Sounds ok...without question I'd go 100% stocks at your age for retirement investing- build the portfolio yourself and swap out the Total Bond Fund with the Equity Income fund. You'll get dividend income, and the low volatility appreciation of dividend stocks. Also, I'd for 30% in international funds.

But far more important than whether you choose my rec or the Target Fund is that you keep earning, saving, and investing on a regular basis.
