And in case you haven’t started yet- you still have almost half of a year to catch up with us, so feel free to hop on the band wagon!! (: And grab yourself a button!

Kayli’s Twenty Wishes by December 2013

1. Grow a garden. (Like really grow one. Keeping the weeds out and tending it to it and all!)

Planted! Hopefully it warms up a little and things don’t get squashed by a late freeze! (:

2. Start playing the guitar.

3. Make and send valentines.

My roommate and I made some this weekend! So the sending part is stalling out a little bit. I WILL be sending them- they might be a few days late but they’ll get there! (:

Sent one or two. I’m just excited I actually made them!

4. Buy my first pair of converse.

I didn’t finish this one- but I AM changing it. The fact of the matter is- I just don’t really WANT to spend that much money on shoes I’m not gonna wear very often. What I DO want to spend money on is a new pair of boots that I love! And I’ll be getting on that VERY soon! (:

5. Make meditation a habit. (Not necessarily the kind of meditation you’re thinking, just learning to be.)

I’ve started this one- it’s been sort of difficult because adding a new habit is hard- but I have time to improve.
I have to admit I’m not doing a very good job of this, but I’m trying- a little at a time. (:
Guys, why is this one so hard?! haha I always forget! I’m going to try breaking it down by week, we’ll see if things get any better by next month!

6. Finish an embroidery project. (Like pillowcases, or a dresser scarf or something.)

I actually finished my first pillowcase AND I’ve done another little small project- but I won’t cross this off until I finish my other pillowcase (:

7. Learn the alphabet in American Sign Language.

I started this one too! I had them all memorized for like a week and now I forget a few, so I still need to rehearse to keep it in my long term memory- but we’re getting there!

8. Reread the entire Harry Potter series.

Planning to start The Sorcerer’s Stone soon and work on this once school is out! :)

9. Paint again! (And maybe try something super abstract)

10. Sleep under the stars.

11. Read at least one C.S. Lewis book.

12. Buy 1 FULL outfit that I really love and maybe wouldn’t buy otherwise.

13. Get a professional best friend photo shoot done with Sara.

14. Go fishing in the evening off of the dock.

Plans are in the works for this- prime fishing time! (:

15. Do the Color Run!

All signed up and ready to go in January! (:
Went and LOVED it!!! It rained the whole time and it rocked. Seriously, there was color everywhere and music and people were dancing and yelling and it was THE. BEST.

16. Spend an entire day riding horses PURELY for fun- wherever I feel like going.

Been spending a little time with my favorite girl (my sweet horse) lately and hopefully will be able to grab a day to take her out and have a long day of riding. (:

17. Throw someone a full on party- birthday or just because.

(I just changed this one because I like this wish better! You can see what I replaced it with by going to my original list here.)

So I threw a baby shower earlier this month and it was super fun- but I’m going to leave this one up just in case another party opportunity comes my way. I discovered this is something I LOVE to do!

18. Go to the Catwalk.

19. Learn to bake homemade bread!

20. Donate, even if it’s just a little, to a cause that I really believe in. (I’ll be doing lots of research for this one! (; )

Working on this for sure. Just a matter of getting it done. (:

Well, that’s it. haha Summer has been so good to get going on this stuff. The warm weather and the extra time have made for quicker work of things. I really do need to just suck it up and start reading and get going on the guitar thing. But I’m pretty proud of myself for keeping these things in mind and working on them a little at a time!

Can’t wait to see YOUR progress!


  1. Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

    So that baby shower you threw was AMAZING!!! And I’m impressed you changed from Converse to boots… You definitely need new boots… just saying. 😉

    • Thank you! Sorry it took me six years to reply- stupid internet. haha And I knowwwww! I really like the ones I bought 😉 Next time I’ll be able to actually cross some stuff all of the way off!

  2. I love that you’re learning sign language! That is something I would definitely do, too! xxx

    • Thanks Chrissy! I’m really trying- I figure if I can remember that then I can least spell something out if I need to. (:

  3. I don’t blame you for wanting a pair of pretty boots instead of sneakers. I’m with you on that one!

  4. I have always wanted to do the color run. I’m definitely thinking about doing it this october. Can’t wait to see what you choose to donate to. It’s near and dear to my heart, this donating/volunteering stuff. If only there were 50 hours in a day sometimes!

    • Oh my goodness, you absolutely should! It’s so fun! And I have a few ideas, I love doing that kind of stuff- it would be nice if the days were longer and we could all squeeze more of that in! :)
