25 before 25

So, here's the deal. 
My birthday's coming right around the corner. I'll be the big 25, aka a quarter of a century.
{How is this happening?}
A LOT has changed for us in the past year, mostly for the better. I've already hit what feels like my "quarter life crisis" by quitting my job and starting to find out my passion, so I'm right on schedule!
Still, there are a few things that I'd really like to do before my next birthday.

So, I started this list, creatively dubbed "25 things to accomplish before I turn 25".

There isn't anything too wild and crazy on it, because I do only have a few months to get it done. Still, it makes me happy. Some things I have already done, some are still to-dos, but here's the list in its entirety {in no particular order}:
  1. Go with Tim on one of his business trips
  2. Have one job interview
  3. Write my 250th blog post
  4. Go on a spontaneous road trip
  5. Go to a movie by myself
  6. Buy a car to replace the Cabrio
  7. Sew with chiffon without screwing it up {Weird? Maybe}
  8. Get back to wedding weight
  9. Run a 5k
  10. Bake an apple pie from scratch
  11. Spend a day off at the beach
  12. Take the motorcycle permit test {and pass it}
  13. Tip 100% of my bill at a restaurant.
  14. Launch an online store
  15. Go see a play!
  16. Bake French macarons
  17. Touch my toes!
  18. Cross 5 things off my Pinterest to-do list
  19. Host a party with a signature cocktail!
  20. Read 5 books from my high school “required reading” list
  21. Go rock climbing
  22. Have a picnic at the mission. A REAL picnic with a basket and wine.
  23. Go media-free for a weekend.
  24. Learn how to use our Rebel  
  25. Go on a camping trip
 How'd I do?
Do you have a "Bucket list" of sorts? Do tell!


  1. Run a 5k!! It's an exhilarating feeling for sure & anyone who puts their mind to it can do it.

    Loving the list!! And kudos to you if you pull it all off!

  2. Hi from ICLW. I can't remember 25. I think I was living in TX at the time. LOL

  3. I agree, do the 5k! You will love how it makes you feel! I also love serve a signature cocktail! I always pin those and never do it but would love to!

  4. Hi from ICLW! What a great list, love the 100% tip idea, what a blessing that will be to somebody!
