Final Countdown

I'm less than 6 months away from my 30th birthday.

This is the Final Countdown! (Cue Europe)

Come June, I'll enter a whole new decade. I'll be out of my 20's forever and to be honest, I'm kinda psyched about it. Not that my 20's were bad, I mean, I toured Europe, (not to be confused with the 80's hair band in the aforementioned link), graduated from college, got married, moved to Texas, survived seminary, bought a house, had a baby... all good things. And now onto 30!

Sorry, this isn't a "30 before 30" kinda post. Mostly because I'm boring and I could hardly think of a handful of things that I'd like to accomplish before June, much less 30 things.

Instead, here are a few others who were born, invented, created, or debuted in 1984 and will turn 30 in 2014:

  1. A&E The home of syndicated all-day-every-day marathons of Criminal Minds and Law & Order. Oh, and Duck Dynasty.
  2. Katy Perry. I secretly think we could be BFFs if given the opportunity. 
  3. Red Bull. I've never actually drank a red bull, but they've been giving plenty of people "wings" for three decades now.
  4. The Macintosh. Is that a floppy disk drive??
  5. LeBron James
  6. The Neverending Story. Falcor, Atreyu, the giant rock man, the Nothing... 
  7. Papa John's Pizza. ...and now I'm hungry for pizza.
  8. MAC Cosmetics. Hallelujah.

Some of these are surprises to me-- especially A&E and MAC. I'd like to know what kind of makeup MAC was putting out in the 80s. I bet it was amazing.

I'll turn 30 in August so I loved your list. MAC is totally my favorite and now I know why :)

P.s. - saw your comment on Elizabeth's post about siblings. Praying for you. We're starting those talks too!
