30 Before 30

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was writing a 28 in 28 list.  You know 28 things I want to do while I’m 28.  However, as I was writing said list, I realized that the likelihood that I would complete some of the things on the list in a single year was very much unlikely.  So I decided to change my list from a 28 in 28 to a 30 before 30 list.  
This gives me 2 years to complete the list you’re about to read.  Some of them are personal, some just for fun, some I already know I will be completing, and some are blog related.  I think I’ve got a pretty good mix of stuff here.  
Here we go….
1. Go to Washington D.C.

2. Go to Europe again.

3. Live in and decorate my own apartment.

4. Go on another cruise.

5. Run a 5K or some other type of race.

6. Try online dating again.

7. Reach 1,000 Instagram followers.

8. Get the domain I purchased to actually work with my blog and eventually re-design the blog again.

9. Read 200 books – 100 for each year I have left till 30.

10. See a Broadway or Broadway type play.

11. Take a photography class.

12. Make photography a side business.
13. See Michael Buble in concert. (Hopefully he goes on tour in the next two years.)
14. Go back to Universal Studios and see Diagon Alley.

15. Apply for the Fund for Teachers travel grant.

16. Be healthier- possibly go down a jean size or two.

17. Buy a clothing item full price from Anthropology.

18. Pay off remaining my credit card debt. 

19. Build my savings.

20. Visit either: Boston, Chicago, or Seattle.  (or all three! 🙂 )
21. Meet my future husband.

22. Take a (or preferably multiple) workout class – Zumba, Pure Barre, Spin….something!

23. Attend another blog conference.

24. Go skiing.

25. Record a vlog.

26. Learn to do my hair in an up-do.

27. Learn to like wearing high heels.

28. Eat in a restaurant by myself.

29. Send close friends and family birthday cards starting this summer.

30.  Go to the Houston rodeo.

Well there ya have it!  30 things to do before I turn the big 3-0.  Let’s do this!

  4. oooh i have seen michael buble twice.. he had two shows in sydney on the same tour and i went to both of them hahaha. he was really good, though i wish i hadn't seen two shows back to back because he recycled his jokes which i know is probably super common but it made me sad lol. he was so good though!


  5. Love that you changed it to a 30 before 30 list! If you ever need a partner crime for any of these I'm totally game! I'm always down for a Broadway play, especially since they come through town all the time, and I'd love to take you to the Houston rodeo for the first time next year! I can't wait to see how you do with your list!
