Growing Up: Awkward and Awesome

I Don't Want To Grow Up!

"I want to stay single and ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset"  (Disney) 

Or as Lia would say "Take me to Neverland!" (also Disney. Duh) 
(She has a HUGE crush on the Peter Pan from OUAT, BTW) 

Why do we have to grow up?

So here are some Awkward and Awesome parts of growing up


  • People talk to you in the grocery store and you automatically look over your shoulder for Mum. Also most of the time it's dudes. 
  • I'm sorry, I know a lot of girls are dreaming of the day when random guys will ask them for their number or just strike up a conversation....but it is really annoying. 
  • When you and your brother go out to Chipotle, people think you are a couple. 
  • When you go out to eat and people think you are ordering a alcoholic drink and you just have to look at them and say, "I'll have tea."  (Ok. This only happened once) 
  • You take a quiz on "How Responsible Are You" and it's like "95%! We guess your age to be about 35. (What?! So much for the rebellious teenager thing) 
  • But your still not old enough to go skydiving. *SIGH* 
  • People ask what your majoring in. I'm in High School!
  • Guy in his late twenties asked for my number at Subway. Had to explain I was underage.
  • Waiter offered me a free margarita at a Mexican restaurant
  • When someone asks you for your phone number or talks to you and you go to say "Hello?! I'm 15!" But then you realize your not 15 anymore....
  • Guys just keep asking us for our numbers!!!!!!


  • Driver's Permits/Licenses
  • More Freedom
  • You can actually start planning your life, applying for college, etc
  • You can start checking stuff off your bucket list. (Except the skydiving...) 
  • First Cell Phone! (Except I lost it....whoops) 
  • You can buy your own books *Mwuhahahaha*
  • You can also buy your own coffees....
  • The fact that Lia pretended she was deaf to escape talking to some random dude at the Post Office. (I can't believe I actually did that...)
  • Makeup 
  • Shopping with your mother and actually getting to pick your own clothes
  • People start valuing your opinion as an adult (kind of scary but still awesome)

Well that's all for this.
We had a lot of fun. Enjoy!

  1. I once had to explain to a HOTTT waiter that I was only 20 when he offered me wine! Awkward!

  2. Haha. This was most enjoyable to read. You girls are FUNNY! :)

    "Guys just keep asking us for our numbers!!!!!!" Hahaha. I'm afraid I can't sympathize with you on that one. No guy has ever asked me for my phone number. :P

    "But then you realize your not 15 anymore...." *chuckle* Really, though. Where does the time go?

    Fun post, girls!! :D

Bibliophile Tag!!!!!

Hello everyone!

I was tagged by Catherine at from the Rebelling Muse to take the Bibliophile Tag.

So here we go!

The rules are:
Link back to her and tell her you answered her questions.

And to share with other bloggers, which I will do at the end.

1. What is your favorite fantasy novel/series?
Honestly, Catherine, you have no clue how hard it is to pick just one. So I won't!! :P
My top picks are Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Heroes of Olympus, and the
Lunar Chronicles. My favorite novel is Heartless by Marissa Meyer. All really great reads!

2. What is your favorite historical novel?
The Virginian by Owen Wister. This book has just the right amount of wild west, romance, sarcasm, and wit to satisfy anyone.

3. What is your favorite contemporary novel?
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer. It's a really cute story. There's a sequel but it's not as good as the first one.

4. What character/book best describes your personality?
The Blue …

Awkward and Awesome: Assorted Stuff

When you see a cute skirt and then hold it up to show your Mom. Oh never mind. You can see right through it. When your reading a great book and you get to one of those parts where you just have to put the book down and give your brain time to register what just happened. Then you glance at your alarm clock and see it's 2 am and you notice that your eyeballs are being to burn. (But there is only five chapters left so you finish it.)When your walking through the parking lot with your Mom and see a giant pick up truck. You can't help, but stare a little. (What? I happen to like pickup trucks)  Then you notice the person inside (read: guy) staring back at you with an amused smile. Oops.That one day you don't shower, just throw in whatever and run to the store to buy ice cream...well, apparently your lazy days are "ALL CUTE BOYS GO GROCERY SHOPPING DAY"Awesome!
