Tonight Rene' and I went to eat with Melanie (pictured above) and Shane to celebrate Melanie's 30th birthday. We have been friends since I was 12 and she was 16. Now I am 26 and she is 30!!!! What???? I feel like the time has flown by so fast, I mean it seems like yesterday we were riding around in her old car listening to the radio without a care in the world. Now we have jobs, husbands, she has 2 small boys, and all sorts of other "grown up" responsibilities. When did this happen? When did we grow up? I was just sitting at the table tonight thinking about how much our lives have changed in the last 14 years. Sometimes it is still hard for me to believe that we're not teenagers anymore. Does anyone else ever feel that way? Like you went to sleep one night as a kid and woke up the next morning as an adult? I feel like Tom Hanks' character in "Big"! I wouldn't trade anything I have now to go back to childhood though. I kind of like being a grown up. I guess.
Happy 30th Birthday Moosie!
