Thirty before 30 Update: 1 Month In

Today is the 28th, so that means its time for an update on my Thirty before 30 list. I can't believe that I'm already a month into this. August has seriously flown by. I did make some progress on the list this month. I decided that instead of listing each goal again every month, I will just list the goals that I've made progress on and then tell you what I've done. 

Try 10 foods that I've never tried before:
I made some progress on this one while I was in Florida. They provided a lot of meals, and so I used it as an opportunity to try some new foods. Here's what I tried and what I thought: 
  • Asparagus (I can take it or leave it)
  • Plantains (Super yummy!)
  • Pumpkin Bread (Love it! Especially the new Tupperware Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread)

That's 3 of 10 completed. 

Watch at least 10 movies, made in the 1980s, that I haven't seen before: 
So far I've watched: 
  • Pretty In Pink
  • Girls Just Want to Have Fun
  • Flashdance
  • The Breakfast Club
The movies were pretty good. They have awesome soundtracks. The only one that I didn't really like a lot was The Breakfast Club. Maybe I should watch it again. 
That's 4 of 10 completed.

Read 50 Books
I've only read 1 book so far, but it was a great one! I actually got a chance to read it before it is even released. The book is "Raw Edges" by Sandra D. Bricker. I loved it, and you will be hearing a lot more about it in the coming weeks. 
1 of 50 completed. 

Try 20 New Recipes
Saturday at my Tupperware Party, I made Fruit Salsa served with Cinnamon Chips and it was amazing.  Like seriously, so good. I will be doing a full blog post about it soon. 
1 of 20 completed. 

I think for 1 month, I made some pretty good progress. Can't wait to check some more items off the list and complete entire items. I'm trying to pace myself so that I don't stress myself out and have time to complete everything.

Next update on September 28!

  1. 2 movies for ya: Stand by Me (my all time fave) and Goonies. On Golden Pond (not sure the year of it though). OK that was 3.

  2. Asparagus rocks, but it has to be cooked right.

  3. Pretty in Pink is such a great movie. It's a great romance. See if you can find the recent interview with Molly Ringwald talking about the movie. If you liked the movie that interview will add more to it.

  4. Yeah you need to watch The Breakfast Club again! Girls Just Want to Have Fun is one of my all time favorites. I am so glad you liked that one :) Yay for working on your Tupperware recipes! I've been doing really well with cooking through my cookbooks (many of which are my Pampered Chef ones) and it feels good to be able to work on my business and enjoy a yummy dinner.

  5. I agree with Betsy, watch Breakfast Club once more. I think I remember not liking it the first time, but I picked up on more funny lines the 2nd time. I really like grilled asparagus with a little butter and salt, it's pretty good!
