Happy Birthday To Me!

Google Birthday Logo
Yesterday, I had my 30th birthday.  I have now entered a milestone year and can look back on past achievements and future endeavors.

In the past year, I’ve bought a house with Justin, gotten married, assisted Justin in obtaining his permanent residency and we’ve celebrated being together for 6.5 years.

Coming up are even more advancement in my career, we will be initiating surrogacy, and I have another ten years until I hit the big 4-0!

Google helped me to celebrate yesterday with the image above.  We had a low-key evening last night with Justin studying after a nice dinner while I painted even more of our fence.  Mom and Dad came down for the weekend as well and we had a nice time together.  Tonight, Justin and I went to HuHot, where the Grill Warriors treated me to a Happy Birthday and a huge oil fire on the grill for my “birthday candles”!  He had to do it a second time because I didn’t make a wish on the first fireball!

Happy Birthday to me

Well, I’m a week late on my birthday post, but whatever.  Last Wednesday (June 9), was my 26th birthday.

Justin and I celebrated pretty simply – we went to dinner at Red Lobster and then went home.  Sounds like a good day to me.

Some other items that have happened recently:

  • This week I passed my 600th mile running with Nike+
  • Last Monday (the 7th), I ran my second half-marathon test run.  Unfortunately, it was three minutes longer than my last attempt at 1:51:17.  Not horrible, but not good in my opinion.  The very hot weather recently is definitely effecting my running ability.
  • I have now dropped to 168 lbs.  This means that I have passed the 40 lb mark on weight loss!  This is very exciting for me as I haven’t weighed that in a very long time.  And how did I do it?  By just running 600 miles over 9 months and eating better.
  • I installed the GM build of iOS4 to my iPhone 3GS.  It’s been pretty nice so far since I’ve had it for about a week.  I have consolidated all my installed apps into folders squished on one page.  The multi-tasking is very intuitive and I’ve found it very useful.
  • This Tuesday I pre-ordered the iPhone 4 from AT&T.  That was a massive mess thanks to AT&Ts incompetence at being able to handle the huge number of people who attempted to pre-order.  My order wasn’t put in until Wednesday morning so we’ll see when I actually get the phone.  Can’t wait though.
  • This weekend there is a baby shower for my Corey and Danielle and Zach.  Zach is doing great and it’ll be great to see him again.  Also this weekend is a Mother’s Day/Father’s Day/Keith Birthday party with the family.

I think that covers everything.  Not going to make promises on when I’ll post next as I am bad at keeping them, but hopefully sometime soon.
