On My Way To THIRTY!!!

My WONDERFUL friend pointed out that I’m SO close to 30, and I just can’t believe it!  I thought I would’ve had my life in order, married, and dare I say it (when I was younger, and wanted kids), I thought I’d have kids!  And where do I stand??  0 for 3!  And I’m just not liking the number 26…can’t pinpoint why, it just bugs me, it’s a weird number!  Well, my birthday was on February 3rd, a Tuesday, which makes it hard to do anything until the weekend, but it was still a good day…it was MY day.  My mother was funny, she wanted to make sure she was THE FIRST to tell me Happy Birthday, so she called me Monday night to tell me.  I had to remind her (even after having birthed me, she has her flaky moments, and it wouldn’t be THAT far fetched had she been off a day) it was the day after.  She then called me @ 7am, the next morning to wish me a happy birthday again.   On Thursday, my small women’s group celebrated my b-day, Holly got me a cake and ice cream, which was REALLY sweet!  On Friday, my friend, Sarah, came to town (with her mother), so James, Sarah (AND her mother, who happens to be almost 70 and not all there) and I went to dinner at O’Charley’s, and had a nice visit.  Saturday night was my favorite though, we had a girl’s night out, which included a FANTASTIC dinner at J. Alexander’s.  My friend, Emily, even got me some orange daisies, and brought them to the restaurant before I got there (because she had to work), so it was really thoughtful, I felt loved!  Wendy got me a copy of TWILIGHT, but she swears she’s not trying to convert the rest of the world into the crazy phenomona!  She says by the 2nd page, I’ll be hooked…doubt it, but I’ll open it when I get a chance.  On top of the cake and ice cream, Holly threw in a nice notebook (great for our bible study) and the triple chocolate M&M’s, which I haven’t opened yet, but will! After dinner, we then headed to the movie theater, with the intention of seeing “He’s Just Not That Into You”, but it had sold out right after I had my ticket, so we ended up seeing “New In Town”, which was a really cute movie.  It was a great night, and it’s nice to know I’m surrounded by such good women and friends!  I am up for celebrating my birthday still, so if you’d like to get together, lemme know 😉  For all those who wished me a happy birthday, THANK YOU!
