Monday Musings: 30 Before 30

I spent the weekend in Boston for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower & had such a great time with her, my other sister-in-law, & mother-in-law. Definitely rare when its just the girls!

This was also the first time I had seen everyone since my birthday, which reminded me that I was now 29. And that my goal of doing a 30 before 30 list was um, due. Since it’d be nice to give myself an actual year to go through it!

I had a list half finished but finally sat down & put the rest of it together.

So here is my list of things I WILL accomplish in the next year!

1. Have a picnic on the Potomac

2. Take a day to visit museums

3. Go on the paddle boats on the Potomac

4. Go to a Nationals game

5. Spend a day exploring DC by myself

6. Go to Blues Alley with the husband

7. Celebrate Bastille Day in the city

8. Learn to drive in DC

{Take note that I’ve lived here 26 years & still get ridiculously lost}

9.Host first giveaway on the blog

10. Be a guest blogger

11. Take a class on html

12. Make ice cream

13. Take a sewing class

14. Make most of my Christmas gifts

15. Make a Bobby Flay meal for the husband

16. Grow vegetables

17. Do 5 projects I’ve pinned

18. Watch The Godfather trilogy

19. Learn to ride a bike {yes, you read that correctly!}

20. See an opera

21. Go to an outdoor festival

22. Have a TV series marathon

23. Read 5 classic books

24. Record my singing

25. Take a body pump class at the gym

26. Get monogrammed stationary for my husband & me

27. Go to the beach

28. Explore a new town or city

29. Take a day trip with the hubs

30. Husband & I take a vacation with my parents


And since I have not officially started anything on this list, I’m allowing myself a few days to adjust.

Any suggestions of things I should have added?

    Love the blog! Can’t wait to find out which 5 classic books you choose – may have to steal that idea and pick my own 5 books. Heck, I should probably steal the whole 30 before 30 idea!

    That is a great list. I think you can get to all of them. And making ice cream is pretty easy. I have a couple recipes on my blog.

    Lots of great things on your list!! I’m taking a sewing class next month in hopes of becoming crafty. I need to watch the Godfather trilogy too (and all the Star Wars movies)!
