What if I don't wanna be 20 again?

As I approached my twenty-tenth ;-) birthday many people tried to encourage me with words like "30 is the new 20!" I don't know what their college days were like but I don't want to be 20 again! I was awkward and underweight and trying to find myself. I do miss having time set aside to practice though. And late night Papa John's and TV with Beth, one of my BFFs. If I could just have that part, I'd totally do 20 again.

To celebrate the beginning of a new decade in my life I had a party. I mean, really--what better way to do it? The theme was game night, as this is my favorite pastime. We sat around and talked, listened to music from Arrested Development*, watched the extended pilot from said show and ordered pizza. Once we actually got to the game part of game night (Apples to Apples, one of my favorite games) the pizza arrived. But we had fun! And I think we got through 1.5 rounds of Apples to Apples.

All in all, a good time was had. And I have photographic proof here! Enjoy.
Jeannine and Anne are all smiles!

*One of the best shows on the planet, in my humble opinion. I own all three seasons thanks to a ridiculous sale on Amazon a while back


  1. I totally think I'm addicted to Apples to Apples now, thankyouverymuch. :-)

  2. I am glad you had the perfect birthday for you!
    Who needs to relive their 20's? I certainly don't lol. :P

  3. H: Hahaha, you're very welcome. I've been addicted for years so it's only fair that I share it with friends. :-)

    Nephy: I don't either!! Although 30 isn't looking too good to me right now, what with the random aches and pains and daily naps....

  4. Happy Birthday! Wow...I can't believe how *young* 30 looks to me now! Enjoy it! The 30s have been an interesting decade for far the hardest, but I think I've grown the most in this decade than in any other. I don't know if we ever really "arrive" to adulthood!

  5. Hahaha--thanks, Kimberly! I'm also starting to question this whole "adulthood" myth myself. :-D
