My Thirtieth!

So, I never blog about me, just the kids. But, as you can imagine that is mainly what I do ALL day long so you really do know what I'm up to if you know what they're up to! And with all of the other birthdays and engagement going on, I never blogged about my thirtieth.

Justin planned my birthDAY for me. It was a full day too! Justin is so good at planning fun things for me including awesome trips. Anyway on July 1st, he dropped the kids off at his parents' house while I got a massage. It was awesome. I just had her massage my back, neck and shoulders. Holy cow, did I need it! I think after being pregnant, breastfeeding and then carrying a kid around all the time, a woman's shoulders and neck need some major loosening. After that, Justin picked me up and we went to Jason's Deli (yummy). If you know me, you know I LOVE sandwiches and could live off of them. People at work make fun of me because I still take sandwiches for lunch just like in school. More about work in a minute. So, had a turkey wrap and then we headed to see "The Hangover". Funny, but I enjoyed "Knocked Up" a lot more. Justin then had reserved a room for us at The Ritz in Buckhead which is where we stayed on our wedding night. Man, are those beds comfortable! I'm surprised I even got out of bed the next day in order to enjoy brunch and shopping. But, I'm glad I did.

Justin took me shopping for the day! It was so fun. I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, "Do you work off commission?"


"Big mistake, HUGE, well I have to go shopping now." Anyway, just had fun picking out clothes for myself and not worrying about who was hungry or if someone needed a nap. It was so nice. We then had a wonderful dinner at Atlanta Fish Market. This is one of my favorite restaurants. It was a full 24 hours of fun just for me turning 30! Thanks, Justin for planning such a wonderful day. Below, I am wearing one my new shirts. And yes, Mom, I got my haircut.

Anyway, in other "Jennifer" news, I am trying desperately to get back in shape. I did a boot camp, wait, I take that back. I tried to do a boot camp back in April but at the end of the second week, sustained a stress fracture in my ankle which I proceeded to walk around on in Disney World for three days. OOPS! Dr. told me he would've cast me to my knee if he knew my follow-up X-ray was going to look like it did. So frustrating for me because now, everytime I try and go walk for exercise, the dang thing hurts. Of course, tripping over toys and catching my balance on it doesn't help. Justin keeps telling me to give it more time. Well, more time=out of shape=longer it takes to get back in shape because of aforementioned birthday. Not to mention I cannot pointe my foot like I used to and I enjoy pointing my feet. I would love, love, love to put a pair of pointe shoes on right now and pirouette around the room. I miss ballet a lot somedays. Wish I could do it again but now...I think this stress fracture makes me feel old. To sum it up, I have/had a broken ankle and a bruised ego.

Work, hmmm, hasn't really happened. I've worked twice since going back. Which, was the point of me going back to the Atlanta campus because I knew I'd be called off more which would mean being home more. Some days I wish I was working more but for the most part, I'm happy with what I have. I have really enjoyed the summer with Brice and Anna. I kind of don't want school to start because that means the weeks go so much faster. Brice needs school though, that is for sure. The kid is bored and understimulated. So, that has been my "thirties" so far. Hope you enjoyed catching up.

I don't think I ever knew you were a dancer. I miss it, too! I danced for 16 years! In middle school, it was my LIFE. We should have a girls day and go to the Nutcracker sometime. That has always been my favorite ballet. Miss you lots! Maybe I'll see you someday soon!

Happy 30th!!!! I had mine last year and it was so fun! The baker of the cake is Cecilia's. They actually don't really have a store but if you eat at the Last Resort downtown, they sell her cakes and you can get a slice for dessert!!!
