30 Wasn't So Bad

30 wasn't so bad yesterday I have to say.  I did have one really dark moment, but I don't want to clutter up this happy post with sadness (although I will get to it).  My coworkers had a cake for me and then I came home to a surprise basket from Andy and we all went out to dinner and it was really sweet and really lovely.  And you always feel like a rock star on facebook on your birthday.

Birthday cake at what if she spelled my name wrong?

My Mexican basket from Andy complete with Modela, wine, and Skinny Girl Margarita mix and of course some yummy treats.  But his real present to me was my surprise party. 

My sister made me a pony cake...not sure why but it was yummy.

And a wee pony for Isabella.

So instead of making a list that I may or may not get around to completing, I thought I'd hit you off with 30 facts about me.  Because, ya know, I keep so much in.

1.  Mean Girls is probably my all time favorite movie.

2.  I secretly wish I had red hair.

3.  I'm so sensitive that I can probably recall every not-so-nice thing anyone has ever said to me.

4.  When I'm home by myself I'll lay awake for hours thinking every little noise is a murderer trying to kill me. 

5.  In the past 3 months I've lost 15 lbs and I'm terrified I'll gain it all back in the summer when I'm off.

6.  My husband is my best friend and he never lets me down.  We've worked so hard to get our relationship to this point and he's the perfect fit for me.

7.  My favorite beer is Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA.  

8.  Stone IPA is a close second.

9.  I run very hot and cold.  I have a hot passion for something one minute, then am over it the next.  This is why I have a half dozen unfinished projects lying around.

10.  I floss my teeth every day.

11.  In the past 4 years I've grown so much as a person.  I used to be so insecure and needy and I feel like I'm really finding my voice and my confidence.

12.  I have no problem with self-deprecating humor.

14.  I'm really really sarcastic and I think that people who don't get that humor are kind of stupid.

15.  The worst part of my day is my commute.  I spend anywhere from 2-3 hours a day in the car and it is the bane of my existance...and my lower back.

16.  I don't like ice cream.  I'll eat cold stone once a year and that's it.

17.  Sometimes I'm really annoying.  Like I can tell I must be annoying other people because I annoy myself.

18.  The older I get the harder time I have holding my tongue.  I tend to just kind of say what's on my mind and call people out on their bullshit.

19.  Diet and exercise take time, but shoes will always fit.

20.  I'd consider myself to be a real girl's girl.

21.  When I get into a funk, it takes a lot to get me out of it. I'm not as prone to them as I once was, but when I get in one it's like I fall into a deep dark pit.

22.  There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about the baby I lost.

23.  I'm terrified of another ectopic pregnancy.  

24.  When Isabella says "Mommy" I melt every time.

25.  I never took my husband's last name.

26.  When I was 16 I snuck out of my house at 1 am to hang out with my boyfriend and I totally got busted.

27.  I have a giant fear of getting a tire blow out going 65 mph on the highway.

28.  People who are scared to drive in the car with their children by themselves really irk me.  Keeping them inside 24/7 is probably more harmful then driving with them.

29.  I like family days, but sometimes I really look forward to day trips with just Isabella and I.

30.  I sleep with a can of mace and a butcher knife in my draw, so don't try and mess with me.

Girl, we must be soul sisters or something. I am so with you on running hot and cold... getting really into something for a good week and then I just completely lose interest. I can't believe I've kept up my blog as much as I have! & I also used to be completely insecure (& still am a little), but I'm SO much more confident now!

Glad your b-day was a great one!

One day late but Happy Birthday!! I hope that this next year will be better than you can imagine.

O and I'm so with you ... shoes always fit and make a girl feel great!

I LOVE Dogfish Head and am pissed they stopped selling it in Wisconsin. My husband and I actually saw Sam trying to rap in a little dive bar in Manhattan when he first started brewing and was trying to get the word out, probably sometime in 2002.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And welcome to your thirties =) I also turned 30 this past year. I embraced it fully and have taken on the mentality that the 30's are meant for doing everything I didn't get done in my 20's ;) how's that for embracement??

Glad to hear it was a good one and thanks for stopping by my little blog today. =)
