21 Things To Do Before I Turn 21

So i like to make list, all sorts just like one of my friend lauren (who gave me this great idea) I hope i can finish all or most of these before my birthday next year!! Keep your fingers crossed that i finish them all!!!

21 Things
  1. Trade my car for a Toyota 4 Runner! Not that i dont love my little Chevy Aveo i have just always wanted a a toyota 4 runner, so why not get it this year!
  2. Sleep out South under the stars one time last summer me, shay & brady slept out south but it was way to cold for me & shay to sleep under the stars so this summer i'll have to take my dads truck & be tougher & sleep in the back!
  3. Eat at the Cheese Cake Factory i almost ate there in March but didn't cuz the boys chose Sonic instead! What weirdo's!!
  4. Buy a new swim suit I haven't purchased one in about 1 1/2- 2 years so i figured so it's about time!!
  5. Run a 5K, 10K or Half Marathon I wanted to do the marathon, but there is no chance of that this year, i can barely run a mile! haha
  6. Learn to play the guitar hopefully next year i will have learned to play the guitar so i can add on my list to play it & sing at the same time!!
  7. Road trip to California only been there once & it was cloudy, so the beach sucked! Gotta go back on a Sunny day!!
  8. Stay up all night to see the sunrise & this doesn't include New Years Eve!
  9. Read the B.O.M. cover to cover...again i have successfully completed cover to cover once & attempted to a few times, this time i'm gonna try to finish it in 60 days or around that!
  10. Go to an amusement park either Seven Peaks, Six Flags, Disney Land ... any park really!
  11. Find a job & a place to live up north i've always want to live up in the Orem/Provo area, hopefully i'll be up there soon!!
  12. Do yoga i have done P90X & pilates but never yoga! Better try it too!!
  13. Go Skydiving This has always been a want of mine, most would say i'm nuts or stupid but hey i wanna fly!! :)
  14. Be able to do the splits! (stretch stretch stretch!!) once upon a time, way back when i could do the splits both ways, but i now i'm very old & am about 3 1/2- 4 inches from touching the ground!
  15. Hike the Narrows up in Zion hiked most of the trails up in Zion, but this one, angels landing & the subway!
  16. Kiss someone in the rain! i have always dreamed about doing this, hopefully it'll happen soon!! haha maybe it'll have to be one of those n.c.m.o's (only some people may get this! Shay you are one of them!!)
  17. Read ALL the Nicholas Sparks books i absolutely LOVE his movies, so i am hoping the book be as good or even better, if that is possible!!)
  18. Learn to wake board tried a million times a few summers ago & face planted it too many times!! hopefully 2010 will bring me luck & i'll be able to get up!
  19. Learn to drive stick shift i successfully did it once but then our car broke down so i could never master it & now i dont know exactly how to do it without killing it every time i shift!!
  20. Lose 10-15lbs. I basically just get into shape & tone up my body & get the size where i'll feel comfortable with my body!
  21. Have a FRIENDS marathon with Marie In 2009 i was one of the unlucky people who got the H1N1 flu, i was out of work & quarantined to my house, so i started with season 1 episode 1 & watched the complete Friends series! (watched them & slept! a very lazy week, but enjoyable!!) Marie has a few seasons & loves Friends as much as i do!
Wish me luck as i try to finish all 21 of these in 10 1/2 months a little less!! Keep checking back for when i post about finishing & checking things off my list!!!

So I just went & saw The Last Song with my friend Marie & let me just say its a new favorite for sure! I seriously loved it! Teared up a little bit.. alright maybe a lot a bit but it was definitely worth it! Nicholas Sparks, is one AMAZING, TALENTED man! I mean this, The Notebook, A Walk To Remember, Dear John..the list could go on & on! I love you Nicholas Sparks!

I would recommend it for anyone who hasn't seen it!
