenties behind. I’m over that - I feel like your twenties are practice for your thirties, where you really figure yourself out and things fall into place. If I look back on these thirty years, I have to say that I have so much to be thankful for and I have accomplished a lot of the things I hoped I would by this point in my life.

It also helps that I subscribe to the idea that thirty is the new fifteen - so talk to me about being an adult in another twenty years. Until then, I will be assing it up and avoiding any semblance of “grown-up-ness.” Cheers!

Sorry I had to grow up, Mom.

The Big 3-0 is Coming

It’s true. In a few short days, I will be thirty. THIRTY. I’m pretty much fine with it, since I feel like I’m about twelve. I just hate that OTHER people think thirty is old and that I should be settled by now. (They obviously haven’t heard - thirty is the new fifteen.) No matter what I think about the whole thing - it is a benchmark. Benchmarks are supposed to be celebrated with pretty clothes, right? I found these three stunners from Planetclairevintage - and any one of them will fit the birthday outfit requirement perfectly. Hint.

Custom Invites for Baby Hunter!

One of my very good friends from college asked me to do the invites for her baby’s FIRST BIRTHDAY! I was so excited and flattered. He loves sock monkeys, so here it is… Happy Birthday, Hunter!

Hooray for birthdays!

OK, I’m jumping the gun a tiny bit. Today is not my birthday, but tomorrow is! I will be a whopping 28 years old - which is really wild to me because I remember when my parents were 28. I cannot believe how fast time goes by. Better make the most of it!

As for birthday plans, I’m hoping the day is filled with lots of pink frosting, pretty dresses and maybe a margarita or two with friends and fam. Cheers! xoxo…

How about a jam for the big day? Loving this…been playing it in my car all week. (Sorry, audio only…but so worth it.)
