I'm 29 today.  I can't believe it.

 Is this really my last birthday in my 20s?  Next year might be a bit rough; although a man in Bagel Cafe made me it known to me that life begins at 30 (he overheard me having a conversation with a friend).  That actually might be true . . . 30 could mean parenthood for us and that would be the beginning of a whole new adventure.

Naturally, I took the day off today.

This is what I have planned:
Movie - The Odd Life of Timothy Green seems suiting and looks charming (I have a coupon for a free ticket on my birthday . . . I'm going by myself and I'm okay with that.  Has anyone else ever seen a movie by themselves? I've never done it!)
Shopping - Have to use all of those birthday discounts!
Dinner - Grimaldi's free birthday pizza!
Treats - I'm going to eat my heart out with pastries and cupcakes because today is a day where I can.

Here's hoping that this is, in fact, My Best Year Yet.


  1. yes, 30s really are so great! i've enjoyed them a lot. it's like you've finally figured out a few things in life and you're comfortable with where you're at. i hear 40s are even better for being comfortable in your own skin...but i'm not ready for that number yet! happy birthday! good things are in store!

  2. ok......besides the typical HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :) How in the heck "Mrs. Coupon Queen" do you get a free birthday movie and shopping discounts and free Grimaldi's pizza?????? I need in on these secrets!!!!!!! Had we been in town you wouldn't have had to go to a movie solo because I totally would have been tagging along! Blue's don't like movies solo. :) That would be something a yellow would do. :) lol. :) Did you have fun????

    AND - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! :) :) :) :)

  3. I hope you had a great birthday! I've never been to a movie by myself either, I should try it....alone time is always healthy.
