1 Year UPDATE: Ok this year was similar to last year. I had good intentions of getting everything done but then life gets in the way. It seems that I always start strong but once Christmas shows up things get crazy and just don’t stop! In the spring work kept me really busy and tired. Since school has been out since mid-June I have gotten back to getting things done but I haven’t finished my list. A few of the things I didn’t finish will go on my list again for next year and others will simply be crossed off. See below to see what I did end up accomplishing!
I ended up completing 22 of the items on my list this year which is 66%. I also ended up doing half of 2 of them. So all in all I think I did a pretty good job this year, but I’m hoping I do better next year!
It’s my birthday! Yes, today is the day and for the first time EVER in my life I have to work. Can you believe it? Being a school teacher I’ve never had this problem before, even during the other summers that I’ve worked. But this year I am working and that’s ok. It’s a short day and then my husband and I are going out for dinner.
I actually had my cake last weekend. My parents came down to visit and my dad and I both have birthdays in the same week so I made us a Princess Torte to share. We even let my husband share since his birthday was earlier in the month and he wanted a piece of this incredible cake for his birthday too.
This birthday I’m 33. Surprisingly I’m ok with my age this year. I think it’s going to be a lucky year with my double 3’s. The last two years I’ve made a list of things I wanted to do before my birthday and it really helps me stay on track and reach my goals. I accomplished a lot of my list from last year and am pretty happy with it.

This year I’m making a new list. 33 things to get done while I’m 33. There were only 5 items I didn’t accomplish last year and I’m only putting 3 of them back on the list for this year. So enjoy my list and tell me what YOU hope to accomplish in the next year too!
