25 in 25

Today I am officially a quarter of a century old.  I have to say I am excited to grow older and wiser.  I’m not afraid of age, even if I do use anti-aging cream every morning and night.

I’ve been seeing the 25 in 25, 30 before 30, etc, posts floating around blog world. To be honest, they look like a fun time.  Now only if I can actually do them….

Welp!  Here we go!

  1. Become someone who enjoys running
  2. Go to a blogging conference
  3. Learn how to properly use my DSLR
  4. Take amazing photographs with DSLR (Canon Rebel T3i)
  5. Create 5 DIY/Food/Whatever pins from Pinterest a month
  6. Read more books
  7. Make more child geared posts
  8. Go back to Olympia, WA and visit home for a couple weeks
  9. Exercise 5 days a week
  10. Become a budgeting rockstar
  11. Read the bible consistently 
  12. Go on a date with my hubby.  I think we haven’t been on one since Valentine’s Day 2010….
  13. Meet a blog friend in real life
  14. Start making Youtube videos 
  15. Call my friends more often instead of texting (should be easier now that I will be a stay at home mama next week)
  16. Go camping
  17. Take my family on a fishing trip..even for a day
  18. Start Damian’s scrapbook
  19. Eat a week of meat-free meals
  20. Be at my “I just turned 21″ weight again
  21. Take my son to the library at least twice a month
  22. Religiously keep track of every dollar spent
  23. Wear my glasses more, and contacts less
  24. Go on a cruise (I used to go every year until Damian was born)
  25. Take my son to the Polar Express at Edaville
What would be on your list?
