Not over the hill yet, but the air is getting thinner

So last Thursday was my 30th birthday.  It feels a little strange leaving the 20’s behind, but I’ll admit it wasn’t nearly as depressing as I thought it would be.  When I came home from work, I was surprised to find Natalie had decorated the kitchen with streamers, balloons, and confetti.  After a delicous home-cooked meal, made by Natalie (of course), I opened my presents then we ate icecream cake (mmmm, my favorite).  Natalie spoiled me with a bunch of new shirts and some new shoes, so now I won’t dress like a homeless person.  She also got me the Ghostbusters DVD, which she refers to as “the bowling ball gift” because she really wanted it (if you’re not sure what a bowling ball has to do with it, you’ll need to watch more Simpsons).  After the festivities we went to a play at the Hale Center Theater (Natalie got season tickets for her birthday, so I suppose you could think of it as a celebration for her birthday too).  It was a lot of fun and helped me keep my mind off the fact I’d breached the 30’s.

  1. You could’ve fooled me, Eric. You don’t look 30 at all. (but then again, I always forget that I’m almost 28….yikes!!) Happy birthday! Glad Natalie made the day special. She has been planning things for awhile.

  2. Ha! You’re too kind, Jeni. The picture is just too far away to show all my gray hair. 😉 Isn’t it funny how we never look older, but all the 20 year-olds keep looking younger and younger?

    Natalie has a real knack for going above and beyond on my birthday (and keeping it on the DL). Yet another reason why I love her so much! 🙂
