I try to source all photos and quotes - if unknown and not my own I will state it. If you use a photo or a post, please link back to this site to provide credit. I never promote anything I don't like but I do make small commissions from Amazon links listed on the site and stamps.com. I use Stamps.com for personal and business uses. Love them!

I failed like normally at my yearly birthday goals. I love making them but never seem to finish them. To be honest I forget about them. I need to be reminded more often. I think I'm going to change to monthly goals. It seems a little more feasible for me.
We're going up north for a few days so two of these should be a given! Update will come at the end of the month with my November Goals.
Okay that was a lame try at coming up with a fun title. HA!
One of the items on our big list of things to do in our home is build an island. We really wanted a dishwasher and didn't want to lose any storage. After a lot of discussions we had this great idea to build an island and put the dishwasher in the end facing the sink. Perfect!
Tony did a great job and I love it!
The island was just built with plywood and extra doors we had from the cabinet that should be under the sink. The top is from Ikea.
And we have a dishwasher - lifesaver! How did I ever live without one before?
The kitchen still needs a few things. We need to paint the trim, walls, lights, and do the backsplash. But then I think it's almost done!
I can't believe I'm 30. What a crazy few months!
First this happened.
Yep - We are pregnant! I'm guessing but I think about 15 weeks. I should know an actual time at my next appointment.
Then this happened.
My sister got married. And it was the best day. So perfect. I will have more pictures soon. After the photographer puts them up.
Yep - Life has been crazy the last few months. Work has been nuts, a few big changes have me struggling to get everything done. Life seems to be happening really fast. However, I'm going to start working hard at getting things back on track. I miss writing on the blog. I miss working toward my goals and wish list. I also decided to start Project Life last week for my 30th birthday. So I have set some new goals and hopefully I will be able to start writing on here again. It's nice to look back on. My online journal.
Well now this looks fun!
A little late on this post - so much has been happening over here. I will let you in on the details soon. I wanted to make sure I got this post in before the final in October. lol
Here is my 3rd quarter 29@29

21. Pay off some debt (Something big)
We have paid off quite a few bills and have a plan for some other major bills by the end of the year! A few major issues including a cat surgery and our camera broke and needs to be fixed.
25. Read more.
I read the Hunger Games, 50 Shades of Grey. Currently reading a book on SEO and Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up.

We have camped more this year including swimming! Last year we didn't swim at all.
