30 by 30: A Year Later

I have to admit, I kinda forgot about my 30 by 30 list until a friend asked me about it a couple of weeks ago! Thankfully I have completed a few of the things on my list even if I wasn’t consciously thinking about them. Good news is I still have 6 months until I turn 30 – plenty of time to complete most of the items on my list.

  1. Run a 10K I am tweaking this one a bit to an 8K! (Ran the Turkey Trot 11/22/12)
  2. Run a 15K (Chickamauga Chase 4/21/12)
  3. Run a 1/2 Marathon (Given my current state {pregnant!} I won’t be able to run a 1/2 marathon before I turn 3o. But I did run another 15K – The Hot Chocolate Race – so we will count that and mark this one off.)
  4. Take a West Coast road trip (Also give my current state this vacation is on hold. We had planned to go next Fall but after the baby being born in the Spring we’ve decided to postpone the trip a year or so. After all, asking our family to take care of 3 boys for a week is a bit much especially if the baby is only a few months old!)
  5. Own a mini-van  (We got a minivan back in March and I am in love with it. It is great with the 2 boys, and even better when we had the foster babies!)
  6. Become a foster parent (We are officially approved foster parents. Haven’t gotten any calls yet,though.)
  7. Makeover kitchen (Major work (painting & backsplash) is complete – now to accessorize and organize!)
  8. Clogging Performance (I can’t believe I don’t have a picture! Clogged at Ketner’s Mill)
  9. Read through the Bible chronologically (I’m getting in the groove – ClearView is also reading and teaching through the Bible this year which is a huge accountability help)
  10. Get up to date with scrapbooking (Finished & ordered Thomas’ 1st year book! Still to do: 2010/2011/2012 & WDW Vacation)
  11. Do Project Life (maybe for 2013 summer vacations)
  12. Be a guest blogger  (I have been a guest blogger 2 times! So the Cook Said & I’m A Foster )
  13. Wear earrings at least 5 times (1. Brian’s birthday party/ 2. Melina’s wedding/ 3. Sept. 25 because I bought cute owl ones/ 4. Silverdale’s Christmas Tea)
  14. Host Dixon Family Christmas (12/22/2012 – Details HERE)
  15. Lose my “muffin top” (After several months in the gym I was able to button my jeans without the dreaded “muffin top”)
  16. Plant a garden
  17. Take family to NYC (June 2-4, 2012)
  18. Go to New Orleans (I am totally fudging this one because I would rather fudge than not mark it off the list! We didn’t make it to the real New Orleans but we did stay at the Port Orleans French Quarter resort at Disney World. I think that counts – except we didn’t get to see our friends, the Tipton’s.)
  19. Take boys to the county fair (One Sunday afternoon this Fall, my parents and I took the boys to the Hamilton County Fair)
  20. Read 10 books for fun (1. The Pastor’s Wife by Jennifer Allee/ 2. On the Run, 3. In Plain Sight & 4. Invisible by Lorena McCourtney/ 5. Daughter of Joy by Kathleen Morgan / 6. She Makes It Look Easy by MaryBeth Whalen/ 7. Deliver Me From Evil by Kathi Macias/ 8. Never Buried, 9. Never Preach Past Noon, 10. Never Kissed Goodnight, 11. Never Tease a Siamese, 12. Never Con a Corgi by Edie Claire) This really wasn’t even a challenge since I LOVE to read!
  21. Shoot a gun (9/25/2012)
  22. Read 1,000 Gifts and record my own
  23. Buy at least 1 Pinterest inspired outfit  (Bought this DRESS I found via Pinterest)
  24. Learn how to use camera in manual mode or at least how to take a good picture
  25. Make a loaf of bread
  26. Do a Sprint Triathlon
  27. See 4 movies at the theater (1. The Hunger Games 4/4/2012  2. Unconditional 9/21/2012 3. Summer 2013 Monster’s University 4. Summer 2013 Planes 5. Fall 2013 Catching Fire)
  28. Go on a “girls weekend”  (3/30/12 – 4/1/12)
  29. Read 4 books to learn (Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis)
  30. Go 1 week without eating fast food or at a restaurant

      T.J. – We have some friends who live in New Orleans and have been there 2 times to see them. It was so pretty and a lot of fun! I was hoping to get back and see them again.
