First off, thanks for all of the birthday wishes everyone. Second, random.org has selected our winner as… Lee (who just turned 31 and is so far happy with it). That’s good news for us too, since we’re both staring down at 31 now. Congrats Lee!
Guess what today is? Sherry’s 30th birthday!

AGE ME… I love being 41! Never thought I’d say that!
Molly Teague says
AGE ME! I would be 4 again. I was just at the beach with my nephews and they are 4. They don’t have a care in the world, full of life, and free. Life is so sweet when you live with such adventure like they do.
… I’d love to be 18 again so I could go back to college and do it all over again!
Brianna Cernava says
AGE ME! I’m actually loving this age/stage in my life yeah 25
It’s my birthday, too, Sherri! I’m 27, and I love your blog! My boyfriend and I are also re-doing our apartment (not painting, but decorating, coordinating, etc.) and I love coming to your blog for some inspiration! If I could return to any age, I guess it would have to be 19 just because I would want to be back in Rome studying abroad. So fun. Other than that, I’m very happy with where I am! :) Happy Birthday to you, too!
Age me back to 29— it was a very good year!
Susan Jefferson says
Age me..today was a rough day at work so maybe 62
AGE ME! I love my current age (23). I am in dental school and I just got engaged to the most wonderful guy in the world! I couldn’t be happier and I know that I will look back on these days and wish I could relive them!
AGE ME – 23 is such a great age!
29…the year I became a mommy!
AGE ME! Loved age 20…aahhh to be back in college!
AGE ME! To be 24 again … missing my kids so much now that their all grown up.
Age Me! I would love to be 21 – last year of college, job in hand, and not a care in the world :)
AGE ME! to 25 once again!!!!
AGE ME! I would be 23 again- hanging out with friends, just finishing school, and just meeting my (now) husband!
Age Me! I can’t wait until I am 33 – 10 years with my husband, hopefully a great child, and a beautiful home!
AGE ME! Back to my 20s, just after college, young and carefree but with the benefit of what I know now!
AGE ME- can’t wait for the early bird special!
AGE ME! I’m enjoying my year of being 26!
Shalini Rajkumar says
16 would be my pick.
Angela Myers says
AGE ME…..to 18…I’d like do-over of my college years!
I’d love to be 16 again. Some of the best days of my life.
Age me! I’ll take 21 again.
AGE ME! …I would be 21 again.
Mat M says
AGE ME! I’d go back to 22 when I was studying abroad…. One of the best years of my life.
AGE ME! I’d be 22 again and relive our first year of marriage :)
AGE ME! I’d definitely go for 27. Such a great year!
Erin @ Small and Simple Things says
Happy birthday! 30 is a great age:)
AGE ME! – 10, when life was simple and homework was easy!
I would choose to stay in my late 20s forever if I could. Babies would stay young and sweet, and I’d still have energy to have adventures :)
“AGE ME!” Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind returning to my 30s, but ONLY if I can make the return trip knowing what I know now :o)
AGE ME! I’d love to be older so that I can meet my future children, since we haven’t been blessed with them yet.
Just had to say this was a beautiful entry. Sounds like they will be lucky to have you as a mom when the time comes.
Mrs. Yancey says
AGE ME! I’d love to be whatever age means I’m finished with graduate school!
AGE ME! I’d do seventeen again, easily. I was wide-eyed and romantic, and most of all, optimistic! :-)
I’d love to be 27/28 again. That’s the age I got married and started looking for a house with my hubs. I’d be a bit more selective with the house we chose and travel more! Since the house and the babe there hasn’t been nearly enough traveling.
“AGE ME” I would be 16 again, able to drive and yet very little responsibility!
Ashley W. says
Age me! I like the age I am now.. early/mid-20s!
Happy birthday, Sherry!!
I think I’d like to fast forward to 33. It just sounds like a good age…and I’ll be more established then with more projects completed on my house :)
oh, I’d do college again. definitely.
Sheri Green says
AGE ME! I’d love to go back to age 7 – no worries in the world except convincing mom & dad into letting you play outside when the weather is nice instead of doing homework :)
Lucia Cai says
age me, for me i like to stay my current age (23) since being in collage and collaborating with artists is where I want my life to be.
AGE ME…I think I’d jump ahead 1 year to 24. At that point, I’ll be moving to the East Coast to join my boyfriend after two years of long distance!
AGE ME! Man, would I love a do-over of those awkward adolescent years knowing what I know now :)
Sugar Cookie says
AGE ME! I’d love to go back to 24 and relive my first year as a newlywed. What a wonderful time!
Jill Eden says
I pick 33. It’s still a few months off, but I have a feeling it’s going to be one of the best yet.
AGE ME! I’m only 23, but I would go back to being 18 again, so I could do college over…hang out with my friends again, maybe change my major, all that fun stuff :)
Samantha Simmons says
I really want to be 30. I am 22, married, and all my friends are approaching 30 or already there. I don’t feel 22 at all and I can’t wait to see where my life takes me over the next few years.
Pick me!!!! If I could go back to any age, it would be 26….I felt grown-up, but still young…..I felt like I had everything before me…..it was a very exciting year for me.
If I could be any age again I’d choose to be 17.
I’d like to go back to age 23 to be able to re-do (not not do!) a couple things.
p.s. Happy Birthday Sherry! :)
Amber P. says
I’d like a do-over of my 20’s please!
AGE ME! I would be 21 again and reliving my last year of college before reality set in.
AGE ME!! I would love to be 5 again – a day full of craft time, naps and snacks!! :)
I LOVE the age I am right now! (24). I also love aging and everything that comes with new phases in life. Hopefully that will stick with me :-)
“AGE ME” I would love to be 10 again! Carefree summers at the
lake collecting shells!
I would love to be 30 again when I bought my first house.
Jessica K. says
Age me! I’m 24 and wouldn’t change it for any other age!
Krystle @ ColorTransformedFamily says
Happy Birthday Sherry!
If I could pick my age I would pick 25. It’s not too much younger than what I am now but really the optimal age for having a good healthy beauty and youthful look! I’m happy with where I am at though.
“AGE ME” I would be 31 again because that is how old I was when I met my wonderful husband.
Being in my 40’s has been wonderful. No desire to go back. Loving life!
Age me, please! I would love to be eight again. My memories of the time spent with my grandparents on the ranch are so precious to me, in part because there are so few of them. I would love to have that time back.
age me! happy birthday sherry!
Ana Brightful says
AGE ME! I love where I am right now. I’m always pretty content with my age. Sure beats the alternative. Happy birthday, Sherry!
I think I’d go back to being 17, but only for a short time. I don’t think I could handle the drama for long.
Amanda Miller says
I would love to be a teenager again! No responsibilities, living for the moment…
Brandi @ His Shabby Her Chic says
Age Me!! I think I’d go back to 26. I was old enough to know some stuff and have a decent job but young enough to not have creaky bones (or as creaky as 30 year old bones can get).
Happy Birthday Sherry!
AGE ME! I wouldn’t necessarily change my age because things are great now. That being said, 18 was really very fun!
Caitlin Cohen says
I’m loving the age i’m at now, 25. I have beautiful one year old daughter and another one on the way. My husband and I just bought our first house and we are loving life right now :)
I’m loving my age right now – 29 – as I’m a new mom and we’re buying our first house.
AGE ME! I’d love to be 20-ish and re-live my college years!
AGE ME! I love my stage right now, but I would love to do college again.
Age Me! I sometimes think about going back and doing college again. I sucked at it. I wouldn’t want to miss out on what I have now, though.
AGE ME – I would love to be 19 again. I would do some many things different!! But my current age of 35 is a great too :)
I’d go back to 24, which was my golden year (I was born on the 24th).
AGE ME!!!- I would love to be 10 again. Just to have that last year to be a girl, before Junior High started, when my dreams were still bigger than the sky and my self limitations were endless.
