Yes, I DO feel a DECADE older...What the What?

Okay, CRASH let the cat out of the bag and told everyone is was my 30th Birthday on Saturday.

First of all, someone once told me that you know when you are old when you stop wanting to tell people how old you are...

Ummm...

With that reasoning...I feel old.

I don't know how or when I told Crash my age...but I was going to try and let it slide this year...not announce it. Which is SOOOO unlike me if you know me at all! I LOVE letting everyone know that they need to shower me with gifts and make the WHOLE week leading up to my birthday as SPECIAL as possible.

But turning 30...kinda wanted to let it slide. Why this birthday is harder I don't know? I think Crash nailed it on the head though when she said something like you feel a DECADE older even though you are only a YEAR older...it's probably because you go to 2 something, into 3 something! Goes UPHILL, yet DOWNHILL from there. But I still LOVE Crash...and deep down I really really loved all the attention! Thanks!

I think Facebook also likes to tell secrets...because it let people know my birthday also even though I TRIED to figure out how to keep that info private! Someday I tell you why Facebook is from the Angel and the DEVIL.

Anyhow...I'll be my sweet attention grabbing self next year...

I did have one of the BEST birthdays ever...which made the transition MUCH, MUCH easier.

My sisters and Mom--pictured below:



Took me to LA for the DAY, or I took them!!! Wasn't that nice? We were celebrating My birthday, My older sisters birthday, and My Mom's birthday...who selfishly has hers the day AFTER mine...that is NOT enough time to relish in my BIRTHDAY wonderness before she stomps on my parade EVERY year except for a LEAP year...

I know, my life is rough...I take donations.

I am going to do a BIG OL boring picture post and tell you the highlights of that fun trip...going from SKANKY motel to falling asleep before 10:00pm. If that doesn't say OLD I don't know WHAT does!


But I just wanted to mention ONE highlight now...Mariah from MANICMARIAH took time out of her day to come say HI and meet me!!! Guess what is cool about that besides the fact that I DID meet her and her oldest daughter?

...it was that is was HER BIRTHDAY also! We share the same birthday!
And she is as FUN as she writes, and her and her daughter have some of the most gorgeous eyes.

I felt robbed of time with her because I had to continue on with my sisters and Mom...so NEXT time MARIAH...I'm taking you out and we are going to talk about all our DIRTY secrets...seriously THANKS! (P.S. And next time bring your Grandma...for the LOVE!) :) OH! And did Chris cook a good dinner? And did you get really FATTENING Ice Cream? Because you are way skinny and you need it! :) lol!

I should mention that Alyson also had her birthday on Saturday, (but it's hard because I envy how hot she is)...even though she is my BLOG cousin and we share the same birthday, Crash is my BLOG twin and we DON'T share the same birthday... so figure that one out? Happy Birthday Alyson...who is WAY hotter than me and lives in a WAY cooler place than me...literally...and whom I've become very good friends with. HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT DAY!

More On my birthday in LA...later...LOVE YA'LL and thanks for the HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES...it makes a girl feel good about herself ya know?

And P.S.--Evidence from the TWO photos above...but I'm sick of having HOT friends and HOT family members...so if I meet anybody else from other blogs...make sure you have been hit with the UGLY stick

Thanks...I would appreciate that!

Love,

SHELLE

Happy belated birthday!

30 wasn't bad for me, but 35 has been icky--my age doesn't get rounded DOWN anymore. It gets rounded UP to 40. ACK!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Welcome to 30-something, my friend!!!!! So glad we have the same birthday, but so sad we couldn't spend it together. Seriously, let's celebrate in July. We will just extend our birthdays by 5 months, no biggie!

So glad to have found you and so looking forward to meeting my blogging cousin, who shares my birthday!

Barbaloot said...

Happy Birthday again! I think you and Alyson are both hot. Okay?
But if I ever meet you I'll be sure and not do hair and make-up...that's kind of my usual anyway:)

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Ugly stick - you crack me up!

Happy Birthday! And if it makes you feel better I am older than you (by almost two years!).

And please, you are freakin' cute my dear!

Happy belated Birthday!!
30 isn't so bad... wait until you turn 40! LOL

King Fam said...

I have the same idea about birthdays beginning a week before and ending when I feel special enough. I call it brianneapoloosa

King Fam said...

p.s. Facebook didn't tell me it was your birthday. Happy late birthday.

Lara said...

Happy Birthday! 30 turned out to be a great one for me, but my next one is 35 and I am not looking forward.

Kate said...

That is the one thing I hate about facebook... the random people wishing you happy birthday - the ones you never hear from then al of the sudden it is your birthday and you have like 300 lame 'happy birthday' messages on your wall.

Glad you had a good weekend! Birthdays are a week long even in our family and I am looking forward to my birthday week coming up soon... (it will be my first 29th b-day.) i am excited!

again, I am glad you had a good b-day trip!

Shannon or I will gladly let you borrow our ugly stick for your friends. :)

T said...

great - I thought about tracking you down with a treat - but now I'm afraid of getting hit with a stick!!! and this coming from the "hottest mommy blogger" - or at least the one that I voted for... and since whomever I vote for... ummm... oh nevermind...

Hope it was a happy one, and that you got all the facebook greetings from the long lost exes you could possibly want!

binks said...

Please don't hit me with that stick, I've got enough trouble in that dept.

Besides, you don't look a day over 25.
Okay, I was being nice.
26 & 1/2.

♥♥♥♥

ps - how cool that you met Mariah

pss - I voted for your niece like 10 times! ;)

shannon said...

I so cannot believe my sister just threw me under the "ugly stick bus"! Gese Louise!

Happy Birthday! Glad to hear you had a great day!

The best years are yet to come! Trust me!!

Di said...

Happy B-day Rachelle! Sounds like you had a great time. My birthday is a day before Ambree's so my birthday celebrating will be short-lived too from now on. Hope you have an incredible decade in your 30's :)

Heidi Ashworth said...

Clearly you are the beautiful sister.

ukyankoz said...

I totally know what you mean about turning 30 - it was my turn last June, and ugh! I never used to mind birthdays and now I reeeally don't want to turn 31! But I agree, you don't look a day over 25!

Mariah said...

Ummm Hello I'd like to introduce you to my chins... WHAT THE HECK??? Please DO not let Chris see this picture I look like a monster.

Okay, I'm done complaining, it was so good to meet you and your family and thanks for letting me intrude. Yes, next time we will spill the dirty secrets.

Now photoshop me at once!!

April said...

It looks like you had a fun birthday! We need to get together with T and celebrate. We can all bring sticks and beat each other! I think you need more of a beating than me! Besides you are WAYYY younger than me!

PJ - Our life said...

John Deere Mom said...

Happy B-day! How fun you met Mariah! And to go to LA? I wouldn't even know what to do!!

The Me/ The Wife/ The Mom said...

OK...as someone who is at the tail end of 30 I have to tell you....YOU ARE JUST A BABY! Can't wait to hear about your trip! We want details!!!
