Hip, hip hooray! I made it to day 4! (and I still haven't given up)
Today's topic is.....wait for it....25 Things to Do Before My Next Birthday.
This should be easy, since I just had my birthday. I've got a whole year to fill with stuff! Okay, no digressing, stay focused, Brooke....here goes:
1.) Go zip lining in Glacier National Park.
2.) Publish at least three more books.
3.) Lose that last 28 pounds.
4.) Take new family portraits.
5.) Score a job with a school district...whether it be coaching or as an EA.
6.) Learn a few basic moves in ballroom dance.
7.) Go inner tubing on a lake.
8.) Go inner tubing on the snow.
9.) Try skiing again for the first time in 15 years.
10.) Try out an aerial silks exercise class.
11.) Take a belly dancing class.
12.) Finish reading The Book of Mormon. (Why do I openly practice my faith? Click here.)
13.) Go on a romantic overnight date with my hubby. We've only been away from our kids (together) once in eight years! Yikes!
14.) I want to spend more time with my mother.
15.) I want to spend more time with my brothers and their families.
16.) Tear down the old sunroom hanging off the back of my house like a tumor and put in a patio.
17.) I want to go to ECWC, sell lots of books, laugh a lot with my friend, Jess McCallan, and wow everybody who thought I was pregnant last year. :)
18.) I'd like to ride a horse again.
19.) Learn how to make soap.
20.) Touch someone's life.
21.) Lay my eyes on my daughter again. (Even if I can't speak to her or touch her. I just want to see her again.)
22.) Witness a birth.
23.) Eat rare Ahi Tuna. (I love it, but my family will have none of that, so I *never* get to have it.)
24.) Make homemade pickles.
25.) Do the splits again.
What are a few things YOU'D like to complete before your next birthday?
