Happy Birthday To Me: Turning 30 Again!

Sunday was my birthday, my 30th birthday *cough* 31 *cough* Just so you know this isn't the first, or the last time I will turn 30.

If I am being honest, I hate my birthdate, but you really can't choose your birth month can you?! I feel sorry for anyone I know that has a birthday that falls between 12/24 and 12/31. Those are the birthdays that are just so easy to forget. 

But I have never felt forgotten. As a young child my parents always went out of the way to make my birthday feel special (they still do). I am also blessed by a husband and two awesome daughters who spoil me.

Yesterday we woke up and did our typical Sunday routine rushing around to get ready for church. I was surprised to see a present sitting on the counter right before we left. As I have previously said, we're not really gift people. I had to open it right away. 


It was a Garmin Forerunner 15... you know the one I posted on my wish list.



I was surprised and so excited.

Okay, not completely surprised... seeing he had casually asked me about colors a few weeks ago. But still opening that box made my day. I plugged it in to charge and off we went to church

After church we met my parents for lunch. Then I came home and went on a birthday run. It was the first time I have ran outside in WAY to long. The weather was beautiful and the company was even better.


Plus I got to try out my new "toy"!


We ended up running 3.1 miles (a 5K) and I am so glad we did. I almost forgot about the time Desiree ran 3.1 for 31 and I thought that was a GREAT idea. I guess when I am 80 and I am supposed to run 8.0 miles it may be a bit of a problem. 

After my run I relaxed with my favorite girls, folded some laundry and worked on some scarves for the Etsy shop.




We wrapped up the day with a birthday date night. We took advantage of a gift card and tried out Longhorn Steakhouse. We both ate the chicken of course. What can I say we're just not a beef eaters. 

It was such a great day and I am thankful I got to spend parts of it with so many of my favorite people.

I am feeling excited for 31 (I mean 30) and a New Year starting soon.

  6. Happy (belated) birthday!!! How sweet of your hubby to get you that Garmin even though you guys are typically present people. Such a thoughtful present!
    And oh my gosh, I laughed out loud when you said 8.0 miles might be a problem when you're 80. LOL. Very true, friend, very true. Maybe you can walk in over the course of 8 days and call that a win :)
    Sounds like the perfect day!
