Making appointments, ordering pizzas, and buying toilet paper.

Oh growing up...its hard work but also amazing at the same time.

As a kid I'd come home, finish homework and eat whatever dinner my awesome grandparents put on the table. Now I come home after a long day of work, fit in some cardio if I can...then order a pizza (I promise, not every night) :)

As a kid I got excited over a new box of pop tarts in the pantry...now I get excited about finally making an eye appointment and ordering my new glasses!
New glasses! FINALLY! (it had been 7 years with the old pair, ouch!)
As a kid the laundry was always finished and folded, now I can't tell which pile is clean and which is dirty, and certainly nothing stays folded for long. Sometimes I even take naps in the piles...I'm so clean.

As a kid my biggest worry was what my Xanga username was going to be... now I am running an actual blog and have to come up with REAL topics to write about... (but I totally love it).

As a kid I experienced plenty of family vacations, obviously already paid for...now I have to manage my vacation time off work, and save up for those costly trips!

As a kid I had a bedtime and would try to sneak on AIM at midnight...now I wake up in the middle of the night and decide to snap chat my best friends because what the heck is sleep?!

Things certainly do change as you get older, in both good and not so good ways. Bills have to be paid, schedules need coordinated, and laundry doesn't do itself...but you get to decorate your own Christmas tree, plan your own vacations, and YOU get to order take out as often as you'd like. I wouldn't recommend it often though, it'll catch up with ya ;) trust me.

So, I guess I should say that growing up is the best...and so are late nights with your husband. The weekend is almost here, hooray!

  1. LOVE your new glasses!!!! Those are seriously so adorable!

    Wasn't being a kid SO easy? Don't get me wrong, I love being an adult for the most part - but I do miss that metabolism I had at 10 years old and the stress free life I lived (except life was SO hard back then - or so we thought). Great post!

  2. You had an Xanga too? I remember the days of that, I wonder if its still around??

    I also use to love poptarts, and now I really can't stand them. I guess when you're a college student, that's breakfast all the time and now when I'm an adult I eat other things.

  4. I agree with Karla - what a fun link up idea! I love to cuddle my warm clothes from the dryer and yes that has resulted in me falling asleep in them so you're not alone :)
