So, this week begins the last 7 days (well, 6 now) that I’ll spend in my 20’s. I don’t think it’s hit me yet that I’m about to turn 30. A lot of people have said that 30 is when a girl truly begins to become a woman and everything is spectacular. And last night, one of my friends confirmed for me (via Facebook) that I was right; 30 ain’t all it’s cracked up to be…
But, because I’m slightly narcisstic and enjoy celebrating my birth, I am excited to celebrate another year of life. Two of my really good friends are coming in town, and I have a PLETHORA of things planned. I started cleaning my house last night (I even cleaned out the bathroom cabinet-ok, maybe that’s more than you guys want to know), and this week will see me really completing some Spring Cleaning. I’m also going to straigthen my hair (GASP!). If you’ve earlier posts…(oh, wait, wrong blog). Well, if you’ve ever read my other blog The Natural Girl Diaries, you know I’ve had some issues with wearing straight hair in the past. I can say this is a one off thing. And my soror who has done my hair since 2007 is gonna do it, so I’m excited to see what she does…I just hope I can keep it straight for at least a week with putting mimimal heat on it.
Southern Mom’s family got together yesterday for our monthly family dinner, and one of my cousins called and had me on speakerphone while the family sang “Happy Birthday!” to the April babies. And even though it was my first time visiting this church, I did stand up while the congregation sang to the April babies.
All in all, Birthday Week has started off great, even though my allergies are starting to act up. I’m excited to see what else develops and what fun I’ll have! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
