Sh! It's a secret!

It's June. I'm sure you knew that already....

but did you know that it also means that my birthday is coming up in just a few short weeks? This year marks my 30th birthday. But....

SSSHHHHHHH! Don't tell anyone.

Because honestly......I don't want anymore birthdays. I knew this birthday would be different from the others for me, but I didn't think I would be having this hard of a time with it. I don't feel old, nor do I think that 30 is old. I just feel like I'm in between places right now. I know it sounds random....but I'm wondering.....does a new decade mean I can't try to pull off "Young and sassy" anymore? I'm not going to be in my 20's anymore. The 20's are fun and exciting...right? Except for that I became a mom at 20 and so my fun consisted of Blue's Clues and Spiderman. Now that I don't have an infant in the home any longer....I feel the urge to act a bit more immaturely and want to just have some fun. You know, be crazy.....{as crazy as a mom can get anyway}. But then I remember.....I'm going to be 30. I told the hubby that I felt like I couldn't pull off cute and sassy because I felt like I was supposed to look a certain way now. What certain way you ask? Not a clue. I'm not old. But I have a kid who's almost 10 years old. So, how do you mix motherhood and being young and sassy?

Random thoughts....I know.

I also told the hubby that he was forbidden to celebrate my birthday this year. The present is still expected :0), but nothing else. I don't want the birthday. Maybe if there is no birthday we can all just pretend like I stayed 29. :0)

What do I want for my birthday you ask? Why....what every woman who has had children wants.....

My 18 year old body back!

A little lift and a little tuck.....put everything back into place. I'm not talking sucking or sculpting.....just no more sagging and excess skin. Sheesh....

The hubby says it's not going to happen. He did perk up when I told him I may be willing to enhance certain features if he would fork out the cash for the lifting and tucking. In fact, his exact words were, "Really? So how big we talking?" Such a pervert he is. :0) Alas....he still said this was not the year for any sort of enhancing. I may have to settle for something else.

As long as I don't have to turn 30. But, you all know how to keep a secret anyway right? Just remember.....

Ashlee is 29.......Ashlee is 29......Ashlee is 29......Ashlee is 29.......

I think you will always be cute and sassy, even as a grandma! I am glad you are going through all of this first, then I can call you and whine when I turn 30.

Thirty isn't that bad. Since I have been in my thrities two years now I can tell you that it is not as different from your twenties...well you late twnties because all the "important" landmarks have passed:
16-"offically" able to date
18- able to vote and move away from home if one chooses to.
21- offically considered an adult. you are offically able to enter places you otherwise could not.

The only thing that I have found with age is that one has to work harder at the weightloss thing.Otherwise,I think of myself as 25 again!

you can call it "29, part deux"! :) turning the big 3-0 isn't bad. i actually took it rather well. i suggest doing something BIG! something fun! not sure if you're up for skydiving (since you have kids and they make you sign your life away before they let you do it), but for me, it was the best way to jump start the 30s! :)

Turning 30 didn't bother me.. What bothered me was realizing that the past 10 years have absolutely FLOWN by! Knowing that, I know that the next 10 will go even more quickly.. and I will be 40.. I don't think I'm going to like turning 40...
