I felt guilty so . . . here's 30

Thursday, January 22, 2015

I decided since Dan's 31st birthday is on Monday and I am constantly reminding him how old he is (sorry honey) that I should listen to my own banter and get some things accomplished before I'm close to his same age. I've always said that one of the greatest reasons for marrying an older guy, besides the fact that they seem to be a bit more mature, is that you'll always have someone older than you! I absolutely tease and bother Dan about his age probably more than I should, but he takes it all with a good sense of humor. I'm lucky to have someone who will laugh with me, go on adventures, and put up with my bothering him all the time. But before that 3-0 are staring me in the face on my birthday cake in a couple years, I decided what better time than now to put together a list of things I'd like to accomplish before that day comes. So here are 30 things I hope to cross of my list before I'm 30, in no particular order of course, cause what fun would that be!

1 Start a family
2 Rent a houseboat
3 Take a cooking class
4 Host a craft day
5 Climb a mountain
6 Go on a spontaneous weekend getaway
7 See the redwoods
8 Get a forestry tag and go hunting in the forest for our Christmas tree
9 Go zip lining
10 Take Cooper camping (maybe in a yurt instead of a tent)
11 Become a Grand Club member for Relay For Life one year, which means raise $1000
12 Run in a Warrior Dash or other obstacle course run
13 Introduce my Mom to my birth parents
14 Visit NYC - preferably at Christmastime
15 Hike to the top of Multnomah Falls
16 Visit 2 new baseball stadiums
17 Go to Crater Lake
18 Run 2 more half marathons
19 Attend a blog conference
20 Go to an Oregon Ducks football game
21 Host a friends giving
22 Become pen pals with a friend who lives far away
21 Read at least 10 new books
22 Plan a staycation
23 Surprise a friend with a gift every month for a year
24 Take a trip with girlfriends
25 Spend an afternoon on the Portland Brew Cycle
26 Get 1500 followers on Bloglovin'
27 Visit holiday lights displays at The Grotto and Peacock Lane
28 Host a Wine/Dinner Party
29 Get a Tattoo
30 Plan a fun 30th birthday celebration!

Do you have a bucket list you want to complete by a certain time? What things come to mind first when thinking about things you want to do, see or accomplish?

  1. I love this idea! I am turning 26 this summer and I wish I had done something like this before 25! Guess now I have to wait awhile to do one before 30!

  2. This is a great list! I'm turning 27 this summer so I have a feeling a list of sorts similar to this will be making its debut somewhere in my life lol!

  3. I did my 30 before 30 last year and turn 30 in just 45 days or something like that. I'm over half way done and there are a few things that are going to have to go on my next list, but I'm so glad I made it and had something to work toward. Good luck! It sounds like you have some fun things to look forward to!

  4. Eek! How fun! These are so great! Once we build our new house I totally want to host Thanksgiving! And ziplining is the best! So much fun!

  5. Great list!! Especially #13! I can't wait to read about that one! :) And yes to Friendsgiving! I've always wanted to host one - but we are always so swamped around the holidays! Maybe this year! :)

  6. I love the mixture of personal and blog goals - good luck!

  7. I love your list! Here's to hoping you check every one of them off your list before hitting 30!

  8. I don't have a "30 before 30 Bucket List" but I am an avid bucket list aficionado so I guess I should create one! Renting a houseboat is a great idea, I'm stealing that one and adding it to mine :)

  9. for beginners like me need a lot of reading and searching for information on various blogs. and articles that you share a very nice and inspires me .
