25 before 25

I turn 25 in February, so I thought I’d make a list of 25 things I’d like to accomplish before then. Some of them (especially the first 2) will be harder than others, but that’s ok. I’m telling myself I’ll be ok with not checking everything off (after all, our Summer List was a total flop and I never made a Fall List). I’ve been working on this list for a little while, so some of the things are already checked off or labeled as “working on it”.

  1. Finish the guest bathroom
  2. Finish the back patio
  3. Finish dining gallery wall
  4. Hang art in hallway – working on it
  5. Hang art in living room
  6. Work on Closet Office
  7. Build entryway console
  8. Paint the master bedroom ceiling
  9. Update Our House section
  10. Work on blog layout
  11. Consider buying a premium theme
  12. Or self-hosting the blog
  13. Fix text link colors on side bar
  14. Work on Design Boards section
  15. Visit DC with Robert
  16. Cook new recipes more often – working on it
  17. Bake a pie
  18. Make a pizza
  19. Eat more veggies – working on it
  20. Eat more fruit – working on it
  21. Learn to like asparagus
  22. Learn to like brocoli – working on it
  23. Make a Green Smoothie
  24. Try to like eggs (in ways other than “French toasted”)
  25. Work hard & be nice to people.

Other than that the big 2-5 will probably be very low-key. I’m pretending I’ll decorate the backyard like some of the pictures on my Party Ideas board on Pinterest, bake a cake & make invites, but we haven’t thrown a party in years. At least not one with more than 10 people, or cute banners, etc. Plus, can you really decorate the house and do any of that for your own party? Isn’t that kind of narcissistic?
