31 things during my year of being 31

Tomorrow is my birthday, my 31st birthday.  I don't usually get too worried about years, but it's odd to be 31.   Sometimes I still feel like a little girl just trying to figure out life.  Maybe I'll never  REALLY figure it all out and that's okay. ;)

I didn't do this list at 30 (at least I don't remember it), but I think this year I need some goals.  I will come back to my list through out the year and update it.

1.  Go on a trip with the hubby. accomplished April 25-May 3.
2.  Take the boys to a state we have never taken them.
3.  Go visit family in Denison, Iowa.  Done in June
4.  Go visit family in Wisconsin.  Done in July

  1. Sounds like a great list! I know that I always intend to read more books than I actually do, so I would love to set a realistic goal like one every two months. Thanks for linking up!
