Well, it's happened, I've hit the big 3-0. It doesn't feel any different than being in my 20's, and I'm not one of those people who thinking of of their age as a bad thing. I figure when you get older you've gotta stay positive and keep the philosophy of "You are only as young as you feel". Which is playing as HUGE part in my life right now. I've been on the "Path for Health Success" since June and I've lost almost 30 lbs, between Weight Watchers (which I have stopped) and this great website called myfitnesspal.com . I had joined it a while ago, but didn't know anyone on it so I closed my account until a few friends of mine joined.
So back to the Birthday. My birthday was last Monday the 18th. The Hubbie and my friend Amanda, threw together a Surprise Birthday Party for me, on the 16th. It was great to see so many of my friends there. I was a little disapointed with some of my friends, not because they didn't show, but because when they were contacted about the party they didn't even respond back. I know that many of them wouldn't be able to make it because they live no where near me, but that's not even the point. There were only 2 of them that responded. I know I'm not the best friend, but when it's someone's birthday, and I can't be there, I make sure to at least send them a Birthday Card and a Birthday Text... So I was a little bummed to say the least.
Like I said, the hub's and my dear friend Amanda, threw me a surprise party. It was at Bubba Gumps. It was so much fun to just sit and hang out with everyone. I was surprised to say the least. They even went out to this AMAZING bakery and bought me a "Death by Chocolate" cake. It was AMAZING! After that we walked around Cannery Row, in Monterey and had a blast! We tried to go get some after party drinks at this new place that opened up, however... it was SO BUSY!
The party continued into the week. On Monday, my actual birthday, someone had leaked to my students that is was my birthday. They all came in with big hugs and nice manners for the day (along with some gifts). It was really sweet. I made some birthday Cinnamon Rolls for them and they LOVED IT! At the end of the day, I thanked them for making my day so special and now that I know how GOOD they can be I expect it everyday. HA!
So all in all it was a great birthday. The buffet in my dinning room is covered with birthday wishes from my thoughtful friends and family.
