My 29th {GOLDEN} Birthday - Big B-day Sale 5.29.11 // Party Planning (Vol. 2)

"Birthdays are nature’s way of
telling us to eat more cake!"
It's going be my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY on May 29! It will officially be the last year of my 20s and it's going to be a good one ... I can just feel it! So many people complain about turning another year older, which, to me, just seems like a waste of energy. One of my life promises is to embrace and love my birthday every year. (Yes, the baby photo is me -- summer of 1983).

I know what you're thinking. You're saying to yourself, "Well, of course she says that now, while she's still young!" But, who decides what is YOUNG vs. OLD anymore? Things are so different now compared with 20 years ago. When I was growing up as a young girl (in the early '90s), I would see women who were approaching 30 and saw two different stereotypes. One type of woman would most likely be married, have had popped out a kid or two, maybe have a part-time career and live an amazing full life of soccer games, family vacations and wine nights if they were really feeling crazy (the italics are for my sarcasm).

The other type of the woman was, dare I say it,
STILL SINGLE and approaching 30. She most likely lived by herself, had a standard or very successful job and came home to her cats, Schmookie and Eliza to watch an episode of ER to swoon over George Clooney.

As a young girl I was conditioned to think these were my only two options of what could happen to me by the time I hit 30. THANKFULLY, neither really came true. In my early twenties, I was dead set on finding the man of my dreams so I could settle down right away and have that picture-perfect family most women dream about. Each year has passed and that "dream man" (JT and I will hopefully meet some day) hasn't shown up quite yet and I have grown to be very content with that. My maternal clock that was ticking so loudly eight or nine years ago, has also died down to a faint murmur for now. I couldn't be happier that the path that I was given has allowed me to enjoy these years while I have them.

On my 29th Birthday I will be able to say:

"I quit my day job and have supported myself with my
own Etsy Art business (Fizzy Glassware) two years ago."

"I have been interviewed on FOX News."

"I have lived by myself for the last four years in
a tiny studio apartment and now I am 
upgrading to a townhome."

"I have auditioned for an NFL and NBA dance team."

"I have conquered my years of chronic pain and
now live a strong, vibrant life again."

"My friendships continue to bless me with the
feeling of love and support of a true family."

"I entered and won my first
Figure/Fitness Competition!"

It will be my golden birthday on the 29th,
woo hoo!! I want YOU to be able to celebrate with me
so I am throwing a {BIRTHDAY SALE} of $29 off
(listings of 6 glasses or more) for only 10 days!
(sale starts 5/19/11 and ends at 12:00 a.m. 5/30/11)

If I were to throw a party this year it would be a
Mexican fiesta theme. I will be going out with some
girlfriends to a tequila bar this weekend for some
"life-changing" guacamole and serious cocktails.
 I put together this Etsy Finds list for another fun
Party Planning Selection. Enjoy!
