28 things

Last year after I turned 26, I made a "27 things I want to do before I turn 27" list. I regret to inform you that I did not accomplish everything on that list. Rats. But I decided that's ok, and some things will carry over to my "28 things" list and some things that are not that important to me anymore will just fall off into oblivion.

These are the things that were accomplished from my 27 things list. You can see the original list here and here. And since this list was never finished, I added some things that were major accomplishments this year.

2)Get my picture project done check
9)Make my own cleaning supplies done - this was really easy
14)Get a funky bundt pan gift from my parents
16)Start an herb garden maybe I should have said "start and tend" and herb garden.

19)Pay off the car sooo happy about this one!
20)Re-learn how to knit I knit (knitted?) a blankie for Elijah

I've been wanting to go to Global Market too. By the way, I think your bike may be in our garage.I can help you with your closets if you want. I'm a list junkie myself.

I'm excited to see the results of #13, 14, 15, and 16 because, you know, I have a heart for your little place. And I want to see the rug and the windows (from the inside).

Also regarding #12, December 1st, Christmas tree lighting and sing-along at City Hall, 6 PM. We hope to be there.
