31 Things- My Birthday List

Today is my thirty first birthday.
For the last few years I have made a list of things I want to accomplish before my next birthday.
This year there are 31 things I want to accomplish before I turn 32.
Some things will be repeated because I didn't accomplish everything from last years list.

Here we go.

1) Read 24 books
2) Try 12 new recipes
That's one a month. Should be doable.
3) Move to all digital scrapbooking
4) Get new glasses or try out contacts lenses
My eye sight is not what it use to be and I really want to remedy it.
5) Try 12 new eating establishments
6) Get to my pre-pregnancy weight
Brody is two and a half and I still have a little ways to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. This year I am determined to get there!
7) Stop biting my nails
I quit this bad habit years ago and just recently picked it up again. I hate it.
8) Have my family picture taken
I have been saying this for years and now that Brody is 2 I really should do it.
9) Update my "in case I die" files
I haven't updated these files since Brody was born.
10) Read the old testament
11) Record my childhood memories
12) Go on a family picnic
13) Learn how to decorate cookies with royal frosting
14) Have a Star Wars marathon
I may have to stretch this out over a weekend
15) Organize my pictures chronologically
16) Make a list of my favorite 25 books
17) Teach Brody to ride a bike
18) Take a cake decorating class
19) Don't eat out for one month
20) Complete my Christmas shopping by December 1st
21) Take a class on flower arranging
I know the perfect teacher for this.
22) Play with my Gocco Printer more
23) Go through my clothes and donate what I don't wear anymore
24) Go on the Mrs. cavanaugh's factory tour
25) Sew a skirt
26) Take Brody to Discover Gateway
27) Go one month with out sugar and treats
This may be the hardest thing on my list.
28) Potty train Brody
I am REALLY dreading this.
29) Throw a party
I want to throw a party just for fun so it can't be for a birthday or holiday.
30) Visit an art museum
31) Go sledding


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Looks like a fun list. Mayhaps I should have done that too.

    Have a great day!

  2. Happy Birthday to you!
    I think I could help with a few things on that list (a good list by the way). Let's really do the royal icing soon. How about the week after the big event I'm in charge of? I'm dieing to finally do it too. I also need to make a skirt soon.

  3. Happy Birthday! I also have a list like this that says, "Go without sweets for 3 months." I'm scared for the day when I attempt that. I may only be able to make it a week... Or a day... Haha.

  4. I loved reading your list! Happy Birthday!! There is a Mrs cavanaugh tour? I am gonna have to do that one!

  5. Happy Birthday! Let me know when you sign up for the cake decorating class. I'll go with you!!

  6. Great List & Happy Belated Birthday!!
