thankful thursday {link up}

{link up at the bottom of this post or over on Jamie's blog}

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) A new decade. I am thirty today. Yep... the big 3-0. And you know what? I am okay with this. Actually, I'm even excited about it. It's a new chapter in my life. My twenties were fabulous... I did some really cool things. And just think... I will do even cooler things in my thirties...


2) Margaritas. Part of why my birthday is so flippin' awesome is the simple fact that it is on CINCO DE MAYO!! Therefore... Today, I have two reasons for ordering a margarita... or a reason to order two margaritas... depends on how you look at it... one per celebration. Yes. That sounds right.



3) Starburst Fave Reds. Did you know that Starburst makes an entire bag just full of yummy red and pink flavors?!?! They do! I recently purchased a small bag of regular starburst at the airport... and as my girlfriend and I picked through the bag, fishing out the best flavors (pink & red), we were discussing how awesome it would be if you could buy a bag of only the good flavors (obviously the pinks & reds). Then just a few hours later, my fabulous friend came back from her lunch break and presented this amazing bag to me... Starburst Fave Reds. Love it.

Happy Birthday!!! I love your view on your thirties. And because you're so excited, that's how you know great things will happen. It's always more fun to celebrate than it is to mope. :D

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a fantastic day. At least Mother Nature has let up for a minute and you may get to see some sunshine today. I hope you get your Project Life kit - I got mine this week but haven't dug into it yet.

Yes, please on the margaritas!

2) Love your reasoning with the margaritas. They're my favorite drink, also.
