30 before 30

It is sort of a random time to be joining in the 30 before 30 blog fun inspired by my friend Elizabeth... but I'm sort of random, so really it's perfect! This blog has been sitting in my draft folder since March 30th and since I've already crossed one thing off my list I figured I needed to hurry up and post it! Enjoy.

1. Take a pottery class
2. Spend a weekend in the Big Apple
3. Read the whole Bible
4. Become a dog owner
5. Move with Jake to a new place for both of us
6. Host & cook a holiday meal for family
7. Travel to another country
8. Try my hand at cycling or a spin class, maybe form a hobby I really did do this after I drafted this blog, so I'm letting it count
9. Go on a mission trip
10. Visit a castle
11. Visit a vineyard on the west coast
12. Become very involved with or work for a charity/non-profit
13. Run more than one half marathon in a single year
14. Take a spontaneous trip (less than a week's notice)
15. Keep reading... I'd like to average reading a book a month, which equals roughly 64 new books by my 30th birthday
16. Discover my signature dish and perfect it
17. Confidently wear a bikini... in public, not just at the pool
18. Take a "girls only" trip
19. Buy a piece of art (not necessarily anything fancy, but a piece I love & appreciate)
20. Pay off more than 50% of our school loans
21. Be more proficient on a Mac than a PC
22. Become more versed in Adobe Creative Suite
23. Swim with dolphins
24. Take a professional quality photograph; I want people to assume I bought it
25. See/meet someone famous
26. Revamp an old piece of furniture
27. Throw/Attend a baby shower for either Alison or Dani (I'm ready to be an aunt)
28. Talk about/start trying for kids
29. Learn to ski or snowboard
30. Buy a house


  1. Nice list! I see some of these goals being met in the near future for sure. But you can't turn thirty EVER because that would make me... hmm... thirty-three (heh-heh).

    P.S. You must really want to swim with the dolphins... its on there twice!

  2. I guess I really do want to swim with dolphins...but I went ahead and changed one of them out.

  3. I like your list! And I think all those things are very doable :-)

  4. thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. Love it, I've been waiting for this. (Except, obviously, #27-- I'll be waiting on Dani too, because I can by marriage be a pretend aunt) ;)

    I'm tempted to write my own, except for the sad realization that I only have 1 year and 3 months to complete it-- so is it worth it?

    See you on the 12th!!!

  6. PS you guys did #6 (Thanksgiving '09). :)

  7. True, but I was more a host and not so much a cook (I only prepped). I really want to play both roles and at least claim one dish on the table as something I made from start to finish.

  8. LOVE your list! Thanks for joining in!!

    You are well on your way to these lady... I'm especially impressed with "run more than one half-marathon in a single year"... Remember when we BOTH used to talk about running races and never actually even tried. Now, that's just me. :)

  9. I do remember, but I think you put to run one on your list too... so we might have to motivate each other!
