Happy Birthday to Me!

Yup, Today I'm 28 years old. I'm really bothered by this. So far in my twenties, I've enjoyed my birthdays, 20 was great, I really enjoyed 23, I turned 24 on my mission, I was engaged when I turned 26 and I had my first beautiful child at 27... The twenties have been good. But 28, now that's a problem. For one, its WAY too close to 30. I guess it just says to be "Hey! Grow up and be that adult you've been masqurading as for 8 years!" I feel the pressure to be mature. Yup, I've got mixed feelings on this one.
















Anyways... For all my mixed feelings, today has been pretty good. I got presents this morning. Doug bought me the ninth season of Frasier & the first season of Ugly Betty ! Woo Hoo! I also bought me a new red diaper bag & a small digital camera to take on trips with my birthday money (thanks Mom, Mom & Dad Croft, and Grandma & Grandpa Croft!)











Doug and I had lunch together at Subway and after work he's bringing me flowers and tonight we're ordering chinese food.

Tomorrow we're having the Sister Missionaries over for breakfast and a party. One of the sisters is going home on Thursday and the other's birthday is Friday. So its a Double Birthday/Going Home Party. It should be fun. I've made Quiche for breakfast.

I also made my own birthday cake for the party tomorrow. Now if you're wondering why I made my own cake and Doug didn't make it for me, its because I enjoy making & decorating the birthday cake, so its my present to me. Its a chocolate cherry cake...



I hope it tastes as good as it looks. Its Chocolate Butter Fudge cake w/ Cherry frosting in the middle, frosted with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting and Topped w/ Cherry frosting & Cherries. Mmmm... I'm on a chocolate cherry kick lately... We're serving it w/ chocolate ice cream.
Anyways, I'll post more pictures tomorrow. Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes... Even though I'm not loving 28, I'm loving my birthday & I'm thankful to have such wonderful family & friends to share it with!!

I see no reason to be concerned about pressure to grow up or, for that matter, to be concerned about growing up at all. Very few of us ever feel more than about 20-something anyway. Just keep on going strong, having fun, and enjoying life.

I still have a hard time remembering that I'm over 20, so I totally feel you on this one. Way too close to 30...

30 is not that bad! My body feels 90, but that could just be the whole pregnancy/child birth experience.
