Wow, 30! Who would have thought? When I think back to when I was a child 30 was ancient! I cannot believe that 30 is here, and while it seems SO old, I guess it's not actually ancient! Aging, of course, does not even phase Ryan. He is not at all bothered by the fact that we are getting older. I, on the other hand, am completely freaked out by aging. I guess that is the difference between being male and female. Males seem to age much better and become more distinguished with age; while women do not age as well. Of course, this is just my opinion, I am sure many of you would like to argue this with me.
When I was younger, I would always picture myself as being so glamorous by the time I was thirty. I remember thinking I would wear sparkling clothes, live in a gigantic house, and drive a shiny convertible car! It is funny how our desires change as we get older. I am sure Ryan pictured himself as a professional baseball player or something, but I think we are both happy with our "alternative" lives!
I think he had a pretty good birthday. He and I spent last night in Salt Lake (Yes, all the way in Salt Lake City!) We went to the Jazz game and then stayed at Little America Hotel, which I would recommend to anyone, it was pretty nice. While we were at the game, people came in and turned down our bed, laid out bath robes, and placed a chocolate mint for each of us on the bed. I digress, but I thought it was kinda nice! Before the game, we were going to go to Ryan's favorite, Rodigio's, for dinner but Ryan decided he wanted to try a little dive called The Red Iguana. It came highly recommended from some friends. It turned out to be really good, even though the area is not great, and the outside of the building looks somewhat shady. The food, however, did not agree with me. But I have never been able to tolerate spicy food; and let me tell you, walking into the place I could smell the peppers!! Not much of a wild party for one's 30th birthday, but neither of us are real wild people, so it was perfect for us!!
