Thirty Before 30 Update: 10.5 months to go

I have about 10 and a half months until I turn 30... I've made some progress on the list, so I wanted to do a little recap post. I still have a lot to do... but I have some time. 

I decided to repost the whole list this time along with some updates. 


  1. Graduate from College  - All set to graduate in December. 
  2. Get a Teaching job
  3. Lose (at least) 50 pounds 
  4. Quit Smoking
  5. Complete a 5K 
  6. Go a whole month without eating any fast food - DONE!
  7. Try 10 foods that I've never tried before 3 of 10
  8. Make at least 5 Quilts (including one for Parker and Maggie)  2 of 5
  9. Take the Wilton Cake Decorating Class  
  10. Make or do at least 20 things that I've pinned on Pinterest I've done a lot of these, I just need to sit down and figure out how many of them I've done. I may already have 20, but I'm just not sure yet. I may do a post soon with Pinterest inspired projects I've done. 
  11. Watch at least 10 movies, made in the 1980s, that I haven't seen before - DONE!
  12. Watch the entire Sex and the City series in order (including both movies)

  14. Go to a Concert - DONE!
  15. Visit a museum - DONE! We took Parker & Maggie to Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh, NC for one afternoon. They had a great time. I still want to go to some other museums, but for now, this one counts. 
  16. See 3 Plays 1 of 3
  17. Blog every day for a whole month (including weekends)
  18. Write an Alphabibliography
  19. Organize my office
  20. Organize my closet 
  21. Organize my pantry with Tupperware Modular Mates 
  22. Direct the Christmas Play at Church - DONE!
  23. Mail out Christmas Cards by December 1 
  24. 10 Random Acts of Kindness  
  25. Mail 20 cards (not including Christmas cards) 2 of 20
  26. Upload a video of me singing in church to YouTube - DONE! I actually posted 2... Here's one of them:
  27. Have a Girl's Night with my Sister - DONE!
  28. Try 20 New Recipes 2 of 20 
  29. Go on a picnic 
  30. Take a day trip, alone, to the beach
So, that means I have 7 things on the list completely done... 9 in progress and a lot more to actually get done... I'm gonna be cutting it close, but I still feel like I can do all of these things before I turn the big 3-0!

Is it really July?

I know that I say this all of the time, but I really did not mean to be gone from the blog for over a month. I have been so busy (it feels like I always am..) that blogging has been the last thing on my mind. I cannot even believe that it is July. Half of the year is gone... its been an interesting year to say the least, and I'm sure that things will get even more interesting from here.

I will keep this post short, as to ease back into this whole blogging thing. But I do want to outline some goals for July... just to keep me back on track. So, here are things that I want to accomplish during the next 30 days...

1. Blog more. I know that by just making this post, I've blogged more than I did last month... but I have some specific posts that I need to write, and then fill in some fun stuff too. Here are posts to be on the lookout for:

  • Thirty Before 30 Update
  • Vacation Bible School Recap
  • Parker's 4th Birthday Party
  • School Update
2. 31 Days of Thankfulness - So many people do "30 days of Thankfulness" in November on Facebook, and I just wanted to be different... and I need some positivity in my life right now, so I am doing it in July. 

3. Workout 3 times a week 

4. Read 5 books (not for school)

5. Go through things in my house and have a yard sale.

6. Make As in both of my summer classes for the 2nd session. 

I think all of those are manageable. I'll report back at the end of the month. Like I said, short post, but I promise, I will be back more in July... if anyone is still reading...
