30 before 30

Tomorrow I am turning TWENTY-NINE!  Last year, I wasn't too excited about being 28.  But, 29 is okay.  29 is refined and classy and it's my last year in my twenties so I want it to be amazing.  I used to be extremely driven and goal oriented but over the years I've lost some of the fire and passion I once had.  I feel much more at peace and content with my life but a part of me misses that insanely intense person.  I'm bringing a little bit of her back.  I've made a list of 30 things to do before I turn 30!
  1. Sew something using a pattern (instead of just winging it)
  2. Make my own sushi
  3. Visit Canada (preferably Edmonton but Vancouver or Kelowna will do)
  4. Visit Nashville
  5. Run another half marathon
  6. Take the train somewhere new
  7. Go snowboarding somewhere other than France this winter
  8. Do some local mission work 
  9. Hike in a rain forest
  10. Save $XX,000 for a down-payment on a house
  11. Get my camera cleaned
  12. Write letters to my husband while he's on tour
  13. Take some real piano or bass lessons
  14. Make a homemade alphabet book for BB
  15. Watch every movie that stars Marilyn Monroe
  16. Re-read The Great Gatsby before the movie comes out
  17. Go to a midnight showing of a movie (maybe Les Miserable since it's my favorite book)
  18. Renew my wedding vows (privately or publicly)
  19. Buy a pair of ridiculously expensive shoes
  20. Visit the capital - of anything
  21. Make an informed vote this November
  22. Buy a fish or a lobster from Seattle's Pike Place Market and cook it myself
  23. Take a dip in some hot springs
  24. Create a good, artistic film
  25. Go to a sold-out mega-concert
  26. Buy some stock(s)
  27. Go thrift-store shopping regularly
  28. Visit all 4 of Tacoma's museums (2/4, so far)
  29. Go on a backpacking trip / an overnight hike
  30. Make people laugh
