My Nerdy Thirties

Good morning!

So that list… certain parts of it make me cringe.  Why include the tools with the bra?  Will women only buy tools if bras are also on the shopping list?  Also, what kind of umbrella is shame-inducing?  Honestly, if I still had my New Kids umbrella (you read that right), I would rock that bad boy all the time.  However, after reading your thoughts regarding Turning 30 and All The Things That We Should Have Done But Haven’t So Now We Should Feel the Heavy Burden of Shame, I wanted to share my own take, which is tentatively titled Turning 30 and How I Stay Young At Heart While Remaining Mature In Brain.

As we’ve discussed, I LOVE a good list – yes please. Continue reading
