25 Thoughts on 25 Years

Guys. I turned 25 at the end of July and I can hardly believe it!

I have been alive for a quarter of a century (sounds older now, doesn’t it?)

I’m at the point in my life where I’m supposed to be an adult, and I don’t even know how I got here. Some days I still think I’m 17- I definitely feel 17 most days. So just for fun, I wanted to share 25 thoughts on being 25!


  1. I’m a quarter of a century. I know I said that earlier… but seriously. Think about that for a second.
  2. I have been married for 4 years!
  3. I have 2 beautiful children. I never would have guessed I’d be a mommy of two by the time I was 25!
  4. Drinking coffee is no longer for fun, is a necessity.
  5. I wear my hair in a “mom bun” a lot more than I am proud of. I guess two kids will do that to you.
  6. Putting on real clothes is a lot of work. I love my sweat pants. And they love me.
  7. I pull all nighters, but not for fun anymore. Kids will do that to you.
  8. I’ve gained some weight, and it isn’t the end of the world. I was so worried about my weight growing up, now I’m worried about what my kid just ate off the floor.
  9. I have gained a deep appreciation for area rugs. They really make a space feel like home.
  10. I don’t always need to wear makeup. Who has time for that?
  11. I NEED alone time. Even if its just for a few minutes hiding in the bathroom. Having some peace and quiet.
  12. My mom is one of my best friends, I wish I wouldn’t have appreciated her more when I was living at home.
  13. Highschool friendships really can last a life time.
  14. Changing lighbulds is not my strong point. I haven’t seen whats really in my closet in almost a month….
  15. I didn’t like to cook when I was 20. I still don’t like to cook at 25… I was hoping this would change. So was my husband.
  16. Sometimes I have to say no to fun things, because I just can’t cope. And that is OK. I don’t always have to make it to the play group or Bible study. Sometimes I just need to stay home, in my pajamas and mom bun.
  17. Pay your bills. On time. All the time. It will affect your credit and someday you will want to buy a house and it will matter.
  18. Sometimes I like to trick my 3 year old into coloring, so that I can pull out my grownup coloring book and join him.
  19. Birthdays get less exciting every year. And less people remember them.
  20. I love shopping online. I used to be scared to order things without trying them on… now I’m more scared to take my kids into a store…. let alone a tiny dressing room.
  21. Flying still freaks me out. Another thing I was hoping would change.
  22. I like nice things. I don’t need a lot of things, just a few really nice things.
  23. I LOVE naps. Like, I really love them. Especially when my kids take them.
  24. It’s not all about me. Wait, what? My husband and my family come first, and I’m not always great at that but I am realizing it more and more as I get older.
  25. Being 25 does not make me feel like an adult. Waking up and realizing I’m a wife and a mom is still so crazy to me!


Here is to another year, I know it will hold more than I can imagine. I can’t wait to see what God had planned for me.
