30 Before 30 Update

I was looking back on my 30 Before 30 list and realized I still have a lot to do in the next 7 and a half months!  I also realized my 30th birthday will fall on Friday the 13th.  Um .... I'm gonna choose to see that as good luck!!

Here's an update so far.  It's gonna be a busy summer/fall!

1. Pass the bar.  Thank god.
2. Visit a foreign country I've never been to before.
3. Go skydiving.
4. Learn how to make my favorite Mexican candy, Leche Quemada
5. Start Pilates class again.  I actually looked into this and it's really expensive in my area!  I think I might change this to "Pilates or yoga."
6. Ride a bike.  Still haven't gotten over the fear...
7. Relax on a beach.  YES!!!  And I'm gonna do it again as soon as I can!
8. Treat myself to a professional massage.  The Boyfriend actually treated but I'm counting it anyway.
9. Get cool glasses and actually wear them in public.  Does a walk around the block count as "in public"?
10. Run a 10KI've upgraded this to a half-marathon.  Yowza.
11. Touch up my tat.
12. Start a little garden and grow something.
13. Explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
14. And maybe Disney World, too.
15. See an art show.
16. Go to the symphony.
17. Make bread. Crusty-on-the-outside-warm-and-soft-on-the-inside French bread.
18. Experiment with a new lens.  I got a new lens for graduation last year from The Boyfriend and his dad.  I love it oh so much. :)
19. Make a homemade heart bokeh lens.  Done here and here's the how-to if you'd like to make one of your own!
20. Ride the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier in Chicago.  I'm saving this one for when The Boyfriend and I go back to Chicago for my friend Nikki's wedding.  Can't wait to show him a bird's eye view of the Windy City!
21. Learn how to ski.
22. Sit in a photo booth or two.  See below, though I'm not stopping with just one or two.  I love love LOVE photo booths.
23. Start a camera collection.
24. Road trip!!!
25. Ride a roller coaster.  At Disneyland!!!
26. Go to a local food festival.
27. Make My Love feel truly loved and appreciated.  Now that I think about it, this one should never be crossed off.  It should be more of an ongoing goal.
28. Do more volunteer work.  I've started doing pro bono work through a program with my firm.  It's intimidating but pretty awesome at the same time.
29. Host a fabulous party.
30. Say Yes to something I would normally say No to.

What about you?  Have any "Before" lists or Bucket Lists you're working on? 

(And don't forget to leave a comment here for your chance to win an 8x10 photo from Stephanie Court Photography.  Tomorrow is the last day to enter!!!)

A little photo booth fun with my beautiful friend K.  Our instructions for poses (which we gave to ourselves, of course) were, "Normal, Scary, Silly, Tyra Banks."   I love how we have identical interpretations of "Tyra Banks." 


  1. this is awesome! i just told my husband last night that before kids, he must take me to the the wizarding world of harry potter. he didn't seem nearly as excited as i am. and i'm touching up my tattoo this weekend. i can't wait!

  2. I love this! I turn 30 next month and although I didn't make a "formal" list I did mentally cross off a bunch of stuff that I wanted to do before I was 30 (traveled around Europe 3 different times, grad school, doggy, wedding, marathons,triathalons and started a blog). I do say I should volunteer every year...so I need to work on that...good for you! Eeesh..does that mean I have to start my before 40 list soon?!

  3. so when you plan to do #13, give me a call.

  4. Wow, seems like you're doing great - You've passed the bar AND run a 10k - those two alone are huge things to be proud of! YES start a garden - so fun.

  5. I think I'll have to do a 40 Before 40 list (good Lord, that's my next 'milestone' birthday?!). You've got some really great things on your list. I'd second going to the symphony. Going all out on a formal dress and making a night of it, it sounds great.


Tell me more.
