a new time. a new look.

I'm starting over with this whole blog. I very seldom wrote for my old one because I never had anything important or worthwhile to say. Not that I do now but I enjoy it none the less. I have been home now for going on 5 days and I'm about to go crazy! I started searching a couple different things and came across a couple fun sites. One was suggestions of 50 things to do during your lifetime. I don't want this to be a "50 things to do before I die" list I just want it to be a list of things I want to do in general. Some may be done in a week and some may take years but I want to accomplish them all!

1. Pass on a nugget of information - like how to ride a bike, tie your shoes, or crochet a potholder
2. Scuba dive
3. Become a wife and Mommy
4. Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live in NYC
5. Grow closer and closer to my Lord and Savior
6. Be more spontaneous - I love this song...
7. Take photos for the beauty that I see in things not because I want to take a pretty picture
8. Tell those that I love, "I love you" not out of habit but because I do
9. Lay in the grass and find shapes in the clouds

21. Sleep under the stars
22. Know my neighbors, and take them baked goodies too
23. Learn something new
24. Go to a big sporting event like the SuperBowl, World Series, or even the Olympics
25. See a whale like "Free Willy"
26. Keep a clean house

35. Introduce two people that fall in love
36. Be a better listener
37. Keep up with friends and family better.
38. Go for a picnic in a secluded place. - I have an awesome picnic set from my wonderful brother and sister in law.
39. Keep up with a garden for the whole Spring and Summer
40. Visit more places. That includes a cruise!
41. Buy a home, not just a house but a home
42. Grow something and cook with it. i.e. tomatoes, peppers, pumpkin.. oh I dont know.

46. Plan an elaborate practical joke
47. Keep fresh flowers in my house
48. Be cautious with my words but say how I feel
49. Visit Bethlehem
50. Be Happy.

I'm hoping to keep adding to this, probably will subtract a thing or two as well.

I enjoy making lists, some more than others. I make lists of things to do and things to pack. Lists to help with reasoning. Prayer lists. And I even keep a list of things that are necessary for that certain guy to be. :) Yep, I like lists, they keep me straightened out.

Here's to keeping up with this!! :) I'm SO looking forward to getting out of the house tomorrow! I'll have to report back on the Revolve Tour this weekend! 
 Have a wonderful weekend!
