20 Things I'll do Before I'm 30

In 2 days, I'm turning 27.
I'm not one of those "oh, life is amazing, look I'm getting older, lets embrace the older,
yada yada yada..."
I'm one who watches the calendar all year, hating the greedy day that steals my years. I am not a good birthday person, and I guess it's time to admit it.
((Heres a snapshot on how much I convince myself I'm not getting older- when I was delivering Rielynn the nurse asked me my age and I responded without skipping a beat- 23.
Well, I was actually 24 and had been for a half year. I lost track of my age and forgot I was 24 for a few months and so when my mom heard me tell the nurses this she said
 "wait....Emily you are NOT 23!"
  I felt like I had just lost another year right then. ))
Can I admit something? I don't want to be 27. Or 30. Or 32. Or 37. Or 45.
I want to stay 26 forever.

But, since I can't -
Heres my list.
20 things I want to do by age 30.

1. have a cute bedroom

  1. I am 23, but I'm kind of starting to feel this way, too! Love your list, though! I would love to do all of those things as well!
