30 before 30 – revisited

Posted on: August 10, 2010

Top Ten {Tuesday} This last weekend, Jonathan and I started talking about my 30 before 30 list. In 8 months I’ve managed to only mark off 4 items {with the 5th coming up}. That leaves 26 goals to complete in 20 months. Seems easy, huh? Well, since one of them is to visit Paris {and we all know how that’s going}, I’m realizing some things are going to need to be tweaked.

I’m leaving the list the same for now, but changing what I plan to accomplish before this year ends. Here’s my top ten {and the 6 that are left}:

1. Run a half marathon Finished this one back in April. And actually am crazy enough to consider doing another one in October.

2. Get a tattoo – Took the plunge in April. Might have been the best decision I’ve made all year.

3. Speak before a large audience – Finished this one back in March.

4. Learn to make crepes – Finished this in February. Funny enough, this one seemed the most intimidating {I kid you not}.

Now the ones I still need to complete:

5. Girls weekend getaway – If everything goes as planned, I’ll be spending a weekend in NYC come September. Niiice.

6. Learn to sew a dress – Jon brought my 1960’s Singer sew machine out of the garage this morning. I’ve got it open and am currently learning to thread it. No easy task for this home ec drop out.

7. Submit a recipe to Southern Living – I’m keeping the recipe a secret for now, but plan on experimenting with it later this week. Hopefully it goes well {and makes for a good post ;)}.

8. Read through the Bible – After years of following reading plans, the one year I don’t is the one year I’ve actually read more in my Bible than ever before. Go figure.

9. Finish my wedding album – Really, does my wedding album sit on my dresser half completed, taunting me? Yes, yes it does. And really, is it that hard to put photos in an album? Probably not. But since it’s taken over 5 years to do it, you’d think it was. Haha.

10. Learn to play 3 Christmas carols on the piano – For a while I was teaching myself the piano. Yeah, we’re gonna scratch that. Keep it simple – just learn the carols. And after I found the Smule piano app for my iPad, I’m thinking that might just count.

I did a 30 before 30 List too! Some of them were accomplished before i turned 30 and some a few months after, but I am proud to say that I crossed them all off! Way to go with the crepes!

Love this idea! And I love your goals, too. They are so fun! 🙂

I’ve been married 12 years and still haven’t finished my album. Wait…did I even start it?!

Reading thru the Bible…have you seen the #b90 thing? Where you read thru the Bible in 90 days? It looks cool…oh, where did I see it? Ah: http://www.momstoolbox.com/blog/bible-in-90-days-reading-schedule/

I love this idea, and you have GREAT goals! Way to go on crossing them off. 🙂 I was just thinking about doing something like this as well. I’m such a copy cat! 😉

What a fun list and good job on getting what you have done. I love this idea too, maybe it’s time to make my 30 before 30 list!

I want to learn to sew too! Good luck getting to Paris. Maybe I’ll start a 40 before 40 list.

Submitting the recipe to Southern Living seems like such a big deal to me! Like you need to be brave to do that…which you are….so it’s perfect! I’m a big ol’ fan of goal setting so I just have to say, your list rocks!!

I’d love for you to consider reading through the Bible in 90 days with us!
