30 Days until I turn 30!

Well... I'm one month away from turning 30!  This 30 Before 30 list was much more ambitious than I thought it was.  A year really does fly by so fast.  See also:  I can't believe that BB will be 2!  It seems like his first birthday was just a few months ago.

So, if I'm honest with myself... #3 (visit Canada), #13 (take some piano or bass lessons) and #26 (buy some stock) are probably not going to happen.  Excuses: I seem to have lost my passport, I am not musically inclined and we are saving for a house.  The ones that are in light grey are in the works. The other ones? Who knows!
  1. Sew something using a pattern
  2. Make my own sushi
  3. Visit Canada (again)
  4. Visit Nashville
  5. Run another half marathon
  6. Take the train somewhere new
  7. Go on a snowboarding trip with Dan
  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
  18. Renew my wedding vows
  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. Go to all 5 of Tacoma's museums (4/5)
  29. Go on a backpacking trip / an overnight hike
  30. Make people laugh

Was my last year of my 20s my best?  Possibly.  I didn't take a lot of vacations.  I didnt seize the day everyday.  I got a lot of good sleep, though.  Ha!  I know that my 30 - 31 year will be incredible.  There are a lot of fun things coming up, like:  our 10 year anniversary, BB's 2nd birthday, a Mediterranean cruise and my brother's wedding!  So, for the next 30 days I might spend less time worrying about my 30 before 30 list and more time getting excited for the future.



  1. Yay! I turned 30 in January and I love being 30. It's not bad at all. Also, I've gone to CameraTechs in Ballard to clean my sensor (I have an older Canon 30D) and they were great.
