  • Bought an over the range microwave
  • Mr. Charming got a new pair of glasses and contacts
  • Booked inner island flight and car rental for Hawaii 
  • Went to church

Go Us! 🙂

Life Stages

Awkward: That pretty much explains my current life stage.  I feel like I have been reflecting on it WAY too much lately and am finding myself in a rut because of it.  I’m 25, married, with no kids who loves to sleep.  Mr. Charming and I one day will love to have a family, but when we got married, wanted to travel and just spend time together before having kids.  His whole 2 years of traveling kind of threw a wrench in the last part of the previous sentence.  We have had the chance to travel to Europe and FINALLY booked our vacation to Kauai and Maui for the end of this year.  Before we have kids, I have my list of places I want to go because my philosophy is you never know when you might get back (if ever).  Here is my list (random tanget I know) in no particular order: San Francisco (Mainly to see Alcatraz), Phoenix (Grand Canyon), Caribbean Cruise/Disneyworld, Europe again (Back to Germany & Italy), and Maui (which is soon to be crossed off).  Anyways, back to the topic.

I would say that 98% of my friends have kids.  It’s like being 25 and having no kids is something not typical.  I feel like I don’t relate to them because mainly what they talk about is their kids.  Granted it’s not like I have a lot to talk about so talking about their kids doesn’t bug me.  Just being at a different life stage is akward. 

Maybe I should start popping out kids to fit in….Just Kidding. 🙂
