Turning 25

On the eve of my 24th birthday, I decided to make a list of 25 things that I would like to accomplish before I turn 25 years old, on February 4, 2013. Here's the list, in which I refer to as my "25 by 25" list:

1. Try 25 new recipes (25/25 done)
2. Complete a 5K
3. Try 3 new bike/walking trails (3/3 done)
4. Try tofu for the first time
5. Read 5 books regarding healthy living
6. Post 5 video blog recipes
7. Reach "Onederland"
8. Go on 12 dates with my husband
9. Treat myself with a professional massage
10. Travel out of state 3 times
11. Crochet a blanket
12. Cook something for our mothers, "just because"
13. Host a bonfire with friends
14. Invite my father-in-law over for dinner 5 times
15. Host a picnic with family
16. Search for beach glass at the lake
17. Go canoeing
18. Swing dance in Cleveland
19. Shop at a whole foods market
20. Try a new fruit or vegetable
21. Try a new workout
22. Complete a home project
23. Take our dog on 10 walks and blog about them
24. Try a new restaurant
25. Pay off a credit card ($1,000)
I know this project was a complete success not because of how much of the list I completed but because of what my husband told me a couple weeks ago:

"I had so much fun with you this past year! We did so much because of your 25 by 25 list. And I know this wasn't the reason you did it, but I had a lot of fun!"

My heart is very happy right now! Here are few photos from our super fun, awesome year!

Okay, so bringing Topher in to our lives wasn't a part of my 25 by 25 list, but I had to include this super cute photo. I can't believe he is almost a year old, now!
