I recently turned the ripe old age of 29 and it prompted me to go over my good ol' bucket list that I have had in my journal since I was 13 (I have added onto it since then). 
 My thoughts: 
1. Luckily I've accomplished a few things in the past 15 years.  
2. Some of my goals make me laugh.  
3. I apparently have a lot to get done before I bite the dust. 
4. Ironically, I have 29 things yet-to-be-accomplished on this list (though I'm sure I'll keep adding to it). 

So in honor of turning the eternal age of 29 (I'm sure going to love being 29 forever ;)),
I thought I'd share my list on here......

What a fun list! You've done some awesome things! I think I'm going to have to actually write my list, instead of just adding to it in my head :) It's getting a little out of control! haha

Lots of fun things on that list! A lot of those are on mine, too. P.S. - Happy belated birthday. I had the best intentions of calling you that day, or at least acknowledging your birth on Facebook, but it didn't happen. Sorry. I'll make up for it when I see you in two weeks! Right!?!?!
