PSF and 24

Tomorrow is my 31st 24th birthday.

I used to love my birthday. That feeling ended last year. I'd rather stay in my 20s than receive presents.

So, in order to keep perspective, today I'm listing 31 24 things I'm thankful for.

24. Chocolate. Who doesn't love that.

23. Peanut butter. It's the perfect chocolate accessory.

22. Jillian Michael's workouts. They allow me to overindulge in number 23 & 24.

21. The first day of school.

20. Sleeping babies.

19. Purses. Who doesn't love to shop for purses?

18. Shoes. If I'm not shopping for a purse, I'm shopping for shoes.

17. The beach

16. Dressing up.

15. Jewelry. I love jewelry. (hint hint, honey.)

14. Auburn football.

13. Vampires.

12. Werewolves.

11. Spaghetti.

10. Swimming.

9. A bad hair day because it means we have hair!

8. Best friends.

7. Funny faces.

6. Going out to dinner.

5. Luke.

4. This big boy.

3. This little boy.

2. This adorable girl.
1. The best husband ever!

Wow, I didn't realize you were that much younger than me - you're making me feel really old *wink wink*

Love the pictures, but where is you?!?! :)

Summer said...

Tomorrow's the big day, huh?!! I turn 31..{ahem}...I mean 24 in May!!! What a coincidence! ;)

Foursons said...

Happy Birthday! I love this post, I just may have to steal your idea one day. :)

And girl- this year I am on my way OUT of my 30's. Ugh.

He & Me + 3 said...

What a fun post. Happy Birthday! I love that you love bad hair days because it means you have hair. LOL CUTE!

Rachel said...

Happy Birthday! :)

ADORABLE pics -- love the spaghetti face and the "bad hair day"!

Chris said...

Happy birthday! You really don't look a day over nineteen to tell you the truth :)

I have to say I don't love shopping for purses -- but I'm probably in the minority. And who is Luke? Skywalker? Duke? Perry?

And how did this "Luke" get ranked above Vampires?

(If I was a good friend, I'd post pictures of the mullet for your birthday, but I don't think I'll find them in time :)

Happy Birthday!!
What a great thing to do instead of dwelling on birthdays! I will have to give this a try on my next birthday or maybe just every day! I wonder if I could come up with 36 things to be thankful for EVERY DAY. OK maybe once a month! Hahaha
They released New Moon just for you!
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of Charlie's binkis next to him in bed!

Kelli said...

Leslie said...

Happy Birthday, Em! Love your 24 things list!!! ;) sooo sweet!!

Cecily R said...

Best birthday post EVER. I loved everything about it.

My grandma says that her best year was 27. She's been 27 for almost 60 years now. :)

Emmy said...

Happy Birthday!!

So is 24 the age you just like to say, or could you only think of 24 things so picked that age by default? :)

I am a year behind you, I will be the big 30 in October.. but in some ways I am looking forward to it, as then when people ask if I am old enough to have 2 1/2 kids, I can say "I am 30!"

Krystyn said...

That's a good list.

Happy birthday!

Sierra said...

I like your list. I too have decided my list will only ever be 24 items long.

Jen said...

What a great way to celebrate your 24th Birthday day. :)

Ryanne said...

You can be 100 and and really only be 20 or be 20 and really be 100, it is all a matter of perspective and how we take on life. I don't mind being 34...because I still feel like I am 20! Happy Day...embrace it!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Happy birthday! You're only as old as you feel!

Jessica said...

Happy Birthday!!! I hope it's wonderful! Cute idea with the listing of things.

Carrie said...

wow, 24! I would've guessed 23, you look amazing :) Seriously, you look fabulous and should be proud of your thirties...c'mon...I'll be 35 in October...ugh! THat's mid-thirties! Don't you feel better now ;) I bet you had a great day! Happy Birthday!!!
