I've seen this done on many blogs, but I liked how Elise had it laid out into sections. She is the wonderful lady behind Books, Bottles and Bags. I read her's and thought I wanna do that too!!! So Waa-laa---here it is!!

What are your goals by the time you're next big milestone birthday arrives?
I can't wait to see how many I get done or in the process of doing. It also gives me more reason to keep on blogging! :)

I hope everyone has a great Thursday! 

Here is a little food-for-thought for the day.

The only reason this is up here is because I'm waking up at 4:30 tomorrow morning to workout and I'll need this afterwards to survive the day!


  1. Thanks for mentioning me and linking my blog! (:
    By the way, I went to read this post last night and it said your blog didn't exist. I might've freaked out a little.


  2. I turn 30 in August of this year and my goal is to be out of credit card debt! Good luck with all of your goals!
