The Day After..

It is the day after my 30th birthday.  I'm officially 30!  Not in my twenties anymore.  It all gets better from here, right?  Heck yeah, it does.

Ok, I admit that my GRAND ENTRY into this new decade in my life was more like a little fizzle.  Actually, it SUCKED!  I spent the morning of my special day trying to get an almost 3 year old ready for HER birthday party at Chuck E Cheese.  Not MY party...HER party.  Anyone who has ever raised or even babysat a toddler knows that sometimes it is quite challenging.  "Challenging" is a nice way to put how our morning went.  It was more like "Can I please hide under a rock or jump off my balcony instead of argue with a 2 year old" kind of morning.  It took so long getting her dressed and dressed again that I didn't have time to really get myself ready.  boo. Went into my 30's looking like I was headed into a 9am class after partying too much on my 21st birthday.

The night of my birthday ended just as lame as it began.  I was so exhausted from Chuck E Cheese and a grumpy toddler that I was in bed by 9:30pm!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME!  I knew I was getting older but I thought I was turning 30, not 65!!!  Maybe I can use my 30th year of life finding more people to spend time with outside of work.  I mean, really, I'll drive my self absolutely crazy if I stay shut in much longer.  I need to ask for a babysitter every once in a while.  I admit that when people ask me to go out, I tell them I can't find a sitter before I even begin looking.  Guilt, maybe?  Who knows?

What I do know is that I'm still young.  Regardless of what age I am, I need to have a life also.  I need it to keep my sanity.  It's never too late to start improving your life and that is exactly what I am going to do.  This is the jump off point to a life much more desirable.  Financially, emotionally, socially...  This is MY year.  My big, special year.  I guess I don't need just one day to celebrate the life I'm creating for my daughter and I.  As long as I have her, my health and our love of cupcakes, I got a great beginning to something that will be magical!

In Cupcake news, for her party, I made the Vegan French Vanilla cupcakes that I absolutely adore!  For the frosting, I made a simple Cherry Buttercream.  Sorry, I don't have pictures but they were Princess Pink and oh so tasty!

Question for you - Have you ever been super excited for an upcoming birthday and end up being utterly disappointed?
