A week from today will be the last day I have as a twenty something. My twenties have been great, in fact I may just blog about that decade of my life but another time. When turning thirty was months or years away I imagined I would have a big surprise party maybe even something formal with fancy hors d'oeuvres carried around on trays, after baby was born the hors d'oeuvres became hot dogs and the trays turned to paper plate but a party non the less. As it grew closer and I seemed to grow farther away from friends I wanted nothing to do with any of it. What good is a party if you fear no one would show or you have to throw it for yourself? Now I am feeling some regret. Turning thirty is a big event and they only let you do it once (otherwise this would be my 26th birthday, part 4). Is it too late? Could we pull it off in a short amount of time on our budget? Would it matter to me in ten years? I haven't had a birthday party in years and have in the passed vowed to never have one because of previous attempts failing miserably. i need to make a last minute decision and hopefully not regret it either way. How important is turning thirty?

Friday Night

The Zam Fam went to "Party on the Pavement" last night at The Harvest and had a great time. It was humid and hot but that didn't matter when you have a free hot dog, snow cones, music and lots of good friends. We had such a good time we decided to keep the fun going when we got home. We all snuggled in Mommy and Daddy's bed with some goodies and a movie. Than, if you can believe it, Samuel decided he wanted a bottle! For those of you who know our bottle struggle we had given up on it a while ago. But, he started making sucking motions that looked like he was thirsty (with all the sweaty and drooling he must have been) so we decided to give it a shot and put about 2oz of water in his bottle. He liked it....go figure. We will try again tonight and see what happens. Other than the bizarre bottle incident we all had a good time snuggling and watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Samuel feel asleep on his own and to no surprise after such a fun filled evening AND the fact that he had a playmate over all day as well.
On another note. I've decided to take my blog in a new direction. I will continue to randomly blog about family stuff but want to try some blogs about product reviews and couponing. We will see if it happens, I am usually in the Internet via cell phone these days and not up for typing out a blog post with my thumbs.
