A big To-do

Ok, with my birthday looming imminently around the corner (24, hard to believe) I've decided to make a list of 25 things I'd like to do/accomplish before I turn 25. I'll periodically update the list as I complete items, change things, etc. So, in lieu of New Years resolutions, I bring you 25 before 25:

1. Lose 30 pounds. I know, lame and cliche, but for my health I really need to do it.
2. Get my concealed carry permit. (I know, me with a gun is a scary thought...)
3. Set up, and stick to, a monthly budget
4. Stop biting my nails... permanently
5. Save enough money for a down payment on a house
6. Apply for a job in the operating room
7. Start an etsy shop for my baby quilts
8. Spend more time being grateful for what I have, and less time wishing for things I don't
9. Smile more
10. Tell Steve that I love him everyday
11. Organize the spare room closet
12. Have singing time planned at least a week in advance
13. Write to Zach on a regular basis
14. Wash my car once a month
15. Plan weekly menus
16. Read the Book of Mormon
17. No caffeine
18. Read at least one "classic" a month
19. Complete the "block party" quilt
20. Get my engagement ring and wedding band soldered and properly sized
21. Sell my wedding dress
22. Go back to school for my Bachelor's Degree
23. Attend the temple at least once a month
24. Criticize less, compliment more
25. Have my Christmas quilt finish by December

We'll see how I do...

That's a good idea, Annie. I think I may need to start thinking up my own list. . . Luckily I have 2 more days than you do so I should be fine ;)
