Birthdays, Tatted Mom Style

30 years ago today, Ronald Reagan was sworn into office as President, and Iran released 52 American hostages...

And, I was born. =)

Today I was given an amazing Birthday present! Cynthia over at Mom Blog Network let me know that I had been chosen as the Mom Blogger of the Week! Super stoked about it, so go check out their amazing site! I joined when I first started blogging, and have loved being a member! Thanks to the Mom Blog Network for choosing me, and The Inklings of Life!!

So, what does Tatted Mom do on her 30th birthday? Buy three different types of cakes (French chocolate bistro cake, New York Cheesecake and a regular birthday cake with buttercream icing), a large bottle of Moscato wine, and anti-wrinkle cream. Yeah, you read that right. I bit the bullet and bought some stuff to help me out a little. Hey, don't judge; I'm starting my life over at 30; anti-wrinkle cream is a staple in that process.

And I search for things to make me laugh so the reality of starting another decade doesn't hit me quite so hard. Yes, normally I love my birthdays, but this year.... well.... it's taking some effort to get into the birthday mood.

But this totally helped some. I found this on and just had to share. Yes, this is my kind of humor. This video made me almost pee my pants several times, and it doesn't matter how many times I watch it!!

So enjoy!
