Grown Up Check List

I have been 27 for 3 days.  I have been thinking a lot about 27.  I think 27 means that I am a grown up now.  I guess I better start doing grown up things.  Inspired by Emily’s 30 before 30… Here are my Things To Do Now That I Am A Grown Up.

1. Find my signature scent.  I have been wearing my Mom’s signature scent (which I absolutely love) but maybe I should be a grown up and get my own.

signaturescents 2. Be able to watch scary movies and not get freaked out.

3. Send out holiday cards.

4. Drink espresso and read the newspaper with reading glasses.


5. Keep up with correspondences.

6. Do a proper Spring Cleaning a la Martha Stewart.

6. Cook more and have dinner parties.


7. Have hand lotion on my bedside table and put it on before bed. (I see women doing that in the movies all the time! Do grown ups really do that?  Well, I’m going to… I don’t want old lady hands by the time I’m 30.)

8.  Eat more croissants.  (What?  It’s on the list.  I have to do it.)


8. Have fresh flowers in my apartment.


9.  Organize my closet and keep it organized.


10.  And I guess… fall in love and ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after.


That is my check list so far!  If you have any suggestions… let me know.  I am sure I will be adding to it!

Thank you all for the birthday love!  I am looking froward to a wonderful year :)

Cheers to 27!
