Day 1

Hello 29!!! 
It is officially project time, 1 new thing a day for 365 days. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was in Vegas with some of my best friends chatting about this project.
There might have been drinks and wigs happening while this conversation took place.... but at no time did that affect my decision to take on this adventure. ;)

So flash forward a year and a half later and I am as ready as I can be to slowly say good-bye to my 20's and hello to my 30's!

I asked many of my friends and family for recommendations of new ideas, projects, and activities that I could do over the next year. I thankfully received a great number and I can't wait to share my adventures with you over the next year.

So let the games begin....

Day 1: Put date plans in my boyfriends hands. (My idea....since I was told numerous times by my family how controlling and bossy I am. Hey I can't help it, I am a teacher. I have to be controlling 8 hours out of my day. Sorry if it spills over into my personal life).

I, therefore, relinquished all control to mi amor. First decision he had to make, where to go for dinner. He went for an American classic, The Cheesecake Factory, where the menu is 10 pages long. It was quite funny watching him squirm trying to make a decision for what I would eat for dinner. But luckily he knew, I wouldn't put up a fuss if he ordered chicken.

Successful dinner order, check.
Next decision, dessert or no dessert? Who goes to the Cheesecake Factory and doesn't order cheesecake? Now I didn't say a word but maybe my eyes said, "Order the cheesecake or walk home!"
Look who ordered us cheesecake. ;)

We drank coffee, ate cheesecake and enjoyed each others company... and I wasn't bossy or controlling. Mission accomplished. 

I had a wonderful birthday. It was filled with a mountain of homemade cards from my students, hugs, wonderful well wishes and it was all topped off by a control free dinner and dessert. 

If you ask me, 29 is off to a great start.
