It's my birthday! (In one hour)

Welllllllll, I'm part of the new decade club. I'll acknowledge it, but from now on...I won't tell people my age anymore :)

Here I am dressed up as Sailor Moon with teddy bear Batman :) just before Armageddon Expo about two weekends ago...kinda similar to Comic Con in the US! I didn't get to celebrate Halloween this year, so this was my little bit. I'm still young at heart.

I read this blog entry a few months ago, and it helped me become NOT as terrified of getting older. I HIGHLY recommend reading it for those of you who might be bummed out about birthdays. I need to adopt her attitude.
Happy Birthday To Me by MouseVox
Here are her beauty secrets, she's seriously blessed with some good genes! I think I need to invest in this eye cream of hers :)

More thoughts and milestones on this birthday:
I still listen to and love the same albums I loved when I was 18.
I have paid off 75% of my university loans. YEAAAAAAAAH!!!
I can't believe I'm still friends with my dears from LNC & MOC :P
I am married.
In XXX years of existence, I have travelled to 29/50 States.
Visited Canada, Mexico, Spain, Fiji, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand
I have always considered time with family and friends to be extremely precious and value this more than ever before.
Life is too short, and I'm beginning to see this. This is why I fear getting older. I must absorb each day, take in and appreciate every minute we are here and make it count for something good.

I already know this year will be a HUGE year for my husband and me. I'm looking forward to it. Even if we plateau or fall, there will eventually be nowhere else to go but up! :)


  1. Happy Birthday, Jen!!!! You've accomplished so much thus far and I know that this next decade will hold even more amazing things for you. Much love from Denver!!!! (and a glass of champagne or two!).

  2. I admire your lust for life. <3

    Thank you for always being so patient with me. I worry that I will lose friends, but I don't worry about losing you. Your words always make my heavy heart a little lighter.

    You're a wife. This is still so nice to say, so nice to know. We are dreamers and this is how we live "So, my little Amélie, you don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go get him!"

    You are beautiful, talented, kind, and I feel so lucky to know you. Cheers to you, JV.

    Happy Birthday my dearest furthest friend. I cannot wait until we are on the same continent. From New York, with love.


  3. Happy Birthday!! I hope your day is wonderful!! Congratulations on a life full of positive life experience!!


  4. Happy birthday Jen! Hope you had a wonderful day and all your dreams for this new decade come true! :)

  5. Happy belated birthday!!!! Hope it was a great one :)

  6. Whoa, this is way late but happy birthday!!! (I've pretty much given up on trying to read blogs during the week with my work schedule, sadly.) I hope you had an awesome day! I love telling people I'm 30, haha. Maybe I'll feel different when I get a little farther into this decade! You really have done a lot in your life so far. I wish I could say I've visited even ONE other country!

  7. Belated happy birthday! :)

  8. Thank you for all of your lovely, lovely birthday wishes :)

    Dearest L,
    That is one of my favourite quotes from the movie! You are the sweetest.


  9. i was so obessed with sailor moon around 11-13. My and my brother used to watch it religiously. It was funny as on Braden's 21st his girlfriend made a slideshow and the background music of a few of the slides was sailormoon. hilarious.
    you make a cute sailor scout. we went to comic con in Austin, but I wasnt too dressed up sadly. I loved all the dressed up people but there was no sailor moon! We needed you there :P

    you do not need to worry about anything like eye cream. you look like a young spring chicken. you wouldnt know you are 30, not that 30 is bad at all! though it seems to be something people talk up a lot. you look way younger than that anyway :P hope that is a good thing haha prob insulting you here. people get so upset about age. its all about the heart dear!


Leave a comment & say hello! If you have one, I'll check out your blog too. :)
