Happy 30th Birthday Abby!


Today, Saturday, is Abby's 30th birthday.
Like most of us, she is probably thinking that she hasn't become the person she thought she would be by the age of 30. So, I took it upon myself to make a list of her accomplishments as a little birthday present to her. If you think of others please leave them in the comments for us to see!
  1. Asked Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior of her life
  2. met and fell in love with the perfect man for her
  3. married that man (hi Randall!)
  4. planned, designed, and delegated her wedding from 5 hours away
  5. has lived in 6 cities since graduating from high school
  6. attended three colleges
  7. is a member of a sorority
  8. graduated from UCA
  9. paid off her college loans WAY early
  10. sang solos in church
  11. has completed a marathon
  12. has completed two 5K's
  13. has more friends than can be counted
  14. is a loving, generous sister
  15. is a kind, giving, and loving aunt
  16. has raised many thousands of dollars for Leukemia research
  17. currently holds a job with the responsibility of getting the name of outstanding healthcare out to her community
  18. has been successfully married for 51/2 years
  19. can make a beautifully decorated cake
  20. has great style and fashion sense
  21. never forgets anyones birthday or anniversary
  22. can decorate a Christmas tree more beautifully than Mrs. Claus
  23. is a loyal and devoted sister and friend, daughter and wife
  24. is a daughter-in-law to two mothers-in-law (now that is a fete!)
  25. doesn't take no for an answer
  26. serves on a committee for the United Way
  27. serves on committees for the Chamber of Commerce
  28. has a passport and has used it!
  29. has bought a home, sold it, and bought another one
  30. has impeccable character and integrity

I don't know what all Abby had in mind for her life by the time she reached 30 but I think she has accomplished quite a bit to be proud of. I know I am proud to call her my sister and my friend. I love you girl!
