hi, 30

Thursday, 10 September 2015

crossing off #2 on the list below - a trip to Nashville with my mom and sister in July. It was incredible!


Back in May I wrote a little 30 before 30, a list of things that would be nice to do before turning 30. The big day came on Sunday, September 6th. I turned 30 years old. It sounds sorta old, but I still feel about 24 most days. And hopefully I still look 24 years old.

Well, I guess I was a bit ambitious back in May. Maybe I'll extend this to my 40th birthday.
  1. Jump out of a hot air balloon.
  2. Go on a girls trip with my mom and sister.
  3. Surf in Virginia Beach. 
  4. Complete an Olympic distance triathlon.
  5. Finally finish reading Atlas Shrugged.
  6. Floss regularly.
  7. Run a half marathon in under 2 hours. I missed that mark by 9 minutes last year!
  8. Be a better plant mom and garden more.
  9. Go fly fishing and spear fishing with my little brother.
  10. Hike (parts of) the Appalachian Trail. 
  11. Volunteer locally.
  12. Take better care of my skin.
  13. Make a habit of consuming less sugar.
  14. Finally take off the ugly wallpaper in the bathrooms.
  15. Be comfortable in my body.
  16. Be more present for friends and family. 
  17. Write more– letters, blog posts, journaling...
  18. Work on being a better communicator for my husband.
  19. Call my siblings and closest friends more often.
  20. Complain less.
  21. Cook more meals at home, preferably with my husband.
  22. Stop biting my nails.
  23. Be a (better) morning person. 
  24. Spend more time with my nieces and nephew.
  25. Save more money.
  26. Be content with saying "no."
  27. Get to my goal weight of 135lbs.
  28. Start those front end development courses I've been wanting to take.
  29. Take Jay to see the trees in the water of the Great Dismal Swamp.
  30. Be able to hold a handstand and do 3 pull-ups. I've always been more of a legs girl.
Let's do this thirties.
