Quarter Century Birthday

Happy Birthday to meeee!

This is currently my mom's facebook profile picture. Yes it is me. No not much has changed!
I am 25 years old. I cannot believe it! When I started this blog I had just graduated college and my boyfriend was preparing for his first deployment to Iraq. I was 21 and I had no idea what I was doing with my life.

In the last nearly four years I completed my job at Disney, got engaged, married, moved to Alexandria, got a grown up job, met amazing amazing people, got my first pup, did nine months on opposite coasts from my husband and did our first PCS to North Carolina.


And that is only the really big stuff! All the little things, the commercial, getting cast in this show, driving a road trip on my own.... they happened too.

My brothers all went from kids to young adults who are now all taller than I am.

My family moved from New Jersey to North Carolina and still managed to be seven hours away from me in the same state!

I have had my longest period of unemployment since I started working in my early teens.

I had french toast given to me in bed this morning by an amazing husband. There is also a huge bag on the dining room table I am not allowed to open until tonight!

And a box from my family. And Georgetown Cupcakes. And a cake that is yellow inside with chocolate icing and blue letters, my ultimate favorite. And a watermelon draining in the bathtub to make a vodka watermelon for all the people (friends who are new and wonderful and some known for a long time who are equally as wonderful) coming this evening.

Plus, for the next five months I get to be older than my husband!!!

The first 25 years of my life have been an amazing journey, I cannot wait to see what the next quarter of a century has in store for me!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes (here and on facebook and instagram and texts etc!) (:


  1. Happy birthday! Sounds like you have the same age gap as between me and my hubby. It's less fun when you hit 30 and he gets to call you 'old' for 5 months :)

  2. Happy Birthday! Sounds like a great 4 years that you've been blogging!

  3. Happy happy birthday friend!!!

  4. Such a cute photo! Happy birthday again! :)
