My Last Birthday...Ever?

Today I turn 29.

More precisely, I turn 29 at 6:36pm tonight.

I'm not super excited about it, but not really upset about it either.

On the one hand I'm like: Duuuuuuude. It's my last year in my 20's. My last year being "young." My last year before I have to be a "real" grown-up.

But on the other hand I'm like: So? I've been married forever, I've already got a kid, a sedan, a career, and a pretty sweet life, so what's the big whup?

Basically, I don't care about being 29, I just didn't like looking in the mirror on Friday and noticing some fine lines around my eyes.

That sucked.

Ah well, happy Monday!!!!

29? You're just a baby!

Some of us are 46 soon! That must make me ancient!

Happy Birthday!

You listen to Jr. The 30's were fun. More confidence.

Happy birthday.

I think a woman is in her prime in her thirties. Don't worry, you don't ever have to be a real grown up if you don't want to. I just barely feel like a grown up and I am 60!

I might make it sound like I'm dragging my feet here fighting my 40s but I have to say that my 40s have so far been the best years of my life in some ways!

Happy Birthday chica!
