Do These Jeans Make My Butt Look Old?

Well, this is it, folks. I have officially moved out of my twenties. I am thirty. Boy does that sound weird! No, seriously...the number itself sounds so odd to me. I guess it's probably more because I remember both of my parents 30th birthdays. It was a big deal, so I actually remember them. That's weird. I can't be as old as my parents! LOL! (Yes...I understand that they are no longer 30, but you get the point! LOL!)

Do I feel older? No. Do we ever? I mean, really. I have progressed exactly one day from yesterday, and I do that on a daily basis, so no, I don't feel older.

Is it still weirding me out? Absolutely! I'm not depressed or upset, it just seems ODD, that's all. Does that even make sense?

Do I look older? Well, what do you think? I took this shot this morning. Do these jeans make my butt look old?

I can tell you ONE thing, however! I am smarter! Yup! I discovered that with my age I gained INSTANT wisdom! Would you believe that this morning at around 5:45am I had this thought for the first time in my thirty years: "Hmmm...I bet the full length mirror would be better for taking a self portrait than the bathroom with the sucky lighting!" So, there you have it, folks. If you haven't turned thirty yet...know that you will be wiser! We aren't going to discuss what I was prior to making this realization because....well....ya....moving on.

So, there you have it. The thirty year old version of me. I'm pretty happy with it, actually. As a matter of fact - I down right LIKE me. I guess that's a good thing!

  7. I turned 30 on my birthday in October..and my sentiments were about the same as yours. It feels strange, because growing up, I thought "GEE, when I'm 30, I'll be so old, but I don't feel old..." Just like hey, i'm not a kid anymore. Anyway, enough about me. It's your big day....so party hardy! And ENJOY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

  9. Happy Birthday!!! I can't believe you remember you parents 30th b-days. My mom was 29 when she had me and my dad was about to turn 34. And, I'm the oldest!!! Maybe that's why turning 30 (now 32) didn't phase me.
    Hope you have some awesome cupcakes today and get some wonderful goodies!!!!
