Achieving Dreams – Update

0

I am happy to report that my husband and I have found a new church! We really like it there and our son loves it! I jokingly refer it as his “Happy Fun Place”. Hopefully I can cross off a couple more items off my Dream List this year. Doesn’t help that I keep adding stuff and getting rid of stuff.

Number 70 (now number 68 after some editing) is gone! Wooohooo!!

Achieving Dreams – Cruise

0

 I went on a week long cruise in the early part of April. It was really nice and it was a learning experience since it was my first cruise. Went to Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, and Grand Cayman Islands. I really enjoyed my time in almost all the places except Belize. If you cruise to Belize, DO AN EXCURSION! Don’t try to explore by yourself. It’s a poor country and they will bombard you with services. Taxis, hair, nail polish, directions – you name it, they will try to sell it to you. You can’t take two steps without being approached.

Cozumel had a really nice area for shopping but if you want the best chance of doing something fun or exploring, especially if you’re in to history, do an excursion. Mahogany Bay by far was my favorite. Beautiful beach, comfy chairs, expensive bars and other activities available. Excursion is optional but you’ll get a discount if you buy one. I loved the beaches in Grand Cayman, so much so that I forgot to take a picture. Oh well! Again, you don’t need to get an excursion but be prepared to get a taxi to get to a beach.

So, I am happy to say that I can now strike off four things off my list: 27, 28, 36, and 66! Continue reading

Achieving Dreams – Seattle/Portland Trip

0

I just got back from visiting my brother and niece and I really enjoyed the trip. I was a little disappointed however, with the weather. We got there during a heatwave. Oh well. Good news is that I knocked off two things off my list! I got to see Pike Place Market without all the cold and the rain and I got to see fish being thrown. Then a few days later I got eat a maple bacon doughnut from Voodoo Doughnuts. It was delicious.

Oh! I also have an herb garden. Sorta. It’s an indoor garden since I live in an apartment. I have basil, rosemary and mint plants. I’m excited to say they’re growing rather well. Especially the mint. It’s growing like crazy!

85, 88, 111 – Gone!!!

Achieving Dreams – Unexpected Update!

0

Well, thanks to my wonderful husband, I got to cross off another thing on my “Life To-Do List”! So happy! It was completely unexpected and to tell you the truth, I had forgotten it was on my list. Number 25, see a live performance of a popular band I like is now crossed off! My husband bought tickets to see Papa Roach and Shinedown live on Sunday. And since Papa Roach is one of my favorite bands, I was totally excited to be able to go. And let me tell you, it was awesome! If I can see them live again, I totally would! I had a lot of fun and also may have discovered a new band to listen to.

It wasn’t until yesterday that I remembered that seeing a live band was on my list! Yay! So without further ado, #25 is now crossed off! Woohoo! I also did some editing to the list and will be removing two things from my list. They are no longer “important” to me right now.

Achieving Dreams

“Keep your dreams, you never know when you might need them.”

AKA The Bucket List. Yes, I decided to be “original” and make my own bucket list. To be honest I just wanted to write down the things I want to accomplish (hopefully) before I die. It’s so easy for life to just pass you by without realizing it and not accomplishing the things you desire. I don’t want that to happen with me, especially with a new baby on the way. You can say my unborn son is the inspiration for me making this list now. I want him to be confident and know that he can accomplish the things he wants to do, no matter where he is in his life. It’s never too late and all things are possible. And I believe in order to put that knowledge in him, I will have to show him by doing some of the things I’ve always wanted to do in life. My desire is to do this consistently enough for him to realize that by having faith, utilizing one’s God-given skills, and allowing others to help, his goals will always be within reach.

“Cut not the wings of your dreams, for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul.”
