There, I've said it. I finally turned thirty last week. 3-0. I don't know how else to put it, because I don't feel any different. I do hope I'm a lot wiser though. As for the 2 other descriptions, I don't think I even remember how to flirt anymore and I don't feel like I'm thriving at all. -It's more like struggling. haha! I have been on this quarter life crises before and I'm back again. I wonder how long people usually get out of this??
Anyway, last year I opted not to have a party and I just celebrated it with my parents. But this year, with our new house and that fact I haven't seen my former colleagues for quite sometime after resigning, I decided to have a small birthday dinner / housewarming party.
I used to make a big deal about about my birthday, but as I get older, I'm slowly realizing that it doesn't always have to be all grand. Spending it with friends and having fun is all that matters. Of course, not all those who are invited will show up and it can be a little disappointing but it happens. You just have to enjoy the moment.
I served my homemade salad, tiny pancake hotdog squares (It was supposed to be a hotdog wrapped in pancake but after 2 hours of trial and error, I gave up.), Spaghetti, Carbonara, Fruits and Cakes for dessert. For drinks, I bought my favorite Gossips Sweet Lips Moscato Wine. My guests arrived on time which was a surprise. I wasn't ready yet, so I panicked a little and wasn't able to take a proper photo of the food that was served.

This is the most decent picture of the food that was served that night.

My fave! Gossips Moscato Sweet Lips
(I can drink one bottle alone, but I won't because that's just sad.)
For music I created a birthday playlist on Spotify which we played while having dinner. For entertainment, I downloaded a couple of Just Dance videos on YouTube (since I don't have an X-box or Wii)
We ate, we drank, we danced. It was a fun night even though it ended earlier than expected. I do hope they enjoyed their stay.
The early birds!
This is us socializing! lol!

P.S. I still need to improve on my dinner party skills. There's always next year!
