It Was Ok Then, And It Is Ok Now!



1. Disney Movies: At age 5 Disney movies were the best. I laughed at all the funny things the characters did to entertain me with their innocent dialogue. At 25, that innocent dialogue transforms into a story that is so relatable and yanks at my heartstrings.

What I thought was the funniest thing ever at 5...
Is now what I cry uncontrollably at, at 25...

2. Cry On Mom's Shoulder: Sure we may have boyfriends, fianc├ęs, husbands... but nothing is more soothing than calling up mom and just crying about the problem. Guys just don't understand how our minds work, but mom always does, and always will. 


3. Sleepovers: At age 5 we used to stay up with our girlfriends playing truth or dare, pretty pretty princess and giggling our way through the night. At 25 our sleepovers are every night thanks to roommates! Instead of truth or dare we simply refer to it as juicy gossip, engagement rings replaced pretty pretty princess and the giggles are caused by an overload of cupcakes and champagne!


4. Lunchables: Best lunch EVER! I remember I would (still) only use a little bit of the sauce and cheese on the first two pizzas and then make a super mega pizza for the third pizza! Plus, they always came with Capri Sun! An adult needed to poke that hole for you because it seemed easier solving Pi than attempting to get the straw into that hole! But today at 25 I still love these, and with only 300 calories they are the perfect size for a treat that feels like cheating, but it's not!
5. Jumping in Rain Puddles: We have more fun now because we have an extra set of feet to play with us...

Age 5...
Age 25...

  1. This is such a sweet post! There's nothing better/more needed after a bad day than a long talk with mama!

  2. I still have a love of Disney movies! And since I don't live in the same state as my mom, daily phone chats are a must. I don't think I'll ever outgrow it!

  8. OMG! Disney Movies ... The only time I never felt guilty about having a crush on cartoons. Aladdin could get it. Simba too ... Not because I'm into animals ... But because JTT was the voiceover ;)

  15. Lunchables will always always always be acceptable. And you get bonus points for talking about the pizza ones. We all know you were cooler if you had the pizza ones.

  16. I completely agree with all of this! Absolutely! I looove the rain especially.

  17. All very true! When Pete and I broke up, I went straight to my mom's house. Not my friends, just my mommy. Totally ok :)

  18. i agree with all of this except lunchables that shit is nasty! I am over it though because my agreement with #1 is so strong. My gaybor and I used to watch Aladdin every single weekend after the bar.

  21. Yes! Love these. Disney movies seem to just get better and better. And adult sleepovers...I think booze definitely helps make those so much fun!

  22. Watching Disney movies at your mom's house with your friends while you're eating a lunchable and it's raining outside. Yeh, I went there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I looooove Lunchables!! I don't get them much anymore because Boyfriend hates having them around the house, but man oh man, I kind of miss them sometimes! I would always make the super mega ultra pizza for the last one, too.. It just seemed so much better that way!

    ReplyDelete
  24. This list is the best. I agree with every single thing! Oh Disney, never leave me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love this! And yes, the older I get, the more I appreciate my tastes as a child... :)

  26. I must be the only weirdo that never like pizza lunchables. Gimme the cracker sandwiches any day! I used to have to beg Mom to buy them and she only would on special occasions haha. Cute post Miss Sarah!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is such a great post! And I totally did the same thing with my pizza lunchable - go super light with the toppings on the first two and all out on the third one. My husband and I still eat those for lunch sometimes? :)
