12 Ways To Tell If You're A Soccer Mom

12 Signs You're A Future 'Soccer Mom'

~Embracing the inevitable~.

The "soccer mom"...easily identifiable, often traveling in packs and sporting Jack Rogers and/or Lululemon. They are the loudest ones on the sidelines, annoyingly into yoga, and the people you want to babysit for. They're also mom goals. If you've ever caught yourself thinking "I'm so going to end up being a soccer mom", it's probably due to at least one of these reasons:

1. You grew up in a suburb.

Once in a bubble-world, always in a bubble-world. The idea of a small town where everyone knows everyone may be what you're trying to get away from right now, but one day, you admittedly want to return to the utopia.

2. You're a babysitter.

It takes a special kind of person to be able to deal with children all day long. Especially when you're young and they're not even yours.

3. You're great with parents.

...And you pretty much know it. (Hey, future).

4. You don't mind running errands.

At all, actually. It's basically like a hobby for you.

5. You're a pro-level gossiper.

Nothing keeps you more entertained than knowing whose family friend's daughter is dating whose neighbor's cousin.

6. You love Pinterest more than the average person.

You're pin boards say it all. Future home, you're in good hands.

7. You pick up your younger siblings from school.

Hey fam, just practicing!

8. You drive a sensible yet flashy car.

Anything mid-sized or Audi-like will do.

9. You always have snacks on hand.

There's a granola bar in my bag in case anyone gets hungry!

10. "Coffee dates" with your girlfriends is something you regularly participate in, in all seriousness.

Gotta get the latest gossip while simultaneously invading the local Starbucks

11. You love to host.

Cocktail party meets BBQ cookout?! Yes, please, I already have my outfit picked out and a Pinterest board of decorations and drinks made.

12. You live by your calendar.

Planners are the holy grail. How else would you make spin class, your appointments, and get all your errands done?

To a generation of future cool moms, ;~).

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.
