30 Things To Do Before I'm 30...

Ok. I'm finally finished.

This list is quite an assortment. From silly quick things to involved year long processes!

I tried to be practical while still pushing myself to work. I couldn't very well put down "Take a trip to Paris" even though I would LOVE to go to Paris this year... it just ain't happening. :)

I also tried to list things that could actually be measured... actually physically completed, but there are 2 things on the list that may be hard to measure.

So without further ado... in no particular order... I present my list of "30 Things To Do Before I'm 30"!

1. Reconnect with old friends. Call Kristy, Heather, Kim and Crystal once a month... every month.

2. Plan a trip with my high school pals (see list above!).

3. Meet Kim's baby girls (who have not yet arrived, but it's looking like they will be here before the end of next week! YAY KIM!!).

4. Go to Decatur, GA and visit my elementary school friends. Many of which I am reconnecting with via Facebook.

5. Stop biting my fingernails... AGAIN!

6. Work out 3 times a week.

7. Run a 5k. There is one on March 28th to support Cystic Fibrosis.

8. Learn to apply my makeup better.

9. Work on having better posture. :) That one is just for my dad who always pulls my shoulders back we he sees me slouching over.

10. Be more confidant.

11. Play my violin again.

12. Visit the west coast.

13. Join a book club. (CHECK!)

14. Audition for a play.

15. Scrapbook 1 weekend every month.

16. Help build a house with Habitat for Humanity. (This is the one Jaime can help me with since she is the person that organizes the volunteers!)

17. Start donating blood again.

18. Learn to make Saige's "state pillows".

19. Finish my kitchen cabinet remodel.

20. Organize all of our photos into boxes by date.

21. Create files for vacation souvenirs that need to be put into scrapbooks.

22. Make an 8x8 scrapbook of our Disney Vacation.

23. Hang stuff on the walls in my house.

24. Send more handwritten notes... randomly.

25. Wear a cute hat.

26. Pay off credit card debt.

27. Remodel our bathroom.

28. Get rid of clutter!

29. Become more disciplined in household chores.

30. Tile my back splash.

So, there you have it... I better get started!

Great list! Now, you've made it public you have all your readers keeping tabs on you so you'd better carry through :-)

First, Happy belated birthday!
Second, I enjoyed reading your list. It's meaningful and measurable, just like you said. Very nice.

Good luck! With so many of these items being reasonable, I've no doubt that you will achieve success.
