I recently added a bunch of blogs to my google reader. They are mostly lovely, adorable, 20/30-somethings, who are artsy/crafty, and have adorable babies. The last part I wasn't so aware of, until I realized the other day. It's strange to be at the age where everyone is having babies & buying cute old houses and fixing them up.

First off, I am totally jealous. I messed around much longer, and still have a couple years left before I'll be entering a career. Colin already has a career-like job, but he's set on going back to school to pursue something a little higher up in the medical field. We are at least 3-4 years away from being able to buy a house & being financially secure enough to bring some little Colin/Allison's into the world. At times, I think "WHO CARES. I want this stuff now!" But I know the smartest decision is to wait. Bah. I suck at being  patient.

On a less whiny note, I've been feeling a little under the weather today. Whenever I'm sick, I like to wear my "Eat your veggies shirt" (at the bottom it says, "before they eat you!") by Marty May. It's pretty stinking adorable.

I 100% agree about the babys and houses comment. It is so amazing to me that people I know are prego and even MARRIED! Sure got here fast!

i know just how you feel! i'm getting married at the end of the month. i'm a 25 yr old college grad and still don't quite know what i'll do with my life. it's hard not compare myself with friends/bloggers that have cute little homes. but we have our tiny apartment, and we will be happy :)

emily - i know time flies! although, my ceremony is coming up quickly. right now everyone's favorite question is "when are you getting married?!" but i'm sure it will soon transition to, "when are you having babies?!"

CBJ - Nothing wrong with tiny apartments right?! :) I have really grown to love mine though, and C and I have worked really hard to make it our own.
