Am I supposed to feel old?

This Saturday, I am turning 30.  My office was decorated this morning in "Over the Hill" party items, and "CAUTION: OLD ZONE" tape. While I'm grateful that someone took the time to decorate my office, in an effort to make me feel special... I don't feel 'over the hill'! What's the big deal about 30? OK, so I haven't made it onto any lists like, "Millionares Under 30" or "Top 30 Bloggers Under 30"- but other than that, I'm feeling OK with turning 30.

If it's true that you are only as old as you feel, then I am 90 years old every Monday morning at 6 a.m. And pretty much every weeknight around 9 p.m.!

I feel lucky, at 30, to be able to say that I have two wonderful, healthy children and a husband who I love very much. I have a stable job, and a stable home.  At this point in my life, I know who my true friends are and I know myself.  I do not have any big regrets... I am turning 30, and I'm happy about it!! I don't feel old, my parents aren't even old!  So, bring it on '30'- I'm ready for you.

Are you upset about an upcoming milestone birthday?  Why or why not? Tell me!


  1. Just had my 30th on the 5th. I don't feel old either. I had a Harry Potter birthday party, I think that kinda says a little something about feeling young.

    The only craptastic surprise I got this year was the fact that hitting a milestone birthday make your health insurance premiums go up... beware...


  2. What!!! liar! You were so mad about turning 30 haha

  3. betrayed by my own sister...
