27 Things in my 27th Year...

Today marks exactly ONE MONTH until my 28th birthday y'all! That means you still have plenty of time to work on finding the perfect gift for me (kidding!). I started dreading my birthday a couple years back - I would think of all the things I hadn't accomplished yet and would hate the fact that my birthday just meant turning another year older and still not having accomplished any of those things. I've gotten over it though - I don't know when my mind set changed but I realized that age is just a number and I should just enjoy life and not worry about age anymore. Here's to embracing turning 28 in a month!

Last year, on this exact day, I posted about 26 things that I wanted to remember from my 26th year so I decided to turn it into an annual tradition. Today I leave you with 27 things I want to remember from my 27th year:

1| Flying to Vegas with one of my best friends from high school on my 27th birthday and spending three great days in Vegas with her
2| Stepping outside of my comfort zone and filming an accent challenge vlog to post on KUWK

3| Baby Aylah finally making her appearance - the first girl for the Mathison side since Graycie Bear was born 4 years before!

4| Spending a night in the Queen City with friends from high school to celebrate Angie's wedding

5| Running a Glow Run 5k in the pouring rain in Minot, ND with the Twin - my 4th official 5K

6| Spending time with family at their cabin at Lake Metigoshe 

7| Taking the girls to the Zoo in Minot before they headed back to school

26| Krickit's FIRST birthday!
27| Attending my first ever MLB game, falling in love with baseball, AND the epic weekend that was had in the Twin Cities

Lots of great things happened in my 27th year AND I still have one full month left to make even more amazing memories for my 27th year! 


  1. This is so fun! I've never seen this done before. I may have to steal this! Looks like 27 was great, Cheers to 28!!! :)

  2. This is such a cool post idea. I also love the idea of a reverse bucket list.

  3. I love this idea!!! I was dreading turning 27 but now that it's here it's not that big of a deal (I guess), but since there's always so much pressure to think about what you HAVEN'T done it's so nice to see the reverse happening! FOUR FOR YOU.
