I'm 30... yup, 30.  At what point do I consider myself a grown up?  I'm sure that all my little cousins consider me an old fogey but I'm not sure I consider myself an adult.

Yes, I realize that I do grown up things like work a full time job, got married, had a kid, and even bought a house.  Does doing all those things really make me an adult?  I'm not sure.

This past weekend my husband and I were talking about goofy moments and the one that keeps cracking me up is from my brother's wedding.  I didn't do anything at the wedding but after.  Sometimes I can be entirely way too serious but I've kind of always been that way, even as as little kid.  Every once in a while I get really goofy and the jokes and pranks just don't stop.  

My brother's wedding was fun.  We did all the regular wedding festivities early morning picking up the bride (who is one of my best friends) going to the hotel, hair, drinks, make-up, etc.  Then of course the wedding, dinner, then the after wedding stuff at the bar.  Well, I had to head back to the hotel to put my daughter to sleep.  Once she was asleep, we left all the kids with my best friend's mom and all started to hang out.  Well, we were all goofing off and I don't know what came over me but there were these teenage girls walking down the hall and I snatched the door open and growled, "no laughing!"  If you could have seen the look on their faces... They were stunned.  I did follow it up quickly, as I laughed, "Just kidding!!"  

It was even funnier because even one of the people in the hotel room with us stopped laughing.  I've know this guy since I was like 15 years old and I guess I've never played jokes around him, he just about died after I said, "just kidding."

It occurred to me that I maybe regressing in life.  I think I'm turning into a teenager.  

Even if I am dressed like an adult...

I guess, I have been learning to live life a little less serious each day.  

I'm getting pretty good at it.
