Just Because Friday: Picture Post of 31 Things for My 31st year

Just Because Friday
This year to celebrate my 31st birthday I decided to create a list of 31 things to accomplish. You can read about my post here and I've been able to do a few updates here and here  and here (enjoy checking them out) so instead of posting a boring old list this week and it being Just Because Friday I'm celebrating accomplishments with a Picture Post of things accomplished on my list :-)

I keep my 31 things list in my office @ work! I love to check things off my list (in pink!)

  1. I vaguely remember seeing the TX Rangers play when I was a Dad was the sports fan, mostly I remember the yummy food! Taking a belly dancing class sounds like it would be really fun...and what language are you thinking of learning?

    1. Hi Rachel, I hadn't been to the Rangers stadium and I lived here for college, but it was nice to go and have fun with my husband and some friends. They didn't win, but it was a super good time.

      I'm really looking forward to taking a belly dance class. I've heard its a great workout, and I'm hoping to build confidence with my body and tummy just sounds so not me that I think I would enjoy it. We have a friend that drums for a troop locally so I think I'm going to try out their studio.

      As for the language, since I speak some Spanish, I'm wanting to learn Italian since its part of my heritage and one day I'll get to go see all the art.

  2. Thanks Jen! i have to admit crossing the massage and facial off the list today was AMAZING!
