29 in year 29

Hello Friends!

Erin over at Living in Yellow posted a pretty cool post today. The 26 things she'd like to do in year 26 of her life and then, she decided to open it up to a link up! Sweet! I love when people come up with interesting content for my blog for me. Nothin' better!

Disclaimer: Gonna apologize for lack of photos right now. I've been freaked out lately by all the talk about getting sued for using images on your blog that aren't yours, so I will have to sift through my thousands of photos on our laptop to find ones that fit this post.

So, I will turn 29 in October, so I decided to do my 29 in 29, since I don't have enough of 28 left to get the job done. So here goes!

1.) Take our daughter to the zoo. Probably Oregon Zoo, or the one in Seattle.

2.) Run in a 5k.

3.) Hit 250 followers on the blog.

4.) Expand "The Rogue Baby" shop beyond Etsy.

5.) Payoff debt. 3 year plan to be debt free baby! Gonna stick to it!

6.) Finish our remodel on our house. Cannot wait for the master bedroom redo.

7.) Go to an IMAX movie.

8.) Go to an Oregon Ducks game.

9.) Reach my goal weight!

10.) Learn to make eggs benedict.

11.) Go kayaking more often.

12.) Re-learn to sew! So many pinterest projects await my regaining this ability.

13.) Focus on family time. My daughter will only be this young once.

14.) Read my bible daily.

15.) Put together an emergency preparedness kit. Seriously, been meaning to do that forever and keep procrastinating.

16.) Organize my filing cabinet, ha ha, yeah, this is the least likely to happen of all.

17.) Get my crafting / shop space more functional. Crafting room makeover / overhaul.

18.) Celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary somewhere special (Sept. 2013)

19.) Buy more shoes! A girl can never have too many.

20.) Try brussel sprouts. Weird, right? I've just never tried them. Hear they are awful, but how I can possibly turn 30 not knowing the taste of brussel sprouts!?!?

21.) Read a book from cover to cover. No biggie you say? Well, it is. Since my daughter was born, I have yet to accomplish this.. says the girl who once read all 4 Twilight books in a row in under 72 hours....

22.) Take our daughter to see airplanes. She loves "Pair-Planes". I would love to take her to an aviation museum!

23.) Grow a garden. Zucchini, tomatoes, strawberries, etc. Next summer!

24.) Finally get the windows tinted on my car. Owned it for 3 1/2 years, and each summer I say I will, and I never do.

25.) Take our daughter to see snow this winter. It's something I took for granted growing up in the Northwest, but here, we don't see much of it. Will be a blast to take her to the snow to play.

26.) Spend my first night ever away from our daughter. I know, I know, it's gotta happen someday. Cut the cord Mama!!! I think it will be tougher on her than me at this point.

27.) Do something drastic with my hair. Warning: this may occur sooner... I am getting very anxious for some change.

28.) Have movie marathon weekends! Star Wars, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, etc. How fun would that be?

29.) Go camping more often!


  1. I stumbled upon your blog from Erin's link-up... & I just need to tell you that your #28 makes me want to be your best friend. <3

    1. I think the best part of blogging is finding friends you wouldn't have found in a million years otherwise, and realizing maybe you aren't as dorky as you think you are! ;)

  2. Love your list! I live next to the Evergreen Aviation could make a weekend of the ZOO and "Pair-Planes" :)

  3. Way to go for fellow October babies! Came here through Erin's link-up and am loving it. Great list!


  4. I love your number 10! I completely forgot to put it on my list from the link-up, but it's something I've said I wanted to do for awhile. Also tiramisu... I want to try making that, too!

    Happy goal accomplishing!
