30 before 30 - the list is complete!


get excited.
the list is complete.

some exciting, some mundane, some cost $$, some are free... just a wide variety of things that I'd like to have "notched" off my belt by the time I turn the big 3-0. I'll keep the list here permanently for you to be able to check in on my progress as I go. There are a few things on the list I've already done [travel outside the country, skydiving] but I want to experience those WITH my Danny J - he just makes everything that much better.  

To be honest, I realized as I  made the list there are a lot of things that I'm really lucky to have accomplished at a young age that are on a lot of people's bucket lists [four continents, held a baby kangaroo, spent a month in Italy, snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef, spent time in Wine country, lived at the beach, been all over the country, and so on] and of course there are many other things that I would LOVE to have accomplished by the time I was 30, but let's be real - I'm not rich [humble state servant pleased to meet your acquaintance]. So, some of these adventures are definitely costly and I tried to keep those to a minimum.


let's just hope the "rapture" doesn't happen at 6pm tonight and I can actually work on this list for the next year and half!

well, anyways.
I know, you're on the edge of your seat...
so here it is...

Thirty before Thirty
1. Travel outside of the country with DJ

3. Make a rainbow cake

11. Sew something as a gift for someone else
12. See BNL in concert
13. Visit my father's grave in Iowa
14. Visit the Biltmore

I know, #30 is crazy, but don't get all excited - I don't turn 30 for almost two years and it states "take STEPS" not procreate. woof.

This is an excellent list! I can help with many of these/have suggestions:
1. Professional football game: well, the Panthers did just draft the best quarterback in the country so I propose a trip to Charlotte this fall!
2. Please PLEASE let me come to Harry Potter world with you. I am DYING to go.
3. I think we should do Coca-Cola in July when I come to ATL!
4. I don't know what a rainbow cake is, but it certainly sounds good!

I did a 101 in 1001 list rather than a 30 before 30 list. I don't really know why. But i Have a lot of mundane stuff on it anyway.

Great list!!

Sadly, it would be very hard for me to come up with a list...seeing that my 30th birthday is in 24 days! *sigh*
