Signs You're Approaching Your Mid-30's

This year I turn 35, which feels pretty strange.  Some days I still feel like I'm 25, and other days I could believe I could not be over 30, yet here I am.  I look in the mirror and find new companions - grey hairs, smile lines, things growing on my body, and new moles. 

Here are some more signs, compiled by me, that you, too, may be approaching your mid-30's:

-You care more about being comfy than cute (most of the time).

-Your nighttime routine includes facial moisturizer, plucking hairs and Crest Whitestrips.

-You go to Victoria's Secret for one thing and one thing only - comfy cotton underwear.

-A late night means that you're in bed by 10:30pm.

-You play "brain games" to keep your mind stimulated (Soduko, Crossword Puzzles, etc.)

-You carry Bean-O or Tums in your purse

-Teen girls pass by you, whisper to each other and giggle.

-Your knees pop.

-You need help getting up off the floor after playing with your kids.

-You listen to KOST 103.5 and secretly hope your spouse dedicates a song to you.

-You look at old pictures of yourself and say, "I was so skinny!"

-Your wardrobe contains the brands Merona, Lee, High Sierra or St. Johns Bay.

-You have a crockpot cookbook.

-You sleep with earplugs, lotion and/or chapstick next to your bed.

Do you identify?  Am I missing anything?

  1. BAHAHAHAHA! OMGosh Jaimie I can totally relate! Well, except for the Beanos or Tums in my purse and being cute. Trying to still look cute helps me not to think about the white hairs, new little wrinkles, and sagging..... stuff ;o). But yeah, knees popping, KOST 103 hahahahahaha! That's funny, I listen to Kost like, ALL the time now and sometimes KWAV. Can you say "old lady?" I have the crockpot cookbook, St. John's Bay jeans, chapstick... and sad to admit... a variety of chopsticks and hair clips for my daily hair buns :o( Oh, and sometimes make this intense, funny sound when I get up from the floor... kinda like, "OOoooooAH!" Now can you see why I still at least try to look cute? My question is... why don't guys ever think about these things? Excellent post, my friend - LOVED it!! XOXO
