28 goals for my 28 years

Happy Birthday to me!!

This is kind of cheesy, but as my sister knows, I like lists. So, here are 28 goals for my 28th year.

We’ll see how many I actually do. 🙂


  1. Read 28 new books
  2. Go to Disney World! (I haven’t been there since I was 8)
  3. Make a lasagna (I don’t know, for some reason I have never made one.)
  4. Volunteer
  5. Run a 5K
  6. Visit my sister in Los Angeles
  7. Watch two close friends, Stephanie and Kim, make it down the aisle at their respective weddings
  8. Reunite with awesome grad school pal Andrea. We haven’t seen each other in more than three years because she was off in the Peace Corps!
  9. Jot down things I’m thankful for once per week
