Goals are dreams with deadlines. -Diana Scharf Hunt

It's time for a 27 things update! Some of you may remember my list of 27 things I want to accomplish before turning 27 (on October 17th), but if you don't just click the link and you can read the list.

As I was reading over the list for this post, I pondered in my heart why on earth I told the entire internet that I would run a 5k, knit a scarf, or give up sweets. Why didn't I commit to walking Kody around the block once or twice, buying more yarn for my ever growing collection, or giving up broccoli? Those are things I could do. None the less, the list has been made, and I am sticking to it.

Onto the things I have accomplished.

#9 - Finish decorating my mud room - DONE
        The final product can be seen here.

#11 - Take 1 photo every day - Eh.
        This was going really well, but then my "good" camera broke. (aka my non-point-and-shoot) It's getting fixed, though.

#15 - Read 50 books - 2 down, 48 to go
        I have read: Matched and The Cupcake Queen (both teen lit). I am not counting books that I'd already started before writing the list, so that rules out 6 other books, and I am certain that I'm forgetting a lot of books because I average 3 books a week.

#18 - Try a new restaurant - DONE
        Since writing the list I have tried a couple of restaurants. The first was West Side Grill in Lee's Summit, and the second was Fire Side Subs in Overland Park. The sub place was AMAZING. Seriously. I may have dreamed about them later. Oh, I also had a sandwich at a coffee shop that was remarkably good. Not really a restaurant, but worth mentioning.

That's all I've accomplished so far. I'm going to start goal #19 tomorrow. Wish me luck.

  1. Where's the sub place in OP? Maybe Mel and I can join you there on one of these snow days?!
