Another Year Down, Many More To Go

Happy birthday

Every year on April Fools Day I become another year older. Even though I tell everyone I am just turning 22 again, I am actually in my mid 30’s. This year was one more year to reflect on what I have accomplished and what I still need to accomplish in my lifetime.

I had a pretty good day, and never expect much. My sister and brother in law took me out to lunch at Fuzzy’s Baja Tacos, (my new addiction) after I had played games quietly on Facebook most of the morning. I had not seen my sister for a couple weeks so it was great to just sit and catch up a bit. Since today was also the last day of the State Fair, I wanted to spend most of the evening with my kids and hubby just riding rides and eating fair food.

After the first ride I was not feeling so well, so I just let the kids ride all they wanted. Then after walking around the South Texas State Fair grounds for a while I realized that I really did not want anything to eat either. None of the unhealthy fried foods seemed to be appealing to me anymore. So I came home and relaxed some before my tribe call with 2 other bloggers.

Last year I had a wonderful birthday cake from Rao’s Bakery. This year I just wanted a new bottle of perfume (since my daughters had used all of mine). My hubby and kids bought me a bottle of Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy.

I am off to another year of being 22….

    Belated happy birthday Jessica. I am glad that you had an opportunity to bond with your sister. I am turning 30 this July, and unlike you that don’t see fried foods appealing anymore, I am still making an effort fighting the urge and temptation.
