Turning 16. My parents threw me a huge surprise party and all my friends were there. I can't believe that everyone kept the secret. I remember thinking how disappointed I was at school because it felt like everyone forgot it was my birthday. My parents even took me out to dinner. When the Chi Chi's waiters plopped a sombrero on my head I felt like crying because it was the first time all day I felt like it was my birthday. I got to drive the family home with my new drivers license. I'll never forget that moment of walking through the foyer and hearing and seeing everyone jump up and yell, "SURPRISE!" I screamed and ran back out. Once I recovered from the shock it turned out to be a wonderful party. It was one of the best birthdays and I'll never forget it.
Turning 21. Don't remember too much. Drank too much...I'm sure you can figure out the rest.
Turning 25. I had a nice adult dinner out.
Turning 35. Beautiful lunch with those that I care about the most. We celebrated yesterday and you know what? This lunch included a Sombrero yielding bunch of waiters singing as well...
I feel lucky to be 35. I feel lucky to have my 2 sons. I am comfortable with who I am. Yes, I wish I was thinner and I wish I made more money but for now I'm happy and I'm looking forward to what lies in between now and 40.
