I headed out west this weekend for 30th birthday celebration / Thanksgiving 09 (Abilene Style) / The Nutcracker (staring Ms Ella as one of the little angels).  And fun was had by all :)  It was nice to spend some quality time with my cousin and sister on Friday ( till 3 A.M.  LOL), then Saturday was BUSY.  Cooking, eating, pictures, ballet, more eating… it was good times.  Ella was in the Nutcracker this year, and she was too cute!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Paramount in downtown Abilene.  It is like stepping back in time and is truly something you must experience if you are ever in Abilene.  It was a great weekend, and now on with the pictures…

On Turning 30…

November 15, 2009

Truth be told… when I turned 29 I FREAKED OUT!!! T-365 to THAT HORRID DAY I WAS NO LONGER IN MY 20′s!!!!!!  I had a mini late 20′s crisis as if the day I turned 30, a scarlet “30″ would be stamped on my forehead and everyone 29 and younger would roll their eyes thinking ‘what does this old lady know’.  Then the time drew close…and I actually……………Got…………….EXCITED!!!!!  WHO WANTS  TO TURN 30  ??  BUT  I  DID. I must start new goals on Mondays, or the 1st day of the month, or if the stars align… the 1st is a Monday :)  So I look at it a new beginning, fresh slate.  It’s a new decade of life,   a time for renewal, a time to Carpe Diem.  So here is to life, and all it still has to offer :) And my next 30 years…   ;)

And to eating chocolate cake….
