30 before 30…

A few months ago, I had a hair-brained idea.

You see, I turn 30 years old this year. I’m not sad or upset about it – it’s a part of life. Everyone is going to turn 30 eventually. My life will not be over, it’s just another day, just another number.

To start, I am and very blessed. I know that I have accomplished more in my 29 years than a lot of people hope to accomplish in their entire lives. I have a successful career (and I love my job…that always helps!), I have fabulous co-workers, an awesome husband and family…I love my life!  I’m a dreamer and each time I reach one goal, my mind is already formulating what will come next.

Every day, we are all given so many amazing opportunities to truly LIVE our lives… that’s what I’m going to do! Here’s my chance!


I had a thought. What if I created a list of things I want to do before I turn 30 - a list of 30 items, some easily attainable, some not so easily attainable.

I began to formulate this list in my mind over the summer so I’ve had a few months to think about it. I’ve accomplished a few of these items, but I still have a little ways to go! It’s been a fun ride so far! Can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store! (Hey! That rhymed!)

1.) Go out of my way to do a nice thing for a stranger
2.) Stay at a Plantation Home Bed and Breakfast
3.) Play the part of a Disney Princess
4.) See a Broadway production
5.) Step foot on Canadian soil
6.) Watch the entire series of Star Wars – all 6 movies (to date, I’ve only watched the 1st movie and 45 minutes of the 2nd…I kinda fell asleep!)
7.) Read an entire book series
8.) Take up a new sport (along with running)
9.) Try 10 new recipes
10.) Eat at a Top Chef Restaurant
11.) Purchase a brand new car
12.) Take an out of town trip alone
13.) Go Vegetarian for an entire week
14.) Take a fitness class (yoga counts)
15.) Learn how to change a flat tire (hopefully not my own)
16.) Take another Photography class
17.) Along with #16, figure out how to use Photoshop
18.) Attend the midnight premier of a movie
19.) Learn how to shoot a gun
20.) Finish every un-read book on my Kindle
21.) Run a Full Marathon with a Charity
22.) Visit a city I’ve never been to before
23.) Dye my hair (it’s never been dyed before!)
24.) Do something I’m completely terrified of
25.) Stay awake for 24 hours straight
26.) Blog for an entire week (at least one blog per day)
27.) Learn to speak French
28.) Watch the sunset from the beach
29.) Save a life
30.) Forgive.


Four months and counting!

I better get to work!! :0)


  1. I've done this past couple years (ages 31 - 34) but I decided against doing it this year. It is a lot of fun though! Can't wait to see you make your way through the list! :)

  2. I did this also when I turned 30 last year, it was really fun! I bet you will do also!

  3. Great list! Good luck with it!
