For the first time since my 18th birthday I spent my birthday at home in Indiana with my parents, sister, and her family. My birthday is December 8, which is also the birthday of Nicki Minaj and Terri Hatcher. I was happy to be with the family when I turned my official "scary age" of 27. For years I have felt that 27 meant that I was no longer young and was a full-fledged adult. When I said to my mom, "Oh dear, 27. Next stop: 40" she said, "Yep, pretty much." Gaaaaaaaah, time is going too fast! Dylan (and Snooki, if you take notice of my hair) helped me blow out the big 2-7 candles. Here's to a great year!
