The Dirty 30

So, my birthday was Saturday. The birthday. The one where you're supposed to stop telling people how old you really are and just say 29. Gah, I don't feel like I'm mature enough to be 30. It's just so grown up!

To celebrate, Ant and I went out for dinner on Friday night. The park district was offering a parent's night out so we dropped Harry off before heading out. We just went up to the mall, and ate at Stir Crazy. It used to be one of our favorite places! Was nice to go back. We spent about 3 hours eating and walking around before heading back to pick up Harry.


He had a great time despite being the youngest kid there (a 5 year old girl was the closest in age to him). They made cookies, ate hot dogs, played games and did crafts. Oh, and apparently he got to have 2 glasses of lemonade- a real treat since he only drinks water or milk at home. The park district has the parent's night out every so often, so I'm sure we'll sign up again.

Oh, and in case you noticed that little fleck on the side of my nose, it's not dirt, I got it pierced. Again. I got it done for the first time when I was 20 and took it out for a job after college. It was a bit of an impulse decision earlier this week. Ant's been wanting a tattoo, so we went to Top Notch Tattoos to speak with an artist about a design. While we were there Ant said to go for the piercing if I wanted, as an early birthday present. I thought it would hurt more the second time around because of scar tissue (I got it done in the exact same spot), but it hardly hurt at all. And my eyes barely watered, the first time it was like water works on the right side of my face.

Saturday morning the boys woke me up with my favorite, Taco Bell breakfast in bed. And Harry surprised me with some fantastic presents.


Earlier in the week Ant took Harry to the Dollar Tree to pick out some gifts for me. Apparently he picked out everything on his own, he did a pretty good job I think, he knows me well. Along with the nose piercing, Ant let me pick out some Makeup Geek eye shadows and I should be getting a new cell phone in the next couple weeks- mine sucks and is anything but "smart" these days. I'd say I made out pretty well!

After dinner that night it was time for cake. Harry picked the theme, Frozen, of course.


My name's a little smooshed, but that's okay ;) It tasted great (another Super Target cake) and I loved the candles they picked out.


LOL! And funnily enough, we'll be able to use the same ones next year!


 Here's to making 30 great!!

  1. Happy Belated Birthday! Looks like you had a fantastic day!

    30 is just a number. You're still an awesome mom, and an age doesn't change that. This years going to rock, and this decade will be the best one yet... Just because you're you! <3
