30 Years Young

I haven't been too excited about the prospect of being 30. You picture your life and you have certain expectations at what your life will be like and unfortunately I would have liked to be a mom of 2 by now. However, I am learning to accept things I have no control over and how important it is to be happy and grateful for what I do have because I am actually very blessed.

Anyway, we had a quiet celebration for my birthday. New Years Eve Barry's parents watched Owen while Barry and I went out for dinner. We called into Texas Roadhouse and had them put them on their waiting list. The wait was an hour so we decided to go over to Kohls before dinner. It's sort of a birthday tradition that Barry lets me go shopping for a new clothes. Barry's parents gave me a gift card to Famous Footwear, JCPenney, and the cutest necklace/earring set. So New Years Day Barry's mom and grandmother went shopping with me. I used my Famous Footwear gift card and got some really cute Mary Jane church shoes. Then we headed over to DownEast Outfitters (one of my favorite stores) and I got some super cute skirts and a dress. So I was pretty spoiled. Of course everything was 50% off so that's the best part of my birthday being right after Christmas!

30, flirty, and fabulous! Wearing my new sweater, skirt, necklace, earrings, shoes, and hair flower on my birthday last Sunday.


  1. Happy belated birthday Rebecca! It sounds like it was really fun. Don't worry about the age thing, it really is ONLY a number, you are as young or old as you think you are. Hope you and Barry and Owen have a wonderful year and all your wishes come true!
