25 On The 25th For 25


It’s March 25th, 2013 & I turn 25 today.  I thought I would share 25 things
that you may not know about me. 25 seems like a big milestone. I can remember being
told for the first time what a “Golden Birthday” was when I was younger & imagining what
I would be doing on my golden birthday when I turned 25. I pictured a sparkly grown up
party where everyone was wearing ball gowns & my prince charming was loading all
of my gifts into our shiny new car. All while my friends & I danced the night
away in our fancy dresses. Now that I’m 25 I can top that. Of course my Golden
Birthday falls on a monday {Who does that?} so, no shiny grown up party or ball gowns.
I have class & some work things, but after that I get to spend my birthday with my
handsome marine. I couldn’t think of anything better. Next week we are taking a week
long trip to South Carolina to see my brother in law, visit some friends, & Mr. LMB has a
few baseball games there as well. So that will be my birthday trip & I’m getting really excited to
get away for a week of fun, antiquing, shopping, relaxing & hanging out with my best friend.
Twenty five is already off to a great start so far & I’m looking forward to seeing what this year has to
offer me as a girl with big dreams, hopes & who is now a quarter of a century old.
{That sounds really bad when you put it that way, so let’s never do that again. mkay}

  38. Happy Birthday! That was a fun post. It was my sons birthday on the 25th too.

  39. Happy belated birthday. OMG, my sweet. You are just adorable. Re: #9 I, too, was once paralyzed by heights. I mean, burst-into-tears, gasping-for-breath PARALYZED. As I’ve gotten older (I’m 59 now), I have been able to let go of it. How? Don’t know exactly. Perhaps because I have regretted the fun things I didn’t allow myself to experience by giving in to my fear and became MORE afraid that I’d miss something wonderful if I didn’t Just Get Over It. Thankfully, I just got over it. I hope you find a way to feel safe and experience the wondrous experiences life has to offer by letting go of your fear. Blessings, dear LMB. BTW, love your blog.

  40. Happy Milestone Birthday!!! U r very, very blessed to be married to your best friend; to speak every day on the phone to your parents; and to be such a beautiful young lady :) The coffee and the heights are so me ;) When my mother used to hem my pants, it was easier for her if I was “above” her, so I would have to climb on top of the dining room table – such an ordeal! Crying, Dad holding on to my arm, shaking “dammit, I can’t get the pins in!” – and what was I, two, maybe three feet off the ground ;)?!

  41. Happy golden birthday!!! I had to comment bc my birthday is March 24th. And my golden birthday was …. a few years ago…lol. But I rarely meet anybody with a birthday so close to mine.

    Happy birthday again!

You have inspired my own home decor and DIY- thank you! You have created a home decor style that I have always loved but have never been able to create. Thank you for the inspiration. And yay for deer antlers! My husband hunts- and he also loves my taste in anything rustic. Take care!
