Follow Us Monday Morning: I was featured!

Photobucket Hey!  I'm the Follow Us Monday Morning Hot Blog of the Week over at Frugality is Free!  How fun is that?  I'm super-excited!  I've only been participating in the blog hops for a couple of weeks now, but I've been having a lot of fun meeting new friends and reading new blogs! 

Thank you to everyone that has been to visit me Under the Big Oak Tree!  I love the company!  I'll be sure to pop over to your neck of the woods for a visit as well!  I blog during nap time and Grace's down time, so it might take me a little bit to get over to see all of you, but I'll get there!   See you soon! 

And if you haven't participated in Follow Us Monday Morning before, click the button at the top of the post and join in on the fun!!!! 


Now to answer the Follow Us Monday Morning question of the week! 

What birthday has hit you the hardest?


For me, the hardest birthday was year I turned 26.  It just hit me that in 4 years I would be 30 and I was nowhere near where I wanted to be in my life.  Joe and I were dating at the time and we had a date to go to breakfast on my birthday. Joe worked night work at the time, so we usually only saw each other on the mornings that I had off from work. 

We didn't live too far from each other, so that morning I walked over to his house and let myself in, walked upstairs, climbed into bed with him and cried!  Really!  All because I turned 26!  Silly, I know!  We laugh about it now but I think  he was really worried about  how I was going to react when I actually did turn 30.  Turned out, I was fine with 30.  Still not where I wanted to be (goal-wise) but 30 wasn't too bad! 

Boy, I sure wish I was turning 30 this year!  :)

Congratulations on being featured!

I had to laugh a bit at your 26 crisis birthday...my daughter is turning 26 this week! So, I'm trying to remember what 26 even felt like:) My answer would be 40...it sounds so grown up and I wasn't. Of course I'm now creeping into "just sounds old" and I'm still not grown up!

That's so strange, I was sure that I already commented on your post. Thank you again for participating in the blog hop, and I hope you got some extra followers because of the feature. I am trying to spread the word as much as I can, because the more participants the more new followers everyone will get. I really appreciate that you posted about the Follow Us Monday Morning blog hop again, and you are now entered into the Featured Blog drawing.

I would like to invite you to the The Wednesday Window . It is the place to feature your favorite blog post of the past week or so, for more details check out Frugality Is Free.

I think one of the reasons why I am upset about turning 30, is that I am nowhere near where I wanted to be. I know it sounds crazy, but I was so hoping to own a home by the time I was 30...and we are still renting.

Thank you for participating in last week’s Follow Us Monday Morning! I hope you will stop by and participate in this week’s Follow Us Monday Morning @ Frugality Is Free, the new linky will open up at 10 p.m. EST.
