twenty five before twenty five...




I like goals, and I really, really like lists. So I figured it was time to really give myself a push and make a list of 25 things to accomplish before I turn 25. I am already a few months behind, so I have to get these done in the next 10 months.

So here we go. This should be fun :)

1. Run another half marathon. (not ready to commit to another full marathon haha)
2. Get in the best physical shape of my life (or post high school best body anyway, HA!)
3. Learn to play guitar, okay learn to play a song on the guitar. (I only have the best teacher there is)
4. Go on a killer Lake Powell trip! (Trevor & I have wanted to do this since we first met)
5. Go on a spontaneous date weekend with Trevor.
6. Hike through Zion's National Park. (ruined by government shut down, did next best thing!)
7. Have a girl's weekend with my best girlfriends from high school.
8. Read the Book of Mormon all the way through.
9. Visit my Grandparent's in Nanaimo.
10. Explore San Francisco. (I went when I was a little girl but don't really remember it)
11. Learn more about photography, and how to really use my camera.
12. Make eating healthy into a lifestyle.
13. Organize (finally) and get rid of most of my closet.
14. Really make an effort to start saving money. (Even though it might not be a lot right now.)
15. Finally put together our wedding album, and an album from Trevor's mission.
16. Start the site you have been thinking about for years now.
17. Create a Mission Statement for my life that outlines my priorities and goals.
18. Learn how to professionally ice sugar cookies (random, I know)
19. Develop the habit of praying every morning and night.
20. Do something drastic with my hair. (I have never done this and have always wanted to)
21. Take the time to cook more, make a new recipe every month!
22. Read 5 new books. (Don't laugh, I know some people read that many in a month! I have made the bad habit of just reading blogs, and watching dumb reality t.v.)
23. Make more of an effort to cultivate old and new friendships.
24. Attend the Temple more.
25. Plan an amazing Law School Graduation/Celebration Trip.

  7. great list! i think you should add some colored clip-in extensions (like pink) to your hair! :) because then you can take it out when you are sick of it, and didn't do anything to mess up your hair. i speak from experience, trying to get back to normal after doing something drastic is not fun!

  10. Way to go! I love that your mixed in spiritual goals with temporal and physical ones. My husband and I just sat down and did this last week to make sure we are on track with all areas of our life. I am with you on the camera one. I have a nice camera that I don't know how to use...at all. ha

  13. Great list! I think you'd look awesome as a brunette because of your light skin & bright blue eyes. =) That would definitely be something drastic!

    I keep telling myself that I want to get in the best shape ever this next year because I have a feeling an engagement & wedding are just around the corner & I want to look awesome for that. It's so much easier said than done, I am the queen of excuses!

  14. This is a great To-Do List! Much more fun than 'get groceries, pay the bills, do my laundry'. I especially love the professionally-iced-sugar-cookies goal. Can't wait to see more of that. ;)

  15. I agree with doing something drastic to your hair!! I just did :-) and chopped it. I love it.

  27. this is a wonderful list!
    I'm already 25, but I should make a list as well :) . #19 (praying morning & night) and reading the Bible regularly are definitely something that I need to implement.

    1. Well let's just be honest, for most of us if we looked like we did in high school it would be considered unhealthy at our age! haha :) At least I would be!

  33. Not liking the lipstick color on you. I love the Book of Mormon! I've read it through dozens of times, but the first time I had to push myself past the first couple pages. I used to read (novel) books all the time until I got married back in 2000. I would like to get back to it.

  40. Hello to the viewers on this site i have found a real spell caster (Dr Brave).

    My name is Kelsey Jordan from Canada and I have been married to my husband for 24 years and live with him for 4 years before our marriage which made it all total of 28 years together. we have a wonderful daughter who we both love dearly, my husband went to work in New York because he could not find work in our home state. while I was the only one working and taking care of our child back here in NC and was preparing to move down to NY so she could school at Stony Brook University and we all would be together again, then I found out that he is cheating on me, when I confront him he lied and lied over and over again, and he keep on telling me that I need help that some thing is wrong with me and he is there to work and to keep us happy and making preparation for us to move, and I only accusing him, until one day when my husband's sister called and told me everything I was saying for 18 months and that my husband is having an affair with her cousin and it's hurt her to see all this because I was the one suffering from all this, but he keep on denied all of it. till when i saw a testimony online were Dr.Brave stop someone husband from cheating on his wife and I also contacted him for help because I had no other choice, after I wrote him i was told what was wrong with my husband that make him cheat on me all the time and that he have been doing this for a very long time even before he left NC for NY, funny enough Dr.Brave told me that it will not take more than three days, that after the spell have been casted that my husband will change totally and show me love like never before and that he has the money to make preparation for us to come over to NY to join him, but he have refused because of his cheating habits, and to my surprise it all happened exactly the same way he had said it would three days after the spell was casted. My husband called me asking for forgiveness and told me that all my suspicion was correct and that he was sorry for everything he had done in the past and that he would start with the preparation for us to come down to NY to meet him with our daughter asap, now i having a wonderful marriage today because of Dr.Brave, I and my husband are now living happily together with our daughter in Ny and he have change totally, he now show me love, buy gifts when coming back from work and take care of me and the daughter like never before. i will always share this testimony to the whole world, so that anybody out there with the same problem can be saved, if you need any help in your marriage life you can contact Dr.Brave on his private mail.. bravespellcaster@gmail.com, he will help you out, there's nothing too big for him.

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.
