...and the winner is...

Thank you to all who entered my giveaway! It was fun to read all of the comments - thanks for all of the encouragement. I know 30 will be great!

The winner of the awesome 13 going on 30 DVD is shannonjason who said:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!My 30th wasn't so bad...still hanging onto it until Nov 30th when I'll be 31.Best Wishes and thanks for the great giveaway!

Congratulations! I will be contacting you by e-mail shortly.

Here are some of my thoughts about turning 30 that I shared on my family blog earlier today (with a few modifications):
Why I loved my 20's -
I finally figured out who I am and what I want out of life. I feel like I really gained my testimony in my early 20's.
I met and married Nathan Wall. Looking back at that experience, I am so grateful for Heavenly Father who guided us to each other. We honestly barely knew each other when we got married, but we are so compatible it is ridiculous. He is my best friend - and isn't he gorgeous!?

I landed a great job that ended up being a huge blessing for our family and a great career for me. I know that Heavenly Father had a hand in this as well.
I was blessed with two BEAUTIFUL children. I am so grateful for the privilege of being a mother to these two special spirits. I love them so much!
We purchased our first home. We still love it!
Why I will love my 30's -
I will be able to live life and make decisions with the wisdom/mistakes of my 20's. Hallelujah!

My kids will not be teenagers yet! Owen will turn 13 about 3 months before my 40th birthday!

My kids will start to grow up and participate in things. Scouting, soccer, basketball, piano, dance, etc. They will also both be baptized in the next 10 years.

We will (hopefully) have more children. Our plan is for at least one more.

Nate and I will have our 10th and 15th wedding anniversaries. Some exciting milestones!
Hmmm...after careful consideration...I think my 30's are going to be okay!

I was sad when I moved from my
20's to my 30's. However, hanging out in the 30's has been awesome! Since we don't have a choice . . . we have to enjoy where we're at.

Loved your post and pictures! I'm glad you focus so much on GRADITUDE for what you have!!

Happy B-day!
