Noooooo!!!!!!


The time is rapidly approaching. . . my 30th birthday is around the corner. I can remember a few years ago when I was in Arizona and it happened to be my sis-in-law Patti's 30th birthday. She was a little sad and down about the whole day and was totally bummed that she had reached that dreaded number. I was only about 25 at the time and I was totally confused that a 30th birthday could make someone so miserable, and I swore that I would NEVER feel that way when I turned 30. Who cares right? Its just a number!  WELL!! I find myself thinking about this terrible number quite often and feel all these horrible feelings creeping up on me. I can't believe that my 20's are almost over. The most important decade of my life! I met my Josh, got married, had my  2 amazing boys, bought my house, etc. So much happened!! How can I say goodbye to the best years of my life? Well, I guess the only solace is going to be the thought of another decade with my sweet family and the promise that 30 is the new 20. . . RIGHT?????

Hey Mandi,
Just to let you know the best is yet to come! I have nearly 19 years on you and can honestly say that I have enjoyed every year God has blessed me with. Just keep reminding yourself... it beats the alternative choice :)
Life goes by so quickly. When I think I will be 49 in April, I gasp!

Mandi, you are so cute. I just love reading your blog. I remember back when we were still single digits and couldn't stand each other. And now we're almost 30. Girl, I love you something fierce. Your 20's may have been the best years of your life... so far, but just wait. I have a feeling good things are coming to you in your 30's. You deserve it.

All is well with being 30. It was 31 that threw me for some reason. And now I just don't think about age.

You are so not old - even if you're going to be 30. Your blog is super cute. Love the Mackey's rule button. You're gonna have to make me one ;-)
I'm so glad you come and hang with us on Thursdays.

Jessica just turned 30 a few weeks ago and went through similar feelings. Don't worry...30s are really great! Just ask Joshie!

It's funny you said that because I was just talking about this the other day. As you know my birthday is in April and I will be 30. I am feeling SOOO depressed about it. I have not even turned 30 yet and already I am having the hardest time with it. I feel like it can't be real, I must be dreaming. Hang in there! Let me know how ou get through it so I can too. :)

I guess it's all in your perspective...I loved your blog. Reminds me when I was younger. Good news...The 30's and 40's are way better than the 20's! You've got lots to look forward to Mandi. Happy Birthday.

Happy late Birthday Mandi! I hope it was a good one. What did you do for your big day. Who cares what age you are, you look great and you've got an awesome family! And I have to say 30 is the new 20. For that to be true in my life though, I have a few pounds to lose. My body isn't 20 anymore, but my mind is! :) Love ya!
