I Love Aging

Before I get started, you should know that I am walking contradiction. Remember how I told y'all I was scared to get older? I briefly mentioned it on my 27th birthday but I have definitely written about it other times too. EEK. I used to have a big issue with aging.

However (here comes the contradiction)... I have recently decided that I LOVE AGING
Why, you may ask? Truth be told, I have never felt better in my life. I have never felt more loved, attractive, successful, or knowledgeable than I do in this very moment. Therefore, I have been feeling like a little sass kitten with thoughts of, "I've still got it."

Contrary to my college days and all the partying that I did, I now get excited about the yard being freshly mowed, zero dishes in the sink, and all of the laundry put away. Spoiler alert: all of those things got completed this weekend in the Skinner household. I am pleased as punch. Since we're hosting a 4th of July party this Friday and all, I wanted to make sure that the house was spic & span. For all my fellow red, white, and blue lovers, you have to check out Kohls. They have the best sales right now on 4th of July stuff (here). Plus, don't forget to use your 15% off coupon

Anyways, in the spirit of the best holiday evs, here are a few pins that I may or may not be making for Friday!


  1. I feel ya girl. Sometimes the actual "number" freaks me out, but I really do feel the best I've ever felt. I think 27 is the cool age to be ;)

  2. I can't wait to see pictures from your party! How fun!

    I'm glad you're at peace with aging--you're only as old as you feel!

  3. I love walking keeps people on their toes! Haha. And those pins all look amazing! I hope y'all have a fabulous party!!


  4. I'm so glad you're embracing it :) you're gorgeous and I love your love for life. I'm also psyched about the 4th!!

  5. Yes, I completely agree! I just turned 28 and I'm in the best spot of my life, I don't mind aging at all :) I can't wait to see pics from your party!

  6. I have a feeling you are going to love my ideas for my sunroom. Its funny how getting older isnt that bad.

  7. this looks like SO much fun! Can't wait to see how the party turns out!

  8. I cannot wait to see this party come together! You have been dreaming of it for months!

  9. I really wish we weren't going out of town this weekend or I would totally crash this party and have a b-last with you guys!! Lol

    1. Wish y'all could've come, but it's all good. Next year, we should all do something fun together!

  10. Oh my gosh you are going to have such a cute party! I love all of those ideas!!
