It’s My Birthday: My 30 in 30

It’s my 30th birthday y’all.  I will forever act like an 8 year old about my birthday.  I want cake, I want attention and I want presents.  Yahoo!

I decided that I would follow suit with what many other 30 year olds do on their birthday and make a list of the 30 things I want to do in my year of 30.  One day I well learn to make my lists pretty like Calee but I am not smart enough yet.

1.  I want to run a 5K.  I signed up for the Color Run in October….so now I just have to do it.   Calee was cool enough to let me join her team.

2.  I want to take some type of Sugar Detox Challenge.  There are a lot out there….so maybe this one?

3.  I want to volunteer somewhere.  Suggestions?

4.  I want to keep a journal and at least jot down things I am grateful for on a semi-daily basis.

5.  I want to read 12 books.  I am struggling to get through the final book in the 50 Shades of Grey series (I am totally bored of it!) and once I am done I am ready to go full force into something else.  Suggestions?

6.  I want to take some type of art class.

7.  I want to take a cooking class…maybe like 5 cooking classes 🙂

8.  I want to save some money and go on a shopping spree for a new wardrobe WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY!

9.  I want to take our first family trip outside of Iowa.  Just a weekend thing.

10.  I want to visit a medium.  Like the Long Island Medium but a little closer to home.

11.  I want to learn to can.  I want to make salsa, applesauce, and can stuff from my garden.

12.  I want to read the bible.  I want to understand what I read when I read the bible.

13.  I want to try my hand at craft fairs this winter around Christmas time.  I want to make some money.

14.  I want to meditate….and enjoy the benefits.

15.  I want to have a dinner party.  A successful and fun one.

16.  I want to cook at least 2 new recipes a month.

17.  I want to get married to the man of my dreams.  August 18th is coming up fast!

18.  I want to eat clean.

19.  I want to do big girl push ups….like more than 3 in a row.

20.  I want to scrapbook at least once a month.

21.  I want to try out for a play.  I was a pretty big deal in high school and had so much fun.

22.  I want to get 50 followers on this blog.  🙂

23.  I want to make and follow a budget.

24.  I want to reconnect with my girlfriends.  After having Stella I kind of forgot it was okay to have girl time.  Friends….call me 🙂

25.  I want to have a working office.  I procrastinate soooo much!

26.  I want to take another pole fitness class here.

27.  I want to make my kitchen more functional.

28.  I want to truly ignore my kangaroo pouch.  Maybe wear a bikini again 🙂

29.  I want to fulfill my summer bucket list.

30.  I want to go to a bloggers conference.


Holla!  I am going to eat lots of cake and not feel guilty.

Have a great day!
