And Then I Turn 30…

Posted on: March 19, 2012

Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little Blessings
I’m turning 30 this weekend. Thirty. The big 3-0. And frankly, I’m freaking out a bit.

Typically, I don’t think much about age, but this birthday is throwing me. A little over two years ago, I set up 30 goals I wanted to accomplish before I turned 30. I’ve gotten about halfway through the list. It’s not looking like I’ll complete it before Sunday. And with that looming over me, I’ve been wondering, “what have I done for the last two years of my life?“. I figured, I’d do what I do best – make a list of the highlights from the last two years.

1. Bought my dream home

2. Ran a half marathon {3 times}

3. Had my first ever girls weekend in New York City

4. Moved to Texas

5. Attended my first ever blogging conference

6. Bought my husband’s dream home 

7. Saw my best friend get married

8. Found out we were bringing a boy into our very girly home

9. Celebrated not just five, but six years of marriage to an amazing guy

10. Had sweet little Joseph Judea

So, I might not be reaching my 30 before 30 goal by the weekend. But I’d say the last two years {plus the 28 before that} have been down right amazing. Here’s to making the next 30 just as kicking.

LOVE!! Happy birthday to you dear friend. Your original list was the inspiration for my 40 by 40 list, which to be very honest, I’m fearing looking at right now. I’ve done a few things, but not anything close to what I committed myself to. Oh well, it’s good to have goals. 🙂 You are quite impressive in all you’ve done just the past two years. Keep it up, girl! I’m curious though. Which blogging conference did you attend? I’d love to go to one, but I’m not sure if this will be the year I can swing it or not. 🙂

I went to Blissdom last January {2011}. It was really awesome. I’d recommend it if you are wanting to try on out. It happens in Nashville every January or February.

Sounds like your plans turned into His plans! So thrilled you’re okay with that, too. Yes, you have much to celebrate ~ Enjoy! (and for what it’s worth, 30 was my best year to date) 🙂

All for Him,

I’m looking forward to 30! 🙂

I’ve thought about making a 40 before 40 list. But I also like your perspective of counting the things that you’ve done and loved, not just looking at the things you haven’t done yet! (Happy birthday soon!!)

I can see why you feel how you do about 30 and what you’ve been doing. I’m excited to turn 30 but also thinking, oh gosh what’s been going on in my life since college. I know it’s a lot and your list is too! I think what you’ve accomplished is amazing and you can still do what you have left! Maybe make some goal about finishing by 33 or 35 or something haha. Happy birthday week!!
