whoa, check out that hair


ahhh my parents should have given me some hair product as a child - no wonder i don't use any now - LOL. and i can see now where noah gets his chubs from!

yes, today is my birthday. and i know some people dread this day but to me it is a day to celebrate LIFE! when i hit 30, people asked me if i was depressed or if i wanted to be 29 again. the answer was a straight flat out - NO.

i can honestly say this 30s thing has been the best decade of my life so far! i still have a ways to go to finish up this 30s thing but seriously, this was when i became who i only dreamt about 10-15 years ago. the times i was unhappy about my looks, my future, my talents have long washed away. don't get me wrong, i still have lots of stuff to work on but i got rid of a lot of the toxic stuff too. things that were dragging me down. things that made me a shell of who i am.

i can't WAIT to see what this year and all the years after this brings!

so in CELEBRATION, i am giving out a special bottlecap RAK - guess how many years old i am today and for all the ppl that guess correctly, i will put your name in a draw for a gift that is for the number of bottlecaps as i am old (hope that makes sense- LOL). here is a hint. i am not 30 and i am not 39. there - your odds of getting the right again are pretty darn good.

i will wrap up this RAK party in 2 days. so good luck!

Well, I'm going to guess that you are 36. Not because you look 36 but because I'm 36 and since I have really no idea your age I thought it was a great number.

I totally agree with you about turning 30 and beyond. It only keeps getting better and I wish the same for you.

Happy Birthday C. You've changed a lot in the 8 years that I've known you. You're still kind of crazy like that 24 year old I met back in Pampa. (For whoever wins the RAK, I like regular or peanut M&Ms, since I gave a big hint about C's age.) I'm happy to hear that you have become who you used to dream about being (Mrs. D) LOL! Just kididng, I really am glad that you're so fulfilled - you deserve it and are an amazing person. Love you.

Okay I just had to post and say you were (and still are) stinkin' cute C! Love, love, love the hair! Don't enter me into your RAK, b/c you are already too nice to me!!!!! I will say you are 31, because you simply don't like any older than that! Have a great day my friend and don't forget to get a little celebrating in there with all your hard work!

Happy Birthday, Caroline! I guess I have been stalking for quite a while now, and decided to come out of the shadows to wish you a very happy birthday! Savor each and every one! I agree, the 30's were pretty great! I am going to guess that you are 32, a very fine age indeed. :-) Rock on!
