What are you looking for?

At my age I should be ...

I'm 28, and I feel like society has placed certain pressures on us late twenties folk to be at a certain 'stage' at this point. Truthfully, I don't look or feel 28 and although it did take me a while, I now don't care as much that I'm in my late twenties, not married (yet), and don't have babies. 

It's still funny to look at the stereotypes though! 

According to society

At my age I should be looking like:

And feeling like:

And doing things or already have done things like:

Or better yet ...


I usually look like:

And feel like:

I spend my days like:

And my weekends like:

And that's ok too!  

Also thank you to Amanda from Notes from a Newlywed for nominating me for a versatile blogger award! Muy apreciado!

It's day 1 of the work week for me! Happy Tuesday guys!

  1. what a fabulous post! totally agree with everything! screw society ;)

  2. LOVE this!! I am so with you- especially on what we feel like- faceplant.

  3. Happy Tuesday! I cracked up at that face plant gif -- and trust me, entering your 30s won't necessarily change feeling that way ;)

  4. Girl I 100% feel you on this post! I'm 29 and swear I'm in bed at like 9pm on Friday nights....it's a problem ;-)

  5. I'm so with you on this one. At 25 I'm right between my friends who are married/parents/homeowners and the other ones who are constantly blackout drunk and don't know where their keys are. The twenties are a weird decade to be sure ;)

  6. Love the quote. I'm turning 30 in July and suprisingly I'm not having a fit over it.

  7. Hooray for not falling into stereotypes. I can't imagine being married with kids right now!!

  8. I'll be 28 next month and though I do have 3 kids and am currently engaged, I still don't consider myself a stereotype. I don't have the typical car/house/kids/etc. and I am definitely not a "domestic diva" who cooks, cleans, attends PTO meetings, and all that crap. Hell, if I'm not in the mood to cook you can bet your ass is eating Hot Pockets for dinner! Lol.
