29 and NOT Counting

So I turn 29 today. My dad asked me how it felt to be only one year from 30. I am not sure yet, but I figure I will have several years to find out, because I may just stay here for awhile. Plus, how often is it that you can be the same age as your mother? And I certainly don’t want to pass her up in age. 😉

I have had a wonderful day. My friend and coworker, Ann, brought in cookies so we could celebrate the day with much snacking. She also bought me a pretty flowering plant, a helium balloon, and a huge book of scrapbooking layout ideas.

After I had been at work for a couple hours, a package was dropped off at my desk. It is always so exciting to have a surprise delivered to you at your place of work. My surprise was a thoughtful cookie bouquet from Greggor, along with a sweet card that promised a nice backrub tonight too. Looking very forward to that! He and I will be having a nice dinner together, just the two of us, sometime early next week.

Tonight, Ann, Heather, and I went to CB & Potts for a girls’ night. We sat on the patio, enjoying the beautiful evening, and griped about work and talked about life, our husbands, and babies. What a great day.

    Happy Birthday! When I turned 25, I realized that I was much closer to 30 than to 20 & it was sort of sad. It was like saying goodbye to my being a “kid” and then I officially became an adult or something. Silly! I’ll be 27 next week and I’m not really looking too forward to that.

    Don’t ya just love co-workers? We have a potluck for every single birthday in our office & there are always so many wonderful treats to eat. It really is nice to work somewhere that’s so thoughtful.

    Happy Birthday, Amber!!! I think staying at 29 sounds fantastic…I know I plan to when I get there (still have a year and a half or less…). It’s a family tradition…my grandfather still tells me that he’s 29, too!! 🙂

    Hope you had a great day!

    Happy Belated birthday! My mother was perpetually 29, too. She can’t pull it off anymore, but I am still trying to!
