In 30 days, I turn 30.  Seriously.  How the heck did this happen?  I still feel about 24.  I still refer to my college friends as roommates, and we talk about the college days like they were last year…not 8 years ago.

Anyway…for the next 30 days, I have decided to do something each day that makes me smile.  It might be something for myself or something for another person.  Today, it was both.

I treated myself to a Cinnamon Dolce Latte, via Starbuck’s…yummm.  And then, look closely at this picture…

Nope, not at that cute little bugaboo, but the top of that red car behind us.  I got their drink too.  I felt giddy when I pulled away.  I wish I could have seen their reaction.  I wonder if they passed the favor along?  I wonder if they noticed the strange creeper pointing their camera phone at them through the back window…

So, 30 things to make me smile in 30 days.  I won’t post everyday, but will post a progress report at the bottom of my other posts.  Hopefully this will make transitioning to 30 a bit easier.


5 Thoughts on “30 to 30

  1. That’s a nice way to welcome in the change of decade! I hope you have a great 30 days, and 30th birthday!

  2. I turn 30 in 29 days, so I feel your pain! Your idea to do 30 things to make you smile is a great one and you picked the perfect way to start. Thanks for the inspiration to do some fun today too!

    I am turning, oh my, gulp, 34, in a few months and I clearly remember 30. For me, I just wasn’t into it and tried my darndest to ignore it, I MUCH prefer your method. 🙂 In fact, I may try something similar as I approach mine in the new year…..especially since I am feeling dreadfully behind in a lot of ways.
    Saying hi from BloggyMoms!

  4. Love it (buying the person behind you’s too) Since you wrote about birthday’s and age..have to tell you about a friend of ours…her name was Blanch. She did not look or act her biological age. When she was in her 80’s mind you, she was still a sharp dresser and was as articulate as any 30 yr old you would have ever met. She is one of my role models. my mom (who is almost as old as blanch) still has the youthful attitude and giggle of a 16 yr old..she too is an inspiration to me. don’t let any body tell you 30 is get’s better, it really does

  5. Thats so sweet and such a great idea I can’t wait to read all about the things you do. I feel the same way I still can’t believe I’m 27 I feel 21. lol.
