31 is fast approaching, but lets focus on 32

Since my birthday is a week away, I have complied a list of things I would like to accomplish before my birthday in 2012. I believe I am the only women in the world that hasn't cared about dish patterns, or decorating styles, or bedding decor. My home has always just been put together. The 'styling' in it has no cohesion (honestly I don't believe there is any cohesion). I have been ok with this before, until I started realizing that next year I will be 32. (I know cart before the horse since I haven't turned 31 yet, but some things on the list will take time and money to complete so I better plan it out, right? Right!) So I have compiled a short list of a few things I need to work on before I turn 32, I would like to OWN a set of matching dishes that have NO chips out of them. (Sadly, my cupboard is filled with a hodgepodge of dishes given to us from many situations. I think I need to bite the bullet and buy a matching set.) This should include silverware. I have never bought a set of silverware. Ever. Again always given to us, and never matching.
A set of matching sheets with a coordinating comforter should be on this list. To complete this part, it would require a set of MATCHING pillowcases. (Unfortunately, this might mean I will have to 'retire' the old dinosaur pillowcase and set aside all 10 of my mismatched blue pillowcases.)
And lastly on my list of things to do in the next 372 days, I would love to have some cute decorations for our entertainment center. I think the candle holders are a bit weak and I know I could do better.
So there it is all laid out to sit and eat away at me for the next year: my goals before I am 32. (I am not excited about turning 31 this year so I think it is best to just skip over it and move on to the next.) So here is to 2012, may my home be pulled together with some sort of cohesion! Cheers!

My home sounds the same! I currently have Frosty the Snowmen pillowcases on my bed with a fishing quilt on my bed. It's awesome! I still always write your birthday on my calendar. Your my oldest friend! :)
