What 31 Looks Like

As some of you know I celebrated a birthday this week... I"m the low-key Birthday type, but I did get to eat lunch with a friend and our many kids, pick the dinner (like every night ... LOL!!), pick a dessert and eat dinner on the birthday plate:)

One of the kids took a picture of me- close up- and I couldn't believe all the wrinkles I'm getting.....

I"m getting OLD!!! LOL!!!


But as I learned from my mother's experience that you rejoice with each day and year you've been given.... wrinkles and all, I guess:)

And what keeps me from running to the salon and spa at every chance????

(although I'm really, really in need of a haircut!!! Oh, it's bad!!!)



Tending to my boys...
Nate carried high to get the bird's eye view of all the sibling fun...


and the tree salesman.
(aka Chris hauling around the corn plant we pulled from our front garden...

probably from popcorn kernels... LOL!!)

Keeping up with the girls....
Scootering;)



And taking their babies for a ride.



The theme this week at you capture is Get Outside.... and we HAVE been totally enjoying the semi-cooler weather:)

There are so many great products on the market nowadays :) Try an exfoliator for your skin, and a natural product for moisture. A dermatologist will recommend Cetaphil. I know women in their 50's that moisturize with barely a wrinkle. Never too late to start...

Ok, I now know someday when I have kids that a kid size gator exists. And they will have to have one. That is too cool.

Happy, happy birthday! You sound like me....starting to notice some of the same facial issues as I approach 32. Blah. Oh well! It is life, I suppose.

Jenny said...

Happy Birthday! You look great! I have noticed some wrinkles on my face as well.

Well I think you look adorable.

I didnt even know all those wrinkles had names :-)

I dont notice many wrinkles on me yet... but Im sure they will pop up over night some time soon!
