26 Things

In honor of my 26th birthday today, I've been inspired by some other blogs to create a list of 26 things to do while I'm 26. Some things will push me out of my comfort zone, others will hopefully serve as motivation to get things done, while others I will just sit back and cherish every moment. I hope to blog about most of these things, so I ask all of you to help keep me accountable.

I'm starting this 26th year by doing what I hope to do more often, taking time for just me. I'm sitting in a local Starbucks, drinking a drink I don't often let myself get (too many calories), after I finish this post, I'm going to take out my new Kindle, a birthday present from my in-laws, and read a few chapters of a great book, before I head off to treat myself to a mani/pedi. Later tonight, I'm heading to dinner with my husband and a couple of friends.

It's a great day!!!


  1. I like this list. I'd like to do many of the same things! It's great to have goals!! :)

  2. I know you're incredibly busy this month/next month with travel - but pick one of these (or two or three) and we'll do a girls weekend and enjoy together!

  3. Jess-you pick the weekend (any weekend but Columbus Day weekend) and I'll figure out what we're going to do!!

    P.S. In case I haven't told you lately, you're the best friend a girl can have. <3
