Things I've Learned on My Way to 30 (otherwise known as my second annual 29th birthday)

The quest for the perfect pair of jeans never ever ends.

I was right back in high school: nobody ever really uses algebra.

You can be too old for some clothes.

There's a difference between a job and a career. And that difference can be felt.

My bra-less days (if ever there were any) are long, long over.

Even when you grow up, eating all of the Halloween candy in one sitting will still make you sick.

There's less reason to get embarassed as I get older. People are human, nobody is perfect. And who cares what they think anyway?

Moisturizer is very important.

So is sunscreen.

I'm still going to get wrinkles.

Having a baby doesn't really change everything. But it makes things a lot sweeter.

The world may never be fair, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying to make it that way.

Tattoos don't look that weird on grandmas.

I don't care if I'm too old for pigtails.

We'll never stop needing help from our parents. Especially if they can wield a chainsaw and a sewing machine with equal skill.

There's no such thing as enough shoes.

As much as I try not to pass judgement on other people for the way they live their lives... some people are just stupid.

80's fashion didn't look good then, and it definitely doesn't look good now.

There may actually be a heaven. And it's called Retirement.

Forever really isn't that long.

Happy Birthday, Kandis. This is a really good list. I hope learning this stuff wasn't too painful. I love you

Happy Birthday to my favorite eldest daughter. I am so glad our talks about IRA's were fruitful.
