i don't know about yall, but i'm ready for summer. even though it will come with it's own craziness (aka swimming lessons and potty training and the taking away of the "sassy", and putting the house back on the market) we won't have things going on every single day. i'm a simple girl, really. i enjoy reading and sewing and being outside. i enjoy having a clean home that never is and home cooked meals that include fresh vegetables. winter kills me. winter with kids in school and sports...i didn't know what i was getting myself into.

but enough whining. on a blog i read several months ago (cause i won't lie, i haven't read one in about 2 months now), i saw where a lady made a list of the things she wanted to accomplish by the time she turned 35. i thought that was a supercute idea and i made my own list. so in honor of my birthday that was this past monday (thanks for the facebook wishes btw), my list of things to accomplish by the time i turn 35. i figure if i give myself 3 years, surely i can do it! 35x35

1. attain and maintain a healthy weight
2. become a daily Bible reader/studier
3. grow out my hair enough to donate to locks of love (this is big since i have had it REALLY short for several years now! but it's chin length again, so progress!)
4. run once a week with my husband (shoot, run period.)
5. exercise daily
6. learn to play guitar
7. go on another cruise
8. do something Disney related
9. buy a monogramming machine
10. sell this house and move
11. be debt free
12. organize my garage (that's like saving the world at this point)
13. meet several of my blog friends
14. write a letter to each of my kids
15. take each of my kids on a trip alone
16. make the trip to dothan with all the kids by myself (just to prove i can)
17. take a photography class (or at least lessons from a pro)
18. take first girls trip with monica and joanna
19. get back to posting 3x week on my blog
20. give blood
21. get on the national bone marrow donor's list
22. do something cultural (like go to a museum or play or at least get hillary to invite me to one of those sips and strokes things...although i don't sip. how bout somebody host a dip and know, eat and paint...but that contradicts number 1 doesn't it?)
23. have a monthly girl date (which could include meeting more of my blog gals) and my birmingham lovelies...i'm not too far from you, you know
23. buy a bike to ride with the kids
24. back to weekly meal plans/coupons
25. host something (party/brunch/shower)
26. new family portrait
27. take my mama on an overnight trip
28. freeze fresh veggies this summer
29. midnight showing of eclipse and breaking dawn (cause i'm a nerd)
30. read some of the classics
31. find a really good chicken salad recipe
32. cut down to one DDP a day
33. drink tons of water
34. visit ellen in las vegas
35. try to talk my husband in to letting me go to NYC to see anna b without him (cause he has never been and really wants to go. can't i count it as a scouting trip for the 2 of us??)

hope you liked it. hope you'll hold me to it. and by the way, AC has bumped her vocab up to 3 word sentences. (yuck..dat goss-yuck that's gross-, wook...see da fowers?-look, see the flowers) a lot of things are "look...see the...whatever she's looking at. and she will also give me the stink eye, cross her arms over her chest and huff at me. next up...the eye roll.

So cute! Love your list. I could stand to make a list, although the thought of coming up with 35 things seems daunting. AC is you made over! She is just precious! Happy Easter!

Do not tell me that the picture of the adorable big girl IS MY BABY AC! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!! Also, you must come to NYC!!! My couch is waiting for you! :-)

What a cute picture...she's looking more like a little girl!

And I love your idea. But since I'm a tiny bit past 35, mine would have to be 40x40.

Also Cool
