16/30 Things: Accomplished

{To know what I’m talking about, and to see past 30 Things posts, start here…}

16. What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?

**********

1. Being worthy to be married in the Temple.
2. Having James, and all that encompasses.
3. Forgiving people that hurt me. {Posts about that here and here.}
IC Council 2008
Starlee, Jen, Claudia, Kate, me, Ashley, Rachel [missing Stephanie]…
These girls helped me through some very hard times!

4. Serving a full-time mission for the LDS Church in Ireland for 19 months.
5. Getting a Bachelor’s Degree {7-year plan, baby!}, and being at the top of my department.
Other accomplishments of note:
  • I was debt free all through college, except for my car loan, and paid my way through school with just a little help from my parents
  • I paid off a 5-year car loan in one year
  • I lost 70 pounds {after gaining 70 pounds whilst pregnant} within 6 months of James’ birth
  • I got 2nd place in 5A State Tennis, with my little sister Ellie, my senior year in high school      {We may have gotten 2nd place, but our record was better than the team we lost to…}
  • Pretty sure I invented the word “duh” in kindergarten.  I specifically remember thinking of it all on my own and starting to say it all the time without ever hearing anyone say it before.  You’re welcome, World.
