    […] For the first time in my life, I’ve wrapped my head around the importance of financial responsibility, and made some great progress paying off my debt and getting a handle on a budget. Does this mean I’m officially a grown-up? […]

  • […] The first post I actually ran across a couple days ago, and it got me thinking about my own life.  I made a mental note to do a take on her list, doing a “30 things I didn’t think I’d do before I turned 30″, but the idea fizzled… …until today.  During a Pinterest spree, I came across this Huffington Post article and thought it would tie in quite well with the A Pretty Penny post.  So, without further adieu (ado?  I’ve become a little self-conscious about which spelling is correct.  Anyone know?  I know I could look it up on Google, but I’m feeling lazy today.)  And because of course checklists, I will proceed to disclose whether or not I’ve accomplished the things on the Huff Post article, along with personal stories.  Because I can.  […]

    #17, word. up. sister. I’m turning 30 this year, and am *not* really sad to say good bye to my 20’s yet. Although I hear it makes online dating a little tougher ;)

    Also: I love (lovelove!) this look. Those shorts are fab! Tried to snag a pair myself, but they’re sold out online.

    This year (my 27th) is officially the year of “never say never”…..I feel like I’ve learned the most about myself in the past 2-3 years. Currently training for a 1/2 marathon. I’m pretty sure that once in my life I said I would never run over a mile.
    Also, I do prefer flats to heels. They just make my aging feet feel so good!!!

    Great post my dear. All so true and I find myself agreeing with many.

  • Amy 06/21/2012 at 11:24 am

    great post

  • Hannah (@chill_air) 06/21/2012 at 8:19 am

    Awe, I love this list! I’m 25, and you’re making me want to create a “Things To Do Before The End Of My 20s” List. Them, of course, I’ll do one of these once I turn 30 :)

    Also, that hi-lo top looks fab on you!

    xo,

    Love this! I just turned 28 (yesterday!), and I feel like I should write my own – good reminder to notice/appreciate the growth and maturity and change that comes with getting older when I’m feeling a little iffy about that new 28 number… (And my mom will love hearing that I now believe she was always right – especially as one of her favorite phrases to use on us was always “never say never”.)

    lovely lovely post, you look stunning!!

    omg you are so beautiful !♥♥

  • Jessica 06/20/2012 at 1:47 pm

    Great list! I’m only 28 and have already found many gray hairs. It feels much too soon!

  • Frannie Pantz 06/20/2012 at 1:21 pm

    This is a great list and I can relate to it very well. When I was younger my grandmother used to tell me to be a lawyer. I said that sounded really boring. Now I’m 30 and work in the law field. Go figure. I love your shorts. In fact, it was YOU that inspired me to buy them. I wore them very recently, in fact, on Monday and did a post. Thanks!

  • Erika 06/20/2012 at 12:48 pm

    Thanks for admitting to finding grey hairs before you’re 30. I found some too, and I felt like the only one!

  • Amy 06/20/2012 at 12:36 pm

    Great post! I love 16 – my mom was right about regretting the tattoo I got when I was 18, but I’ll never tell her :-)

  • SWFTerra 06/20/2012 at 12:25 pm

    I agree 100% with more of those points than I’d like to admit. {Whatever happened to Eric and Julie Season 1??}

    Those shorts. Exactly something I’ve been yearning for. Love this head to toe.

  • Advnturesspirit 06/20/2012 at 12:21 pm

    Love the wedges and although I am only 24 I can attest to 16 out of 20 which means that by the time my 20s are over I’ll be 20 for 20 :D

  • kaylasboyleKayla 06/20/2012 at 12:05 pm

    I love this list. What does it say about me that I’m gonna turn 28 next month and already feel all of them. Except the minivan. I think I’ll stick that one out for when I finally give in to some kiddos.

    A Refreshed Take Off

    • keiralennox 06/20/2012 at 12:13 pm

      It says it makes me feel better about my list! Ha! ;-) My minivan thing really blows my mind.

    • keiralennox 06/20/2012 at 12:14 pm

      Oh, and I’ll be turning 28 this year, too.

  • musingsoftheamusingmuse 06/20/2012 at 12:01 pm

    And you look great wearing the shorts! I love your outfits and your specs – fantastic!
