30th Birthday and Favorites

Joey and I went to see Brother #2 and his family. We went to pick up pizza at the local café, and as we waited, we played “The Favorites Game” with our eldest niece. My 30th birthday is today, and I was going to write “30 Random Things About Me”. I started the list and realized that 30 things is a lot to share! Instead, I figured I would play the Favorites Game with my 10 year old self. It was easy to do so since I had a diary that helped answer some of these questions.

Here we go!

It is strange to see how close some of these answers remained! Already at that age I knew I wanted to be a writer, as well. And I do have a fondness for a lot of the previous things mentioned.

So, here's to another 30 years of life!



  1. KITTIES!!!!

    I like how kitties, blue, halloween, blue, and pizza have all stayed the same ;)

  2. This is very cool! Like having your own time machine! It is nice seeing that the 'you' you were at ten , is still the 'essential you' at 30!
