16 Days

On November 24th J&I had plans to watch the Cowboys game with the Massey's at my parents. We decided to meet another friend, Branden, up at Frankies for a few bevies and to watch some of the earlier games. Little did I know what was in store for me. Lets just say, I am thankful that I showered :)
It was freezing out in Dallas so the minute we got to my parents I ran to the door... singing "brrr, brrr, brrr... Brrs the word", was locked out and banged on the door... Then this happened


As you can see - I was extremely surprised aaaaaand I do not like being center of attention.

30 days before my 30th birthday.

My Parents and J had been working on this for months while I have been gone. They did such an amazing job!

Thank you to everyone for coming out to celebrate & a HUGE thank you to the parents and my sweet hubs for putting it all together!

I am not sure if you can tell, but there were buckets everywhere with my 30 before 30 list. & if you read this blog, you are aware that A - I haven't been blogging (for multiple reasons) and B - I haven't updated my 30 before 30 list since July And well.. I havent done much since then.

So now I am challenging myself & my family/friends to help me finish this list within the next 16 days. think I can do it? Hahaha - it wont be done perfectly, but I do think we can knock it out, well once Icepocolypse 2013 has left Dallas.

Any volunteers/ideas to get this done?? I'm ready!

Here is where I stand:

1. Go Ice Skating Wishing I had my ice skates still.. I would be accomplishing this up and down out street

2. Roll my own sushi This officially grosses me out ever since I got so sick from mussels this fall... so maybe I will get creative here.

3. Create a cookbook of favorite recipes I'm going to say that I more than likely wont accomplish this one, but we will see.

5. Successfully bake at least 1 dessert I baked my momma's banana cake - yum!
