It’s the big 3-oh!! Wha?

Welcome to the big day. The day that I actually feel like I’m supposed to be an adult now. The day I turn 30! I’m not doing the “29 again” story, I’m going big (or go home, right??)! It started with a coffee run this morning, and awesomely enough, I got my FREE drink at 6:25am on 6/25! Now if only I was also turning 25, oh well.


Sidenote:  Isn’t she a stinkin’ cutie!  Niecey and I were playing peek under the table as she was working on her walking.  She is an absolute doll!

In honor of a little 30 action, here’s 30 things I plan to do while I am 30:

  1. Head to a St. Paul Saints game, their last year in the current stadium.
  2. Marry the love of my life, my battle buddy, my best friend!
  3. Travel to Hawaii for the first time ever.
  4. Take a bike ride around Maui while J and I are there on our honeymoon.
  5. Run my first 5k (not sure when or where, but it will happen).
  6. Meet J’s dad.
  7. Go to a roller derby game.
  8. Move into a loft with J.
  9. Sew myself a skirt with fabric that is all set aside.
  10. Finish the Scrappy Circles quilt and the Tumbling Gnome quilt.
  11. Go snow tubing at the local ski hill.
  12. Make 5 recipes for my Pinterest board.
  13. Re-learn sign language.
  14. Head on down to the Paint Pub with a few of my favorite people.
  15. Pay off all of my credit card debt!
  16. Go shooting at the range at least 5 times.
  17. Reupholster the chaise lounge.
  18. Reupholster our two big comfy chairs.
  19. Lose the pesky 20 lbs that won’t go away.
  20. Teach my niece some amazing things in this world.
  21. Attend J’s graduation for his associate’s degree.
  22. Cross off two other states on my & J’s list of 50 states to visit together.
  23. Cut and donate my hair to Locks of Love.
  24. Fill my Etsy shops, Art in My Soul and Recut Designs, and make extra income with them.
  25. Help J to get a website up, and possibly an Etsy shop, for his ceramics.
  26. Upgrade my phone to a newer model!
  27. Paint a piece of furniture for our new place, whereever we end up moving.
  28. Do the standing paddle boarding at a local lake.
  29. Try out 2 new restaurants that we haven’t eaten at yet.
  30. Go to an art gallery opening and get all fancied up for it.

And there we have it, 30 things to do while I am 30!  I’m ready to start crossing things off!

What is on your list of things to do this year??

  1. Happy birthday!!! I remember turning 30 🙂 Ok I’m only 32 now and will be 33 when we get married. But it does seem like such a “hmm time to reevaluate my life and see if I’m a grownup yet” type of moment for everybody.
