a list of 30 before 30!

I'm a little startled at the fact that in Septemeber (in five months), I turn 30.  Eeek!  Each time I edit this post, I lose a month!  I better get on this list!

To make this last year in my twenties full of fun, little ambitions, I've followed in the footsteps of dear blogger, Sarah from Yes & Yes, and made a list of 30 things to do before I turn three decades old.

Here we go:
1.  Watch the sunset on a mountain top or on the banks of the sea
2.  Write a piece of slam poetry
3.  Make a terrarium
4.  Have high tea
5.  Have a piece of writing published
6.  Learn a worship song on the guitar
7.  Re-finish my childhood playroom furniture for my kids
8.  Make a good attempt at learning how to yodle--this may or may not be documented
9.  Make homemade nutella and banana crepes
10.  Learn to make Lumpia--a Filipino recipe
11.  Go to the Festival of Balloons
12.  Take a memoir writing class.
13.  Make myself a skirt
14.  Go crab fishing
15.  Take a family bike ride
16.  Go to a flower farm
17.  Go on a roadtrip
18.  Speak to teens about bullying
19.  Finish my book proposal
20.  Do something new with my hair
21.  Go on a hike--a great one.
22.  Make homemade ice cream
23.  Go to a concert
24.  Grow a garden
25.  Start building a food storage
26.  Go on an overnight/hike with Husband
27.  Run a half marathon
28.  Read five more books
29.  Go to Motocross with husband and celebrate our first date together
30.  Go rock climbing

I turn 30 in September too! I haven't started a list because I am trying not to think about it too much, but this has definitely inspired me to think about starting one!

O.K. I turn 60 in July! Talk about depressing! I would advise not to do anything drastic with the hair.....:) It's beautiful!

30 is great!!! You'll love these years!

Okay, I agree with another commenter, nothing drastic on your hair. It's BEAUTIFUL!

A wonderful list. If you need an authentic lumpia recipe let me know. My good friend is Filipino. And she raved all through h.s. just how good her mom made lumpia. I've got the recipe, just never tried it!

Have FUN!

Oh, no. I might need to make a list like this. Then perhaps when I turn 30 I won't feel like nothing has been accomplished in my life so far! ha!

I love this list! I have just under 2 years til I turn 30, and I think it is a great idea to start working on!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
