My 30 Before 30

4. Print all past pictures since Hallie was born (making progress!)

5. Put #4 into albums.

6. Learn to play "Dawn" (from Pride and Prejudice) on the piano.

7. Re-size my super-cute moo-moo.

8. Get (and stay) pregnant (no pressure, right?).

9. Get my ears pieced!

10. Take a tour of Woodlawn Farm.

11. Give up soda.(I am actually making progress with this.)

12. Visit Kurt in Colorado. (September!!!)

13. Find and buy black and white striped cushions for porch swing/rockers. I changed my mind.

14. Eat hibatchi with Dave.

15. Go on a job with Dave. In the semi. (we leave August 1st!) DONE!!!!!!!

16. Lose 5 pounds. (changed from 10 to 5...let's be realistic)

17. Organize under the kitchen sink.

18. Take a trip with Hallie and Dave. (St. Louis - to the City Museum, Brewery and Neil!)

19. Hang up plate wall in dining room.

20. Make cinnamon rolls from scratch.

21. Buy nightstands for the master bedroom.

22. Buy lamps for the master bedroom.

23. Make a headboard for the master bedroom.

24. Have new windows installed in the house. Blah.

25. Host an outdoor movie night.

26. Host a bonfire.

27. Sew curtains for the laundry room.

28. Pay off sound loan.

29. Pay off my car loan.

30. Host a fish fry.

Yikes, I only have 11 completed. Not good, Keri, not good. I think this week I will try to get some of the sewing things done - re-size my moo-moo, sew a quilt (hahahahahahaha), etc.
I'm making great progress on the pictures of Hallie, but I need to check my "stock" to make sure I'm not re-printing anything. The piano thing will never happen, but I'm not sure what I would change that to?
We have the new windows for the house sitting in the garage, but I'm not checking that off of the list until they are installed, trim back on and the house is cleaned up.
In other news, I'm back to work today after having 10 days off from work. It was glorious and now it's not. But i'm trying to find the joy in my job - but it's tough. But Dave comes home tonight so YIPPEE! It feels like an eternity since he's been home. We will probably maul him when he walks in the door, but I need to remind myself that he will probably be super tired and a bit cranky. Or maybe that will just be me after my first work day.

A few ideas to replace the piano goal:
1. Visit Houston
2. Have piano tuned
3. Make bagels from scratch (note: this is going on my list, to replace my quilt goal, which is no way happening. eventually, yes. in the next month? no way.
