Life after 30!

So I have been 30 for a week and 4 days now. I don't feel older and now I can see how older peole always think they are cool or good dressers. I'm not old, I'm just realizing how you still in your mind think you are 20 but you keep getting older. I still feel like I am not old enough to be 30. Ha!
My birthday was OK.....The day I turned 30 I was in Texas for Leslie's graduation. That was totally OK with me. She graduated from college and that is a HUGE deal. I am so proud of her. But it definitely didn't feel like my birthday....Then Curt threw me a party this last weekend. Half the people who said they were coming did not come, so I had made twice as much food and dessert than I needed to. The enchiladas and cupcakes did not turn out how I would have liked them to and that is always a bummer. There is always those feelings of disappointment when things don't turn out the way you want, like your party, but on the flip side you are so grateful for what you got. Does that make sense? I hate feeling like a burden to people.
I was so thankful for my friends that did come. We had such a great time! Elizabeth and Jill may have gotten me the best present I have ever gotten from anyone accept Curt. They got me a Tiffany's charm with an inscription that said "Love J & E". That is exactly the kind of things that I love....something that is sentimental and will make you remember those people for the rest of your life. And I love Tiffany's. I have 2 charm bracelets from there, one that I got when I was in New York and another that Curt got me when we got married and it has my new initials on it. I still cannot believe they did that. I'm still in shock. Its not very often that I am surprised with something that I will adore.
Curt was great! He had games planned for the party. A trivia about me and a word search puzzle and he even had prizes for the winners. He got me a new Seahawks sweatshirt with #97 on the back - Patrick Kerney is my favorite Seahawk. That dude is a machine. He also got me a Starbucks mug with pictures of my neices and nephews in it. I could not have asked for a better husband! He is so good to me.

We are busy busy packing up the little condo. I cannot believe that it is only a week and 2 days until we leave. Curt and I know that we will both be crying as we drive out of town. We have such great friends here. And so many people we wish we had a little more time with to get to know better. We will miss them all terribly.
We get the privilege of going on vacation with Sky and Suz at the end of this month. We are going to fly to New York and then rent a car and drive all around the New England states. We are all history dorks so its going to be a lot of fun! I cannot wait! I have always wanted to see the history in New England. I have already been to New York and Washington DC, but now I will get to go to Boston and see Plymouth Rock. Yay!
So we have lots of fun things coming up! Life is good!
