Happy Monday friends. I hope this weekend was a good one. We celebrated “Cotter Style” this weekend. You see, it’s a certain someone’s 30th today. Yes, 30 on 30th! The hubs is 30 years young. Actually, his birthday was yesterday New Zealand time. Lucky duck, he gets to celebrate twice.
Anyway, the hubs is not big on birthdays but I like celebrating so we comprised. He let me spoil him. That makes both of us happy. We may next have a lot of money or fancy things, but birthdays are all about who you spend it with. Right?
I did my best to look my best and treat the man well.
Quality Mexican food, plenty of Mexican martinis, and a good fun post dinner. Hint hint.
A cream filled donut for dessert. Ha! Easy to please you might say.
And I just have to give my two cents here. Yes, the big 3-0 is big! I’m not far behind him. But to me, 30 is not old, it’s YOUNG! It’s a perfect age. You are wiser but not old. You are young but not a youngster, you are cool but not too cool.
When I was younger I thought I’d have two kids by age 30. HA! I don’t think so. I’m not even close to being settled. But that’s the life I chose when I married this man. Chasing the dream, living paycheck to paycheck, wishin’ on a dime, and just going for it. Heck ya it’s scary and freakin hard, but we pray to God every night for provision and guidance. At least we pursuing it, no regrets here.
Happiness may come and go but JOY is made complete just by living life with each other.
You tired of my corniness yet? Nah, never, right?
Okay, let’s move on to another important part of this big 30 day! It’s April 30th which means FOODIE PENPAL day!
This month I had the privilege of participating in Lindsay’s Foodie Penpal and today is the big “reveal” day.
I had lot’s of fun doing this. The penpal I shopped for was Jen from http://www.jennpesce.com/. So fun to shop for her. Lots of TEXAS goodies were sent her way.
My foodie Penpal was Heather from Hezzi’s Books and Cooks.
She spoiled me with foodie gifts just in time! I used the GF baking goods to make a bday cake for the hubs. Perfect!
And that homemade apple butter she made… ya… it’s gone. I used a spoon and basically ate it in one sitting. No shame there. Thank you. HEATHER!
So that’s it folks. Lots of celebrating today.
30 is a good number. Cheers to 30 and finding your JOY in life!
What are you en-JOYING today?
