dirty thirty

it just kinda hit me recently... i'm going to be thirty someday. and it's going to happen sooner than i meant for it to. just one year, six months and 29 short days... or 576 days to be exact.

i don't feel 28 yet. i don't even feel 25 yet. i still feel like i'm getting away with something when they let me into a bar without checking my ID. so after doing a little research i compiled a list of a few somewhat ideal accomplishments to theoretically be completed by the time i blow out my 30th candle.

  1. complete a marriage counseling course (we skipped pre-marital)
  2. buy a house with my husband
  3. officially take z’s last name
  4. get another computer (we are currently a one laptop household)
  5. wear more hats (figurative and literally)
  6. find a new hobby Zac and I can enjoy together
  7. come up with a regular cleaning schedule
  8. host a girl’s night
  9. host a family holiday
  10. find a signature scent and wear it daily (body mist doesn't count)
  11. get a new stamp in my passport (canada for our first wedding anniversary?)
  12. go on an impromptu weekend trip (camping or staying with friends/family won't count)
  13. find the perfect shade of red lipstick
  14. determine my personal style and purge everything else from my wardrobe
  15. get my hair done (by a professional, in a salon)
  16. create a wedding scrapbook or memory box
  17. print and display wedding photo(s) in our home
  18. pay off my (one and only) credit card
  19. grow vegetables and use them in a meal
  20. make a painting
  21. make a new meaningful friendship
  22. have a true, dedicated guest room
  23. write a letter to myself to read on my 30th birthday
  24. have my own creative space
  25. sell a piece of artwork i created
  26. grow the emergency savings account
  27. eat less fast food and more real meals
  28. take a class
  29. further develop my blog
  30. make us a household notebook
  31. try more new recipes
  32. clean up and update all my iphoto albums
  33. organize our filing and important documents
  34. go to the dentist
  35. send handmade Christmas cards
  36. use my own grocery bags
