It’s my birthday today! I am now thirty two years old.
I really wanted to throw myself a Super Sweet 16(2) party (OMG I just made a math joke!) in our new backyard, but since the house fell through that is now at the wayside. That’s fine. I have decided I will still throw myself a birthday party whenever we DO eventually get a house, and it’s going to be crazy, with ponies and a band and a new car.
OK not really. I just want to have an over the top Super Sweet 16 party like they have on MTV. Instead I’ll put out beer and homemade nachos. Everybody wins! Except the ponies. Poor, poor ponies.
I have decided (after all of your fun suggestions) that this is the year of Thirty DO. I am going to try to step outside my comfort zone more. I’m not going to be such a lazy homebody on my couch. Some of the things I plan to DO this year:
- I am actually going to *GASP* cook and bake more. FOR REALS Mike. I already cooked last week – I made spaghetti sauce from scratch. This is big for me.
- I will find a better house than the one we almost bought. I have to believe that or I will never get the heart to look again.
- I want to get Annie in dance classes. Girl has MOVES.
- I need to be better about exercise.
- Go out more with my friends. It’s hard to make time for friends when you’re a mom. I need to put my friendships first sometimes.
This list is subject to change. Hee hee.
Thirty two is going to be a good year for me. But I have to do my part to make sure it’s good. Hold me to it!!
Happy Birthday! I turned 32 a few days ago, I like the idea of 2 sweet 16 birthday parties! My goals for this year is to get through my first year of College! I start this fall in hopes of finishing in 2 years with a degree in nursing. (crossing fingers) I hope you have an awesome day, and good luck on your goals for this year!

Happy Birthday, Heather!
Love the maths joke, we always look for one on our birthdays. I was NOT impressed when I turned 32 though and said I was 2^5 – my darling husband said, “Yes, you’re 100000… in binary.” Way to make me feel like sharing the cake (not!).

Happy Birthday! Tomorrow is my birthday. I am trying to forget. lol
Happy, happy birthday Heather!
Happy Birthday Heather!!
Can I adopt the “thirty-DO” attitude even though I’m 33?
Though actually, you did inspire me to make up my own birthday motto after your “thirty-FUN” last year. I made up the attitude of “33: The Place to Be!” on my birthday. It’s about living in the now and appreciating where I am.
Hope you have a great birthday and a phenomenal year!
Happy June Birthday! Those sound like fabulous goals–I wish you every opportunity to fulfill them!
Happy Birthday Heather! It’s ok – I hear ponies are best for 35 anyway. Have fun!
Happy Birthday, Heather. May 32 be the best year yet!
Wishing you a very happy THIRTY DO birthday! Enjoy your day!

Kandi Ann says:
Happy Happy 32 year birthday. I hope all your things you want to do this year come easy to you.
Happy Birthday Heather!! I turned 32 in September….ya that means I’m dangerously close to being 33…but I LOVE birthdays and celebrate for a whole week so ENJOY your day(and week)! Fully LIVE IT UP!!
Happy Thirty Do, Heather! I am sorry the house fell through. I can tell you that the people I know who have had ths happen all found way better houses. Hoping you do, too.
About the house………research the school districts (betterschools.org…might be the website) and find your dream school district along with your second choice school district. Then when you look for houses, narrow the search down to just houses in that particular school district. Voila! You’ll find your ‘even better than your dream home’ home.
Happy Happy Birthday Heather! I’m a little past 30-do, but I will also try to get off my couch and get my butt moving!
Happy Birthday Heather!!!
Hope it’s everything you imagine it to be! Enjoy your day with Mike, Annie and Rigby!!!
Happy Birthday, Heather!
Happy Birthday, wonderful Heather!
Happy Birthday Heather! I love the idea of “Thirty DO” and I know you’ll have a great year

happy birthday I enjoy reading your blog.
Happy Birthday! Have a great day.
Happy Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
Your list should include: My friendships and cooking and living lif will absolutely not interfere with my blogging.
That’s my birthday wish!!
Will ride a pony and have a margarita tonight in your honor (well, not the pony part but I will imagine it if you will! Tee hee!)
De-lurking to wish you a very happy birthday!
You should put Annie in tap, I did it for 10+ years and she seems like the kind of girl who’d enjoy making all of that noise

Happy Birthday, Heather!
Happy Birthday!!! Love your attitude and the list! You can do it! Hope it’s a fabulous year for you
Y A Y H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y H E A T H E R!!
I turn 32 in August. Can I copy your 30-Do theme? I love it!!
Love the “32 DO” concept. As a parent I feel the need to “put myself out there” more than I used to, to move outside of my comfort zone and realize that if it doesn’t work out (whatever the “it” of the moment is) at least I will have a funny story for later. I was a pretty socially awkward kid and I wonder how different things would have been if I’d grown up around people who were more comfortable in their own skin. Now I feel like I owe it to my girls to be a good role model in terms of seeing life as an adventure. Happy Birthday!
Happy birthday Heather.
When my husband and i first started looking for a house, ill bet we found 10 perfect houses out of a hundred. Nothing worked out. It was heartbreaking. We decided they just werent meant to be because now we have a new construction home that will be ready in less than two months. Finally Karma has worked in our favor. I know you and Mike will find your perfect home. You will be happy the other one fell through.
Great DO! list Happy Birthday!
I think the year of Thirty Do sounds fabulous. Cooking can be fun! Even when you screw up it is fun! Seriously, until you have dropped the homemade pizza you slaved over on the floor (topping side down) and served it to your still encouraging but slightly green husband, you don’t really realize how much fun cooking really can be! And excercising is good too… especially with all the cooking. Happy Birthday Heather!
happy birthday to you!! ooh, does that mean we’ll see some cooking / baking tip posts? i could use them! love your hair posts! thanks!!
Rachel Langer says:
Happy Birthday, Beautiful Heather! Hope Thirty-Do is the best year it can be and that you get lots of sloppy birthday kisses from Annie, and less sloppy ones from Mike!
Mary Fox says:
Happy birthday Heather. We share the same birthday. So does Nie Nie. Hope you had a good birthday. I will keep my fingers crossed that you will get your wish for the “perfect” home for your lovely family.
Lots of birthday hugs to you.
Happy birthday to you, too! xoxo
Happy birthday!!! May it be a blessed, blessed year!
happy belated birthday keep on celebrating your birthday WEEK!
