Happy half Birthday to ME!

Today is my half birthday and to celebrate, I’ve decided to make a list. If you know me at all, you know I’m a big list maker. It’s how I keep my sanity. So yes, making a list is a form of celebration for me. And yes, I do have to admit that sometimes I put things on the list just for the satisfaction of having something to cross off (you know you do it too!).

My friend Amy made a list of 28 things she wanted to do during her 28th year here on Earth. I really enjoyed the idea and have also enjoyed watching people who are blogging about their 101 in 1001 days. In the spirit of these to-do lists, I decided to make one myself. I’m only putting half of my age worth of things on here since I only have a half a year until my next birthday.

(Yes I realize this is a cheesey logo, but cut me some slack, I threw it together in about 25 seconds)

Some of these things seem mundane, but they are things that I’ve been wanting to do and haven’t gotten around to. I’ll post updates as I finish things on the list. Wish me luck in my endeavors! And if you’ve got a list of you own, let me know. I’d love to see what’s on your list!

    I so love lists… to the point where it’s an addiction. Something about the satisfaction of completing things on it and crossing it out. :) Great list and happy half birthday!! :)
