I honestly didn’t think turning 30 was going to be that big of a deal. Why should it be? It’s just another year, right? So, why does everyone keep telling me, “30 isn’t that bad. Don’t worry, your 30’s are your best years…” Blah, blah, blah. Okay, I didn’t really think it was that bad until everyone started emphasizing how “not bad” it was. Clearly it must be bad if everyone keeps saying that.
For no reason I started crying on my way home from work today. Well, not for no reason. But the reason was just because I was thinking about being 30. I was actually thinking that on Monday I have a Dr’s appointment and when they print my paperwork out, under age it will say: 30. It will be right there on paper in black and white. Maybe I’ll luck out and they’ll print it out tomorrow, when I’ll still be 29.
It could be worse. I could be turning 30 and be in the same shape as I was last year on my birthday. That would be bad. Oh, and by the way, I didn’t reach my weight loss goal. I weighed myself at the Y on Wednesday and I have lost 27.5 pounds, my goal was 30. So, this depresses me and then I eat Halloween candy. That seems to be very counterproductive in reaching the goal.
On one good note, parts of me aren’t even 30. Seriously, my boobs are only 2 months old. That’s gotta count for something.
Okay, so onto Birthday treat #2: Cupcake Cones!
Place ice-cream cones in muffin tin:
Make cake mix according to package directions:
Fill cones about 1/2 way with batter, do NOT overfill!
Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes until toothpick in center comes out clean.
Cool on wire wrack.
Frost and decorate!
Transporting them can be tricky as they are quite top heavy.
However, I found a great idea on the internet. My lovely husband went and got two new pizza boxes for me. I cut circular holes into the boxes and then placed the cones in.
Somehow Lainey lucked out and it is her snack day at preschool tomorrow. And I lucked out because there are exactly enough cones for both classes!
