I turn 31 today! So it's not a "biggie" birthday I know. But you know what feels great about 31...is that I fit into a dress I wore when I was 18 years old. That's an incredibly awesome thing about being 31.
You know what else rocks? When you're 31, you get to roll around on your floor and be goofy with kids and it's OK.
Being 31 means I've been with Hubby for 13 years. That's pretty cool.
Being 31, I've already settled into a career. And yes, folks...I can't deny it any longer. While I'm hating my job right now...it's a career. It's career money and career responsibilities and it feels like I'm a full blown grown up!
It's also the 10th anniversary of my 21st birthday...and what an awesome birthday it was (no pics of this...no one must ever see the evidence...).
I'm 31 and was excited to go to the gym yesterday. I wasn't excited to do that at 18. I was excited that my 1 mile "run" was less than 15 minutes.
I was excited that once I finished my 1 mile and did my weights I realized that I had only worked out for 45 minutes so needed to do more so I hopped on to the elliptical to do another 10 minutes and the stretching machine. 31 year old MandaPanda loves the stretching machine. 28 year old MandaPanda never would've gone back for those 10 minutes
31 years has finally brought me a better sense of "me" and I feel more confident and less socially awkward than I have in years.
Yep...being 31 is shaping up to be pretty good all in all. Happy Hump Day everybody and Happy Birthday to Me!
