Things I Keep Doing No Matter What Age

Today, I'm wrapping up my three part "series" by sharing with you a list of things that I will probably always love and continue doing no matter what age.

Disney Movies - Any movie with music gets a shot with me, but Disney movies will always have a special spot in my heart. I think Beauty and the Beast is still my favorite and I love the new one, but Princess & the Frog is a close second. Also, all John Hughes movies.

Pizza + Mac & Cheese - These two items will always be my favorite. We have been trying all kinds of different variations of each, but my favorite recently was this Street Corn Pizza from A Beautiful Mess.

Bubble Hockey Champion - I think this was all the hockey tournaments out of town as a child that formed my amazing bubble hockey skills. We found a few places in the city where you can play this and it has reignited my obsession.

Watching Animal Videos - Have you ever gotten completely sucked into the YouTube hole of animal videos? This is a common event in my life. It can be puppies, unlikely animal friends, funniest home videos. I can't get enough. It's what I do if I'm having a bad day - no matter where.

Early Riser - For at least the last decade, I have been a morning person. I'm the annoying person that can get out of bed and be wide awake and ready for the day. I love sunrises, hot coffee and quiet before everyone else is awake. In fact, I'm writing this post at 5:30 on a Friday morning, the coffee is brewing, the sun is coming up and everyone else is sleeping.

Overusing Emojis - I will not apologize for this. I love those tiny little pictures and would prefer to just communicate with those most of the time.

Being a Dog Person - I think this is obvious, but I just wanted to include a picture of Quincy & Lola.

Meatless Diet - I have been a pescatarian for over five years now and I don't really see any reason to ever go back to eating meat. It's rare now that I even eat fish. I haven't missed it at all and have definitely gotten to a healthier place, so it would feel weird to ever go backwards. Has anyone else ever gone back to eating meat? I'm always so curious about that.

Forever Posing Awkwardly in Photos- Thumbs up seems to be my go-to move, but I've had all kinds of awkward poses. I just feel weird getting my picture taken. I've accepted that I will never be part of T Swift's squad because I just don't have a future as a supermodel.

Sending Mail - One of my favorite things is opening the mailbox and seeing something with real people's handwriting on it. Because of this happy feeling, I make sure to send as much mail as possible. One of my best friends from college moved to San Francisco the same year we moved. Because of the time difference and our crazy schedules, we started sending letters in the mail and it's been wonderful. Plus, it's the best way to communicate with my grandma who has no cell phone or answering machine.
