My Last Day as 25

25 has been an excellent year and tomorrow I'll try out 26! As a little bit of a celebration of a great year, I thought I'd share how I started it as well as 25 things I did during it.
Brian took me to breakfast at the Root Cellar Cafe. I don't remember what I ordered, but I do remember these waffles a la mode for dessert! What a way to start the day, right? Then we went for a walk along the San Marcos River. It was where Brian asked me to marry him too (not that day)!
My birthday present was Jack Rogers sandals. We had celebrated with my parents the weekend before since we were in town for a Memorial Day picnic/wedding shower. They gave me my phone.
After Brian had to leave for work, Stefanie came over to the lake house and we ran errands and layed out. We hung out last night and it was great to catch up despite truly awful service at the River Pub.
That evening we went to my favorite restaurant, Liberty Bistro, for dessert and wine. I call a lot of restaurants my favorite, don't I? Just goes to show you how much I love food I guess!
So you know quite a bit more about the rest of my year already, particularly the 2nd half, but here's a summary of some of the things I did this year. I'm working on a 30 before 30 list that I'll get started on tomorrow!

25 Things I experienced at 25 (many for the first time)
1. Married the love of my life
2. Sang karaoke
3. had a couples massage
4. went deep sea fishing
5. hosted Thanksgiving
6. played XBox
7. played bocce
8. made a toast
9. planted a garden
10. made a house a home
11. mowed grass
12. taught Life Teen
13. went to Mexico
14. got certified to teach math and science
15. paid taxes
16. joined NBRW
17. changed my name
18. got my first (2) pair of shoes over $100
19. saw Willie Nelson
20. bought a bike
21. climbed a rock
22. went to the rodeo
23. made a new friend
24. visited New York family
25. started a blog
Notice that I didn't get to put met Laura Bush on the list. Once I got directions to the place I realized there was no way I could make it before the check-in time so I stayed home instead and did enjoy my evening. Thank you to those of you with advice! My last day at 25 has been observed with a physical at the docs office, some cleaning and watching Gone With the Wind. I have a really yummy meal planned for when Brian gets home and then we're going down the street to a meet and greet for our congressional candidate, Bryan Underwood. All in all, a nice day. The birthday and weekend plans are still a little up in the air, but you'll hear about it after it happens!
Check back tomorrow, because I won't be the only one to be getting presents!
