Twenty-Seven In Twenty-Seven!

Yes, my dears...this October, I will be TWENTY-SEVEN!
And yet, I still get carded for R-rated movies.

Erin from Living In Yellow just had a birthday, so she has now inspired us all to create our own list!
Ok, so I know that yesterday I said that I don't do goals or New Year's resolutions, 
BUT I plan on making next year the BEST year of our lives, so I need a plan.
My wonderful-hunk-of-a-man, will be returning from nine miserable months in the sand box, so he deserves to have the most amazing year ever! 

How does this plan sound?

1. Go to our first Homecoming Ceremony, and squeeze Will until someone pries me off of him!


I have watched hundreds of homecomings, and I ugly cry every.time.

2. Go home to Florida!
3. Spend Christmas with our families.
4. Go skydiving. My second time, his first.
5. Go on a balloon ride.
6. Go to Las Vegas.
7. Visit Will's grandparents in Ohio.
8. Camp in the Mountains.
9. Visit Royal Gorge and the bridge.

Our last trip to Royal Gorge!

10.  Start moon shinin'. Obviously, Will's idea, but I'm up for it!
PS. It's not illegal if it's for personal use. FYI.
11. Explore Denver more.
12. Take the motorcycle on an unplanned getaway. Just take off and go!
13. Make it to the top of the incline and go back up Pike's Peak.

my sexy man!

14. Figure out something fabulous to do for his birthday.
15. Enjoy my first birthday with him in three years. Damn training and war.
16. Go to Yellowstone.
17. Go to the Grand Canyon.
18. Take lots of picnics.
19. Get back to cooking, since I will have someone to cook for.
20. Read more.
21. Go snowboarding more.

Our first time snowboarding together

22. Take a dance class with Will.
23. Find a yoga class.
24. USE my Nike's
25. Get the Monte Carlo in top shape and do it together.
26. Work less, and dedicate myself to our year.
27. Enjoy the HELL out of MY husband. Excuse my french.

I'm working really hard this year for a reason, and that reason is that I don't want to have to stress about ANYTHING next year. I already promised Will that it will be the best year of his life, a dammit I meant it! I'm going to make sure that next year goes down in the record books. That's a promise.


What are you doing next year? Anyone wanna join the fun...you know where to find me!


Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you that we just kicked off a sweet little giveaway on The Lovely Little Things! I'm giving away a cute little headband an necklace from my farmer's market, and there are some other prizes too!

Great list, so many awesome places you want to go to in the next year, I'd love to go to the Grand Canyon one day.
I'm 31 and still get ID'D quite a biit, not that long ago I got ID'D buying cider, however what was more frustrating than the fact that I am 13 years older than the legal age to buy alcohol is that it was non-alcoholic, I was vey confused!

Janna!! I love this list!!!

My excitement and my smile got wider the more I scrolled down! 27 sounds like it will be an amazing year! I'm turning 27 myself and this has motivated me to put some fun things into thought if not action!

As always, your blog is a great read!!

You're an amazing wifey! I love your list! And you'll LOVE the grand canyon. It took my breathe away, literally. It almost looks fake!

CeCe said...

Good list. They all seem totally doable!! I've been skydiving too! I've done it once but I think I'm honestly too scared to do it again now that I know what it's like.

Jess said...

Always have to have new goals and yours are all super exciting ones! I also just turned 27 this year and still get mistaken for a 16-year-old. I even got carded trying to buy spray paint once! And when I DON'T get carded for alcohol I look really confused!!!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Oh girl, what a great list! Please tell me someone will be videoing his homecoming! I cry at every one of those videos too (even the ones where the dogs greet the returning soldiers... sad, I know, haha)! Anyway, it is going to be an amazing year for you!! :)

Katie said...

those are great things!! I cry when I watch those too. and so many places you want to go - they would be wonderful!

Kristin said...

love your list!!

Jean said...

On a few occasions, I was mistaken for being Brady's daughter. My gosh! That's a crazy one! I'm used to getting carded for rated R movies, too. And some people almost refuse to sell me alcohol. Lol. The perks of looking younger than we are! Wait till we're 30! ;)

Love your list!! I need to make one so I could accomplish it.

THis is a great idea, you both are going to have a fabulous year and have so much fun in the process of doing everything you mentioned. I can't wait to come to CO and do everything. Its such a beautiful place. I haven't been back in years!!.
I'm excited for you both to start this adventure.

Courtney B said...

I hope I'm still getting ID'd when I'm 27 (or almost 27)! Aaaah! I really hope you and Will go to Vegas and want me and Eric to go meet up with you :) It's only 2 hours away from where we live!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I'm turning 29 in a week and I get carded every.single.tme. I think I am old enough that I can start to appreciate instead of hate it (like I usually do lol).

Looks like a pretty epic list :)

Megan said...

Awww, I would love for you to have a homecoming like that and video it!! I would definitely cry watching it!! How much longer til he comes back?

All At Once said...
