I'm not sure what I thought I would be doing at 24 when I was younger, but I'm pretty sure I thought that you were a REAL adult then.
You we're officially a "grown-up."

Yeah, 18 is really the age you become an "adult" but let's face it - most of us don't act like it.
I always thought I would have a good job, lots of friends, a boyfriend, living on my own in a cool apartment. Lots of money to spend on myself. Really fancy clothes. All that good stuff.

For the most part I have all that.
A fiance in my case. Renting a house. Some good friends. I do have a good job. Not lots of money, but enough to get by. Clothes aren't too fancy.
And I'm completely content with that right now.

But I don't feel like this birthday is as life changing as I imagined when I was younger.
It's almost just another day - except I actually have a good [instead of a crappy one] excuse to eat cake.

I do feel like I'm at the age where life gets a lot more serious.
Obviously, I'm getting married this year. My fiance and I plan on beginning the house hunting process towards the end of the year. We do want to have kids sooner, rather than much later. 

I think 24 is the year where I get my life together.
And I think I'm ready for the journey.
With y'all following along of course. :)


Sunday afternoon we headed over to my mom's house to celebrate me turning twenty-four with my family. My mama made yummy lasagna and bought my favorite - cookie cake.
It was nice to spend it with my family, including my grandparents and aunt.

But Maci kinda stole the show with her cuteness. :)
You'll see.

And now for the rest of my birthday - I'll be cozying it up on the couch with my honey bunny, Moo & Hank because SCHOOL IS CANCELLED Y'ALL!
Thank you -10 degree weather. :)


  1. For some reason I thought the same about turning 25! Happy birthday! Hope you are having a great week!


  2. Happy birthday! Hope you enjoy your day off. My pup Bo wishes I had the day off so he didn't have to go outside later this morning when I head to work. Thankfully my brother will be able to bring him back inside so he's not out there all day. Cookie cakes are pretty awesome! I took one to work for my birthday last year and couldn't stop eating it.

  3. happy happy birthday! enjoy this relaxing day, celebrating you!

  4. Happy birthday!! What an exciting year for you with getting married and beginning house hunting. It's crazy how when we were younger we thought we would be adults at 24 but I don't feel like a "real adult" I feel like an "almost adult". Your boots are super cute and that cookie cake looks so delicious! happy birthday again.

  5. That's how I felt when I was younger. I thought I would have it all figured out by now.HA! Happy Birthday!
