28 at 28

So another birthday.

Instead of boring you all with how 28 doesn't seem old and how I don't really feel old, but the idea of being 28 is just so, well, old, I've decided to do a list. A list of 28 things. 28 random things I've learned, I love, I hate, I want, I wish, I know, whatever. Just a list of 28 things.

1. I hate mushrooms. As much as I wish I liked them and as much as I've tried to like them, I just don't.
2. I love cheese.
3. I'm a perfectionist.
4. I'm a procrastinator.
5. I'm indecisive. All 3 make for a very bad combo...
6. I daydream about how to make my house perfect, complete with pushing out walls, replacing baseboards and new furniture.
7. I also daydream about designing and building the perfect home.
8. I love to shop for my kiddos clothes. And as I've gotten smaller, I enjoy my own clothes shopping a little bit more.
9. I know that Heavenly Father loves me. And knows me, better than I know myself.
10. I know that life doesn't always go the way we want it to. Or think it should. Sometimes it's better.
11. I love babies.
12. I really love my own babies.
13. I've come to appreciate my curly hair.
14. I want to become a great sewer.
15. I will finish my nutrition degree. Someday.
16. I want to run again. And do yoga. And pilates.
17. I see alot of my mother in myself. And my dad.
18. I know that times gets faster with each passing year.
19. I am a night owl. Mornings are rough.
20. I am a homebody.
21. I wish I wasn't so shy and timid. Although I'm getting better.
22. I struggle with the idea of makeup. And I struggle with the idea that I really need it now.
23. I still love to watch Friends re-runs. And watch them often.
24. I know that my Savior lives.
25. I know that I am blessed. Blessed beyond reason.
26. I pray daily for happy thoughts. Verses fearful ones.
27. I love to swim.
28. I love my husband more, and differently, than I ever thought I would.

Happy Birthday, and 28 is YOUNG! Wait til you're in your mid-30's....

I think the word is "seamstress" not sewer...because that's, well...a SEWER, ya know? Like the stinky place beneath the streets that all goes to a treatment plant...? Love ya!

Kelsey said...

Ha Ha! I thought "sewer" sounded funny...that's how little I know about sewing...;)

So yes, I want to be a great seamstress.

Happy Birthday!!! Hoping it was a great day..Its funny you always comment how alike we are when I post my blogs and I feel the exact same way. I have to say I agreed with you on most of your stuff..Some kind of impossible..ha ha..as I don't have curly hair. I also thought you said SEWER...as in down under..and not semstress..ha ha..I just had to say ok..I'm sure it has meaning!!
Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday! I loved reading all of your 28 things...they were great and I would have to agree with a lot of them...although sewing...I don't think I want to do...I would rather just go shopping...however I think that is a lot more difficult with 3 than it was with 2!

Melissa King said...

Happy Birthday my friend! We are so alike and I just adore you. You are an incredible person.

(ps. I just started doing Mary Kay, so if you want help with the Makeup thing I can help.)
