The epiphany

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

I'm 31.

There. I said it.

Why this was such an epiphany driving down the highway at lunch today, I have no idea, but needless to say, it completely ruined my entire lunch time.

I was on my way to Old Navy for a little lunch time shopping, but this harsh reality ruined it all. There was nothing cute, and what was cute wasn't in my size.

All because I'm 31.

Yes, I know it's been 44 days since this cruel turn of events. But I think I was blinded to it's effects by the fabulousness that was the "8 Days Of Stephanie". So blinded, in fact, that it hadn't even hit me until today, 44 days later, that not only am I 30, but I'm 31.

The only good thing that came out of this lunch-time epiphany was this:

Some nice cozy slippers. These should make me feel better.

Well, those and some Diet Dr. Pepper and Flipz!

Watch out. Next come the cardigan sweaters a la Mr. Rogers. ;-)

I remember 31 so well--I was very proud that 30 was no big deal and didn't bother me, but somehow 31 hit me like a ton of bricks. Being single didn't help just then.

Now I'm 46, and just getting warmed up. Life is good!

Anyway, I haven't been by here in a long time, but popped in from your comment at Mindless Junque. I love your Christmas decorations!

Enjoy the ride...

I'm 28 and I can't ever find anything at Old Navy. And yep, when I do find something cute, it's never in my size. :(

You look amazing for 31, by the way.

Rachel said...

Alright! Does anyone over the age of 31 read your blog??!! I'm 37 and will never ever fit into anything from Old Navy again unless it's a men's t-shirt. Now where do I get some "old lady" slippers? Ha, ha. ;)

Lauren said...

At least you can remember your age! I realized a couple months later that I wasn't 32 I was 33! Imagine losing an entire year. By the way - the slippers look cozy but so 31 :)

Meg said...

You are gorgeous...I can still remember 32 like it was yesterday...sigh...

At least you aren't writing about the end of your "babe" days like I did today!

let's get acquainted

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
