Happy Birthday to me! I just celebrated my *mumble, mumble*-th birthday and it got me thinking about the whole birthday/aging process. When I was a kid, I looked forward to getting older: 13, sweet sixteen, 18 and adulthood, 21 and legally drinking…then it seemed kind of all downhill from there. My hubby kindly pointed out that our car insurance went down when we turned 25, so “YAY!”?
In any case, I was wondering about how all of you view birthdays. Which brings us to this week’s 3 Things!
Embracing your age? I will admit that one of my good friends and I have been joking about celebrating all birthdays after 30 as anniversaries of our 30th birthday. This year was officially my 8th anniversary of my 30th birthday. That being said, I’m actually okay with aging because not everyone gets the privilege. I’ve also taken to rounding up my age when people ask how old I am. The best case of this was when my hubby and I met a couple on a cruise and I told them I was 45; I was 36. My logic is that while I looked good for 36, I looked AMAZING for 45. Perspective, ladies.
Best gift ever? My hubby and I just took a trip to Colorado and stayed at The Stanley Hotel. The kid that read Stephen King under the covers with a flashlight was happy to check an item off her bucket list.
Buttercream or whipped frosting? If it’s from a bakery, then whipped frosting. If the cake is homemade, then buttercream all the way. I’ve had one too many wrong buttercreams from bakeries–they think butter flavored shortening is the same as butter. Monsters.
Your turn, we heartsters! Cut and paste the following into the comments and tell us these 3 Things:

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.
