Golden.

Since I'm turning 29 on the 29th, it's my Golden Birthday today. That's what Brent told me. I'm looking forward to spending the day with our family and enjoying red velvet cake, compliments of my mom and her sous chefs, Hadleigh and Nathanael! This morning they made me scones for breakfast, which is one of my favorites!

It's hard to believe that next year I'll be thirty. I don't mind getting older...but I can't believe how quickly my twenties have gone by. So here are 29 things that I want to do/accomplish during this year that I am twenty-nine. (in no particular order)
  1. make at least one new recipe a week

  2. make a dent in my "to read" list

  3. spend more time each day reading the Bible and in prayer

  4. work on teaching Hadleigh to read

  5. take a mini-vacation with Brent--just the two of us

  6. complete Nathanael and Madeleine's first year scrapbooks

  7. establish a consistent morning devotion time with our children

  8. exercise more to be healthy

  9. journal more consistently

  10. plan a monthly "family day" to do something new and fun together

  11. play golf with Brent (or at least ride on the cart!)

  12. find a Bible Study to become involved with (I miss BSF)

  13. plan meals a month at a time

  14. write real letters to people I care about

  15. vote in November

  16. lose my "baby weight"

  17. be adventurous and try a new hairstyle (I am such a scaredy-cat when it comes to cutting my hair!)

  18. reconnect with old friends and be better at staying in touch

  19. plant bulbs for a pretty spring!

  20. work on organizing our office space

  21. pull out my sewing machine and work on perfecting the skill of sewing

  22. talk with my brothers more often

  23. find a great babysitter and have date nights with Brent more often

  24. hang pictures on the walls (does it take everyone at least a year to feel settled in a new home?)

  25. learn how to use Photoshop Elements (I've had it for almost 2 years)

  26. take a Photography course (I really want to take this one!)

  27. travel somewhere unexpected

  28. read and write poetry...I miss that from my college days

  29. discover all the neat places to go and things to do in Oklahoma

Hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend!
