"We're not old, we're grown!"

I remember when I used to anxiously await a holiday weekend. The excitement of which club would be having whatever party, picking an outfit to wear, pre-gaming before we went out to save money on drinks... those were some good times.

Fast forward to Memorial Day weekend 2010.

I could honestly care less about the parties at the clubs. I'd rather do some daytime shopping and curl up for a nice evening of interior decorating blogs and HGTV. Oh, and a few cups of hot green tea with lemon & honey! Yes... that sounds like an amazing night (well, it sounds like my Saturday night lol)

I probably sound like the Grinch that stole club nights, but I did manage to get together with one of my favorite girlfriends (and the mother of my god children lol) for afternoon mimosas, a few shots, cotton candy and brunch on Sunday. We were going to brave the club scene but decided to pass. As my girlfriend said, "We're not old, We're grown."

Yes - - grown! I feel like such a grown up now. Obviously my priorities in life have changed. Last year this time seems like a distant memory... one I was glad to leave behind. The older I get the more I realize what's important in life and what's for the birds. What you should give your energy to and what (and who) you should tell to kick rocks. Life is so short and I'm happy to say that everyday I wake up and realize that I'm grown and living the life that I've always wanted. I like that I'm more secure in myself, my friendships, my interests... I'm excited to be alright with not being up in someone's club wasting money. I love not being thirsty for the same ole, same ole.

This is somewhat of a little rant, but this June I'll turn 26 and I'm so happy for where my life is and where I'm going. Usually I try to keep my joy to myself because let's be real - - most people don't like happy people lol. Not that misery always wants company, but sometimes you don't feel like hearing how wonderful someone's life is. I get it. Been there before... but I just wanted to take a moment to scream from my blog rooftop that I'm madly in love with my husband and deeply in love with my life!!!

I think New Year's Resolutions are ridiculous because you can make a change at any time... so the year is halfway over, what is it that you're still looking to do? Know that anything is possible and as I like to say, "It doesn't take forever to change your life - - it only takes 15 days!"
