The Last Year of My 20's.....

So tomorrow I turn 29. Awhile back I posted a 29 in 29 post.

Since then I'm pretty sure I've knocked a few things off the list thought maybe I'd make some changes....

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

2.) Run in a 5k. Maybe even a half marathon.. we'll see.

3.) Hit 250 followers on the blog. Well, here we are at 226 already, so I'm bumping this goal. By this time next year, my goal is 500! Dream big!

4.) Expand "The Rogue Baby" shop beyond Etsy. Almost there! is nearly up and running.

5.) Payoff debt. 3 year plan to be debt free baby! Gonna stick to it! Yeah, the new $3000 TV probably didn't help with this huh? Still a goal, and a good one, it's gonna stay!

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! This one is a toughie and a constant struggle. I hope to be 125 lbs by my 30th birthday. I know it's going to take a lot of work, but I feel like it's something I absolutely must do for myself.

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!

Really, I think these are all pretty good... and all worth reaching. I hope to post progress every other month or so. =) I am going to embrace my final year of being in my 20's and enter my 30's feeling happy, accomplished, and not even remotely "old."

Here's to 366 more days of being a twenty-something.


  1. Ooooh, I miss my twenties! ;)
    Great list!
    Happy birthday!

  2. Happy Belated Birthday!

    This is a great list! I'm sure you'll be able to accomplish everything by this time next year. Just don't get discouraged and keep at it!

    This list reminds me of my 100 in 1001 list. I need to get one that :/

  3. Lovely blog :) I will definitely be following!
