A birthday list...

Today is my birthday, my last year as a twenty-something.   I wish I could say I am accepting this whole aging thing with grace and dignity but I'd be lying. 

Inspired by some other blogger's birthday lists, I have created a list of 30 things I would like to accomplish before I turn 30.  I will keep you all updated on my status.  There's nothing like accountability to get you motivated.
 1. Learn German.
2. Throw an amazing holiday party.
3. Take a one year anniversary trip.
4. Do more craft projects.
5. Read more books.
6. Take yoga classes.
7. Grow a successful garden.
8. Reupholster our new couch.
9. Throw an elegant dinner party.
10. Take a challenging hike.
11. Landscape the house.
12. Make our house into a home that is a true reflection of us.
13. Try something new.
14. Throw a football brunch.
