30 Before 30 - Ready, Set, GO.

Mr. Lawler reminded me last night that some people (himself included) still check this little blog on a regular basis... and leaving it idle for over a week doesn't do much for my loyal readers! So, I decided that since I never posted the 30 before 30 list in its entirety, it was about time I get it up here to make it "official". It's a fair mix of goals and fun stuff, easy feats and more difficult tasks, free or cheap projects and pricier extravagances. Fingers crossed I am able to start making a dent in all of this soon!

30 BEFORE 30
1. Leave the country
2. Enroll back in school to begin working towards my bachelor's degree
3. Learn to sew
4. Put all of my pictures in albums, get prints of all of my digital photos and put them in albums as well
5. Work for myself (whether it be in addition to another job or a full on business)
6. Run a marathon. Ok ok... or at least a half marathon
7. Take a trip with my sister
8. Spend a day at a spa
9. See the Grand Canyon in person
10. Finish compiling my Top 10 (Easy) Recipes list
11. Get dressed up and take my Gramma to dinner and a show
12. Make money blogging (seriously, even if I make $10, I'll count it)
13. Become more of a morning person
14. Buy real truffles and feel amazing cooking with them
15. Join a team. Any team.
16. Go to a drive-in movie
17. Create a piece of artwork to hang in my home
18. Meet Harry Connick Jr. in person
19. Reduce our grocery spending by utilizing coupons on a regular basis
20. Make a loaf of bread from scratch
21. Dramatically improve my posture
22. Volunteer an afternoon at the Greater Chicago Food Depository
23. Go on a picnic with Dan
24. Cook a 5-course meal
25. Take a dance class
26. Bake my late Grandmother's famous cheesecake
27. Learn how to do my makeup further than my 3-minute daily ritual of mascara and sheer mineral shadow, and learn to do something more to my hair than wear it down or throw it in a ponytail
28. Go ziplining or parasailing (both are things I am terrified of)
29. Figure out a system for dealing with mail, bills, important papers, etc, that actually WORKS for me, and use it
30. Spend a weekend with Maryrose, just the 2 of us, eating good food, drinking good wine, getting the tattoo we've been talking about for years, and wasting our time away doing whatever we want

While I reserve the right to change things on the list if I really really want to, the truth is that I've put a lot of thought into what's on the list, and my overall goal will be to keep it as is. Wish me luck... and let me know if you want to join me in any of my adventures! :)

I came here from Tabitha's blog where you had posted the link to your 30 before 30 post.

I need to add #21 to my list too "Dramatically improve my posture"

That's something I keep reminding myself but seem to have a Goldfish memory about it. :)

Thanks for sharing your list
