It's my Birthday

So I turned 30 last week! What a big and exciting thing! I had big plans of having a huge Birthday party - and playing games and yummy food and all sort of wonderful things. But sometime in the last 11 years I became a little bit more like my husband than I had expected. A perfect night to me is just a quiet evening with some of my closest friends...and even more perfect is just a quiet night with my husband. Relaxing. No responsibilities. So that's what I asked for this year for my Birthday - some downtime. So to start it all off I went to Montana with some of my favourite people. We had invited a few others, but not everyone could make it (work, their hubbies out of town, or nursing babies). So Charlotte, Becc, my good friend Lahni and I made a long weekend trip to Montana (thanks to Lahni's family for letting us use their cabin). I spent a lot of money - on ME!! Only me! This is rare. But I promised myself to focus on myself. Of course I picked up a few things for the girls...but I got a little selfish this weekend. And that's ok. We ate out, we shopped, we found some Cafe Rio, and we stayed up late talking about everything. It was soooo good to have hours and hours of girl talk! 

Apparently Ben still has some big plans for me and I can't wait. I'm thinking a weekend away with him. That's what I want. We'll of course go out to dinner and a movie or something. But I want a few days, in a cabin in the mountains with my hubby!! That sounds perfect to me.

Anyway, 30 isn't that big of a change for me. My hair already went grey a few years ago. I'm never going to have wrinkly I'm not worried about that. lol. Mostly I just feel legitimate. Like this is the age I'm legitimately allowed to have 3 kids, we're allowed to own a home, I'm allowed to be ok with a quiet boring birthday. No one's looking at me thinking I'm WAY too young to live the life I do. I'm legit.
