My darling husband turned the big 3-0 on December 15th. Whoa! He's eight months older than me, so for a good portion of the year I get to tease him...although I will say, I am not that into numbers. I've known 30-year-olds who act 50 and 40-year-olds who act 21.
I know a lot of people get nervous about the big milestones, but Mr. Howard and I feel honored to reach each milestone. We have no regrets...nothing we wish we had done before we turned 30. We are infinitely blessed in all that we've accomplished and experienced. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I think my husband is JUST as stinkin' hot as that day I met him at Rafael's birthday party when he was 18. Seriously.

We have been so busy with Christmas, selling our home, building a new one, daycare, work, family, etc. Whew! We just come home at night and collapse we're so tired. On Friday I showed up at daycare in the morning to drop off the kids and was about to leave, when our providers said, "Did you remember Connor's present for the gift exchange?" *&#@ Not only had I not remembered, I hadn't even remembered to go buy one!!!! It was awful. I felt like such a horrible mom. I have never picked out a kid's gift so stinkin' fast (did I mention it was Pajama Day at my work and I was in blue flannel pj's?!?). I wrapped it and drove back to preschool as fast as I legally could!!
One huge thing I did was cut my hair! I have had long hair for as long as I have been married. I think the last time I had hair this short was early on in college. While I think that long hair looks best on me, I just couldn't justify the 40 minutes it was taking me in the morning to blow dry my hair. Plus, at night it was tangling so badly that I had to wash it every morning. It's been SUCH a nice change and who can beat the 4 minutes it takes for me to blow dry it now?!?
