Two for One

Oh, how many things that simple phrase can mean now a days in my life...

I didn't get a chance to hop on to the computer yesterday, so I'm combining Summer Camp Days 3 & 4 into one post.

Day 3: What are your guilty pleasures?

  1. Coffee. A true cup of coffee house coffee. The kind with flavors and froth.
  2. Pedicures
  3. Reading. Anything. A book, a magazine, the back of a cereal box...I don't often have time these days.
  4. Scrapbooking
  5. Blogging

Day 4: What has most surprised you about being an adult? What have you learned about yourself through blogging?

I think the biggest thing that I've been surprised about being an adult is that I don't feel any older.

When I was young, I thought that as I became an adult, I'd feel different. More adult-like. Responsible. Older.

I don't.

I just feel like me. Only with more aches and pains if I do something I used to do in my youth.

Now, I don't mean that I'm not responsible.

I pay my bills, clean the house, make dinner for my family.

I just don't feel any different.

Blogging has taught me that I'm not alone.

Even when I think that I am.

There are wonderful women out in the world, who feel like me, who've struggled, who've walked similar paths as me...and are willing to support me.


  1. Love this. And I can so relate to the not feeling any older comment. I really thought I would and yet here I am just feeling like I'm doing life but not feeling old. Well besides the snap, crackle, pop :)

  2. pedicures, yes please!!

    and I feel that way too - like I am never going to grow up, or feel older, or whatever. I often feel that I am just a kid walking around in grown up clothes.
