I'M BACK.... My last post was a 30 for 30 update, so I included that today to HOPEFULLY inspire some more posts!!! I miss blogging. 2012 was a CRAPPY year, but I feel so revived and refreshed knowing that I get a brand new start with 2013! Happy New Year and may you all feel as REFRESHED as I do! In honor of my 30th Birthday, here are 23 things I hope to accomplish before I am 40 years old.

1. Run a mile without stopping. The only reason I am following through with the Couch to 5K program is so that I can cross this off my list.

2. Travel to Hawaii-preferably on my 14 night cruise, but really, anyway I can get there, I will go!

3. Survive having teenagers-eeeek!

4. Find better health coverage.

5. Take the kids to Disney World and on a Disney Cruise.

6. Get some bedroom furniture.

7. Buy a house in my desired neighborhood. Maybe if I make a list for when I turn forty I will be more specific and state "Buy dream house in desired neighborhood!" :-) Kind of excited that I knocked out the most expensive thing on my list!

8. Go skiing.

9. STOP biting my nails.

10. Eat at Elements while Beau MacMillan is the head chef there! I just adore him.

11. Meet The Pioneer Woman or Paula Dean! I will take either lover of butter.

12. Visit Georgia, I think secretly, I was meant to live there. I have this vision of how AMAZING it will be. Might also help me accomplish #11.

13. Own a BIG BIG BIG screen television!

14. I am cheating here because I feel it will happen soon, but go on an adults only vacation with Karissa and Josh-LOVE THEM! Um, what happened here Karissa Miller????

15. Travel outside Arizona with Andrea, Tamara and Shannon-I seriously have never met people I enjoy traveling with so much!

16. Learn to manage my addictive personality.

17. Enroll Tyler in dance and watch her do her thing-SERIOUSLY the girl is INCREDIBLE-self taught!

18. Get organized!

19. Get a suburban.

20. Watch Pat in the courtroom.

21. Kick my dependency on Tylenol PM

22. Somehow get on the Board at Phoenix Children's Hospital-seriously the only place I feel passionately enough about to work for!

23. Gain better control of my jealousy. I would say I have improved since 20, but I have a ways to go. I am way too jealous in many aspects of my life :-(
YES, I have seriously accomplished this. Not perfectly, but I know how truly blessed we are. The grass isn't always greener on the other side!
