10 on the 10th: Carrie's Guest Post

Hi friends and fans of Rinda! My name is Carrie Rosalind and I blog over at Rosalind Revival about all the stuff that happens in my awesome 23-year-old life. Every year I make a list of things I want to do before my next birthday, and since my 24th birthday is right around the corner, Rinda so kindly offered to let me check one of the items off of my list and do a guest post on her blog. We both like to participate in Shimelle's 10 on the 10th prompt, so today we're pulling a "Freaky Friday" (er, Thursday) and switching ages...she's talking about her life at 23 on my blog, and I'm gazing into my crystal ball and predicting what I will have done by 50.

10 Things I Hope I've Done by the Age of 50:

1. Get married to my Prince Charming. As Snow White said, "Someday my Prince will come." He hasn't ridden up on a white horse for me yet, but I think he's saddling up somewhere right now.

2. Be on TV. It's a not-so-secret recent goal of mine that I want to be on The Bachelor. Yeah, yeah...I know, criticize me all you want. But I've always had an urge to be on either a reality show or a game show. I'll let you know when my episode airs! ;)
(picture taken at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - one of the coolest things I've ever seen!)
3. Ride in a hot air balloon. I seriously have been talking about doing this for years, and if I haven't done this by 50 I'll be mad at myself. 

4. Have a kid. Maybe one, maybe two, no more than three. I'm an only child and plural scares me.

5. Travel to Greece. I fell in love with Greece after reading the book Traveling With Pomegranates, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since.

6. Attend another 20 Jason Mraz concerts. It's no secret I'm a huge Jason Mraz fan, and I've got my tickets in hand for my 6th Mraz show this October. I plan on seeing him every time he comes through Phoenix, and perhaps even making some road trips.

7. Become a published author. Be a New York Times Bestselling author. Shoot for the stars!

8. Be a rockstar. Okay, maybe not really. But I've just started playing guitar and I'm a little obsessed with it. I'd love to write some of my own songs and maybe even perform at an open mic night sometime...or ya know, opening for Jason Mraz would be pretty cool too.

9. Have a bookshelf full of scrapbook albums I've created. I've seen Rinda's bookshelves, and they are phenomenal. SO many scrapbook and art journal pages to be flipped through. One can only dream to rival her someday.

10. Be happy.
Thanks so much for letting me take over your blog for a day Rinda!

xoxo,
Carrie Rosalind

You two are so cute. I LOVE that you traded places and guest blogged for each other - and what a GREAT idea to do 10 on the 10th as your theme.

Carrie ~ I love your list of stuff to do before you are 50. Knowing you, I suspect that you will get it all done!!! ♥

Irene said...

Carrie you sound like a real go-getter. I hope you start checking off that list real soon. Rinda, what a great idea trading blog. You two are so creative.

Melissa said...

What a great list - good luck on all your dreams & as long as you are successful with number 10, the journey to the others will be fun!

Sian said...

A powerful list! Riding in a hot air balloon? That one scares me, but I'd like to give it a go too

Great list of things. I don't think I could get into a hot air balloon .

Good luck with the bachelor!

Becky said...

Lovely post Carrie! Hope you manage to achieve all of these :)

Jennifer Grace said...

Great idea to swap blogs for the day! Carrie, your list is cool. I think it would be fun to be on The Bachelor! That photo of the hot air balloons is amazing, and I share the dream. I will go up in one some day. x

What a great idea to switch places! I loved your list, Carrie. Unlike Amy, I'd be terrified to ride in a hot air balloon, but going to a hot air balloon festival was one of the coolest things ever!
