Technically it’s less than four months out until my 30th birthday (but who’s counting??). Honestly I’m not dreading this birthday whatsoever (the perks of being the youngest of my friends + younger than my husband — love you all! 😉 ). But I am excited to be knocking some items off my list!
01 // Become a mom. Hey! I did this!
02 // Run a half marathon. Registered for the Akron half — ONE week before my 30th birthday!
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. Three Indians games during Summer 2013.
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. Loved that we did this as a family in April.
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, 2013, in the books! It should have been called “Moms Hot-Mess-Express 2013.” Oy.
12 // Try a new [to me] exercise class. I tried a new cycling class. But I feel like this only half counts. I’ve also been doing
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.
I’m also doing Foam Fest in a couple weeks! HOW FUN!! Use code FF5352 when you register!
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. Work in progress!
21 // Eat at Mighty Taco in Buffalo, NY again. My Buffa-LOVE trip completed this in April!
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 AND the Mitchell’s #SweetUp!
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 2013 was spent at the Akron Art Museum! And Ari & I have gone again and again ever since!
28 // Take an aerial yoga class.
29 // Have a successful no-spend month. Done! But I’d like to do this again. Here’s looking at you, July 2014!
30 // Play in the snow. Ari and I haven’t really made it out in the snow. This past winter wasn’t… ideal. In fact, it was well-below freezing for much of the season. Bummer. This may be the only one that I don’t get to. Oh well!
