Today is My Birthday! And a Request...

Hey greenies, today is my birthday and I'm this year I'm turning 30! Now I'm not one to have a big party, usually I just have a small get-together with my family. But this year I thought it would be fun to have a little "virtual party" here on the blog....since I'm turning the big 3-0!

So instead of getting me a present, I'd love it if you could share which Ashley's Green Life video/post is your favorite. As a blogger I can see my stats as to which video/post has the most views or the most comments, but I would love to hear which one is your personal favorite.

Now it can be an older video or a newer one.  It can be one of the videos of my girls, one about a green tip, or just a recipe one.

Either way, let me know your favorite and either why it's your favorite or how it's impacted your life.

As a "thank you" for your present, I'm going to take a little trip down memory lane and show you some pictures from my past birthdays. Word of caution, some pictures are pretty grainy/digitalized as I had to take iPhone pictures of old pictures and scrapbook pictures...I'm just amazed I found as many as I did!

No time for the video? Take a walk down memory lane with me here: 

Just born.

Turning 2.

Turning 3.

Turning 4. I love this look on my face...kudos to my mom
for making that rockin' Barbie birthday cake!

Turning 7. Only I would be this excited about a book called
Sky & Earth!
Turning 9. In love with my Samantha American Girl Doll and Beethoven 2 Dog
It's probably hard to see here but every year when I was younger my mom would
make me a birthday shirt to wear with "shirt paint" (back when shirt paint was
really cool) and I always loved seeing what cool design she came up with.

Turning 11. Enter what I call "boy phase" this is a 3 or so
year period of my life where I had short hair (thanks to my
own doing because I refused to take care of my long hair)
so yeah, my hair was very "boyish." 

Turning 15. Longer hair is back, yeah! Here I am super excited
to get an Applebee's gift certificate, I loved that restaurant back

Turning 19. Brandon is in the picture now,
we had been together for about a year
when this was taken. I'm guessing we probably
spent this birthday going to see a scary movie,
our favorite to watch back then. 

Turning 21. You can bet I had a pretty low-key 21st compared
to most. Complete with a homemade cake and a movie.
(The flowers are part of the scrapbook page I took this pic
from in case you're wondering.)

Turning 22. Here we are a few months before
getting married. Back when Brandon had
long hair!

Turning 23. I remember this one because I think
that's a new yoga mat behind me in the big box. 

Turning 25. Last birthday as a blonde. With my mom this
time. Are our cheeks identical or what? ( :

Turning 26. About 31 weeks pregnant with Avery.

Turning 27. Avery was about 9 months old.

Turning 28. Grainy cell phone pic, but
I love seeing what Avery looked like.
She was about 18 months here.

Turning 29 last year with Avery who was almost 3. 
Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the picture I post tonight of my 30th birthday!

Be sure to check back in on Sunday to an early birthday present I got this year and how I'm using it to help me go green!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your favorite video/post and for all the support you've given me over the past five years that I've had this blog. I couldn't do it without you guys and I'm so excited for the videos to come this year!

Okay, now I'm off to eat some of my gluten-free, vegan pancake birthday cake!
