and I was like, when did that happen?!

Today is my birthday. Today I turn 30. I'm super excited about it. I feel like it's a time for new beginnings. I hope to turn it into a decade of wonderfulness and adventure! I want my thirties to be amazing and I am committed to making sure that happens. Even if life decides to throw us a rough curveball, I'll be ready and willing to conquer any trial with the blessed assurance that my God is big enough to handle it.

I have been struggling lately with my weight loss. Kinda hit a bump in the road that threw me off course for awhile, but I've found my way back and while I'm not at the goal I had originally set for myself to be at by my birthday (I had hoped to be at 185) I did reset a realistic goal after gaining back a little of the weight I had lost. My summer journey had brought me down to 192 and then back up to 202. So a week and a half ago I rededicated myself to this lifestyle and made a goal of 195 by my birthday. I knew it would take a lot of work and focus. I knew I would have to get off my lazy butt once again. I knew it would be hard. And I was right. This morning I tentatively stepped up onto the scale and was so excited to see the numbers ONE-NINE-FIVE staring up at me. I mean... I did it!

Realistically, today is just another day. Sure we will be celebrating this evening but today will go on like any other. Laundering, playing, changing diapers, washing dishes, studying, reading, eating sandwiches... the usual. But that's okay. If the world wanted to stop so I could bask in birthday glory I would be cool with that, but of course that is not reality and I'm okay with that too!

Tonight we will go out for dinner, the five of us and then the kids will go to play at a friend's house while Eric and I go see this movie-

Ooh, I'm excited! LOL I'm sure my mom is cringing!

Here's to a wonderful year!

So, have a happy day! Enjoy it!
