Friday Fill In The Blank Fun

It's Friday again, and lately I've been feeling as if time is literally flying by and I'm physically feeling older by the minute.  Which I guess in reality, I AM getting older by the minute (thankfully!) but I just wish I didn't feel like it.  By feel, I mean, hard to get out of bed in the morning, really stiff all the time, feeling the need to drink at least 3 or more cups of coffee before I can complete a correct sentence, and forehead wrinkles deepening more and more everyday.  Oh, and my kids growing up so fast before my eyes that it just generally makes me feel OLDER.



{I envision myself as the wrinkly tired looking Shar Pei on right!}

The theme for my Friday fill in the blank fun is going to be around the "Aging Process."  Like I said before, I AM thankful that I am greeting a new day every morning, even if it does mean having to apply a bit more primer to fill in those wrinkles and wearing hats until the next salon visit for a dye job!  If you want some of the best age defying beauty secrets, check out this article from Prevention magazine on Helen Mirren's look from the 2012 Golden Globes.  This lady gives me hope for what 30 years down the road could look like!

I will provide 5 short fill in the blank questions, that I will then post my answers to within the comment section (so you'll have to click on the section to see them!). I would love love to see your answers as well! Just copy and paste the following questions and fill them in the comment section for everyone else to see.

1.  The thing that excites me the most about getting older is _____.

2.  The thing that scares me the most about getting older is ______.

3.  The older I get, the more I need of this makeup product _______.

4.  My favorite age so far has been _______.

5.  When I'm feeling really old and tired, I _______ to perk myself up!


I've always loved the quote by Mark Twain, "Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."  So I'm going to try and live by that motto and quit pysching myself out that I'm getting so old.  Age ain't nothin' but a number right??!   Have a wonderful and vibrant weekend everyone!

1. The thing that excites me the most about getting older is seeing who my kids will become when they become adults and what they will decide to do with their lives.

2. The thing that scares me the most about getting older is the obvious, death. I'm okay with dying as long as I get to meet all of my grandchildren.

3. The older I get, the more I need of this makeup product - foundation and concealer! I need both to cover up the dull skin and age spots!

4. My favorite age so far has been the age I am now. Yes it has come with some challenges, but I do think I'm having more genuine fun w my kids than I did as a kid myself.

5. When I'm feeling really old and tired, I drink a good martini to perk myself up!
