{Today I’m 30}

So I swore last year that this would be my 2nd annual 29th birthday and I would not turn 30!  Well I’ve decided to gracefully accept the fact that I am no longer a twentysomething.  I”m not going to wallow in misery instead I’m going to have fun and celebrate a new chapter in my life!  I have a new dress, I’ve lost almost 10lbs (thank you Weight Watchers) and I’m having a birthday party at the local pub.  Instead of drowning my sorrows I will be celebrating with friends and family with whatever hard cider they have in stock 🙂  I plan to laugh a lot and try not to end up with a hangover.  I’m crossing my fingers for lemon cake with lemon icing because it is my favorite!  In honor of my 30th birthday I’m posting a montage of photos of me through the years.  I am leaving out the really heinous ones because hey it is my blog and I can do that 🙂  I am totally including some photos of my little sister when she was a baby just so when I post them to Facebook I can tag her!  I’m sure she will be thrilled, lol!!!  Forgive the quality on some of these photos, they were scans from a couple years ago.
