30 in a Different Light

Aaaaah, so my last post. Yeah. Hub and my BFF threw me a surprise party yesterday. Most of my family and friends were there. There was bowling, and cake and pizza and music and many wonderful gifts. I couldn’t have asked for a better day; it was truly amazing. I’m not getting rid of my last post because it was how I felt in the moment. I’m starting to think now though, that 30 might not be so bad.

Which brings me to my NaBloPoMo idea for this year---30 years in 30 days. I won’t lie, I saw this somewhere last year, but having just begun my 31st year, I thought I’d have a go at documenting some events from 1978 through 2008 and really commemorating my 30 years on this earth. Fun, right? Maybe we’ll even have some photos of me through the years.

I’m hoping to have photos of the party soon to show you the over-the-top decorations, my sweater festooned with several obnoxious, flashing buttons, as well as a gigantic dunce of a party hat…oh, and Lucy wearing her hat in a unicorn-y fashion (ALL DAY). Clearly, I wasn’t prepared with my camera. Hub did a pretty good job of keeping it a secret, though I did begin to suspect when he turned the volume way down on a phone call he took Saturday (his phone volume is always THRU THE ROOF!) and the shifty weird way he was behaving yesterday morning. I’m glad I took a shower and at least put on some mascara!

Yes, I am loved. And it was a great day.

Much better! Homer threw me an over-the-top surprise party one time and, even though I would have never asked for such a thing, it was awesome.

I couldn't reply to your comment but I lived in Medina until I was 17.

Oh hooray for nice surprises! I'm so glad it was lovely for you.
My husband and family threw me a surprise 30th too (ack, 6 years ago!) and it was great. Just friends and family and it couldn't have been nicer.
