I looked in the mirror before I went to the gym this morning and said "I am 30 ",

{but I don't feel like it} Although what does being 30 mean? So quickly I have compiled a list:

1. You have the right to have children {by the worlds standards}

2. You have to become more prepared{wills, retirement, life insurance}

3. You should buy a house {32 is the average age nation wide}

4. You are no longer young by any ones standards{somehow you still are at 29}

5. You need to make sure to wear sunscreen, to protect your skin that you tanned way to much in your 20's

6. You have more body maintenance because lets face it your body changes{working out, waxing, facials, hair removal, boob job or tummy tuck, just to name a few}

7. You get to enjoy life because you know what you want and where you are headed!

8. I can no longer blame the stupid things I do on being in my 20's and not knowing better!

Can you think of any more?

I have had a great day so far, I'm heading off to get a pedicure and lunch with my Mom, and then tonight Jamie's planned evening should be a fun surprise!{I'll fill you all in later}

Happy Birthday sweet friend, welcome to the club. Being 30 was fun! Remember age doesn't matter it's how you feel on the inside that counts. I am so glad you are my friend.
