Several blogs I follow were doing these lists back in Fall.  "35 Things to Do Before 35" (or whatever your upcoming big b-day is) I've had things mulling around in my head for awhile. I decided this would be my version of a New Year's Resolution.  I must say at first it was difficult for me to come up with 35 things.  I didn't think it would be hard AT ALL because I love making lists and I always have things I want to do. My problem was I don't know physically where we'll be in these next 2 1/2 years.  If we move to a new house or new state  my list could explode with things to do/go/explore/try!!  Some of my items could be affected by location or $.  I finally got over the fact that I don't know the future and the list can change. It's just a list for goodness sakes and I'm in charge of the list so I can alter it whenever! By the time I got to the end I didn't want to stop at 35!! Here it is!

28   Lose 15 pounds
29   Sit on a beach
30   Be in church ministry with Jason again (all in God's timing! Oh I can't wait to see what this looks like this next time around!)

Come and visit us in Cali... Free place to stay for your family of 6! We live 10 minutes from the beach and have lots of amusement parks within 1 hour. That would help cross a few off of the list : ) Oh, and we have 2 great tubs. Ha ha wouldn't that be relaxing. J and your 4 kiddos, Matt and I with our kiddos all hanging out downstairs so Nic can have a bubble bath. Okay, we will leave that one for another place and time.

Invitation stands, if for any reason you can come out to Cali we would love to host you guys!
