Another 25 update!

With only 3.5 months until my birthday, here's an update of my "list" (original post here):

- Lose 15 pounds
        Working on it....I'm down 2 pounds so far.
- Have a date with Joe that includes a picnic
Bake a pie
        Lemon Meringue Pie from Lemon Meringue Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke – Made it at my mom’s the weekend I forgot my camera…oops. I’d never made one of these before and everyone who came to the bbq said it was wonderful! Yay me!
- Make homemade spaghetti sauce
Find a fantastic recipe for salsa and making it with veggies from my garden
        I made salsa just by throwing a bunch of stuff together.  I had about 2 cups peeled fresh tomatoes, ¼ cup chopped onion, 1 chopped jalapeno, 1 clove minced garlic, a little salt, and some fresh chopped cilantro.  It turned out fantastic!!  I can’t wait for more tomatoes to be ready!
- Bake a loaf of bread
- Visit a new city
         Only 30 days until the trip. I just bought tickets to Louisville and Lexington in October to visit my bestie, Danielle.  Even though I’ve been there before to see family, I’ve never explored as a tourist.
Go to a concert
         Steel Magnolia – June 23
         The Band Perry – June 30
         Gloriana – July 7
         Randy Rogers Band with Reckless Kelly – July 14
         Corey Smith – July 28
         Kenny Chesney – July 30
         Sunny Sweeney - August 4
         Craig Campbell - August 18
Run a 5K (and train for it first)
         Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure – August 14
- Make a menu for the week using my cookbooks, or at least Monday through Wednesday for the whole summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day)
         I definately could have done better here, but I'm not going to complain. I did prepare for Mon-Wed   
         every week.  Sometimes I even prepared for the rest of the week too.  I'm going to keep doing this 
         one.I’m doing a good job prepping for part of the week
- Write notes to friends
         I wrote a couple of notes recently and sent them off.  I am going to do this again soon.
- Make homemade salad Dressing
- Blog at least 1x per week!
         Yeah, not so much.  I tired, but not hard enough.  Definitely need to work harder at this one!
- Volunteer with an organization
         Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Shirt Pick-Ups - August 9 & 12
- Go to church more
         Haven't gone once yet.  Oops.
Go to a Sporting KC Soccer game at their new stadium (I'm not sure when construction is going to be completed though – Opened June 9)
         Hubby and I went July 23 with some friends from work.  It was crazy hot, like 100 degrees. We were trying not to move and photos slipped my mind, but the stadium was really awesome.  I hope we can go again this season.
- Attend a Play, Symphony, or Orchestra Concert

         August: Committed and.....? Oops only 1 book again.
