Behind The Butter

in my twenty-sixth year

I want to:

plant a vegetable garden

give more hugs

vacuum weekly

eat more greens

hike a tall mountain

do 108 sun salutations in a row

laugh until my stomach hurts…every day

learn how to sew

buy more sale items and less full priced (what?)

get serious about skincare

get involved with a charity

get a puppy!

bake more bread

love more.

I went with the wedges.

    Wow – your hair has grown so long!

    26? Meh – your just a baby πŸ˜‰ – lots of change yet.

    Great goals…except for the vacuuming one…I recommend just getting hardwood floors instead πŸ˜‰ (or someone else to vacuum for you!).

    Happy Birthday….week! πŸ˜‰

    1)Happy Belated Birthday Fellow Gemini!
    2) You are hot (love the hair)
    3) You NEED NEED NEED to try this no-knead bread recipe (you may have already). It is unbelievably easy (it just takes time) and it is fool proof. Really. The results are amazing and everyone always wants me to bring a loaf of ‘my’ bread to every potluck and family dinner. If you do anything in your 26th year — you MUST make this bread! http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/081mrex.html
    Video is worth watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_kmSalsNgM

    I’d hate to make you feel older, but if you’ve just turned 26, then this list applies to your 27th year. Think about it this way: the first year of your life ENDED with your first birthday, your second year ended when you turned 2, and so on… Hence your 26th birthday celebrated the completion of your 26th year and the beginning of the 27th, which, according to your list should be full of bliss!

    You’re beautiful, a fantastic cook and I love your style. These things I can tell from reading your blog. And 26! Your Mama should be very very proud of her daughter.
    Many blessings to you, and thanks for sharing your life.

    Happy Birthday! Good luck with your goals- I would love to read about your adventures with a new puppy! You should do that one first. I think that would help you accomplish your laughing goal too πŸ™‚

    Love all these things, Jenna. Your blog gets better all the time! πŸ™‚ My 26th birthday is next week. πŸ™‚

    I think you should definitely think about tackling a 14er or something. I did one a few years ago and it was amazing. Hiking and walking are the best exercise, I think, good for the body and mind and so many less injuries.

    Great goals! I’m on my 27th year, but can totally relate to most of these goals. Last year, we got our puppy Izzy, planted some veggies (and failed until this year) and I started volunteering for a local animal shelter. I think I will jump on board with the using coupons and buying things on sale as well as the skin care! Need to start preventing wrinkles before its too late!

    Here is a link to a blog I read in Denver (A Little Junk in My Trunk) about her shopping exploits at Goodwill. Perhaps these tips will help with the buying more things on sale item πŸ™‚ Even if there isn’t a Goodwill store in your town, I bet there is some type of thrift store close by and it is fabulous!

    Tip for saving money/buying things on sale: Come up with a goal/savings account for a specific thing, like saving for a house or a puppy or moving and then it makes saving money so much easier. πŸ™‚

    I love this list and hope you achieve all of these things! As for the puppy, please please adopt one from a shelter or a rescue organization. There are so many wonderful dogs (and even puppies) out there in need of a good home! Rescues make the very best pets. Have fun!
