They say it’s your birthday


Well another year has gone by, just like that! I am actually a huge fan of birthdays. Even though they usually never live up to my expectations (they are REALLY high lol), I still think it’s fun to feel special one day a year. So in my 34 years of life, here are some random things I have learned:

  1. I can’t do life without Jesus
  2. Laugh as much as you can
  3. Laugh at yourself.
  4. Choose your battles, in marriage and parenthood
  5. Life gets better with age
  6. Trying to please people is pointless
  7. Eat cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if you want!
  8. Break the rules sometimes
  9. Exercise is a must for my mood
  10. I could nag for my profession
  11. A good cry does wonders
  12. Be a good listener
  13. Love your mother, cause you’ll understand once you have kids!
  14. Don’t give a flip what people think
  15. Dance!
  16. Love isn’t a feeling most of the time, it’s a choice
  17. Just do it. Don’t wait for the perfect time. Get out of your comfort zone
  18. Be kind
  19. Buy the shoes! You’ll regret it if you don’t 😉
  20. It WILL pass
  21. Sometimes you gotta get alone and figure it out
  22. Cherish your relationships. PUT IN EFFORT. It’s not supposed to be one sided
  23. Enjoy the little moments
  24. Give
  25. Slow down. Don’t always be in a rush
  26. Gossip and you will be gossiped about too
  27. Go to church
  28. People will judge you no matter what you do, so do what you want
  29. I am an A+ procrastinator
  30. Donuts.
  31. Late at night is a really good time to talk about really serious stuff…. lol
  32. The look on someone’s face is not a giveaway of their mood (still working on this one)
  33. Forgive. and then forgive again! People aren’t perfect.
  34. Be a cheerleader to the people in your life.

Today I get to hang with some really awesome little ladies and bake cupcakes! Then later this week my friend is coming to visit me and we get to have a night out with my amazing friends!! This is going to be a great year and I’m excited for what’s in store ♥

I’ll leave you with a photo that is classic Mary as a kid 🙂
