1. Donut obsession: still going strong. My tastebuds are definitely maturing with this incoming older age. Paired with hot chocolate, I am a total grown up! Prepare to see me on an episode of Intervention.

2. You know your husband loves you when he tells you that back in the summer he attempted to contact Miranda Lambert’s publicist to try and get her to play at your 30th birthday party. No luck, but ummm… that’s amazing.

3. Stop the presses. My childhood dreams have come true. Cory and Topanga might be back.

4. And speaking of… just in case you’re wondering why Pacey Witter is my crush for life.

5. You know something random my mom always taught me to do? Take my clothes out of fitting rooms after I finished trying them on. Um, I ALWAYS do this. It’s like ingrained in me or something. And it’s a really sore subject with me. It may take me three hours to clean the kitchen after I make a mess, but rest assured I never leave fitting rooms a mess. Probably because I’m high from retail therapy.

6. Since I’ve been wearing out my welcome with butternut squash, I have a TON of room left to be obsessed with pumpkin. Therefore, I will be making this pumpkin beer bread like ASAP.

7. You know how I can tell I’m getting old? Well. I am a HUGE sap for Christmas and holidays. I just adore them, I love that time of year and am obsessed with the memories it brings and all the time I get to spend with my family. Blah blah blah. So it’s only natural that I am one of those annoying chicks that likes to listen to Christmas music on November 1st. Once, I even convinced my husband to put up our tree on like, November 5th. But… I tried to listen to it last week and it just felt… wrong. I can’t do it. Wah!

8. Last year I shared this hilarious video compilation that Jimmy Kimmel put together of parents telling kids they ate all of their Halloween candy. OMG. I think I might have died of hysterics. Here is the new one and while I don’t think it’s quite as great as last year, it’s still pretty funnaaay.

9. Indulge me. It’s the last day of my twenties and therefore the last day I will really feel comfortable posting something like this article about how your twenties really are versus how you thought they would be. The first one? Um yes.

10. I’m currently making a list of things to do in my thirties and the first one is to not eat a large bowl of mashed potatoes for lunch. Like, only mashed potatoes. Because I definitely might have done that today. Getting it out of my system now!

11. There are two very important things on this list that plague me ALWAYS. #6 and #11. Oomph.

    Boy Meet World sequel?!?!?! That made my day. Pumpkin beer bread would too.

    Katie @ Blonde Ambition — November 6, 2012 @ 5:07 pm

    Haha that Boy Meets World spinoff sounds awful, but if Cory and Topanga are on board, I am SO IN.

    Bobby pins. I am down to three right now. They are all mismatching, but I’m trying to hold on to them with all my might so that I don’t have to go buy more that I will just inevitably lose…

    Happy Birthday to you tomorrow girl!

    Oh, the videos on #8. Thank you for that. I died!
    and…aviators make me look like an A-hole too.

    So about the fitting room thing, I’m the same way…cannot bear to leave anything behind. I always feel gross when I go into a fitting room and there’s a bunch of clothes strewn everywhere. I have no idea where I got that from. And about mashed potatoes for lunch…I have to have tons of sharp cheddar in it when I eat for leftovers. :D

    Liz — November 6, 2012 @ 5:12 pm

    #9 YES TO THIS ENTIRE LIST! I think about this ALL THE TIME! Why am I not as cool as I thought I would be in my twenties? Wasn’t i suppose to have my stuff together by now?

    Amanda — November 6, 2012 @ 5:19 pm

    I think your husband wins Best Husband of Ever for trying to get Miranda Lambert to perform for your 30th.

    Happy birthday tomorrow!

    Lauren Carnes — November 6, 2012 @ 5:19 pm

    I am ALL about a Boy Meets World spinoff.

    And girl, eat all the mashed potatoes you want! :)

    Jenna — November 6, 2012 @ 5:22 pm

    Pacey Witter, love of my life as well! Thought I was the only one (in my late 20s) who is still in love and madly obsessed with him. The obsession also counts for Joshua Jackson, which goes without saying.

    Agree with you on #6 and 11 on that list, although I need to add in 12-14 too. Kids on leashes? When did that become ok? And how do parents not feel like asses when walking with them? Ugh.


  10. #
    Laura Fagan — November 6, 2012 @ 5:22 pm

    Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) was my first celeb sighting when I moved to NYC in 2005 and I definitely followed him for a few blocks and definitely thought it was a sign.

    Corey and Topanga coming back to TV has solidified my belief in Friday night Televisions return. TGIF going away was the saddess part of my middle school years.

    Tania — November 6, 2012 @ 5:26 pm

    THANK YOU for sharing that article about what you imagine your 20s would be like. Hilarious, but oh so true.


  14. #
    Maggie @ A Bitchin' Kitchen — November 6, 2012 @ 5:28 pm

    Yes to #5! I used to work retail back in college, and I haaaaated when people left their clothes in a balled up pile. So gross. People need to follow your example :)

    Kacy — November 6, 2012 @ 5:29 pm

    Ohmagah, Boy Meets World. That is amazing.
    I still don’t get the Pacey thing though. I’m on season 2 of the rewatch and hoping it comes to me, but so far I think I’d rather bang Joey or Jen if I had to choose.
    Mashed potatoes as a last lunch of your twenties? Best. Ideal. Ever.
    Enjoy the rest of the day!

    Maren — November 6, 2012 @ 5:29 pm

    okay I would die if they had a boy meets world sequel…as long as it’s as great as the original! Happy almost Birthday!! Oh and I totally agree with #6 and #11 on TC. Seriously, I look absolutely ridiculous in aviators too. I would spend the money on Ray-Bans if they looked good on me!

    josie — November 6, 2012 @ 5:30 pm

    Katie — November 6, 2012 @ 5:32 pm

    Seriously, bobby pins. Where are you running off to? And the thing that baffles me is that I NEVER find them.


    • Jessica — November 6th, 2012 @ 5:33 pm

      hahaha they are like socks.

    Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar — November 6, 2012 @ 5:36 pm

    Truth: Donuts will always be in my life. And Pacey Witter is MINE!

    ahhh that pumpkin beer bread looks awesome. I love cooking with beer, if i can stop drinking it long enough to pour it into the pan. Ahem.

    Since you are in the Pittsburgh area, please tell me you’ve been to Peace, Love and Little Donuts! http://www.peaceloveandlittledonuts.com/home.html Also, if you ever visit NYC, go to Doughnut Plant and get the PB&J doughnut! http://doughnutplant.com/
    Aww man, it hurts thinking about doughnuts and not having any.


    • Jessica — November 6th, 2012 @ 6:38 pm

      Yes, love it!!

    Rose — November 6, 2012 @ 6:12 pm

    Sometimes I think I’m losing my mind when I buy a new pack of like 200 bobby pins and can’t find them a week later… growing up a competitive dancer, this problem has Seriously plagued me all my life. It’s ridiculous… where Do they go… ?

    Question about your photography: how id you get those beautiful out-of-focus sequiny lights in this shot? Is that an phone ap, or just how the light was hitting the donut?

    Averie @ Averie Cooks — November 6, 2012 @ 6:57 pm

    That donut looks great right about now! And happy 21st bday. I know you’ll got out with a bang on your last night of being underage :)

    Chrysa — November 6, 2012 @ 7:24 pm

    I turned 30 earlier this year, and I have to say, I’m lovin’ it. Ironically, I keep thinking how in about three months, I turn 31. 30 was poetic. And monumental. 31? not so much. :) Have a very happy birthday, girl! (from one sprinkle-obsessed girl to another)

    Tiffany — November 6, 2012 @ 7:31 pm

    Hey we have the same birthday tomorrow! Enjoy it – I’ll be 33 and I think every year after 26 gets less painful…

    ohmy GOD #5 THANK YOU
    i work at tjmaxx and the fitting room is always a total disaster.
    i don’t want to hang up your inside out, half-buttoned up clothes after picking them up off the floor. i don’t.


  38. #
    Gabriela — November 6, 2012 @ 11:27 pm

    PACEY WITTER!!! Just read that article and died. He was the best.

    Also, I chose my first because it was the same car that Andie McPhee had. In 2005, several years after the series had ended. Embarrassing but I’m slightly proud…?

    amy — November 7, 2012 @ 12:06 am

    #5 — its just good manners, and being civilized.
    like not littering and not ditching your unwanted items anywhere you see fit in the grocery store!

    A BMW reunion series would rock my world! Even better would be a Dawson’s Creek series. Heck, I’d take just a reunion special episode (or movie!!!). #paceywitterismyboyfriend

    Heather@SugarDish(Me) — November 7, 2012 @ 8:12 am

    Always clean the fitting room!!! Uggghhhh. I hate it when you wanna try something on and you wander around in the little fitting room hallway trying to decide if someone is ACTUALLY using it or if the previous tenant was just a complete lazy slob.
    I wait till Thanksgiving for Christmas music but my brother-in-law is allllllll over that mess. And he VEHEMENTLY HATES Christmas Shoes, branding it THE WORST Christmas song ever so we subject him to it whenever possible. Christmas Shoes… love or hate?


    • Jessica — November 7th, 2012 @ 8:14 am

      OMG hate. hate hate hate. worst song ever. so depressing.


  43. #
    Yvonne — November 7, 2012 @ 8:58 am

    I agree with you on dressing rooms. I hate when people are rude and leave the clothes all over the place. Probably comes from working retail in college.

    The best it yet to come. 30’s beat 20’s hand down.

    Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings — November 7, 2012 @ 9:22 am

    COREY AND TOPANGA! My sister sent out a mass family text (there are 7 of us in the fam) letting us know– I’ll be watching this show :)

    Hi Jessica. First time commenting but have been reading your blog for a while now. Absolutely love your posts! Just wanted to let you know in case you didn’t already that Boy Meets World reruns are on MTV2 in the afternoon. For the longest time, I had been looking for a channel that was rerunning this show after ABC Family stopped and sure enough, I found it on MTV2 while I was home last week due to Sandy. Can’t ever get enough of that show! Btw, Happy Belated Birthday!
