Today started out with CJ waking me up around six-ish because he just really needed some Fresca (something Nana got him hooked on).

So then I got to clean out Mac's dog run in the pouring rain because he chewed up his roof (don't ask me how) and was making so much noise that Trey wouldn't take his morning nap. That's always fun.

Then we picked up Chad at the airport because he's finally home. And CJ insisted on eating at Applebees for lunch because "he needed a steak."

"You've never had steak," I said.

"That's why we need to go to Applebees, so I can try a steak." He replied with all the impatience of a 15 year-old. Duh.

Then I ran some errands ALONE which was nice seeing as I've done every ounce of Christmas shopping with two kids in tow.

Then I was presented with a Krispy Kreme donut with candles on it.
 I look at these three people
and realize I'm in an amazing place for being 30.   Tonight I was rocking Trey to sleep he turned his fat little face into mine and gave me big, wet 11 month-old kisses. Then he snuggled his blankie while laying on my shoulder and went to sleep. The best ever.

You look great, you are doing great and you have a beautiful family. 30 is the new 20. Or think if it like this, as cool as your 20's but you don't make as many dumb mistakes....

happy birthday anyway (they could have at least let you sleep in....).

If I can look like you and be as domestic and creative as you when I turn 30 I'll be giddy and consider my self pretty darn spiffy.

Happy Birthday!

J--It's me, Toni. I changed my name on this thing and now I can't get it to go back! Urgh!

So, I feel for you--having a bad day like that. Being a wife and mother can be so overwhelming and ridiculously mundane and repetitive at times. That's why us girls need to stick together and remind eachother about how blessed we really are!

Turning 30 is a milestone, for sure. But the thirties are so much better than the twenties--trust me. You will love it. At least you are not a year away from 40, like me! But, I think the 40s will be pretty cool, too. Hang in there! We love you!

Sorry it's late - but HAPPY Birthday! If I can look half as gorgeous as you when I am 30, I'll consider myself lucky! (I still have 6 more months!)
