Last Year In My 20’s

Today, I turn 29. 

Why does that sound so old?! 

I know it’s still young and I’ve been told that your 30’s are pretty remarkable. I guess I’m just wondering where my 20’s went! However, every birthday I have had for the past few years I have loathed. So this year I took a new outlook on turning 29. I’m going to celebrate the last year of being in my 20’s. Why not?! I could be depressed and claim I’m going to die soon… but the bottom line is that I’m not and I have had a pretty fantastic life up until now. So I want to celebrate that and make my last year of being in my 20’s that much more incredible. 

I started off the celebrating by going out with my best girls on Friday night - hanging out with the ladies who have been there through all of my 20’s and have spoken so much over my life in the past 10 years. It was wonderful. I wanted a night of dancing and fun and that’s exactly what we did. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thanks to my sister-in-love, Katie who grabbed my camera and documented what she could of the night!
Started off the night with some drinks then went to one of my favorite spots in West Chester, Landmark and had a fantastic dinner. 
 We then wanted to get some picture of the group, but the restaurant was so dark so we ended up taking our food back to our cars and while we were there Katie just started snapping away. (i.e that’s why most of our pictures are taken in a parking garage.) My friend Cara was ready to dance and apparently so was this random stranger … so they decided they would bust a move out there in the open with absolutely no music. It was hysterical. 
 I then had a breakdown. (You see... you can’t do anything with me without having me go all hormonal on your butt). Don’t get me started… I’m an emotional freaking roller coaster and my poor friends had to deal with it. I felt SO stupid! However, they recovered my “falling apart self” pretty quickly by loving on me and then making me take silly pictures. I got a picture with each of the girls…
 And then decided I was ready to hit the dance floor. 
 However, we didn’t do much dancing. We had a few drinks, took a few more pictures and then around 12 I kind of pooped out. CAN YOU SAY OLD?!?! Honestly, it just showed me that I would much rather go to one of my good friend’s house; dance it up there with people I know (instead of feeling like I was a piece of meat, because frankly I'm too old for that) and hanging out with friends. BUT… I did like dressing up. I think all girls like to dress up, so that was pretty awesome! 

This has gotten to be too long, so I’ll tell you about the rest of my weekend later this week. 

I did however want to say my 20’s have been pretty epic. I got married to the love of my life, bought our first house together, and made a family. I had two amazing little boys who light up my life and make being a mommy the most amazing thing ever. I have had the most amazing friends and family to make my 20’s that much more memorable! I went on so many wonderful trips with my bestie’s and had opportunities I never thought I would have by working at my last job. All in all; my 20’s have been amazing. I couldn’t be any more thankful and I’m hoping that this year will be just as awesome, if not better. 

Here’s to having the best year of my life!
