Today is my 28th birthday. I will celebrate it with all sorts of good things, including birthday cake, farmer's markets, and train rides at the zoo. In celebration of the day, I want to take a quick look at my 30 Before 30 List.... Only two years left!
Have at least one more child.
Abby Grace Johnson- 4/16/13
Begin building a house on our land.
Become a mini-van mom.
Find a way to make just a little money on a consistent basis. I've decided that this is a hard item to measure... The Lord has blessed us in so many ways, so though I can't name a consistent way I have earned money, He has provided consistently. He is so faithful!
Go on at least one international mission trip.
Teach Sunday School. Beginning 8/19/12
Learn to coupon.
Go on at least one vacation with just Brian.
Go on at least 3 vacations (big or small) with our immediate family. #1- The Grand, 9/14-15/12
Find a way to serve Jesus outside the church.
Find a way to serve and love on our church staff and nursery workers.
Organize fun activities to do during the day with my children.
Make curtains for our living room/ dining room. I have reworked this idea a little- I have purchased curtains and plan to paint them as soon as I have a few spare minutes.
Take a photography class or attend a photography conference.
Go to a Auburn football game with my hubby and children- not just tailgate but go to the game.
Go to a Braves Baseball game.
Run in a 5K. The Color Run 2012!

Take a Zumba class. 5/28/13
Take a good picture of a cow.
Learn how to drive a stick shift.
Refinish one piece of older furniture.
Organize our photos.
Disciple someone. I have actually been doing this for awhile now- thanks Kelsey for the chance to spend time together on a semi-regular basis.
Disciple one engaged/ newly married couple with Brian. We have met with a couple a few times, but have struggled with schedules too much to call this true discipleship. Still hoping for improvement here.
Write a note to someone at least once a month. I haven't had much success with this over the past year but would still love to do this- a sweet word of encouragement can go such a long way!
Go to Harry Potter Land.
Write at least 1 blog post per week. If you are reading this now, you know this one is a complete joke. Go ahead and mark fail.
Update my "blog look."
Love Jesus and serve others!
We have several plans in the works before the end of the year so I am looking forward to marking a few things off the list soon!
Have a stupendous day my friends!
