I’m 30 today

Today I am 30. I didn’t feel any different turning 30 today than I had turning any of my birthdays in my 20’s. The only twinge I got was seeing 30 in print on a card, but eh, I guess I’ll get over it. Today I still danced a little, did a really bad Sarah Palin impersonation, played my Britney Spears on my Iphone really loud, and slept in. Yeah, nothing has changed. And the day’s not even over yet!

Actually, last night, my friend Molly and I went to Billy’s BBQ, a Lexington establishment (Voted best BBQ in local papers). We were just having a standard conversation when my friend Steve (I finally remembered his blog link!) walked up and sat down. I was like, “Huh?”. It was so surreal. I don’t get to see him too often and it was a super nice treat and super special that he would come all the way from Louisville for my big day. Then about 3 minutes later, Carl walked in. I wasn’t expecting him either. I sat there shocked still when both Carl’s wife, Cynthia and Andrea walked in! They had all come in town just for my day. I had joked to Molly a month or so back that I’ve never had a real “surprise party” and that I’m always hard to be surprised, but she totally got me and she got me good this time! Cynthia, Molly, and Andrea ended up staying the night and we went to IHOP this morning. It was a really good time! I decided to take my b-day off today to hang out with Molly, so it all worked out just as she had planned (MWAH HA HA). It was so nice to spend time with everyone.

Here’s a pic…

    Too cool! I’ve never had a surprise party, and yours sounds absolutely perfect.

    Also, turning 30 was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

    All my Sarah Palin impersonations come out sounding like a reject from the movie Fargo…

    Happy Belated Birthday.

    Yeah, 30 didn’t feel any different for me. I think the 27-28 was stranger. And on my 29th I had a 1 month old putting me through my paces, so I barely remember that…

    Maybe 31 will feel different?
