About a year ago, I posted my “30 before 30” list. You know — my list of 30 things that I want to accomplish by the time I turn 30. Which, at this point, is less than 365 days from now.
I’m already planning on a ‘birthday-project-esque’ hurrah to ring in my big day. But first, I have to make it through this year.
And I have to make it through this list I wrote for myself one year ago:
01 // Become a mom. Hey! I did this!
02 // Run a half marathon.
03 // Go on a family vacation to the beach. We did this over the summer!
04 // Participate in a yoga workshop.
05 // Go to a professional sporting event. I wasn’t anticipating going to three Indians games this year, but we did.
06 // Learn something new by taking a class. Another unexpected surprise was surprising myself with going to Wine & Canvas painting events. It feels good to make it a regular practice to be crafty.
07 // Spend an entire day paying it forward.
08 // Visit Niagara Falls.
09 // Visit Denver.
10 // Pay for the person behind me at Starbucks. I’ve done this — THREE times! And it feels fantastic each and every time.
11 // Go on a wine tour. Check! Girls wine tour, 2012, in the books!
12 // Try a new [to me] exercise class. I tried a new cycling class. But I feel like this only half counts.
13 // Visit an apple orchard as a family. My sweet family of three visited an apple orchard just a few weeks ago!
14 // Participate in the Warrior Dash. I haven’t done this exact race, but I did participate in Pretty Muddy — which was an obstacle course women’s mud run. Sooo basically the same thing. And to be honest, I probably will not do a Warrior Dash. The Pretty Muddy 5k was super rough on my body and I don’t think I’ll do the WD.
15 // …and the Color Run! Does Color Me Rad count?? I think so!
16 // Go kayaking — and finally put our kayaks to use!
17 // Have professional family pictures taken. Thank you, Justine Johnson, for taking our first family photos!
18 // Ride a roller coaster.
19 // Make bread from scratch.
20 // Live a more sustainable life. Complete work in progress!
21 // Eat at Mighty Taco in Buffalo, NY again.
22 // Get a massage. I’ve had FOUR!! Look at this mama go! HA!
23 // Visit the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland.
24 // Attend a social media gathering. Check! #VitamixCLE,
25 // Feel comfortable in a bathing suit.
26 // Visit the zoo. We visited the Akron Zoo on what seemed to be their busiest day of the summer! But it was fun.
27 // …and a museum. Our Fathers Day weekend was spent at the Akron Art Museum!
28 // Take an aerial yoga class.
29 // Have a successful no-spend month.
30 // Play in the snow.
