My birthday is in nine days. Do you know how I know this? Because it’s on my driver’s license. But also because the cheerful customer service guy who helped me cancel my health insurance over the phone (I’m joining my contract company’s plan) told me so. This is the difference between me turning 37 and me turning 26. As an almost 37-year-old, I proactively called to cancel my insurance so I wouldn’t have to pay double premiums. As an almost 26-year-old, I got a tattoo of a mustache on my finger from Bubba at Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas after having a shot of Tequila at Reno’s Chop Shop Saloon down the street. Pretty happy about both of these decisions. Annnyhoo, while perusing one of my favorite SERIOUSLY FUN online shops—BAN.DO—I realized I needed a lot of SERIOUSLY FUN stuff & things in my 37th year of life. I thought I’d create a post of my current favorites and send them to my boyfriend share them with y’all. Take a look and let me know your favorites in the comments! (It’s the roller skates, I just know it.)
They text you an alarming amount of Golden Girl gifs and taco emojis. They’ve watched Serendipity and The Sweetest Thing with you 65+ times (and are completely onboard with that number going up). They never tire of your Kristen Wiig impressions. They spend an unmentionable amount of time taking selfies with you. They encourage you to swipe right… If you haven’t had a chance to get your favorite ladies a gift or two, allow my Last Minute Gift Guide for Your Girl Gang to inspire you. To all of my girl gang members out there, happy holidays. Love y’all.
