I turned 25 today. 2-5.

This blows my mind. I told Doug last night that I have no idea where the last few years went. I remember turning 21 but to now be 25? It doesn't make any sense.

I'm not exactly handling 25 well. I'm actually kind of freaking out. I've been calling it my Quarter Life Crisis. I'm not totally sure how I feel about this big number, so that will definitely be a future blog post.

Now it's off to make my birthday dinner. :P

Saying a prayer and sending major stay-in-there thoughts to a friend and her three little buns in the oven tonight.

One thing that still amazes me about the internet is the fact that you can become so attached to friends that you've never actually met in person. My stomach dropped, my heart stopped for a second, and tears came to my eyes when I saw that this friend was in the hospital and the little ones were possibly trying to make a break for it early. I was so happy when she found out she was pregnant - she and her husband totally deserve to have this family - and I want everything to be ok. I may never be able to actually hug my friend or babysit for her, but I'm still praying just as hard as I would for my neighbor.

Stay in there babies - you aren't done baking yet!

Happy Birthday Grux!!

According to our vet today is G’s birthday. It is just a guess really since he was a rescue, but it is at least in the ballpark. So today we celebrate little dude’s 3 birthday (or 21st if you prefer dog years).

Happy birthday Grux!

I love November. Love it.

The weather, football, Thanksgiving, having the anticipation of the holidays without the overwhelming holy-crap-I-only-have-x-number-of-days-left feeling, letting my inner nerd out to make Thanksgiving menus and plans and lists of everything Christmas related. I love it all. Plus it helps that I have a lot of time off scheduled this month. While so many of my coworkers were using their vacation days when it was 90 degrees out I’ve been squirreling mine away to use this month. Yippee!

There’s also my birthday. Typically I would be like “17 days left! woohoo!” but this year I’m kinda freaking out about turning the big 2-5 so it is more like “only 17 days of being 24? ::sob::” I’m having what I’m calling a Quarter Life Crisis, but that’s really a topic for another day.

But even with the bday conundrum I’m still really happy that it is November. Anyone else love this time of year?
