thirty freakin' five


that would be me today.

i still remember when i thought thirty something was a tv show about older people. well i'm that older people now.

funny thing is now that i'm here...i feel like the party is just starting instead of winding down.

have a fabulous day, mine will be busy. ;)

Happy Birthday! I'm featuring your lovely shop in my weekly post today!

Happy birthday! You share a birthday with my youngest son--except he's only 3.
It's funny how perspective changes, isn't it? When I remember when I was a kid I thought I'd be too old to enjoy New Year's Eve going into the year 2000--I was only 33 that year!

Ana said...

Happy birthday Vanessa! You should actually watch "thirtysomething" now that it's out on DVD, and even it's 20 or so years old, you have no idea how you will relate to it!

Pink Princess said...

Happy birthday ! I am your age but turned around ;) (53)

Tatkis said...

Happy birthday and have a nice day :)
I had such a feeling at my 30th birthday - life just seems to start!

Best wishes,
Tatyana

Carla said...

Have a wonderfully blessed birthday! Don't worry, there are some of use who are older and know exactly how you feel.

Gene Black said...

Happy Birthday! I will tell you that 40 isn't fatal and even 50 is final! I think it just gets better.

Sarah said...

elise said...

Today i turn 25- happy birthday to us! i feel like people might finally take me seriously as an adult, even though i've been married 6 years, have a 3rd baby on the way and have worked since i was 15. ha!

ah well, age is never what we used to think:O)

amanda said...

So this explains it! I've always loved everything you do and now I know it's because we're B.F.Fs (Birthday Friends Forever)! I'm the big 34 today. Happy Birthday to us!!!! Have a great one!

april's craft nest said...

happy birthday! i will be 53 in less than two years and i know what you mean. i thought 35 was old...well it sure does not feel like it! ps you look great!

Carmen @ Life with Sprinkles on Top said...

Happy Birthday!!!! I just turned 35 on the 5th. I know what you mean! 35 *used* to see old to me. Now, not so much. ;) Have a great day!

Needled Mom said...

Happy birthday. You are right and it gets even better!

Sourkraut said...

Happy Birthday! Funny how your perspective on age changes as you get older. I'm nearing 30 and realize that ain't as old as I once thought it was.

Kimberly said...

Welcome to the freakin' club.

Happy Birthday... you look gorgeous, Dahling!

Lexie & Jeff said...

Happy Birthday! I agree, lots of fun to be had-it's not that bad!

Ashli said...

Happy Birthday Mrs. V & Co! You don't look 30 something, nor do you look old enough to have those four cute kids!

Chris said...

So glad to welcome you to the 35 club. It's actually quite fabulous. The best part, I care much less about what people think of me, and care more that they know what I'm thinking about.

Mindy said...

Just remember I'm always almost a year ahead of you. ;) I'll be 36 in January. It's not so bad. In fact, I like me at 35 better than I liked me at 20.

Amanda Joy said...

Happy Birthday! I look forward to 35 because it means my husband will finally be done with school and established in his career. Only nine more years:)

traceyjay said...

Tiffany said...

happy birthday, v! i love your picture! i hope i look that good when i turn 35! :) hope your husband got you something good.

Phyllis said...

Happy Birthday. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a fabulous day!

Mauri said...

Happy Birthday! Last year when I turned 35 my mother in law told me I was half way done. "Half way done with what?" I asked her. "Half way done with your life," she lamented. What? I'm just getting started, the first 35 years were just practice and training, now I'm ready for the fun to begin! Have a Wonderful Day!

Katie said...

happy birthday!

Christie @ A Lemon Squeezy Home said...

Happy Birthday!!! Hope your day is GREAT!

jabeybaby said...

Happy Birthday!

Char @ Crap I've Made said...

Ha ha ha!

There's something about turning 35 that requires the use of an f-word in the middle. I believe my bday post this year was titled thirty frickin' five. LOL!

Happy birthday!

Heather at Happy Chippy Junk said...

OOHHHH Happy Day!!! Hope you have the best birthday YET!!

Bonnie said...

I have friend that just turned thirty-fine! That is you Vanessa...so fine! Have a great day and you are right there is no winding down for many many years. I am not even thinking about that yet and I am 63! Happy kid birthday, Honey!

Love, B

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday! I am looking this one in the eye- I turn 3-5 in January... so I think I should get 35 cupcakes... or one a day for 35 days. You should have you some cupcakes too! :0)

Rachel Berry said...

Welcome to Club 35!! It's not all that bad!!! Just think of how wise and wonderful we are now!

:)Rachel

Anna Elledge said...

Happy Birthday!! I don't know you, but your blog makes me laugh everytime I read it!!

Holly said...

Happy Birthday! Don't worry thirty eight feels no different than 35, which felt no different than 34...to me. Enjoy it!

LeAnn said...

Happy birthday!!! I'm glad the party's just getting started--you have so much to look forward to! :)

marisa said...

Deb said...

Happy Birthday! may your day be awesome :)

Shari said...

I'm right there with you on the age thing, and my husband just made everything worse when he informed me that I was technically old enough to be a "cougar." That's his fun little nick name for me these days. The joys of aging! Happy birthday!

Rhonda said...

Happy B-Day a little late!

LOVED your comment about the thirtysomething show----- I can hardly remember that because we were like 16 when it was on tv.
