30 by 30

Last week I just got {this much} closer to the big 3-0. As much as I'd like to think that I'm still 22 inside, reality set in and I remembered there's still so much to do by next Feb. 4th! I do feel like a lucky duck though. I've accomplished a lot of my major goals by 29, but there's always room for more!

I compiled a list of 30 things to do by 30. I tried to be as realistic as possible. Some are small, attainable goals, and some I think might roll over to my 30 by 31 list.

1. Visit San Francisco

2. Copy a famous restaurant's dish at home
3. Wear these for more than an hour without crying that my feet hurt

4. Find something fun to do to make extra $
5. Visit Los Angeles...again!
6. Paint a large masterpiece for my living room
7. Re-do my closet into a super-fab wonderland of awesomeness

8. Take a small road trip in my new car somewhere I've never been
9. Make a necklace, just for fun, just for myself
10. Visit a winery...even the local one about 30 minutes away
11. Refurbish a piece of furniture
12. Buy a BBQ
13. Attend some kind of social media seminar
14. Take more pictures {and video!} of my nephew
15. Complete my wedding album
16. Buy an iMac
17. Have a picnic
18. Take Domino to the dog park on a pretty day

  1. Love this post! As someone who recently turned 30 (and had a hard time leading up to it), I totally feel you! I love the idea of the 30 things to do list and yours is SUCH a great and diverse list! Even if you don't finish all of them, it'll be nice to get a few crossed off and then realize that when you actually do turn 30, you still have a chance to keep crossing them off b/c life is still just beginning. Thank you for sharing.

    Happy belated birthday! :)


Pretty please leave me a comment! It makes me feel good :)
