Happy Birthday to me!


Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear me, Happy Birthday to ME!


Today is my 32nd birthday. Though according to some nice former students I have, I don’t look a day over 28 – bless them for that, if I still taught them I would give them all As.

Anyways, last year I started a “TO DO list” for myself, a bucket list of sorts for the year, 31 things that I wanted to do before I hit 32.    In my opinion I did pretty well on my list.  I was able to complete 16 of my bucket list items – I know percentage why that isn’t awesome, but I was still really pleased.

I’m not going to make excuses as to why I didn’t accomplish all of my list or things like that, but I must admit it was really quite fun to work through it.  Sometimes the list gave us a starting point for some of our adventures, other times it was overwhelming.

Because I enjoyed the list so much, I decided to make another list, my 32 things to do before I hit 33.  So here we go.

  1. Lose the “baby weight” (whatever that amount may be)
  2. Bake fancy bread.
  3. Learn to stop in my hockey skates
  4. Go to Kalispell
  5. Finish Nate’s Birthday Quilt
  6. Switch out the photos in the living room frames
  7. Have a picnic at Barrier Lake
  8. Take more photos of life
  9. Get printed our yearly photo books
  10. Finish Baby Girl’s crib and floor quilt
  11. Watch Les Miserable

  20. Begin and maintain the “One Line a Day Book”
  21. Finish a year devotional book

  25. Make a cute little girl dress for our baby
  26. Have a pedicure date with Nate – yes Nate (his toes need it, this is really for his own good)
