Hey friends! How are you? Happy Friday to all. I’m blaming my blogging absence this past week totally on grown-up things. I know that since I’m 27 I’m technically (obviously) an adult…but seriously sometimes I am not a fan. Bills, expenses, responsibilities… sometimes adulthood is just plain overwhelming, right? Often I wonder why I can’t just be 6 years old again and play with my Barbie’s…
5-year old me. Clearly Barbie obsessed…
Well as much as I would like to rewind the clocks and play Barbie’s, that clearly won’t be happening anytime soon. However, the good news is that not all grown-up things are bad. In fact the things I’m speaking of from last week (although one of them was quite time-consuming), were actually pretty fun!
First up, I bought a car!
If you’ve ever bought a car before or even just shopped for one, I’m fairly certain you know the painstaking amount of time it takes to research, test-drive, analyze, price-check, and do all the necessary comparisons before you make a decision. Well, after a solid month of test-drives and research across the states of New England, I followed my instinct and bought this little lady. I am so pleased with my decision. It’s most importantly a safe choice, but it also has all wheel drive for horrible Maine winters, a sunroof, and the necessary heated seats (hello toasty buns). A huge thanks to my boss and my parents for putting up with my indecisive shenanigans, and for helping me with this big, time-consuming decision!
Second on the grown-up list: I celebrated another anniversary (from abroad):
Brandon and I marked another anniversary last week, which is unreal to me. This coming June, we’ll have known each other for 10 years (AKA we are getting old!). It was a special day but of course I was sad at the same time because really, who wants to spend their anniversary apart? However, he sent these beautiful flowers and a lovely note, so I felt like we were together in spirit.
Third on the list: A weekend getaway with my girls
When you combine 3 best friends, a wonderful family, & countless bottles of bubbly, you’re sure to have a memorable weekend. A Cape Cod getaway full of too much wine, delicious food, shopping, and visiting was just what I needed with my girls. Thanks again Laura and Peter!
Fourth on the list: Meeting my friend Karen’s adorable new baby, Georgetta Rose.
Is it just me, or do you feel super grown-up when friends your age start having babies? I know I do, but it’s so exciting, too. It’s that domino effect in our 20’s…marriage and babies are such a common occurrence! Anyway, little Georgetta was such a cutie, and I just loved meeting her. I miss you already, Karen!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
What are your most and least favorite things about adulthood?
The least favorite of mine would have to be paying bills…yuck!
The most favorite of mine would have to be excitement about the future. Oh, and having the option to drink bubbly
How was your last car-shopping experience?
