33 by 33

I decided to start a list of things I want to do each year. It’s a great excuse to sit down and think about goals and big dreams and try to make them happen. It also keeps life interesting, and if Tim and I ever find ourselves bored, we can always just consult the “list” for something to do! So, here are 33 things I want to do by the time I turn 33.

Now, for any of you wondering, no, I am not so lame that I am blogging from my honeymoon in Mexico. I wrote this post a while back, when I had proper time to think about what I want to get done this year, and scheduled it to post today, on my birthday! And, it appears that I get to cross one thing off the list already. I think it’s gonna be a good year 🙂

  1. Travel Internationally. Ideally to a country I have never been to before
  2. Join a book club
  3. Loose ten pounds
  4. Ingrain a running habit and try to remember that I used to like to run.
  5. Learn how to really use my cameras manual settings
  6. Blog at least once a week
  7. Figure out a career that I like
  8. Take an archery class
  9. Get Tim to Vegas
  10. Make sushi
  11. Stop biting my nails (I think this has been on every to-do list I have ever made)
  12. Find the perfect little black dress
  13. Take a writing class
  14. Start a pointless collection
  15. Go up in a hot air balloon
  16. Research genealogy on my mom’s side
  17. Tackle Cleaning out the file cabinet
  18. Eat healthier
  19. Go on a picnic
  20. Successfully get Oliver to loose weight (as of his last vet appointment, he is officially “Obese”)
  21. Go to Disneyland
  22. Finish all my random scrap-booking projects
  23. Buy a new dresser
  24. Read Gone With the Wind
  25. Watch Gone With the Wind
  26. Go camping
  27. Bake an apple pie
  28. Learn to crochet
  29. Make banana bread
  30. fix up or re-purpose a flea market or goodwill furniture find
  31. Volunteer somewhere
  32. Donate to an organization or cause that I believe in
  33. Make a wedding photo book once we get our wedding photos from our photographer

We’ll see how this goes. I hope I at least get to cross half of them off the list!

Also, this is what the kid version of me thinks of this list:
