28 Before 28

Yesterday I reviewed the goals I wrote for my 27th year. No, it did not go well. In fact I was a little embarrassed by them, but I still posted them because I feel like it made me a better person. That's not true. The real reason I posted them was because I had nothing else to write about. Since I am doing my best to come up with blog material so that my cousins will stop bugging me on Facebook to keep updating my blog, I thought it would be best to do another list for this year.

I told Momma that my goal this year was to go from being a "hot mess" to "hotness." It's only one letter difference, so it can't be that hard. Hopefully these 28 things will help me get there.

  1. Sew a dress or skirt
  2. Watch the movie "What About Bob" - seriously, I'm going to watch it this year
  3. Get married - I'm claiming it. :)
  4. Finish decorating my back patio
  5. Get in the habit of sending cards to friends
  6. Start using reusable bags 100% of the time at the grocery store
  7. Hit my weight loss goal
  8. Go on vacation some place new
  9. See a shooting star
  10. Build a snowman - yes I put it on again this year. :)
  11. Get a new camera
  12. Go a month without sugar - yep, this one's back again this year, too.
  13. Get into a regular work out routine
  14. Read Pride and Prejudice again
  15. Learn how to drive a stick shift - need to find someone who owns a stick shift
  16. Bake bread from scratch
  17. Figure out how to solve a Rubix Cube
  18. Photograph my whole family
  19. Bake something new
  20. Deep clean my house
  21. Makeover my blog
  22. Make a photo book of my college years - I will get this done some day!
  23. Ride a roller coaster
  24. No fast food for a month
  25. Do a puzzle
  26. Do not complain about anything for a week
  27. Make 4 new friends
  28. Have a girls weekend
Wish me luck, Internet. Heaven knows I'll need it.


  1. I would love to do several of those with you - like a goal accountability partner! What do you think? I especially like the idea of a girl's weekend (we could even do a little scrapbooking/photo book making!) :) Love you and happy birthday!

  2. I made a 26 before 27 list but am still short a few things. Who knew it would be so hard to come up with 26 things! I think I might have to steal number 26. This would be a really good exercise in patience for me! Also, I'm reading Pride and Prejudice right now for the first time and loving it!
