My Mid Twenties {26 years young}


Some people dread getting older, but me on the other hand have never really given it a second thought.  I absolutely LOVE birthdays, which I realize it is somewhat a selfish thing to enjoy all the extra attention.  26 does feel different {I am sorry if you think I am ridiculous, just bear with me}.  As I sit in my 700 squared foot-one bedroom apartment, my life is pretty different then I imagined it to be. 

After much over analyzing I realized my focus is totally in the wrong place.  It is such an easy thing to look at everyone elses life, and think they have it perfect.  If I had everything that I had "planned" on having would I be content? The wrong part with this question is all the "I's".  Writing this I feel almost silly, because I know many people that have all these things that are still searching.  My contentment needs to come from the Lord.  Anything else I try to fill myself with just leaves me empty.  I listened to a sermon a couple of weekends ago, and this verse stuck out to me.  



Anyway, that was really serious, but this has been on my heart.  I promise I am not always series {it is actually pretty rare}.  My coffee table frequently doubles as my stage for all my Call Me Maybe performances.  You can look for tickets to be sold on stub hub coming soon...  Somethings did happen this year that reinforced that I am getting  

older ... 

I bought a washer and dryer...

I bought a vacuum {#lame}... 

Sleeping in is something my body does no longer find necessary...

Where did my 20/20 vision go?

Common people, ID me.  

My brother is old enough to go to college?!?

I am an "experienced" teacher {aka you can't play the "i didn't know I was suppose to do that" card}...

My friends are old enough to be Moms???

My facebook news feed looks like someone threw up baby/wedding.

My birthday was pretty stinkin' awesome.  My co workers sure do know how to make me feel loved :)  Thank you Kelli and Cathy!!!


Love these!


Ahhhh I need to finish grades in there!!!



One of the biggest blessings God has ever given me is my family {and really good tex mex}.  




  
And sugar...


These fabulous cupcakes are from La Rosette in Richardson, Texas.  They were ALL fabulous.  You might be wondering how I knew they were all fabulous...


Yep.  I felt sick.  

My friends and I are celebrating this weekend, and I could not be more excited!  There is a dance floor somewhere calling my name.  My birthday celebration will also continue when I see Tall Tan Man on Monday {hint, hint. wink, wink. nudge, nudge.} !!!
