wishes for twenty five.

WOW! i have not posted in a long time. i am sorry to all of you out there that actually read this. my life has been so hectic lately that blogging has been put on a back burner. hopefully when things slow down i will be able to do this thing properly and not like some crazy posts every other month.

i recently turned twenty-five. i can't believe it. it seems like yesterday i was turning sixteen. i was telling everyone that when i was fifteen i always talked about being twenty-five. i was going to get married by twenty-five. i was going to have a kid at twenty-five. i was going to basically rule the world at twenty-five. God sure does have other plans for us though. :) so, i thought since i made all these things i wanted to do when i was twenty-five when i was younger i would make a list of things i want to do this year that may actually be realistic.

here are some of my wishes for twenty-five.

one) grow closer with God.
two) grow closer to my husband.
three) have a baby by the end of twenty-five.
four) be a good role model for the girls i teach on wednesday nights.
five) teach my dog how to not be a brat.
six) get into our new church building and be successful.
seven) be successful at both of my jobs.
eight) make at least one new friend.
nine) start dressing like an adult.
ten) get more sleep.

birthday fever!

i have such birthday fever right now! i am so excited for some reason that my birthday is around the corner. i have always been big on birthdays. i have been known to take a week off from work, have 3 parties for 1 birthday, and always lots of fabulous shoes are involved. its always funny how excited i am about birthdays. we had a rule in my house that you were not allowed to talk about your birthday until a month before simply for the fact that i would start talking about it the next day.

i will be 25, and sometimes i sit and wonder where did the time all go. it seems like yesterday i was graduating high school. i have certainly lived a full 25 years of life, and i don't regret one single bit of any of it. i don't ever think "if i could go back, things would be different." if we always went back, we would never go forward.

whenever someone doubts that God has a plan for them, i always tell them that i am a perfect example that God does have a plan for you. no matter how much you try to screw it up, He keeps you on the path you were meant to be on.
