Well I’m officially less than a year from turning the big 3-0, which isn’t nearly as terrifying as I pictured it would be when I was just a young 25 year old. A perk of having a husband that is four years older than you is that you always feel young ☺️.
I turned 29 two weeks ago, so I decided I would touch base on what I have left on my 30 Before 30 list (you can check out the full list here).
1. Run a 5k in under 30 minutes
I feel like since I have ran a 10k in less than an hour I should be able to cross this one off, but I’m a stickler for rules so I won’t since I haven’t properly been timed in a specifically 5k race. Running is not happening for me lately so I better start back up post baby if I want to cross this one off.
4. Visit Spain
Highly doubtful this is happening. Baby in August, home for the holidays in December, not much time for a European vacation. Maybe it will be bumped to a 5 year bucket list.
5. Tour the Greek Islands
6. Start a family
7. Earn money doing something creative
Does blogging count? I would count Teachers Pay Teachers but I already have that on here.
8. Learn to sew
I should really get on this. I take clothes to the cleaners to get buttons sewed back on.
Still want to do this, plus I’ve heard it’s a good exercise for knocked up chicks.
11. Ride in a hot air balloon
Still want to do this, but don’t want to pay for it.
15. Horseback ride on a beach
I feel like I can find a place to do this here, adding it to my list to look into.
17. Learn calligraphy
Also being added to my list. There’s classes all the time, maybe I can squeeze one in during school holidays.
21. Learn how to make Eggs Benedict
Nope and now I can’t even eat it.
22. Surprise Travis (it’s not easy)
I feel like the pregnancy was the perfect opportunity for this but he was convinced I was pregnant before I even took the test. On to Plan B…
27. Go to Mexico (I just think it’s weird I have never been)
Well, this was supposed to happen in April but not anymore (stupid Zika)
30. Read 100 books (you can see my book list here)
I will need to get pretty ambitious. If I ever finish the 85 pregnancy books I’m reading that would help. I wish blogs counted as books.
So to recap, 14 to go and 3 that are most likely not going to happen (the traveling ones ?, maybe I should swap them for something more feasible- is that allowed?) and 11 things to work on in the next year. I better get busy!
