Yesterday was my birthday! I LOVE birthdays. I think it is cool that we give everyone a special day once a year and celebrate the day they were born. Doesn't it make you feel special??? Anyway, I have been talking about my birthday non-stop since last week when we were on the way to Orlando. It got to be the joke of the weekend. "You know, if someone had a birthday, I bet we could break line." "I wish I knew someone who was having a birthday soon, then we could get free cake." "Oh, it's going to be your birthday? I didn't know." Justin and Forrest teased me unmercifully because I always found a way to work my upcoming day into conversation. Anyway, yesterday was the big day. I was actually totally busy at work--a custody hearing in the morning and municipal court all afternoon. I did get to wear my new pink coat that I got at the outlets and I got lots of compliments! My dad also took the family (meaning ALL of the McCords-minus my brother) out to Kobe, the new Japanese restaurant in the mall. Mom made me a cake and everyone brought me presents (hooray) and we really had a great time! The restaurant gave me a decorative pineapple and sang to me. It was great fun.

Happy Birthday to me!!
Anyway, the point of this post is that turning 27 made me think about what all I have accomplished in my life. I mean like really mundane things, like learning to walk and talk, and how to ride a bike. Mastering long division and sentence diagramming. (why you need to know how to do that, I'll never know). Learning to drive and going to prom. Graduating as valedictorian. Joining a sorority. Graduating with a double major and getting into law school. Graduating law school and passing the bar. (that is a lot of graduating). Living in Italy for a summer. Getting engaged. Buying a house. Getting married. Adopting pets. Learning to cook. Starting a career. Taking great trips. All of these things make up the person that I have become now. Even though 27 isn't really "old", when I think about all of the things that I have done in my life, it seems pretty amazing, even if it isn't that amazing of a list. I wonder what will happen in 27 more years?? All I know is that right now, at age 27, I am very happy and blessed. I have a great family, husband, 4 crazy pets, and the best friends a girl could ask for. I am very grateful for all of the opportunities the Lord has granted me and will take full advantage of every new one he throws my way!
See? Happy Bbirthday indeed!!
