Am I too old? Earring edition.

13 Dec

If there is one fear, anxiety or thing I hate in this word, It’s getting older. I don’t like to act older, look older or have responsibilities of said older people. If I could freeze time and be a senior in college forever, I would have.


Anywho, I also hate when I can no longer do things because they are deemed “too young” for me to be partaking in. There are a few things I have been itching to do in fear that all too soon I will be “too old” to do them.

#1. Get another piercing.

I currently have three piercings, my normal two ear lobes and another piercing about half way up my ear. That third was my biggest rebellion move of life, not even joking. {story time} My mom always told me while I was living under her roof, I was only allowed two piercings, the two I already had. I went to college freshman year and in a super cliche move, got the third piercing. I was with my mom getting a new passport photo taken when the door to the post office opened, the wind blew my hair back, and my mom saw the piercing I was trying to hide. She. Was. So. Mad. But has since gotten over it and now admits it is classy πŸ˜‰

See that tiny, itty, bitty diamond stud? That is what my mom freaked out about. Sorry about the awkward, grainy, red picture…iphone.

Before I get too old, I want to get another piercing. This picture makes me really want to get my cartilage pierced and get a love earring. Thoughts? Is there an age where one is “too old” to get a new piercing?

Is this “love” earring innapro for a 23 year old working girl to sport? Ugh. Decisions.


Things that make me happy today:

1. Today is the 13th, which means it is going to be a good day.

2. Seeing New Years Eve tonight (and my future hubby Zac)

3. Cocktail Bling. Seriously? New favorite color. I recently bought a few of these as stocking stuffers!

    I saw this pic on Pinterest and became obsessed with finding this earring. One day I was browsing the jewelry section in Wal Mart and stumbled upon a LOVE earring on clearance for $3.00!! I’m going to get my cartilage pierced again today (had it a few years ago and took it out). I’m super excited that I found this!!

    My aunt, at the ripe age of 45, with a husband, and 3 daughters, got her nose pierced. With just a simple classy diamond sparkling in the light, she looks great with it. I asked her why she waited so long, and her response was, “she was always afraid of what others would think, would it fit her personality, would fellow moms judge her, etc.,” so after years of hiding behind what other people thought, she finally just did it. And you know what? Everyone loved it!! Her only regret, she wished she had trusted herself and did it sooner.

    Ugh, don’t even tell me about getting older … it’s seriously the worst feeling haha. I’m 23 as well and wish I was like 18! Def not digging getting older πŸ˜‰ As for the piercing, do it! It’s nothing outrageous and I know you’ll love it once it’s done πŸ™‚
