Four months away!

While ago I posted a list of 15 things I want to do before I turn 30 - in November. I thought I'd give a little progress report of how I'm doing! :)

1. Lose weight - more specifically; ALL the weight I need to reach my ideal weight. I'm working out more, and just completed my first 5k!
2. Go on a missions trip - Complete!!! Haiti was a wonderful experience. Can't believe it's been over a year!
3. Go on a cruise - And it was fabulous! I'd love to go on another one -- soon!
4. Take care of my debt - Still working on this one...
5. Swim with dolphins - Well, I didn't get to swim, but I did play with one!
6. Go to Boston - My favorite city in the world! I absolutely fell in love with the entire atmosphere!
7. See the Red Sox play at Fenway. - Yup... sang "Sweet Caroline" in the middle of the 8th inning and everything!
8. Meet the currently faceless man of my dreams. - Well... God hasn't brought him my way yet. Keep praying. :)
9. Learn to play the piano. - I'm currently calling a couple of people about lessons. Hopefully will start soon!
10. Grow in my relationship with God. - It's better... need to keep daily in the Word and prayer and make healthy choices for my spiritual life.
11. Improve the relationship with my parents. - I talk to my mom every day. My dad is another story...
12. Become a better communicator. - Well...
13. Stop sweating the petty stuff. - I'm going to prayer about more things, but it's always a challenge.
14. Broaden my culture horizons - Haiti definitely did this!!! I'm trying to get better about finding things locally as well, but my random event planner has felt the need to move to Wichita - whatever to her. ;)
15. Read the entire Bible. - I started and got bored in the OT... just found an intense reading where you can read through the Bible in 90 days on youversion.com, so working on that.

This weekend was a giant hurdle for me and I think it has inspired so much more.

Might seem small, but yesterday I completed my first 5k... I walked it, but I completed. It took me 1:08:20, but I completed. I have tried doing the couch to 5k, but I'm so not built as a runner. I hope to maybe be eventually be able to run it, but not now.

Yesterday's walk/run was to benefit SIDS. I walked with the K-Love/Air1 team, but the other members are runners. I have to admit when I pulled in the parking lot, I was nervous. A little intimidated by the runners, but quickly got over it. Right now the next one I'm doing is in October. :)

Six Word Saturday

Here's how it works: describe your life -or something- in six words. Explain or don't, either way, have fun! Visit Cate at Show My Face to read all about it and get started! :)

VBS takes the place of painting!

It's been a crazy week around here and it's about to get even more crazy. VBS starts on the 18th, so the next week will be spent buying craft supplies, painting decorations, and getting the church turned into a Rainforest. :)
