On Turning Thirty-Three


Well, that happened fast.  June 15th was my birthday.  Thirty-Three years of my life.  Gone.  Just like that.  What is it about exiting high school that activates hyper drive on the speed that life passes you by?  Seriously, growing up, it seems like it will never happen - you know, growing up.  Adulthood feels like a dream that will never be realized, but it really is just a feeling, because adulthood happens and then before you know it, you are a senior citizen.  You are probably thinking, "Jeeze, Amy, being a little melodramatic there."  Not really.  Life goes by DANG fast.  How fast is "dang" fast?  I don't know the exact specs really, just take my word for it.  Okay?

No matter how old I get, I think I will always do kid things to celebrate my birthday.  The year before last, I went roller skating.  It was fantastic.  Then last year I ate at Lamberts, a place that throws rolls at you.  This year, I went to Incredible Pizza Company and I had so much fun playing skee ball and bumper cars.  Seriously, a fun birthday.  My husband made my cake again and it was the best.  He used a strawberry cake mix but made the icing from scratch and used my favorite candy for decoration... LOVE!

Today was a family reunion.  I had such a great time talking with more distant relatives and also hanging out with my mom and grandma.  The kids had fun in my mom's 3 ft deep pool and I had fun eating myself to oblivion.  I was on a see it eat it diet.  I don't think it worked too well for me, but it sure tasted good.

Until Next time.

  6. That seriously sounds like a really relaxing family reunion! :) Congrats on being one step closer to old age... we are all getting there aren't we? :) I think, though, that those who have kids see the time fly by even quicker due to how fast kids grow up. Guess I'm getting ready to experience that!

    You are beautiful and thirty-three doesn't seem to hurt you at all! :)
    Cheers to the next!

  7. I'm not really a fan of my own birthday, I hate any attention being put on me, but my daughter's birthday is 9 days after mine and I make a HUGE deal about it! But the best thing about a birthday is the food :P it's basically a green light to eat anything you want! It seems like life goes by faster and faster each year, I'm 26 this year but it still feels like I'm waiting to turn 18. Hope you had a great day!!

    1. ha ha ha. I know what you mean, I really hate being the center of attention... I can handle it pretty well with my close friends and family, but I still get embarrassed pretty easy.
