So.. I turned 30 Yesterday

I had the big 3-0 yesterday.  I gotta say it doesn't feel so bad.  I thought I was going to have a big revelation or something but not really. I still feel like my old self. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I don't really act my age.  I'm still a huge kid at heart and I seem to project that a lot in the way I act and my likes.

I had a pretty good day.  My husband took me to an Antique mall I've been wanting to go to for a while but was always afraid to do so with the baby since those places always seem to be cramped and I didn't know if I would be able to maneuver with a stroller.  But it actually was pretty roomy and they had carts which made it so much easier. I didn't purchase anything but I did see a stainless steel Clarinet that I cried over but had to leave with the holidays being so close it was something that I just could not splurge on. I played clarinet all through middle school, high school and the two years I attended college. Everyday I ask myself why did I not keep with it since it was such a huge love of mine. I think I'm going to make it a goal now. Try and get back into it.

On my way to the Antique mall, I received an email that my new Embroidery/Sewing/Quilting machine had arrived. I ordered it on black Friday from a local shop and I was not expecting it to come so fast. But it did and it's absolutely beautiful. I got the Janome Memory Craft 11000 SE. It's a wonderful machine. I've been playing with it since last night. The embroidery part is easy. The computer aspect of it is not. My husband figured it out for me and tried to teach me. I though I had it down but I got on it this morning and was not able to figure out 1/2 of what I wanted to do. I'm not very good with computers and technical stuff so I'm not surprised I'm having such a hard time with it. I named her Audrey.  I'm planning on making some vinyl letters so I can decorate her with her name. LOL!

In the afternoon My husband ordered pizza got me a cake/cupcake mix thing. He decorated it with 30 candles. It was pretty funny how much light it projected.  He turned the lights off and the room lit up pretty good.  The kids sung me happy birthday and they helped blow out the candles. Then I just went back into my craft room to figure the new machine out and played with it until I went to bed.  All in all it was a pretty good chill day.
