Thirty, Flirty & Thriving

Last week (Jan 26th) was my 30th B-day. You remember when you were little 30 seemed to be so old? Well I'm there now and I am pretty sure I am not on deaths door quite yet. In fact, I don't plan to have my midlife's crisis for another 10-20 years still.
I had wanted a larger George Forman grill, because on our old one I could only cook one hamburger paddies at a time so we would have to eat in shifts. This new grill is the largest one they make (144sq in), outside of the outdoor BBQ grill. I broke it in on Sat. night by making Elk Burgers (the Elk was a gift from Cory's boss, not like I normally have that on hand).
This is Phoebe desperately trying to rewrap my gift up. She was so distraught that I took the princess wrapping apart.
After I took Phoebs to the Dr. for her H1N1 shot (we also weighed her there and she was 19.12 lbs with 2 shirts and a diaper still on) we stopped and grabbed McD's for dinner. I had been craving their $0.89 hamburgers for over a week.
For my "cake" Cory got Cold Stone Ice cream cupcakes. Look, one cupcake for every decade of my life. By the way they were excellent cupcakes! I had been dreading this birthday for awhile, but I just have to remind myself I guess its better to be starting up the hill instead of under it.
