25 Texts You've Sent If You're The 'Mom Friend'

"I'm bringing snacks."

Mom friends usually get a healthy amount of teasing from their friends about the things they worry about, but we only worry because we care. Yes, that's why we texted you three times in a row, and no, we're not going to stop because you laughed at the fourth notification.

1. Are you home safe?

It's important that I know you are.

2. How are you feeling?

The partner text to a rowdy night.

3. Drink some water.

Staying hydrated is important.

4. How's your paper going?

You had a busy week this week and it's important someone checks in on you.

5. A happy holidays text in the group message

Squad greetings.

6. Where are you?

Because you're picking someone up at some point and everyone knows it.

7. Time to go

You don't need to call your ex, you need to get home and get in bed.

8. What time are we meeting at the library?

Group study sessions are mom friend approved for sure.

9. You should wear that [insert clothing item here].

It's important to hype up your friends.

10. Don't talk about your mom like that.

We stick with real moms, as honorary moms.

11. Your parents were great!

Because if your friends' parents are coming into town you're going to meet them.

12. Did your parents like me?

Parental approval is important to everyone, but mom friends kind of need it.

13. Don't drink too much!

It's common sense, but it's important someone actually says it.

14. Let me take a picture of you guys when you get here

Your friends have a new boyfriend and it's your duty as mom friend to photograph it.

15. You got this!

Encouragement is key.

16. I'm worried about you

Honestly, we're always worried.

17. Here's the plan

You've got a schedule ready and everyone better get there on time.

18. Don't forget [followed by literally anything]

You're like a built in calendar.

19. What is everyone doing tonight?

Checking in? Always.

20. I'm bringing snacks

Even if you're not hosting, you're always kind of hosting.

21. I have that

Whether it's an extra blanket, white out, or a bandaid. You have it and you'll bring it to your friend in need.

22. Be safe

Important and translates to "I love you."

23. I'll have my phone on

Tinder date? Your friends are going out partying without you? The volume on your ringer is up and you're ready to save the day.

24. I got a card

Everyone just needs to sign it.

25. I'm coming over

Because sometimes a text isn't enough.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hot air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

Ranch is by far the best condiment and maybe even the best thing to ever come out of the Midwest. Anyone who dislikes Ranch is wrong. It goes on everything from sandwiches, burgers, and wings to salads, fries, cheese curds, and tortilla chips. I don't just love Ranch I admire it. It makes bad food taste delicious, it cools your mouth after something spicy. Some might even say there love for ranch has ended every argument they've ever had. It's truly the best thing ever.
