The BIG 2-5

All brilliant ideas come from somewhere...right? The brilliant idea to do 25 things before my 25th birthday came from yours truly, M&M. "30 before 30" *Check him out*

I decided to make a list of 25 things I want to complete before my 25th birthday. I'll start marking things off of this list beginning March 15th, 2011 (mah b-day) and will hopefully complete them all by March 15th, 2012 (still my b-day). That gives me a entire year. Think I can do it?

25 Before 25

1. Sign up for WW.
2. ****My eyes only!
3. Drop the coke.
4. List 25 of my greatest ideas.
5. Sing karaoke (Duet Only).
6. Have a picnic in the park with someone.
7. Run in the rain.
8. Run a 5k…again.
9. Triple my savings account. Less shopping, more savings.
10. Go to the beach…any beach.
11. Bike around Lake Hefner.
12. Take dance lessons.
13. Volunteer in the community. 
14. Mentor a teen girl. Let me know if you find a girl in need of a mentor.
15. Attend a music festival.
16. Apply to grad school or decide not to attend grad school for a while.
17. Update my blog at least twice a month.
18. Purchase a professional camera and take a photography class.
19. Share my life story.
20. Play tennis each week during the summer.
21. Plan a big camping trip with my friends.
22. Host a murder mystery dinner party with all the trimmings. Halloween Party?
23. Hop in my car on a Friday and return on Sunday.
24. Enjoy a meatless diet for a month.
25. Recognize the accomplishments of someone other than myself. 

See one you like? Help me mark it off. 


  1. wow, that list would be quite the challenge for me.

  2. I like your list. I should have made a list of 50, yes, 50 things to accomplish before my 50th which is in March! Maybe I can accomplish a few things before that happens.

  3. oh, good list!! There are several I like!

  4. i say when i get cleared to work out again by my gyno (apparently they make you WAIT after having a baby) you and i go do #11 because i have always wanted to. i'm lovin #17... and i would GLADLY be apart of #19.

  5. good luck! I think you can do it! And I can help you w/ #18! :)

  6. Janell, You still have time to make a list.

    Mrs. Garvin, I would love to do number 11 and 19 wtih you. Maybe, 19 while doing 11?

    Des, glad you found my blog and I think it would great if you helped with number 18. You don't have to help with the camera part, but teaching me will be great!

  7. Kay- I bet you can do some of these. :)

  8. Good list!
