☆ 30 Before 30 ☆

Since I just turned 29 this past month, I had a realization...I only have one year left in my twenties!!  I've always told myself I wanted to create a bucket list of things I would like to accomplish before I turn 30.  Well, it hit me...I have yet to create this list and I only have 12 short months to make the list and get each and every goal crossed off.  NO PRESSURE!!   When I was younger, I probably would have put travel to Italy, Hawaii, have 2 kids, be a SAHM...but I tried to be a little more realistic given the fact that I have done none of those!!  So, here is my "30 Before 30" list.  Wish me luck :)

1. Run a 5K - Just signed up for Color Me Rad in May 2013!   David and I did the Color Me Rad and had a blast.  However, we didn't run it.  We ran/walked.  I am not crossing this one off until I run the entire thing.

2. Get a Brazilian wax!  Yes....this is really on my list! - This will not happen before I turn 30 but my bff and I have a date for one in August! *Update* I had this horrible experience when I was a couple month pregnant...BIG mistake.  Never. Happening. Again.

3. Go camping.  I haven't been camping since ... well I can't remember the last time I went camping.  

4. Finish my 20 Something, 20 Everything book.  I've had this book for 2 years (I'm not really a book reader) - it's apparently a book that every 20-something woman should read.

5. Volunteer at an animal shelter.  Just couldn't do it.  I would come home with every. single. dog.  Ally would get jealous.  

6. Get a new car - Metallic Black GMC Terrain.    Done - January 23rd!

7. Complete the Insanity workout program again - except this time I will not quit when I only have 2 weeks left like I did last time.

8. Start investing. Just signed up 1/18/2013!!  I feel like such an adult now! :)  

9. Learn how to refinish furniture.  Completed 8/5/2012 - refinished cedar chest!!

10. Complete our wedding scrapbook.

11. Learn how to make homemade ice cream.  I've had an ice cream maker for about 5 years - it's still in the box! Completed 7/4/2013

12. Go see a ballet. David and I saw the Nutcracker this past December - post on that later! 

13. Invest in a good camera bag. - David got me this one for Christmas and I am in love with it - post on that later!! :)

14. Own something Chanel - preferably a necklace or earrings.  Done 7/22/2013  Thank you David!

15. Go to New York - Maybe for my 30th birthday?!? :)

16. Start going to church.

17. Go to an Opera ... fancy clothes and all!

18. Eat at Mahogany Steakhouse. Ate here for our 1 year anniversary 9/3/2012!

19. Go on a road trip with no destination in mind.

20. Watch movies on my "movies you must watch" list.  The girls at work are amazed at some of the movies I've never seen so they made a list for me - it is hanging on my memo board...thanks girls :)  See the list here.  Any more suggestions??
       *A Few More I Haven't Seen*
               - What's Eating Gilbert's Grape - 8/11/12
               - Sixteen Candles (seen it - don't remember it)
               - Pretty in Pink
               - Forest Gump - 11/25/12
               - Breakfast Club
               - Breakfast at Tiffany's - 10/20/2012

21. Reach goal weight of 125-130.  

22. Take my mom on a mini vacation - possibly with my sis.  My mom can't remember the last vacation she took just to relax!!  Completed March 2013 - Alabama

23. Become a Certified Credentialing Specialist - or at least order the study guide (got it on 10/18/12) and start steps!  Taking the test this Spring!  *update* I took the test and failed.  I have to admit, I didn't really study as much as I should have but the test was cra-cra hard!  It had NOTHING to do with the study guide.  I knew when I decided to take it that it would be hard because I haven't actually done "credentialing" in my career...just a portion of it...but I still wanted to try!  I thought I failed horribly but when I got my results, I had only failed by about 25 points!  That's way better than I thought I did so even though I failed on paper, I feel like it was a success!  

24. Go to the horse races at Remington Park.  Must wear a fancy hat :)

25. Complete a yoga challenge.  30 Days of Yoga - Done - February 2nd!

26. Have boudoir pics done.

27. Visit Silver Dollar City/Branson for Christmas. Completed December 2012 - David's parents took us on a trip for Christmas - post on that later

28. Start working out in the mornings.  Done! *update* not so much anymore...I'm more of a late night exerciser and I'm ok with that!

29.  Build a House.  Well not personally...have a house built.  Completed July 2013

30.  Get pregnant!!  Preferably after #26!!  :)  - Done...x2!

Those are so cute!! I love that getting a brazilian wax is on your list!! I need a good camera bag too. I think I found one @ JoTotes I think. I vote Chanel earrings. I want to get boudoir pictures done too and I'd like to get pregnant also after the pictures!! <3

This is such a neat idea! I've always wanted to go on a road trip.

You've already got so many goals crossed off! Way to go!

What a great list! I wish I had done that before I turned 30. Good Luck with the rest of your list!

This is so cool! :) You are well on your way to crossing off everything on your list! One of my blogger friends recently did 40 Things in her 40th year ... I wanted to do it also, but couldn't think of 40 things, LOL! :)
