25 Before I turn 25

I wrote for my "New Years" post about not having any resolutions/goals for the new year because I had my own list of goals to accomplish before my birthday and never returned to that topic. Last June I wrote a list of goals for myself to get done before my birthday. I called it my "24 goals before I turned 24" List. Here are some of the goals that I accomplished from June - February:

* Go to the Dentist :)
* Seal the Grout
* Clean out the Garage and park two cars in the garage
* Finish the retaining wall in our basement
* Finish our Honeymoon Scrapbook
* Get window covering for all the windows without (I lived almost 3 years in the house without blinds on some windows! It was about time!)
* Give the Master Bedroom a mini-makeover
* Read the New Testament
* Read 15 books (amazing because I barely read a whole book since graduating)
* Try 24 new recipes (Todd liked this one!)

And of course there were others...

So this birthday I sat down and made a new list. I am hoping that I can accomplish it all before my birthday next year. My birthday is Valentine's Day - so my deadline to finish this list is Feb. 14, 2012.

25 Goals Before I Turn 25
  1.          Read the whole Bible
  2.          Start a vegetable garden and plant flowers in my garden
  3.          Learn to Crochet/Knit
  4.          Sew a Quilt
