i'm 28.

birthday truths about laura.

1.  Earlier this year I had a senior in HS work in my classroom with me. I didn't consider myself that much older than her. I felt like I was not THAT far removed from HS. FALSE. I'm old and I know I'm old because I thought that.

2.  I still shop at American Eagle, mostly the jewelry section...but still. I've been wearing their clothes for 13 years. HOLY CRAP.

3. I watched Beauty and the Beast with Lilly on Sunday and cried during the song when they are dancing in the ballroom and she was wearing her yellow dress because I started to think of Lilly falling in love one day.

4. I don't want to give up the nighttime milk. It's bad enough I gave up the nighttime bottle (it's now in a sippy) but I crave that last cuddle before bed. CRAVE.

5. I put lilly to bed early on Monday nights so I can be on the couch. in pjs. with a snack before the bachelor starts. ;)

6. my craft room? is my kitchen. and it looks horrendous. like a bomb went off. a bomb filled with satin and embroidery floss. BOMB.

7. my daughter is dramatic. she's. just. like. me.  

8. If I had to eat the same meal everyday for every meal it would be.... Chic-fil-a Number 1 extra pickles with Polynesian sauce and a Dr. pepper.

9. I love coffee creamer more than the coffee.

10. E! news is the only news I watch and I'm ok with that.

Happy 1st of February! :)

  6. Let's see...first up? Happy Birthday!!! :) I'll be 29 this summer. You feel old? I had this convo with my little 12 y/o cuz:

    Me (to my hubby when he put a rubber band on his head being dumb): You look like Richard Simmons.
