Halfway to 30

Almost time to add some candles!
I wish that the title of the post was in reference to my 30B430 list. Sadly no. Somehow in the snot fest of this last week, I totally missed that Wednesday was my half birthday. Which means that I now have less than half a year to finish the things on my list.

So far, I have checked off exactly nine of 30. Not even two thirds of the list. Time to kick it into high gear!

1. Read 30 books for fun
2. Get a second tattoo
 3. Pay off my car payments (early, please) 
4. Share a secret with Post Secret 
5. Watch a sunrise 
6. Run a half marathon 
7. Try out vegetarianism for a month (Okay, almost a month...) 
8. Use my passport 
9. Take a classic American road trip 
10. Quit my soda addiction
 11. Go one month without eating out
 12. Plant a garden 
13. Pass my comps
 14. Propose my dissertation 
15. Move in with my man 
16. Visit a state I've never been to before (AL, AK, AR, DE, HI, ID, MD, ME, MS, MT, NV, NH, NM, NC, ND, OK, OR, PA, SC, TX, UT, VT, WV, WY)...I was missing a few on the list. 
17. Go camping 
18. Relearn Spanish 
19. Get to my ideal weight 
20. Find a great hairstylist 
21. Be in a flash mob 
22. Do a Man vs. Food challenge
 23. Connect with a service organization 
24. Start and finish a scrapbook 
25. Change up my look
 26. Host a dinner party 
27. Find the perfect pair of jeans 
28. Buy myself a really nice piece of jewelry 
29. Go to Las Vegas 
30. (Sorry friends, this one is top secret)

I am on my way, but quite a few more to go. I know that I may not check them all off the list, but I do want to push myself to get as many as I can.

And this is where I need your help. Whatever you can offer me. Motivation. Inspiration. A partner in crime for one of the items on the list. Your Spanish skills. Perhaps you have some sweet hook ups for one of these trips? I am calling in favors. 

It's time to kick it into high gear!     


  1. I can help with the finding of a great hairstylist! Addie at Lovely Salon in Bayview. She. is. awesome!

  2. So, since we aren't ticking off number 17 together, we can tick off 8 (and possibly number 9 depending on if the road trip needs to be overnight). Canada is only 3 hours away from Duluth!

    1. Ann - I need to renew my passport! Yikes! May not get back the new one in time.

  3. Kelly - thanks for the suggestion! I think I found one near me. She is cutting my hair again in a few weeks. I'll keep you posted!
