You guys. I’m turning 30 this month. The big 3-0. I will no longer be able to say I’m in my 20’s. So what better way to celebrate than with funfetti cake, right? You can never go wrong with sprinkles in my book.
So… 30. I have super mixed feelings about turning 30. It’s the end of an era for me, well decade. I had a blast in my early 20’s. Graduated from college. Got my first real job. Got married. Added two dogs. Bought a house. Had 2 kids and became a stay at home mom. And had two pacemakers. That’s a lot of change in a short amount of time. A whole lot of change with some major life events. All in a 10 year span.
In a way, I kinda hope things slow down a little bit in my 30’s. I’m ready for more relaxing. Or will that have to wait until I’m 40 since there’s no such thing as relaxing when you have two active young kids and a house to take care of and run?
Less rush, more fun. That’ll be my new 30-year-old mantra.
Adam turned 30 a few months ago and still hasn’t really come to terms with the fact that he’s THIRTY. He does 30-year-old “old people” things though like listen to soft rock. Soft rock. For real. Like, my dad listens to soft rock. Every time I turn on my car after Adam’s been using it, soft rock is on the radio.
I make fun of him so bad for it and tell him he’s so old since he listens to soft rock. It’s a joke but he’s not a fan of being called old. He likes to remind me that I’m almost 30. I like to remind him that almost doesn’t count.
P.S. remember that time I made the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Cake? The original was for Adam’s 30th. It was an epic way to eat all the feelings. Then I made it again for my blog birthdaversary because it was that good.
P.S.S. I do know that 30 really isn’t that old. It just feels old to me. Especially since I feel like I just graduated college yesterday even though it was actually 8 years ago. E-I-G-H-T. I can’t even deal. I CAN’T EVEN.
I should mention, my dad’s birthday is two days after mine. I’m not sure how my dad feels about having an almost birthday crasher but I never minded it as I grew up. I always thought it was fun. But birthdays always mean cards, right? Have you guys noticed how expensive cards have been getting lately? It’s hard not to spend at least $4/card these days.
Walmart has this great section of Hallmark cards starting at just 47 cents. 47 CENTS! At that price, you can pretty much buy all the cards and be set for the epic year of birthday celebrations. This also works in my favor because when I’m card shopping with Kelsey, she literally wants to buy all the cards. We usually end up with some obscure card that she’ll decorate and send to her sister (who lives with her). Ha… to be 3 right?
(Seriously… can I get some time reversal magic here?) <– birthday wish
I picked up a bunch of the cards to cover everyone’s birthdays throughout the year. I’m notorious for forgetting to give cards. No lie, I gave Adam his Valentine’s Day card on Father’s Day this year. Better late than never right?
I also sometimes forget that I actually got ahead and bought cards for people and then I go out and buy more. We had two sets of cards for my brother and Adam’s brother’s birthdays (they share a birthday) this year. Only me…
But hey, at just 47 cents it’s not a big deal! Also, those awesome “29 Again” candles were found at Walmart in the baking aisle. They’re perfect and I’ll be using them every year from now until eternity.
I made this epic gluten free funfetti cake as an early birthday cake. I should mention, we are experimenting with a dairy-free diet for Kelsey because her doctor suspects she’s lactose intolerant. So not only is this cake gluten free, it’s dairy free as well. Boo to elimination diets. BUT… it’s got sprinkles. Yay for sprinkles…
If you don’t want to or you don’t have to go totally dairy free, I’d suggest using my favorite vanilla buttercream with this cake. You can also use dairy milk in place of the non-dairy milk in the cake batter. Whichever way you choose to make the cake, enjoy!
And cheers to 30.
