The Big 2-7

    Well, here it is, my birthday week. I plan on, and have actually already begun, to celebrate ALL WEEK LONG! It started last night with a great surprise dinner and some incredible girlfriends- I had a BLAST! And, I was totally surprised; I had no idea. In honor of my birthday, I thought I'd note some signs of my getting "older":

 - I refuse to see a movie that starts after 8PM. It's just too late. If it doesn't start until 8, it won't be over until almost 10, I won't be in bed until 11, I'll be tired and grumpy the next morning, etc., and etc....the 8PM movie just ain't worth it.

- I found like 7 gray hairs last week and immediately ran out and bought hair color and dyed my hair.

- I've been called ma'am on more that one occasion, or Mrs. Silengo. No, not acceptable. It's Micah and don't call me ma'am if I'm only 5 years older than you. I mean, that's almost disrespectful.

- My husband let me pick out my next car. I was dead set on an SUV. After test driving everything I wanted I decided on a minivan.  They're just so much more comfortable.

- I said I would never have a kitchen full of roosters; have you seen my kitchen? Let me count....9

- If I have more than one drink I don't sleep well. When it comes down to it, I'd much rather have a full night of sleep than a third second drink.

- I now blog. That's not something the young hip 20's are doing, it't something us people in our late 20's do.

Strangely enough, turning 25 was hard on me. But turning 27, Bring.It.On. I am SO ready for 30. I mean, I have two kids, a white fenced back yard, a minivan coming soon, and I blog! I am ready for my thirties. Twenties are so overrated.
