29, 30!

I love when other bloggers post childhood photos of themselves, so since today is my 30th birthday, I thought I'd share a few pics of myself in the 1980s. Of course I chose these specifically for the clothes. Clearly my mom liked hats, and I liked to make weird faces!









Jasen is taking me out to dinner tonight at my favorite tapas place, Viva Madrid in Claremont. We first went there together when we were dating. I was just 20 then! 

Tomorrow my friend Natasha is having a birthday celebration for me at her apartment...nothing too big since I prefer to be able to talk to everyone at a party and I didn't want to invite a big crowd since she so, so, SO kindly offered to host a party even though she's working crazy hours at her job.

And...tomorrow morning before the party I have to work on a copy test for a potential new full-time job! I don't want to say the name of the company or get my hopes up too much, but it's a well-known fashion/retail brand and I want this job so much. I think it would really be a great fit given my experience. I'm incredibly happy that they contacted me on my birthday and are considering my application!

  4. Happy Birthday, Heather!

    Your childhood pictures are great. Children are so expressive and really take the funniest pictures. I always have a good laugh when I look at mine (or my siblings') :)

    Good luck on the (potential) job front!

    Also I saw a personalized license plate the other day that just said 'INFJ' and my BF was like 'What could that possibly mean?' And I thought of you and your profile and was like 'OMG I be it's their Myers Briggs personality'. Thank to you I sounded really smart.
