Thirty Somethings

I just turned thirty! (thus my absence lately..I've been livin' it up!)  My fabulous husband planned a surprise weekend for me and flew some of my family in for it! It was so much fun and I have lots of great memories to carry with me! Anyway, I am still a little scattered this week...which you will see in this post. :-) I thought, since I've just entered a new decade, that I would share some insight into my life thus far. I warn you though, it might not be that thrilling...

Here we go...

1. Time goes by faster, the older I get. What feels like forever is really just a blink. 

2. I should not take my self too seriously...except when I'm eating chocolate and watching Pride and Prejudice..that is a very serious moment in my life. 

3. I may not listen to God's voice, but  I am going to listen to someone's. It's not possible for me to make a choice without the influence of something or someone. I  can choose what that influence will be. 

4. Life is not a sprint, it's a marathon. A long, hard, out of breath, in need of water, marathon...BUT there is a finish line, so it's worth the run. 

5. You really do reap what you sow. Be careful. 

6. Grace is free, I cannot earn it. 

7. I will never stop loving chocolate. Never.

8. I love history because it illustrates beautifully the hand of God at work in our world. 

9. Sometimes, I blame God for things that He gave me the power to control. My free will gets in the way a lot. 

10. Being a wife changed my life. 

11. Being a mom changed my life. 

12. Southern Gospel music is part of my DNA. I can run but I can't hide. 

13. I am grateful for my childhood spent overseas. I saw a lot of the world thanks to the Army.

14. I sometimes try to take my mess back from Jesus. Whom the Son sets free, is free indeed...no need to wallow in my mess. 

 15. My hair is longer at thirty than it has ever been..I'm proud of myself for being patient with it.  

16. I have not given my Kindle a name but I should because I love it...a lot.

17. I laugh at everything. Tell me your cheesy joke, I promise to make you feel good about yourself.

18. I have the best friends in the world. Really, I am blessed.

19. My middle name is Mounett.

20. Paris is my favorite place on Earth.

21. I am becoming a home body the older I get.

22. My opinion is not the only opinion..and mine could, maybe, probably not...be wrong. ;)

23. I am learning to play the guitar. You're never to old to learn something new.

24. I published a book before I turned thirty! Have you read it? (My God Box, on Amazon)

25. I love fashion, but I could care less about name brands. I shop sale racks!

26. I want to learn to sew.

27. I had a "husband list" before I got married that I kept tucked in my Bible. True story. I had a list of what I wanted in my husband. God filled them all and then some.

28. At the time I met my husband, I was pursuing a degree in Counseling.

29. Do you feel like you know me a little better?

30. Just think, if I were not thirty, this list would still be going.

Happy Wednesday friends!
