29 Is Gonna Be Fine

Today is the big day.


I am officially 365 days away from my thirties. I'm not freaked out by that fact at all. Noooo.

But, I am a 'glass half full' kinda girl. So this year-the next 365 days-will be dedicated to an idea inspired by Kelly Purkey.

Enter: The 29 List

Hopefully I'll be able to cross all of these things off my list before next year's birthday.

1. Have a girls weekend.
2. Get back into dancing.
3. Run ‘Cape to Cabot’.
4. Host a Tea Party for the girls.
5. Have a picnic in Ferryland at the lighthouse.
6. Get published in Creating Keepsakes.
7. Take a class at the Anna Templeton Centre.
8. Take the tour of The Newfoundland Chocolate Factory.
9. Take a cooking class with Matthew. 
10. Take a selfie every day for a month.
11. Find a tea I enjoy drinking. 
12. Learn to properly ice cupcakes. 
13. Rent a cottage for the weekend. 
14. Finish decorating our house.
15. See the sunrise on Signal Hill or Cape Spear.
16. Visit three new places.
17. Take a beach vacation.
18. Survive a summer without camp.
19. Journal more in my scrapbook layouts. 
20. Make a new friend.
21. Make stamps.
22. Make a point to see my girlfriends more.
23. Revamp my blog.
24. Make a photo book.
25. Take a class in something fitness related that I've never tried before. Spinning maybe?
26. Send more mail.
27. Use my 'real' cameras more. Sorry iphone.
28. Volunteer at a local event.
29. Join a running club. 

That's the list. Ill be posting progress as the year progresses. I've printed out the list so I can carry it with me and have i out in my scrapbooking room to remind me of my goals. I love a good list but what I love even more is being able to cross things off of it! 

Tonight's plans include a little 'camp themed' birthday party with some old friends. I'm pumped. 



  1. Happy Birthday, Krista! You have a great list going. I love this idea and feel kinda inspired to make one for my own birthday in September.

    Hope you have a wonderful day.

  2. Such a fun idea! Maybe I should have one for my 35th this fall. Before I start my downward slide into my 40s. (*sniff*)

  3. Happy Birthday! The list looks great and well rounded, I have a 31 list I am working on this year :)

  4. Happy Birthday Krista! Hope you are spoiled rotten by your boys!!

  5. awesome list krista!! happy happy birthday to you:)

  6. Have a fabulous day - enjoy your birthday party, I know you've been looking forward to it! And meeting up with camp buddies at a camp party will be a hoot, I can't wait to see the pics and LO's!

    Rock away the day, my friend, you deserve a good one!

  7. Love that list-such a great idea. Don't fret too much about your thirties. It's not all that bad. And I'm more than halfway through my forties so you're just a kid still! lol
