30 Before 30

Oh hey, guess what! It's my birthday! And I am now a quarter of a century old. I have decided that I am going to set some goals. Thirty goals actually. Thirty goals to accomplish before I turn 30. And what better time to publicly announce and dedicate myself to these goals then my 25th birthday. Some are for fun, some are serious, but I hope to be able to accomplish them, and document them as I do so, here.

01. Host a major holiday dinner.
02. Start having babies!
03. Run a 5k.
04. Run a 10k
05. Read 100 new books.
06. Buy someone's coffee in line behind me.
07. Host a dinner party.
08. Take Justin to a 49ers game.
09. Throw a surprise party for someone.
10. Go to Europe.
11. Get a pet pig.
12. Donate to a charity at least once a year.
13. Join a book club.
14. Travel somewhere I've never been before.
15. Have a girls trip at least once a year.
16. Complete the 12 Days of Christmas Giving for someone.
17. Take a sushi making class.
18. Order dessert first.
19. Stay in bed with Justin all day one day. Reading, cuddling, watching movies, eating take out, taking naps, talking, all that good stuff.
20. Ride an elephant.
21. Hold my headstand in yoga, and come down with control, not because I'm about to fall.
22. Take Justin whale watching.
23. Go to the 4 corners.
24. Milk a cow.
25. See the world's biggest something.
26. Host my own giveaway on the blog.
27. Make a t-shirt quilt for my brother.
28. And for myself.
29. Have a wreath for every holiday.
30. Buy our first home together.

The 30 before 30 Project is actually a real thing that quite a lot of people have participated in. I got the idea here. If you decide to start a 30 before 30 list or you already have one going, I'd love to here about it!

And I'll be back to let you know all about my day, tomorrow!


  1. Love it! I can't wait to see you check these things off of your list!

  2. Love your list! Especially the "own a pet pig" part. How cool would that be?!

  3. Happy birthday! I just turned 25 too! We'll be old together!


  4. So cute! Start number 2 now :) You will make beautiful babes!!

  5. happy birthday!!!!
    i wish i would have made one of these lists when i was 25! but i can still make one at 29 and do it all right?!

    1. You definitely should! I saw someone that did one in just a little over a month!!

  6. I definitely think it's a great idea to write down your goals--it goes a long way for helping you remember to actually accomplish them! I'm doing a 23 before 23 this year. :)
