  3. Run a 1/2 Marathon
  4. Take a West Coast road trip
  5. Own a mini-van

  20. Read 10 books for fun (1. The Pastor’s Wife by Jennifer Allee/ 2. On the Run, 3. In Plain Sight & 4. Invisible by Lorena McCourtney/ 5. Daughter of Joy by Kathleen Morgan / 6. She Makes It Look Easy by MaryBeth Whalen/ 7. Deliver Me From Evil by Kathi Macias/ 8. Never Buried, 9. Never Preach Past Noon, 10. Never Kissed Goodnight, 11. Never Tease a Siamese, 12.

  21. Shoot a gun (9/25/2012)
  22. Read 1,000 Gifts and record my own
  23. Buy at least 1 Pinterest inspired outfit
  24. Learn how to use camera in manual mode
  25. Make a loaf of bread
  26. Do a Sprint Triathlon
  27. See 4 movies at the theater (1. The Hunger Games 4/4/2012  2. Unconditional 9/21/2012)
  28. Go on a “girls weekend”  (3/30/12 – 4/1/12)
  29. Read 4 books to learn (Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis)
  30. Go 1 week without eating fast food or at a restaurant

The BIG updates is that I crossed off “21. Shoot a gun.” During Bill’s lunch break we met at Shooter’s Depot (Bill had gotten a Groupon deal) for a gun safety lesson and to shoot at the range. I’m not gonna lie, I was really nervous! I have never touched a gun much less hold a loaded one and shoot it. The safety video was informative and the range instructor was really helpful so by the time we got to actually shoot I wasn’t nervous anymore. I thought I did pretty good for my first time! Well, the first shot didn’t even hit the piece of paper and a few shots would have just scared the person but I could definitely seriously hurt someone if I owned a gun and need to use it!

    I would love to be able to concentrate better:
    I could get much more reading done.
    I have about 5 books I have with markers that I’ve
    started and not finished. I should just grab one and
    start all over till it is finished. OH, me!!! I still want to read, “Heaven is for Real”. Will see if I can borrow if I don’t purchase.I admire you young adults making a try at some important things!

      I have always loved to read! I stay up way to late reading just one more chapter…. I have always gotten in trouble for it – even when I was in elementary school :)

    You forgot to mark off your clogging performance!
