Well, I did.
Since The Plague destroyed any chance of a happy birthday for me, I decided to change the date. So, I didn't turn 30 on March 29. No, no, no. I turned 30 on April 6.
What can I say?
I'm a mom.
How do I feel about turning 30?
Honestly, I feel like I never shoulda revealed my age on this lil ol' blog!
When I was 27, 28 and 29, I just flaunted my 20-something-ness like a proud little young-un. Now, I am kind of wishing I could lie about my age. But I can't. 'Cause you know the truth.
Can't change it. Might as well embrace it.
I celebrated 30 by spending an entire day all by myself.
It. Was. Amazing.
I slept later than usual, took my time getting ready and treated myself to a little shopping spree.
I desperately needed new clothes since my mom-bod is in a weird in between phase. Pre-prego clothes either don't fit well or look too "youthful." Post-prego clothes are too big.
Here's what I bought:
First, I racked up at Old Navy...
|Burnout Strip Tee|
|Mixed-Print Jersey-Linen Tank|
|Embroidered Gauze Top|
|Women's Perfect Khaki Shorts in Rifle Gray|
Annnd, I just wanna say that Old Navy is the perfect shopping destination for early 30-something mother-bears. Their clothes are trendy without being over-the-top. And the fit is ideal. In other words: no hoochie coo short-shorts. Thank God. (Nobody paid me to write that. It's just my opinion. It is also my opinion that nobody ---I mean nobody--- should wear hoochie coo short-shorts. Regardless of age, size, gender, etc.)
I also stopped by American Eagle looking for cropped jeans. HUGE fail on that front, since their "crops" fit me like pants. Unless you're 5'11"their crops are just bad, bad, bad. Thankfully, it wasn't a big fat waste of time, because their sandals were on sale. Buy one get one half off? Yes, please.
|LOVE these sandals!|
Oh, Target. You never disappoint.
|These crops by dENZiEN are amazing! The fit is excellent for a post-prego body. The rise is just high enough to conceal the muffin top without being so high that you feel like you're rockin' mom jeans. If you're a mom, you know exactly what I'm talkin' about.|
After I spent hours shopping all by myself, I sat on the patio at Panera and ate a bagel. All by myself.
Best 30th birthday ever.
