It's official...I'm 31.

Grace was WAY more excited than me.

No longer just a newby to my 30's...I'm in now. Not wayyy in, but I am definitely in my thirties. Boog was sweet and planned a small get together at a local restaurant with a few family members & friends. Then we took it back to my house for cake and presents. I, personally, hate gatherings of any kind on my behalf, so I spent much of the night worrying...."Are people enjoying themselves?" ....."Does everyone need to get home?"....."Do they like their food?".....I don't know why I do that. I worry so much that my stomach was in knots after the night was over! But like I said, Boog was sweet after letting him know he never has to do anything like that for me - ever - again, I thanked him for the wonderful Calphalon knives and pots & pans he got me (along with my mother-in-law). And now I pray that 31 takes its sweet time before ushering in 32. I always remember that line from "Pretty in Pink" where her goofy friend says, "Why didn't God make us old and then we grow young?"......that would be fun, wouldn't it?

Cute shirt!!! Did you get it at old navy or some cool place in TX?

I always thought I would be so sad when I turned 30 but I've kind of embraced the 30's. (But in my mind I'm still 25).

Last week - I sort of had a mid life crisis moment where I realized I'm turning 35 this year. THIRTY-FIVE!!! I think because I ran into one of my guy friends from high school in the gym and I was thinking how we used to ride our bikes when I was 11 and now we are almost 35!!! It started freaking me out.

Happy 31’s brithday from a stranger’s heart---

I know I could travel a long way through billions of blogs, but would never find anything like yours that is so funny and give me such warm-feeling—like running into an old dear friend. (I do think I hit a jackpot to have stumbled across your blog!) I dragged my honey of 13 years to read together your blog, and all agreed” life is fragile- handle by sharing a laugh with Flo’s blog”. I am truly thankful to you for putting your telent and wisdom ( I know that one’s brain white matter reaches its peak at the age of 50’s-that’s called wisdom, and are you just in your 31? amazing!!) out there!

Keep your adorable blog journey- can you at least reassure me this?

Happy belated birthday! I turned 31 last November, and I'm still in denial. Saturday night Lane and I went to the restaurant that we ate at on our first date, and I said to him that I couldn't believe I was TWENTY-THREE on that date! Thinking back, my twenties just flew by.

Looks like you had a very fun birthday. I was thining of you on Saturday. We were in Llano at my brother in laws river house. You look super cute at the party. I too worry about everyone else at gatherings and always wish I could just relax. Never do and probably never will.
