On Being a 24 Year Old Granny

You know what I did this weekend? 

Absolutely nothing, if you go by standards of what makes up a typical weekend for most 20-somethings. But for me, a low-key weekend of no plans makes my face light up more than a weekend full of events and running around from place to place. Now before you peg me for a completely boring married old lady (I know that I said it, you didn't) Ian and I are lucky to have a great network of friends and do enjoy being little social butterflies from time to time, but to balance those weekends out we are both the type of people who just need a couple days to chill. To wake up without an alarm, lay around all day with nowhere to be, drink wine and watch movies...incidentally, that is what the past several weekends have looked like for us. I blame the weather. 

I think that in this day and age it's really hard to just be OK with doing nothing. I struggle with it too, because I wonder if I should feel more guilty about not being out and about all the time, but it really all just comes down to the fact that I am way more content to just take it easy and relax on my time off than to go out and spend a ton of money at a bar and wish I was at home at 10pm. But the great thing is, when I DO feel like doing those things, I do, and I brag on Facebook and Instagram about it just like everybody else. So I really don't know why I spend so much time worrying about it. 

All that to say, I hope you had a wonderful weekend doing whatever you do best, whether it's being a busy socialite, or eating homemade cookies off of grandma plates. Because either of those are acceptable options.


  1. do whatever makes you happy. staying home on a saturday night is a huge treat for me. i love just relaxing and doing nothing!

  2. I totally get you on this!! I love doing nothing and it sounds just awful to say it. My husband likes to get out more then I do but he will stay in and then the next weekend he'll need to do something whereas I could probably be okay with staying in every weekend!! So it's a good balance that he gets me out of the house.

  3. I love being home, granny plates and oh yeah, I am old. lol xo


Leave a comment and I'll bake you cookies. Maybe.
