Happy Birthday to Me & A Giveaway for YOU!

I turned 30 twenty-two minutes ago. You guys, I just turned 30! What is my life? I am pretty sure that last year I turned 21, so where have I been the last nine years? Oh yeah, kids. And laundry. That’s where I’ve been. Ha! I very clearly remember the day my mom turned 30, and I remember thinking that she was so old. Now that I am here it feels so surreal. In fact, I woke up this morning to several happy birthday messages (which I absolutely adored) and actually had to call my husband to ask him if it was in fact my birthday and if I had somehow missed the last glorious day of my 20’s. It honestly felt like I was either losing my mind, or that I was right in the middle of a Twilight Zone episode. Side note- does the fact that I know what the Twilight Zone is make me old?? (Curse you Disney for changing the Tower of Terror!)

Anyway, luckily I was able to live the last day in my 20’s to the absolute fullest. I shared a protein shake with my toddler who wouldn’t stop sticking his pudgy little digits in my cup, I legit cleaned poop out of my 4 year old’s underwear (potty training is a b___!!!), I stared at the dishes in the sink wishing that I was Matilda and could do them with my telekinetic powers, went to dinner with my amazing in-laws who somehow love me despite of all of my quirks, then I came home to more poop…in the bathtub… left by my toddler dude. Now, I am drinking diet coke and stuffing chocolate in my face to ring in the next decade of my life, because..well…chocolate. And I’m 30. So to summarize, my last day of youth was full of poop, messes, family, more poop and chocolate. I’d say it was a success!

30 though, I just can’t get over it! I have been anticipating this birthday for a while now… mostly from family members joking with me about how I should throw a funeral for my youth because it’s long gone now. But it’s funny, I feel so excited for this chapter in my life. It feels like New Years Day all over again. I get a fresh start, and I am so optimistic for what the future holds. I think my 30’s will be even better than my 20’s. And if you ask my husband, I’m way cooler now than I was ten years ago, so I can only imagine what ten more will bring.

I always joke that I grew up in Nordstrom, mostly because it is my favorite place but also because it is partially true. One of my favorite birthday traditions (and favorite things in general) is walking into Nordstrom with my chai latte in hand browsing through all of the beautiful clothes and shoes. My mom always treats me to something that I love and usually can’t afford. I can still pick out each gift in my closet and think to the time that we spent together in our favorite store ever.

For my birthday I want to treat you! I am giving away a $100 Nordstrom gift card to one lucky reader! You know you want it, so enter below for your chance to win!

Here’s to more laughing out loud, awkward dance parties, fun, kissing, chocolate, family, and love.

30, you are going to be my best year and decade yet!

    Happy Birthday! Love your attitude about the next decade. I feel like I accomplished a good amount in my 20s and that hopefully with school done, family changing and growing, there will be more opportunities to grow, relax, stress and make more memories.
