31 for 31

Well here we are.
Another year older.
Another year wiser.
I'm officially IN my 30s.
No longer the new kid on the block.
And my husband?  He's still in his 20's.
At least for 2 more months.
If that doesn't make a girl feel old I don't know what does!
In honor of 31 years I've come up with 31 things I'd like to do in the next 365 days.


1.  Re-read my favorite book ~ The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
2.  Get a massage
3. Put up a chair rail in the dining room
4.  Finally throw some color up on these boring beige walls!  I'm thinking RED!
5.  Take a bubble bath {or two}6. Run a 5K
7. Hang up a gallery wall
8.  Take the digital picture frame we got as a wedding gift (3 1/2 years ago!!) out of the box
9. Install the new outdoor lights my mom bought
10.  Go to a Drive-In movie
11.  Go on a spontaneous date night
12. Take Jamie to a Royal's game
13.  Go to the new Aquarium
14.  Try a {few} new restaurants
15.  Be a tourist in my own city
16.  Go to a concert
17. Take a family vacation
18. Take an adults only getaway
 19.  Think about trying for baby #2 {maybe}
20. Build a sand castle
21. Drink wine and have a Sex and the City marathon like I did in my single days
22.  Try {at least} one new recipe a month
23.  Get up early with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise
24.  Laugh more
25.  Worry less
26.  Host a girls night
27.  Read {at least} one book a month
28.  Take a carriage ride through the Plaza during the holidays

Yay! Happy Birthday! That is a great list! Oh how I miss the days of number 21... I used to rewatch every single season back-to-back-to-back.

Your baby pictures are so cute. Can't believe how dark your hair was when you were born!

Oh, and I totally hear you about 31. It's like there's no going back now... :(
