Here a list, there a list.

Do y'all remember last week when I confessed I'm a compulsive list maker?
Yeah well, I've got another list to share with ya today :)
**I bolded my favorites!**

24 before 24:

+get engaged

+grow my blog to at least 800+ followers loyal readers

+do a recipe challenge (like Julie & Julia, but nowhere near as extreme!)

+watch 20 "new" old movies

+obtain my goal weight

+take a couples cooking class


+pay off my debt

+buy a house

+go to the Texas state fair

+ride an elephant

+go back to Vegas

+go to Dripping Springs winery

+pay for someone's meal anonymously

+take a girls trip (either a weekend or a week)

+learn to sew

+read 24 books

+complete 100 things I've pinned

+open my Etsy shop

+own either a Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs and/or Michael Kors purse

+buy & use a hammock

+visit my grandma's grave in Ohio

+eat raw for 3 days straight

+attend another UFC event

I've already started working on my 30 before 30 list, but it's a work in progress. Those are my goals that I'm giving myself a long time to complete, these ones are more short term!

Do you have a list like this? I'd love some more ideas!!

Before I forget, are any of y'all watching the bachelorette this season?
It looks like in the previews for next week that Des takes Michael & Ben on the 2 on 1. 
I CAN'T STAND Michael & I LOVE Ben.
We'll see which way it goes...

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Ahh Ive been slacking on my 25 before 25! I hope you get to finish! :)I might steal a bunch of yours :P

  2. Um craziness, I just posted my 30 before 30 goal list today. We must be blog twins! Plus we have so many similar ones! Good luck with your list!

  3. I'm totally copying this idea from you one day, just so you know.

    You want to go skydiving?! You're so brave! Andrew bought me a skydiving adventure for my birthday last year and I couldn't do it. He had to get me a new gift. Poor guy.

    If you ever want to anonymously pay for my meal, I'm down with that. ;)

  4. What a great list!! I love your goals! If you haven't tried zip lining you should do that too. I did it in Alaska and it was the most amazing experience.

  5. If you get to ride an elephant I will be jealous for life! And what kind of Etsy shop? Opening mine was probably the smartest idea I've had. I would recommend it:)

  6. Great list! At Starbucks, people pay for the person behind them all the time. Sometimes it starts a chain :) As for the Bachelor, I didn't watch last night's episode but, Ben?! Really?! I don't really like Michael at all, but I feel like he has better intentions than Ben. Although Ben is very attractive and won me over on the first night, I hate how he talks about Des like she's an object or a prize. Just my opinion! :)

  7. I LOVE BEN! He's such a cutie and I think it's great that he's always making time for Des. Michael on the other hand=no bueno!

  8. I love lists! I want to travel to Italy and learn to speak Italian. I totally loved Ben on the first episode but he seems to be turning into the villain. :(

  9. Love this list! Some of the things that are on yours are on mine as well. Pay off my debt and buy a house are definitely two of the top things on my list. I would love to have my own place!

  10. So, I will TOTALLY meet you at the winery in Dripping Springs...just sayin! It's less than an hour drive away, and visiting a winery is also on my 30-before-30 list (that hasn't been posted but is definitely a work in progress...)!!!!! Seriously.

    And I'm going to have to agree with Emily...Ben is always referencing Des as if she's a prize to be won and not a person. I loved him the first night, but I guess I've been put off by ALL of the guys hating him. It reminded me of Tierra from the last season of The Bachelor, so I've been hesitant towards him now.

    Anyway, GREAT LIST! :)

  11. So it is bad that I got so distracted by the "get engaged" that I barely read the rest of the post?! Haha! First thought was "holy crap she's engaged!" then I realized the bold ones are your favs... and then I realized Darren needs to make this a non-bold one and propose already!! :) He will really love me after this comment, ha!

  12. better hold off on buying that house if you want one of those purses. they are spendy ;)

  13. I love your list :) I used to hate lists, but after becoming a mom I can't function without a list!

  14. I love lists. They are a wonderful tool. Not that I ever make and finish them but I try ;). And now, you're one step closer to you're 800 loyal readers!

  15. Looks like a great list! I'm a compulsive list maker, too, and I've been thinking about making a "23 before 23" kind of deal. Maybe I will!
