Blah - I'm 25

So the day that I have been dreading is finally here....it's my birthday....I'm 25.  I have been looking about my "About Me" column with sheer disdain the past few weeks knowing that today I would have to change the part that said "I'm twenty-four."  I really didn't think that through too well when I set-up this blog.....

So this year I've wised up. Now I will classify myself as a "twenty-something" - because Lord knows I don't need to perform the brutal task of bumping up my age each year in my "About Me" section.

I'm not exactly sure why I'm so down in the mouth this birthday.  Maybe it's because the past few months have been a real challenge for me.  Or maybe I realize all of the goals I have for myself that I still need to complete - MBA, CPA, etc....  I feel like "25" is somehow the official stamp of adulthood (nevermind that I've been married for almost two years and have owned a house for almost the same.) I can really no longer use the excuse, "Well - I was young, and didn't really know better...."  Or possibly I'm allergic to aging - makes me sick on my stomach?

But unfortunately as I have learned from the beautiful women ahead of me, this birthday is a reality and I'm getting older no matter how much I dislike it.  So I'm off - for the first day of 25.  :)

Happy Birthday, pretty girl! I know exactly how you feel! So much so, in fact, that I threw a "Kristin's Half of 50" party when I turned 25! I'll be 27 this year, and let me tell you right now that it doesn't get any easier! But look at the bright side...the best things in life get better with age, right?! Enjoy your special day!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday! My husband conquered the dreaded 25 in January...and mine is in May. So I know how your feeling. It feels like such a crazy number and that you should have so much accomplished by now.

Happy Birthday! I love that you are 25! I love that this world has been able to enjoy you for 25 years! I miss you, and I wish I could be there to celebrate with you. Cheer up, and have a great day! I love you!

Kaloula said...

I went thru the "quarter life crisis" when I turned 25, having thought about where I was at that age vs where I wanted to be. You seem to be doing very well, relax and enjoy! Happy Birthday!

Girl, shut up. Lol... twenty something. Geez, you make it sound like you're twenty nine or something. Lol. (Any 29 year olds that read this, i'm joking!) You should totally be celebrating. I've never seen a woman that didn't get better with age. And you're no different. Happy birthday!!!

25 was a GREAT year for me and I know it will be for you too!! Your insurance goes down, you can officially rent a car-- the list goes on and on!!! Celebrate and live it up!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Age is JUST a number! :-) But I agree, turning 25 was a little WEIRD for me too. Hope you have a fantastic day, lady! :-)

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day!

I felt the same way when I turned 25! I was so depressed! I still get a little depressed knowing I am inching my way to 30 (I will be 28 this year). But I will have to say each year since I have turned 25 has gotten better and better and I have accomplished many goals!

Katie said...

oh honey - i KNOW how you feel. i'm going to be TWENTY NINE, yes 29 this year!!! ONE YEAR AWAY FROM 30!!! i have a feeling i'm going to have a hard time with 30 ... hopefully i'll have a munchkin by then to keep me distracted :) have fun and ENJOY your 25th! use it as an excuse for an "all about you day" or shoot, WEEK as we do it in our family!!!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRETTY!!!

Karah said...

Happy bday my blogger bff!! Hope you have a great day!!Oh and your mom's post today was the sweetest!!

Annie said...

Happy birthday Amber! I've read your blog for a while now, just never commented. I just wanted to say I think you'll be as fabulous at twenty-five as you were at twenty-four. I have similar feelings about getting older; I'll be twenty this year and every time I remember that twenty is two decades I start to flip. At the same time, though, I try to remember it's just the start of a new adventure. :]

Mrs.Vid said...

Happy Birthday, Amber! I am sure that 25 will be a fabulous year for you! I hope you have a great day today.

Alissa said...

Happy Happy B-day to you Amber! I hope you have a great one! I'm 27 and almost 28 yikes. I can't even believe it, but you know what age is just a number. I'm beginning to realize that more everyday. Have a wonderful one!

Sarah said...

Aw, happy birthday! I think the "oh my goodness" reaction to turning 25 is normal. =) My hubby went through the same thing on his birthday.

P.S. I gave you an award at my blog!

Ashley said...

Jessica said...

Kelsey Claire @Lavender, Leopard, and Lace said...

Happy 25th birthday! I am currently 25 and it isn't so bad. I am worried about 26. Then I will really feel old!

Heather Martin said...

I turned 25 in November and don't feel much different i have to say. Ive always felt really old for my age.

I hope youre having a great bday!
