On Turning 30, Memorial Day, and Fallen Heroes

Turning 30 was anticlimactic.  I still feel like I'm 14 (aside from the bad back and that whole being married with children thing).  Besides, isn't 30 the new 20 anyway!?!

And speaking of 20, my twenties were pretty damn good.  I met the love of my life at the ripe old age of 21, graduated from college and went on to earn my Masters.  I bought a house, got married, and moved to Rochester.  I gave birth to the two most amazing little boys on the planet.  And I think I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up!  (Maybe!)

Thirty might have been scary if I was at a different place in my life, but I can't help but feel like I have so much to look forward to and this is only the beginning.

My 30th birthday celebration began the weekend prior in a limousine and ended Saturday night at Thirsty's in Pittsford, where I may or may not have met my first serial killer (but that's another story for another day).  All in all, I had back to back amazing weekends, celebrating with family and friends.  What more could a girl ask for?

Besides a new Michael Kors watch of course:

Birthday outfit:

In the shade.
Mossimo for Target shoes and shades, Artwark necklace, Michael Kors watch, anthropologie dress and bracelet,
Fahsye ring, Stacey Kay Collection earrings
Fixing the 'do
I need a new pose.  And a new driveway apparently...

OPI Are We There Yet? Polish

In the end, I'm well aware that I am a very lucky girl and blessed in more ways that I ever could have dreamed.  So glad that you all are along for the ride!

I realize this should be two posts, but do to residual back issues, my birthday post didn't go up as scheduled, so let's just change gears, shall we?

Happy Memorial Day everybody!  I hope you all spent the weekend celebrating with loved ones, barbecuing out back, taking in a parade, running through a sprinkler, or all of the above.  And to all those serving and who have served - thank you for your sacrifice.  My prayers go out to all those families who have lost loved ones fighting for our great nation.   Let's all take a moment to remember that our freedom isn't free.  God bless you and God bless the USA!

Remembering our heroes at the Memorial Day parade in Fairport.

    I'm so glad you included the Wounded Warrior Project. They're such a fantastic organization.

    How's the back? Still icky?


    1. Definitely one of my favorite charities! Back is better but definitely still icky. Looks like there is a MRI in my future. 30 is definitely feeling a lot more like 80 these days. Ha! Thanks for checking in!
