{the big one}

so...i had many good intentions of coming up with something witty for this post, but really...? i got nuthin'

reality is...i just turned 30!!! *gulp*... *gasp*

I never thought that day would come...because in ALL honesty - no idea how all my 'mature' friends feel - but i'm still 18, mentally!! serious!

so, while this day was approaching, it was with much dread on my part...i would have to face the inevitable

well, face it i did...and like i said...i still feel 18...but have a higher numeral to admit when asked "how old are you?"

so..."whatdya get?" is a question i would wonder if i had a friend who just reached such a milestone...

and the answer is: SPOILED!!

nope...nuthin' fancy by ways of an elaborate party or a big surprise bash...we had a small BBQ with some close friends and family...and then jim took me into town one day and surprised me with this:


and then...the next day, while we were trying to set this thing up (believe's A LOT more simple than the route i was chosen to take, but that's a whole 'nuther post...or two!!!) i asked jim if i could re-register for this fitness class that i have been attending since may...

his response...from left field...was, "Na, i think you should just start running's so much easier, and you come back so much happier. just get some new songs on your MP3 thingy and start running again!"

so...being oblivious to any underlying insinuations, i took that as "whoa, i guess i really HAVE fallen off that exercise-wagon and this is his subtle nudge at getting me back on it;)" *humble sigh*

okay...better get this computer set up so i can get some running tunes downloaded...and, i better find that MP3 thingy...where the heck did i put it...??

while we were setting things up, my lovely little brother was in town and decided to stop in for a visit/ aid-and-assist where needed...and as i'm busy asking questions and clicking where/when prompted, my little brother hands me this box...a big one...wrapped in birthday wrapping paper!!!! *SHOCK!!*

so...i do the giddy "what?!?! Dave!!! What is it??" and open the box to find this:


like i said...i was turning 30 was "mac-tacular!"...and now know why my hubby suggested i start running again;)

~i am blessed...
