LIFE: 22 Things Before 23

I came across this idea from a fellow blogger named Courtney. You can check out her blog here. (:

Basically, you make a list of things you want to accomplish, or things you'd like to do, before your next birthday. My birthday just passed (May 7th) so I'm posting this a bit later than I intended to, but now is just as good as ever to concoct a "mini bucket list." So, here goes.

1. Go to Disney World. (Is this cheating? We're going on May 30th.)
2. Go to Cedar Point.
3. Re-Enroll in college.
4. Surprise Matt with a weekend getaway, even if it's close to home.
5. Find a good job that I'm happy doing.
6. Start house hunting.
7. Get Zoe fully settled in.
8. Truly surprise my sister, Lindsay, with a really cool gift. (She is a tough person to buy for and an even tougher person to surprise.)
9. Learn to shoot a gun.
10. Make a new recipe a day for one month.
11. Get a tattoo.
12. Get my nose repierced.
13. Visit Jessica in Portland.
14. Watch all of the Twilight movies in a row. (Don't judge me.)
15. Read 10 new books.
16. Go swimming at night time.
17. Learn how to fold a fitted sheet.
18. Go camping with Matt and Lindsay. Zoe can come, too. (:
19. Blindly pick a spot on the map and go there.
20. Go to a Notre Dame football game.
21. Go on a picnic with my husband. <3
22. Write something meaningful in wet cement.

I know that this is a totally random post but I thought the concept was really fun. There are so many more things I wanted to put on my list...perhaps I'll start an actual bucket list? 

If you guys do the birthday tag, link your blog below. I'd love to check them out!



  1. I did this post for my birthday last month. I like your list- you're gonna have a busy year! also grrrr folding fitted sheets!

    1. LMAO--I definitely will have a busy year. (: My MIL has tried to show me how to fold fitted sheets a million times but I just can't do it! Maybe I'm too impatient or something. One of life's mysteries. I'm going to go check out your list right meowww.

  2. That list was too damn cute. You can "surprise" me with a gift anytime ;)
