1. Train for and run a half marathon
This goal may have to extend to "25 while 25 - or through my birth month, even if I'm 26." The half marathon I'd hoped to run this fall just isn't going to happen. It's now October and a month of time that I'd planned on training has passed me by. I'm hoping the Spring will be a different story! This will NOT be the item that keeps my 25w25 from being a success!
2. Try 15 new Keep it Local retailers/restaurants
- I haven't been great about keeping track of this, but the only addition I think I can make is Bricktown Brewery.
3. Try 15 new recipes
So, I should probably start working on this one. But, my friend Bobbie started a new blog this week, and she's doing meal planning! I might just start with a couple of her recipes!
5. Take a calligraphy class
I'm signed up to take a class on December 4th in Dallas, and I'm absolutely GIDDY about it!
10. Buy a new purse
I've been surprised with a couple new purses... does that count?

11. Send a care package to 3 different people, just because
Sent a necklace to Mommacita from Bow & Arrow
13. Read 5 new books
I'm still "in progress" with the last update -- that's embarrassing
14. Give up sweets for a month
I start October 1st - pray for me - and those around me!
19. Put $25, at a minimum, in savings every month
So far so good!
20. Try 25 new "tastes"
I had my first macaroon when Mommacita and I were in NYC. For those of you who love these French cookies, I'm sure the idea that I first tried one at the old age of 25 is appalling, but now I can say that I have! Added eggplant parmesan - courtesy of "Chef Kasey." I'm working on getting him to teach me to cook. Also, I tried Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese. I've had plenty of pimento cheese in my life, but the hatch chile was a new taste for me!
25. Write a letter to myself that I open at age 30
Boy oh boy, I am going to have a lot of material for this one... navigating life sure seems hard at times!
I'm glad to be back to blogging - but I'm also glad to be refocused on my 25w25 list! Here's to setting - and achieving - goals! xoxo, E
